Re: Shoes for Plantar Fascitis

There is no one shoe that is right for everyone as each persons feet differ. I do not think that a shoe alone is always the answer. Sometimes an orthotic, whether pre-fab or custom made are helpful. I recommend SAS shoes, New Balance athletic shoes, Brooks, Saucony, Avia, Easy Spirit shoes. By no means is this a complete list. I hgenerally discuss a patients needs and wants before making a recommendation. There are people who would not consider spending more than $25 for shoes and others who think $250 is nothing.

The only Earth shoes I have seen are carried in Walmart. They do not appear to be the same negative heel concept from back in the 1970's.
