Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Best Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis Sufferers

Plantar Fasciitis

For those afflicted with plantar faciitis, the term needs no explanation. Around 2 million people are treated annually for the condition, which is characterized by chronic, searing heel pain. As you might imagine, it takes its toll on the tennis-playing population.

Caused by a straining of the connective fibers (or fascia) that support your arch, plantar fasciitis is difficult to cure. While stretching, ice therapy, and orthotics can help in the healing process, a good pair of shoes can work wonders if you’d rather play through the pain than take time away from your tennis.

Take a look at a few of the best shoes on the market for players dealing with a pesky plantar fascia...

The New Balance WC804W and MC804W come complete with aggressive, graphite-reinforced ROLLBAR technology, offering unparalleled support to the lateral and medial sides of your foot. Abzorb technology also provides cushioning in your forefoot for extraordinary comfort levels. According to New Balance representatives, the WC804W and the MC804W are some of the most supportive shoes on the market (and they’re durable, too!). Enjoy a classic look with additional stability and comfort for pain prone feet.

Adidas Barricade 7.0

Adidas gets in on the comfort game with the Barricade 7.0’s. A staple of the adidas shoe lineup for years, the Barricades are widely known for their durability. But as it turns out, their stability and cushioning make them perfect for plantar fasciitis sufferers. Adiprene technology in the heel and Adiprene + in the forefoot combine with adidas’ patented Torsion arch support system to create a sturdy pillow (oxymoronic as that might sound) for your fascia.

Make sure to check out all of the fun and funky Barricade 7.0 colors for men and women!

You’ll have to wait until December to get your hands on the K-Swiss Big Shot II, but from what we hear, it’s worth the wait. The new model includes Plantar Support Chasis (PSC), which is a 360 degree thermal plastic support device that will enhance mid-foot and heel stability. The PSC 360 technology will come not a day too soon for those afflicted with plantar fasciitis. And while the Big Shot II may not be available quite yet, make sure you check out the original K-Swiss Big Shot (made for men and women) to experience Propulsion Plate technology. Designed specifically for midsole cushioning and stability, these shoes won’t disappoint (and they come in lots of fun colors!).

With new technology developing every day, we hope plantar fasciitis pain will one day be a thing of the past. Until then, give a pair of these great tennis shoes a try!
