Studies say approximately 10% of people have plantar fasciitis at some point during their life.
It is important to properly measure both of your feet to determine the length, width, and most importantly, the arch of each foot.
Shoes with poor arch support can also cause the bottom of the foot pain.
– Minimalist shoe – High Heels – Flip flop – Worn out shoes
Shoes that are not comfortable due to over or under cushioning or construction may result in an altered gait pattern and thus may lead to further discomfort.
Cheaply made shoes, boots, sandals and slippers provide very weak cushioning and support.
Shoes that are either too stiff or too hard soled cannot protect the feet.
Wearing shoes that are zero heel-to-toe drops may also aggravate the condition.
