Best Running Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis

An estimated two million Americans suffer with plantar fasciitis. If you find yourself having intense and unbearable heel pain, made worse while wearing sneakers or exercising, chances are you do too. It’s considered incredibly common, and about 83 percent of active adults between the ages of 25 and 65 will experience (and suffer!) from plantar fasciitis at some point in their life.

And for those who experience this heel pain, choosing the right running shoe is incredibly important. Not just for comfort, but to prevent further heel pain, or worse, greater injuries from forming.

For running with plantar fasciitis, you should look for a shoe that offers support, cushioning and heel and arch support. The Brooks Ghost sneaker is the perfect package. These shoes boast high energizing cushioning, with their BioMoGo DNA and DNA LOFT cushioning technologies working together to provide that “just right” feeling – comfortable, but not too soft that your foot isn’t supported.

Promising a “smooth, stable ride”, Brooks’ Segmented Crash Pad technology is a shock absorbing system to cushion every single step and stride for longer, more comfortable runs.

With 29 different color options, and sizes ranging from 4.5 to 13, in both half and full sizes as well Regular, Narrow and Wide options, there’s a Brooks Ghost shoe for everyone!
