Plantars Faciatis and Shoes...
I bought some New Balance and they sucked. Back in pain, any suggestions on exercises/therapy and shoes to aid with this? thanks

Freeze a canned good and pull it out nightly and roll out the area until it’s numb.

In the morning, heat it up, massage and stretch it.

Other than that, good luck.

Most tennis shoes don’t have proper arch support for plantar fasciitis. Need to get aftermarket insole inserts to go in the shoes.

I tried the New Balance, bought insoles with major arch support... and after 2 days, I couldn't walk.

Went back to asic gels and it at least is much better.

I am having difficulty finding leather or shoes with a more solid outside when it is raining. The Asics and other running shoes are so much mesh that when it rains, I am soaked.

Adidas ultra boosts have been the only shoes that don’t irritate my feet. They feel like walking on clouds. My go to.

Brooks running shoes and Skechers casual work shoes fixed mine and I had it over one year and bought aftermarket insoles and plenty of frozen bottles. None of that shite worked.

Slow morning stretches to help with the elasticity of the torn tendon, before just putting your weight on it and re-tearing what healed through the night. And I ate Aleve like it was candy.

Brooks Glycerin's helped me immensely. After I wore them a few months, I bought a new insole (Aertex) which made them feel like new again. Went to Varsity Sports in BR and had them fit me for the insole. Also, someone gave me a great tip...make sure your bed sheets are not really tight at the end of the bed where your feet are because it stops you from flexing your foot while you sleep. Finally, stretch your calves and hamstrings. Those things combined have eliminated my plantar fasciitis.

They make a vibrating roller called the Vyper Hyperice II. It’s like $165, but the only legit one out there. I run a lot and rolling my feet on it regularly help tremendously. As far as shoes to walk around in Adidas Ultra Boost are extremely comfortable. As far as runnning shoes I think an insert with a proper arch would benefit more than the perfect shoe, however you do wanna find a good shoe for it. Varsity Sports will recommend perfect shoe/arch for your need, even if you don’t end up buying from them.

I had it and I don't anymore. I read up on it and did the frozen water bottle, insoles, etc. Nothing was working so I actually went the opposite way and started strengthening my feet. I started exercising without shoes and went to a minimalist sole. I don't do toe shoes, but I did cut back on support. I do Hindu squats where my fingers touch the floor and I definitely feel it in my feet. I worked into it slowly and now have no issues. I just took a trip to Disney where I averaged over 8 miles of walking a day for 5 days no issues.

I used to use arch supports and all that but I went with the barefoot running to build up the natural supports in the feet. It did help a ton until I hit a rock . Then I started using the vibrams. Never had foot trouble again.

I just felt that by the time I was 50 I would be wearing the male equivalent to nursing shoes. We weren't born with shoes and we don't walk or run nearly as much as we should or could. To me it made sense, strengthen your feet and it will go away.

Did you go to a new balance store? If you go to the store and stand on the machine they usually recommend insoles. There are special ones for plantar fascitis that new balance makes....they have gotten my feet better 3 times now when I have a flare up

What shoes did you get and what did you do to strengthen your arch?

I have horrible flat feet and have been working on things to help them but I’m skeptical you can actually do something about this. And my ego won’t let me wear the toe shoes.

I have really high arches but you can see muscle build in the arch with the running barefoot. IDK how that will apply to a flat foot though.

I used to have major foot pain, but switched to Asics Kayano. My feet get sore sometimes but not near what they used to in the past.
