Danform Staff Picks for Plantar Faciitis and Foot Pain Relief- Fall Edition

The agony of foot pain.  It's a problem we discuss everyday with our Danform customers. While we always recommend working with a medical professional to treat foot issues, we also know that footwear is an essential component to heal and, ideally, prevent foot pain
We asked our Experts for their top Fall picks to support and soothe your feet.   We think you'll love their list of fashionable, functional footwear that hits the mark for exceptional fit.

Fashionable and Foot-Healthy Shoes
