Fall and Winter Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis Recovery

Fall and Winter Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis Recovery

If there is one lament Danform Shoes hears most often, it's the pain of Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis can be excruciating; if you haven't felt the nagging ache in your heel or the sharp stab with each step, consider yourself lucky and keep buying healthy footwear!

When you come to Danform Shoes with a plantar fasciitis diagnosis, rest assured our fit experts will give you a sympathetic ear and happily guide you through the footwear to support your feet through recovery.  It won't happen overnight, but keeping your foot cradled in supportive footwear speeds you back to a pain-free day on your feet.

Luckily, healthy footwear is what Danform Shoes does!  You will find thousands of fall and winter shoes on hand for every activity or style, for men, for women, for younger athletes to retired seniors.  Your friends have your back.  We've got your arch!

Those Everyday Shoes You Wear Over and Over

Birkenstock's cork footbed is legendary for its healing comfort.  Comfort happens when your foot is cradled in all the right places keeping it ergonomically correct.  The Birkenstock Buckley and Boston do just that.  Both styles are equally at home kicked up on the couch with your takeout or out and about running errands.

 

With this season's quarantine comfort craze, Socks and Stocks with your favorite Birkenstock Arizona is another popular fall Plantar Fasciitis pairing!

A Little Dressed Up

Many women come to us concerned that a women's dress shoe for plantar fasciitis might be impossible to find.

Hands down house favorite, the Taos Crave can bring a customer to tears of joy with its healing powers.  Catie, a physical therapist who suddenly developed Plantar Fasciitis, was impressed by the Crave's super cute style and its unbelievable comfort.  It was just the hug her aching feet needed to make it through her shifts.  Available in neutrals to bold reds and plaids, the Taos Crave is a gift for your feet - either on the road to recovery or proactively to keep your body healthy from the feet up!

For a lower heel with support and polish, we carry many Dansko models like the Fawna and Franny that carry the APMA (American Podiatric Medical Association) seal of acceptance.

Clocking Your Time or Clocking In For Your Shift

Talk to a Physical Therapist about running with Plantar Fasciitis and you'll hear the words Hoka One One Bondi.  Not just for runners anymore, the Bondi is often part of Plantar Fasciitis recovery for medical workers, restaurant staff, hair stylists and teachers.  When your shift is long, the Bondi keeps you strong.  Until you have pain under control, an athletic shoe may be your best work shoe for plantar fasciitis.

 

Hiking Boots to Wear Trail and Town

Everything that makes a hiking boot good for an active day on your feet also makes it a great choice for your everyday footwear.  We see so many customers pulling double duty with hikers that fit the bill for office casual.  Athleisure has turned sport style into everyday style making the hiking boot an appropriate look at a client meeting or a fireside meetup with friends.  

Oboz, a little known brand with the best fit on the market introduced the Bozemen this fall, a waterproof urban hiker for men and women.  

Snappy Sneakers for the Win

If your style is more about athleisure - and whose isn't now that we spend more time than ever at home -  then you'll want to explore our favorite athletic casuals from Taos.  A match for any age, any style.

 

Never Go Barefoot - Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis Recovery

One rule to live by - never go barefoot, even around the house, and always choose footwear that supports your arch.  Everytime you allow your foot to take a step without arch support, you invite a flareup.  Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis from Taos and Haflinger are just the happy home your foot needs on a chilly winter day.

The Taos Wonderwool is a house (or patio) shoe with incredible arch support.  The slip-on design with a full back feels cozy and secure.  Its rubber bottom also makes it the perfect indoor/outdoor wool clog.

Orthotics Help to Heal that Heel

Our FIT EXPERTS believe that you don't have to buy new shoes or spend a lot of money to combat Plantar Fasciitis.  Purchasing a quality orthotic like Superfeet can turn your tried and true favorite shoe into a foot healthy option.  If orthotics are new to you, read our blog post to learn how orthotics can improve your foot health!

Orthotics + Blundstone is a best selling Vermonty combination.  Is there anywhere that it's not appropriate to wear a Blundstone?  The Blundstone option is a great work or dress shoe for men with plantar issues.

Orthotics can also solve another common quandary for Vermonters with Plantar Fasciitis.  What to wear for a true snow boot?  Any snow boot that has a removable footbed can be transformed into a warm, dry and arch supportive cold weather boot.

 Add a  Superfeet orthotic to a pair of ULUs and you have a warm, foot-healthy winter boot.

Once you've had Plantar Fasciitis, your foot is forever vulnerable to it.  Lifelong recovery means always choosing arch supportive shoes for every season.
