Can anyone recommend affordable work shoes for plantar fasciitis

Can anyone recommend affordable work shoes for plantar fasciitis I normally go for sketchers but read on a podiatrist site last night that they’re not as good as I thought as the memory form collapses to quick

      I have had on-going issues with my achilles and did a little research and got myself a pair of Brookes

      If you invest in some good quality interchangeable orthotic insoles the shoes are irrelevant as the insoles take the strain

      Isn’t that really horrible … I love walking but it’s just so painful … I find Fit flop shoes slightly helpful … I’ve tried all manner of insoles but they make my shoes too tight … overall, a shoe where the insole is padded and raised plus daily exercises to gently stretch the calf muscle instep

      Thanks Wayne yes the pain is excruciating at times I’m on my feet all day at work as a furniture finisher and some days I’m in agony by the end of the day but it’s only for periods of time this changeable weather doesn’t help
      It’s mostly caused by an old injury I tore the tendons in my foot when I turned my foot over whilst carrying a bag of compost down some steps

      Get a referral to your Orthotics clinic ( GP)

      Ask GP to refer you for steroid injections into foot ( under light General anaesthetic )

      I had this for a few years and walked like an ancient granny, it was because i was wearing shoes and flip flops with thin soles ie the ballet type shoes and pretty flip flops. I started wearing thicker soles and it has now gone. Soleflex are comfy and there are some nice ones at Deichmann and Clarks if you can afford them.

      If you go running or walking a lot you need to “keep off the paths”…concrete is a big cause of Plantars. Oh and you need a good sole on your slippers too!

      ask Scholes; and clarkes often have a few specialists dotted around the country . When I was little I had slightly built up arches to stop ‘flat footedness’. Clarkes (Parnells) in my home town were excellent.

      Hello, Woodcrafter-Keith! I’m not familiar with plantar fasciitis, but I recommend you wear the models with the comfortable sole. Personally, I wear the Air Jordan 1 models every day for work and the gym. I use 2 different pairs, but the same models. They are very comfortable and help me to keep my feet in a healthy state without the risk of overextending my foot muscles. If you need my suggestions on the online shops where you can buy this model, check this site https://www.grailify.com/en/air-jordan-1-releases/.
