Turf Shoes for Plantar Fascitis
Any suggestion on a turf shoe that would help me heal up my plantar fasciitis? Thanks!

M56 - I fell victim to the dreaded plantar fasciitis inflammation this past February and hopefully I’m finally close to 100%. My podiatrist told me to get 1) the best insert I could find and the widest, most comfortable running shoe and/or turf shoe to wear. I played with New Balance 520V5 running shoes and New Balance 410V6 trail running shoes. But prior to that, I replaced all of the factory inner soles with “pure stride” inserts in every pair of shoes I frequently wear including bed room slippers. What a difference these make in the healing process. Hope this helps.

These Work for me. I Suggested to others and worked for them as well.I highly recommend.
Buy the original not the gel. The gel moves while the original stays firm to the arch. Wear everyday in all of my shoes not just softball shoe. Avoid Boombah shoe (I wear 3N2) and avoid wearing sandals. Sandals offer no support to the foot or achilles.I would wear these in any softball shoe regardless of Brand.No off the shelf softball shoe on the market offers support for Plantar fasciitis.If you Buy a new pair of shoes buy or add an insert of some sort. All you get is a flat piece of foam that does nothing to support the foot.

Remember this, even though the sides and bottoms of your shoes may not be worn out, the insoles could be and then they are no longer providing the proper cushioning for the impact of running.

YEP OZ40 is right on!! If you don't buy new shoes every season at minimum change the insoles. I learned all of this the hard way but avoided surgery by "trying" the heel seat insole just to see if the hype was real and now back in the outfield and walking and running without pain.

I had it really bad in my right foot a couple years ago. Unbelievably painful. For me, the most important things were wearing an insert in all of my shoes all the time and constantly stretching my toes up towards my knees. When you sleep, your feet automatically relax in the wrong direction so I rigged up a long arm stretch band around my waist like a belt and the other handle around my foot to pull my toes back. This worked wonders. I still consciously stretch my feet when laying down and haven't had an issue since.
