Plantar Fasciitis inserts
 
Plantar Fasciitis inserts can be difficult to find, and I know you know they are important. So how do you know if you are getting the right one?

As someone who has been in shoe service for 15 years and had plantar fasciitis 3 times in my life, I've found some seemingly counter intuitive things to look for in an arch support.

The first thing is you obviously need it to be strong, with a pronounched arch. Not so counter intuitive, but this is the starting point when looking for Platnar fasciitis inserts.

The second thing is you want to make sure the insole is rigid. Being able to bend the arch in half means its not going to do jack squat for your feet.

Finally, and this is one of the counter intuitive things. Avoid excessive cushion like the plague. I was rather suprised to figure it out. highly cushioned insoles barely do anything for your feet when you have plantar fasciitis.
