Best Asics shoes for Men with plantar fascitis

Over the past 30 years, Asics has made some of the best running shoes on the market. The Gel-Kayano, Gel-Cumulus, and GT-2000 series have been three of the best selling running shoes on the planet. That's because Asics' long commitment to quality and wear testing has produced shoes that runners get hooked on--and never want to take off.

Plantar fasciitis is caused by an overloading of the connective tissue that runs from top of the foot to the heel. Although overuse and poor foot structure can lead to the issue, wearing the wrong shoe for your foot type and gait can cause pain in the plantar fascia. A super cushioned sneaker can often ease the problem, as can simply replacing a shoe that's already well-trodden.
