Best Brooks shoes for Women with plantar fascitis

The Seattle-based Brooks is the number one selling shoe brand in running stores. This is because the running-only Brooks has stayed innovative while remaining true to the foundational success of its top styles, such as the Adrenaline, Ghost, and Glycerin. When a new runner wants their first running shoe, Brooks is often the perfect entry shoe since its award winning styles can fit almost any stride. And for the long time runner who has worn Brooks for years, there's no reason to try another shoe since the brand works great mile after mile.

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.
