Best extremely durable shoes for Men with plantar fascitis

There are durable shoes and then there are extremely durable shoes. Extremely durable shoes can withstand pavement pounding and trail climbing. They're shoes that go past the traditional 300 mile replacement mark and allow you to get up to 600 miles. And while we wouldn't recommend giving them as heirlooms to your children, extremely durable shoes truly can withstand the test of time.

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.
