Best Hoka One One shoes for Women with plantar fascitis

Born in the French mountains, the maximalist pioneer Hoka One One (meaning fly over the earth in Maori) has exploded in popularity in recent years. That's because the light, highly cushioned shoes are great for trail runners, ultra runners, or people simply looking for an easy, light ride. Today, Hoka One One is found in nearly every running store and is the most popular shoes at ultra marathons.

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.
