Best Mizuno shoes for Men with plantar fascitis

The Japanese shoe maker has been making running shoes for decades. Today, Mizuno running shoes are best known for their Wave Plate technology, an undulating plastic that has helped make the brand's shoes some of the most durable on the planet. Mizuno shoes, from their popular Wave Rider to their award winning Catalyst, are found on runners' feet across the world, many of whom have a deep allegiance to the brand.

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.
