Best Saucony shoes for Women with plantar fascitis

You'll rarely see an ad for Saucony, which is one of the best selling running shoe brands in the world. But the Boston-based running company, which has been around since 1898, has a well-earned reputation for quality and a very loyal following. From lightweight shoes like the Kinvara to heavily cushioned shoes like the Triumph ISO, Saucony has won numerous awards and today is the number three running shoe brand sold in run specialty stores.

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.

Reviewers say the best thing about this shoe is:

  • Durability, weight, and cushion
  • The Everun mid-sole because it provides the perfect amount of cushion.
  • The cushion that it gives. After the shoe is broken in, it feels like slipping on a glove but I don't feel the impact like I do with other shoes.

Reviewers rate this shoe as being helpful for those with plantar fascitis.
