Best shoes for Women with plantar fascitis who need good support

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.
