    I probably don’t have Plantar Fasciitis
    if you are mountainbiking, like I do getting shoes that fit the purpose is also a good idea, same for any other sport, don’t play soccer in running shoes, don’t mountainbike in running shoes.
    I wear shoes that have a lot of room for the toes, and are wide enough, so with these shoes I think if I had one longer foot it could work fine with same size shoe, just cus of the way the fit is and how I can tighten the laces to make them fit with summer socks, fit with two pair of wool socks.
    I use Five Ten Freerider shoes, very similar size to Adidas, which now actually owns five ten, same case with Adidas running shoes they fit great, and have a lot of room for the toes.
    So these shoes can fit variety of length of feet, which his great, but not all shoes are like this, some I would need a 45 or 46 or 48 or what ever to have enough width, but then shoes would have too much room everywhere else.
    the Freerider shoes are nice to walk in and ride in, but have a quite low sole, so not best to jump or run offroad or gravel with, but for riding with Catalyst pedals, they are excellent, I don’t need a stiff sole, catalyst pedals give support for arch.
    I also remember Diadora had good fit too, I had soccer shoes.
    I got rid of al shoes that don’t fit right.

    Just bought some shoes that seemed comfy in the store and for a few days after, but now my foot really hurts after having felt better for a long time. Perhaps I need to try to rotate a few pairs and that will help.

    I suffered from plantar fasciitis for around 3 years. I tried stretching, night sprint and ice for around 2 years without much relief. After that, I tried a steroid injection as advised by a renowned doctor but after 6-month more intense pain returned. One of the doctors advised me to reduce weight and wear a “doctor extra soft slipper”. As I can’t wear slipper to the office, I bought a pair of gel nimbus as advice over the blogs. **And surprisingly, the pain was gone within 10 days of the use of gel nimbus and doctor slippers. **I just made sure to wear either the show or slippers and never walked barefoot. Gel nimbus 22 was expensive but worth each penny, but not sure about latest nimbus versions.

    I got pf from boots that were too narrow. I didn’t know what pf was otherwise I might have avoided it. It didn’t get better probably because I didn’t know what to do. Eventually I took inserts and shimmed up the arch a large amount and it gave quite a bit of relief. Someone told me to roll the arch and that helped. Eventually it healed after many months.

    Buy Kurus! They are great! A bit pricey but no pain!



  7. Felisters on October 20, 2021 at 6:01 pm

    How long can the heel pain/ plantar fasciitis last?

  11. CHRISTINE MAYER on October 20, 2021 at 6:08 pm

    What is the brand and model of the red shoe?



  12. MidWest Katie on October 20, 2021 at 6:20 pm

    Thank you for your informative video, but nothing else makes me more sad about my foot condition than being a woman with arch problems. Men can hide supportive shoes by wearing all-black runners. I wear a dress every day. Stylish, supportive shoes for women simply do not exist.

    It’s easier to slip comfortable orthotics in your existing shoes than to go buying new ones. Either option is primarily going to provide symptomatic relief until the PF heals by itself.



  14. Ian wallace on October 20, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    I had pf for some time n didn’t know why.I went to Chinese medicine clinic,had one treatment per week for a month,changed the size of my trainers to 1/2 size bigger with arch support,now no further foot issues.👌



  15. Chrissie Hopkins on October 20, 2021 at 6:24 pm

    I agree, with painful feet, we can’t and shouldn’t have to ‘break’ the shoes in. I’ve donated shoes that I have worn once as they were too painful and these were the supposed ‘comfortable’ types. Good point with the socks as well. Swollen and wide feet are a problem and one foot slightly larger than the other, shoe shopping for me is a nightmare!

    I truly enjoy “ Laurel & Hardy” of physio, the light hearted approach to what may be life dulling effect. They keep me attentive.
    Thanks fellows.

    Hello Bob & Brad, can I wear Birkenstock shoes when i have plantar fascitis



  18. Johannes Nilsen on October 20, 2021 at 6:29 pm

    8:28 how the shoes look like underneath if you mountainbike using running shoes after few weeks.
    eventually there will be holes, so probably bad for you.
    So always use shoes intended for the purpose that are well made using correct materials, and fit is important.



  19. SoupCanHarry on October 20, 2021 at 6:33 pm

    Would really appreciate a more basketball-sneaker focused video on this. I typically have to ice my feet for the next day and a half if I get some good runs in. No bueno.



  20. Natalie Bennett on October 20, 2021 at 6:34 pm

    Are there any shoes you recommend for people with lumbar and hip trouble? I typically get Nike and whichever one feels the best. Am I shopping wrong?



  21. Luis Ibarra on October 20, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Hi Bob & Brad. Great videos. Very informative and educational. Why the hesitation on telling us the brand on those “red shoes”. I noticed there’s more than one comment on the subject. I suffer from plantar fasciitis. My arch is about the same as Bob´s. I’d like to try those red shoes myself. Thank you both.



  22. Jasmine Gravador on October 20, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I’m so thankful that I found your channel!



  23. Tonisha305 on October 20, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    I have a heel spur and painful tendonitis, would the same rules apply?



  24. Matt McWenie on October 20, 2021 at 6:36 pm

    Lems, Altra, and Topo Athletic. All zero or minimal drop with wide toe boxes.



  25. IAmADog on October 20, 2021 at 6:37 pm

    I have mid to high arches and I over pronate. I got plantar fasciitis when I switched to neutral shoes and it went away 8 months later when I switched back to stability shoes. However I still get foot and ankle pains and injuries (including minor plantar fasciitis) with these shoes. I tried some arch supported inserts and that got rid of all of those foot and ankle pains and injuries. But when I did a speed workout in spikes (for the first time in a couple months) where I could not use my inserts and I got pretty bad posterior tibial tendonitis from it and I assume the inserts did the job for my posterior tibial tendon and it got weak. Does anyone have any ideas or potential solutions for me? I’m am out of ideas and don’t know of maybe I need different shoes or do some exercises regularly or what.



  26. Jeana Hernandez on October 20, 2021 at 6:39 pm

    I started wearing minimal running shoes. Is this good for long term? I love them but people always tell me I should have more support.



  27. P Streech on October 20, 2021 at 6:40 pm

    In your opinion of course Bob 😂 ✌️



  28. Starkness1 on October 20, 2021 at 6:41 pm

    What is the name of that red shoe @Bob & Brad ?



  29. Danielle Russomanno on October 20, 2021 at 6:43 pm

    How did you guys know I was looking for new sneakers? Perfect timing.



  30. Jacqui Basheer on October 20, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    if you have had morton’s neuroma surgery and shortening of the 3rd and 4th toe, leaving the 5th toe much longer resulting in constant inflammation of the joint, requiring a hard sole shoe (and planta fasciitis as a consequence) is there a shoe that would make walking bearable?



  31. About Creativity on October 20, 2021 at 6:44 pm

    Very good, I buy ´´Lems shoes´´ out of Colorado – they have a ´´box toe´´. = my toes have plenty of room.



  32. Sherry Miller on October 20, 2021 at 6:45 pm

    What is the brand of shoes that Brad has on? He said they are comfortable. This would be helpful to know for a place to start. Thanks!



  33. versatec1 on October 20, 2021 at 6:48 pm

    Hi guys…But before man had shoes or even early shoes there was no arch support…Would not walking with the foot in its natural position like barefoot be optimum?👍



  34. Gigi Smalley on October 20, 2021 at 6:49 pm

    I have Dupuytren Disease on the bottom of both feet and the palms of my hands. What’s your recommendation for shoes for this issue?
