Plantar Fasciitis (which can lead to heel spurs) is a persistent
pain located on the bottom of the heel and the inside of the foot. The
plantar fascia is a fibrous, tendon-like structure that extends the
entire length of the bottom of the foot. During excessive activity, the
plantar fascia can become irritated, inflamed and even tear. Improper
shoe selection can cause the injury, including stiff-soled shoes that
stretch the tendon, and over-worn shoes that allow the foot to pronate.
Drew footwear has superior insoles that support the arch and reduce
tension on the tendon. Each pair has extra room for orthotics, which are
commonly prescribed to help alleviate the pain and tension of plantar
fasciitis. Drew's extended medial stabilizers in the heel provide needed
support and stability for this condition.
