Plantar Fasciitis

Walking barefoot, or in flimsy shoes without sufficient arch support, can overstretch, tear, or inflame your plantar fascia. 

Culprit: Ultra-High Heels

Problem: Unnatural Foot Position

Solution: Go Low

Problem: Ankle Sprains

Culprit: Stilettos

Solution: Chunky Heels

Culprit: Flip-Flops

Problem: Plantar Fasciitis A band of tissue called the plantar fascia runs along the bottom of the foot. It pulls on the heel when you walk -- and it works best with the proper arch in your foot. Walking barefoot, or in flimsy shoes without sufficient arch support, can overstretch, tear, or inflame the plantar fascia. This common condition can cause intense heel pain, and resting the feet only provides temporary relief. 

Better: 'Fitted' Flops

Sporty, fitted sandals and other "toning shoes" are designed for a more intense workout while walking. The American Council on Exercise says there's no evidence to support that claim, but they may have other benefits. The thick sole keeps your foot off the ground and away from debris. And Brenner points out, "they do have really good arch support." Several have a seal of approval from the American Podiatric Medical Association. 

Culprit: Pointy Toes

Problem: Bunions

Solution: Wide Toe Box
