Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis

Slippers today are not just fluffy shoes with a thin sole and no cushioning or support.

Today, we have slipper designs with just about as many comfort features as walking and running shoes.

Especially slippers for Plantar fasciitis should come with proper support and cushioning features.


Benefits of Wearing Appropriare Plantar Fasciitis Slipper

But why should you regularly wear slippers?

Slippers offer a comfortable alternative for wearing at home to give your feet a rest from your daily work or sports shoes and help your feet breathe or stay warm in colder weather conditions.

Other than that, good slippers have many other benefits;

  • Help with Swollen Feet – Slippers can provide comfort and relief from swollen and aching feet as they have a much roomier design and comfortable cushioning.
  • Proper Balance – With the technology used in today’s slippers, they have support features that improve balance and provide stability. Generally, you will be a more stable and good pair of slippers than bare feet or in uncomfortable flip flops and slippers.
  • Prevents Infections – The floor of your house is never absolutely clean; it is advised to keep your feet covered for protection against fungal and bacterial infections. So whether in your home or elsewhere, slippers proved a protective barrier against disease-causing fungus and bacteria.
  • Ward of Illness – did you know that walking bare feet on cold floors causes colds and cases of flu. Because your body continuously loses heat through your feet, your immune system becomes weakened, and you are more prone to the cold and flu virus.

How to Choose Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis

Whether you suffer for little or very much pain with Plantar Fasciitis, it is still vital to get proper cushioning and support from your shoes, and that counts for your slippers as well.

Look for slippers with these basic features to prevent and alleviate Plantar Fasciitis;

  • Good Arch and Heel Support – One of the pain features to look for is arch and heel support when you have plantar fasciitis. Make sure that the footbed of the slippers either has a more anatomical and contoured shape or proper arch support and heel support.
  • Extra Rigid Sole – Someone with Plantar Fasciitis needs a sole in a shoe and slipper that is more rigid than flexible, a thicker midsole, and a rocker bottom design sole can also be ideal for alleviating the pressure of the heel and midfoot.
  • Firm Heel Counter – The Back part of the heel of the slippers needs to be slightly firmer to minimize abnormal stretching f the Plantar fascia to prevent further pain and inflammation in the heels and arches of the feet associated with Plantar fasciitis.
  • Cushioning – The footbed or sole needs to have soft underfoot cushioning and firmer midsole cushioning to absorb impact and provide a comfortable platform for your feet. Additional heel cushioning is always welcomed when you have plantar fasciitis.

  • Uppers – Slippers usually have either a soft suede or nubuck leather uppers, textile uppers, or soft cotton uppers in your summer styles. They may have a lining for winter such as fleece, shearling or faux fur. Summer design slippers may just have a textile lining. The Uppers may vary in style, from comfortable mules, to closed design and ankle boots designs, as well as slide ons and even flip flops design slippers.
  • Cushioning and Support – The slippers we have chosen all have a cushioned footbed with good arch support or a contoured shape for support. Foam or memory foam cushioning can be used for comfort and shock absorbency.
  • Outsole – You get indoor and outdoor slippers with different types of outsole. Your outdoor slippers will have a more durable and slip-resistant rubber outsole, whereas your indoor slippers will have a leather or EVA outsole.
  • Options – Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis do come in a variety of color options, some models of wider widths and extended size options.
