I’ve had problems with my plantar fasciitis (heel) off and on, lately it has been more annoying than usual. I’ve bought orthopedic stuff, walked indoors in slippers and so on.. nothing seems to help much.
For some, laying off the heel seems to work (RICE) – and it has to some extent for me as well.. but I think my fundemental problem is that my feet are too weak.
That’s why I have now gotten these Vibram Five Finger shoes.. and so far they are the most comfy “shoes” I have worn. Don’t get me wrong though, walking on asphalt is hard work and I am taking it slow. After the first day of wearing them however I woke up the next day with no stiffness in my heel – something that I’ve had for a month now.
We’ll see how it goes!
