AT LAST, SHOES THAT OFFER RELIEF FROM PLANTAR FASCIITIS
If you’ve ever experienced a persistent stabbing pain on your heel — especially when you get out of bed in the morning — then you know all about plantar fasciitis.
This common orthopaedic complaint can cause nagging discomfort that makes walking almost unbearable. While many runners battle this condition while exercising, for many that are on their feet all day at work, this can turn your job into a nightmare.
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick ligament that connects your heel to your toes. A sharp pain in the centre of your heel will most likely be one of the biggest symptoms of plantar fasciitis, and in worst-case scenarios prevents people from moving at all. Despite its insidious nature, it's one of the most prevalent orthopaedic ailments, with an estimated 1 in 10 people suffering in their lifetime.
Since 1978, Toffeln has been creating shoes for those standing for long periods of time and are the footwear brand of choice for healthcare professionals across the UK.
The Toffeln SmartSole Range of plantar fasciitis shoes receives praise from sufferers of this condition with its cupped insole, contoured footbed and customisable arch support that stops your feet from flattening out and limits pronation. It offers extra support around the midfoot to prevent impact on the heel and evenly distributing your weight across the whole foot.
