I need help buying stability running shoes online - yes, it's not a great idea, but they've got good sales going on today and free return shipping.
I've got high arches and over-pronate, and for the past few months I've had plantar fasciitis. Over the weekend I got a pair of Saucony Hurricane 12 and LOVED the arch support and cushiness. (My very old pair of Asics was a bit too hard on the heel and didn't have enough arch support.) I also got some Powerstep pinnacle orthotic inserts that really helped with the arch support.
Because of the plantar fasciitis, I need to rotate between shoes. (Currently, I can only wear running shoes. Stupid plantar fasciitis!!!)
Please help me find something comparable to the above shoes and inserts.
Any tips or suggestions on plantar fasciitis are very welcome as well. (I stretch, use the water bottle with ice, and take anti-inflammatories. )
