I need some shoe recommendations to help with my plantar fasciitis. Issue: a lot of sneakers/tennis shoes make my feet too hot.
I have flat feet. I had orthotics briefly in high school due to foot pain - I hated them. For a short distance, they felt great, but by the time I walked across the school in them, they hurt so bad I cried. I stopped wearing them.
Cut to 10 years (of no foot pain) later... I've just been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in my right foot. The pain is actually more in my arch than my heel, and my arch has a small swollen area. The podiatrist gave me a foot brace and told me not to go barefoot, and to wear sturdier shoes. (I've been wearing canvas shoes from walmart, which he said are too flimsy.)
I have a pair of New Balance shoes that I wore when I worked on my feet all the time - the problem is, they make my feet way too hot. What kind of shoes should I look for that will be supportive enough, yet cooler? If I must wear socks in the summertime with the shoes, I'd like to wear the really thin kind... will this be a problem?
Also, previous questions
mention not going without shoes even around the house, to the point of wearing them in the shower. Any recommendations for shower shoes made for this purpose? What about a good around-the-house, only-worn-inside shoe?
