BEST SHOES FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Casey Kerrigan’s published medical research on human movement and the long term effects on the body of high-heels and other common features in women’s shoes became the scientific foundation of a better shoe design. Designed specifically for a woman’s anatomy and natural movement, OESH is the shoe of choice to help promote a healthy plantar fascia ligament.

BEST SHOES FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Harvard Medical School graduate Dr. Casey Kerrigan’s published medical research on human movement and the long term effects on the body of high-heels and other common features in women’s shoes became the scientific foundation of a better shoe design.

RECOMMENDED SHOES FOR PLANTAR FASCIITIS

NATURAL MOVEMENT & NO TOE SPRING

Traditional shoes have an elevated heel, arch support, and toe spring. Each of these contours, especially in combination, distort the natural anatomy and function of the plantar fascia. Toe spring particularly–the curling upward of the toe area of a shoe–places an abnormal stress through the plantar fascia, and in combination with a narrowed toe-box, may restrict blood flow to the bottom of your foot, which can contribute to the intense pain at the insertion of the fascia and heel. OESH Footwear offers the only stark contrast to this trap. Allowing the foot to move without impediments rebuilds core foot musculature, with the obvious consequence of a naturally stronger foot becoming one and the same, a healthier foot.

TYPICAL DESIGN

A typical shoe inhibits your foot’s full range of motion with heel elevation, arch support, and a toe spring. This is like wearing a cast on a broken arm forever.

OESH DESIGN

The uninhibited footbed of OESH allows your foot to move naturally. Engaging the small muscles in your foot with regular daily activities rebuilds native foot strength–well-described in this educational blog from Dr. Kerrigan: https://oeshshoes.com/2018/07/exercising-your-foot-core/

ACCOMMODATES ORTHOTICS

Orthotics are often prescribed for plantar fasciitis and custom orthotics in particular can be very helpful in providing relief of pain at least for the short term. Because of its uninhibited flat platform, OESH shoes accommodate orthotics very well. Simply replace the removable insole with the orthotic.

DEVELOPED BY DR. CASEY KERRIGAN

Dr. Kerrigan’s research suggests that there are features in traditional shoe designs that aggravate plantar fasciitis. OESH Shoes are designed differently–featuring more room for a full range of movement and maximum blood flow to nourish the heel–on a unique elastic spring sole that always promotes your natural biomechanics and motion.
