Top 5 best insoles for plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a very painful condition that can cause a sharp pain in the arches of your foot. This pain is usually worse first thing in the morning when you are taking your first steps of the day but will usually subside with activity. You will often develop plantar fasciitis when the plantar fascia ligaments that supports the arch of your foot becomes inflamed. This inflammation can be triggered through persistent unnatural load and pressure being exerted onto the arch more typically from bio-mechanical imbalances such as over pronation and supination that affect your gait. Plantar fasciitis is more commonly found in people with weakened feet such as the elderly, people who are obese, people who use their feet a lot such as athletes or people who have flat and high arches.

One of the best ways to treat plantar fasciitis is to wear a pair of orthotic arch support insoles, these insoles will help to take strain off your arches and correct any bio-mechanical imbalance that you may be causing your plantar fasciitis.

#1 Nuovahealth Arch support insoles

When you have plantar fasciitis you will need to take as much strain and tension off your arches as possible. To do so you will need a pair of insoles that have lots of rigid support. These Arch support insoles from NuovaHealth have made from carbon fiber and will give your feet lots of rigid arch support. This rigid support will help to reduce strain and pressure on your feet and plus will make sure that your feet are positioned and aligned correctly reducing the risk of further damage and injury to your affected foot whilst your plantar fasciitis recovers.

You don’t have to have plantar fasciitis to wear a pair either. Due to the fact that they are made from lightweight carbon fiber means that these insoles are perfect for runners and athletes who suffer from foot pain. They are also good for people with high arches and flat feet who are more prone to overstretching and damaging the plantar fascia. If you are someone who is constantly on your feet these insoles can help. Being on your feet all day can cause pressure to build-up underneath the soles and heels of your feet which can over time cause damage, pain, and injury. However, these insoles have been specially designed to help spread this pressure evenly throughout your feet so that pressure can no longer cause damage to them.

Main features include:

  • Inbuilt arch support to help prevent arch strain and common overuse injuries such as plantar fasciitis
  • Lightweight carbon fiber design means these insoles will not weight your feet down when you wear them this makes them ideal for wearing inside sport and running shoes!
  • Orthotic support will help to correct the biomechanics of your feet helping to prevent common causes of injuries such as overpronation and supination when you walk.
  • Helps to ease plantar fasciitis and heel pain quickly and effectively!

  1. These are definitely the insoles to go with if you have foot pain. I have been wearing them for a few weeks now and my feet feel so good and haven’t had any problems with pains or aches at all since I started wearing them!

  2. I bought a pair of these to sort out my arch pain and after 2-3hours of wearing them my pain was gone… this was after buying countless other brand such as scholl and superfeet which just damaged and wrecked my feet.

  1. I got some of these, the massaging gel is quite good soothing your pain but just too squishy to offer any proper arch support. In my opinion the Footrevivier arch support insoles are far better if you have plantar fasciitis. This is because they support and correct what’s wrong with your feet meaning you wont keep on getting plantar fasciitis over and over again.

  1. Any of my friends on here got any tips for dealing with the excruciating pain of this? I have had it in my left foot for the last 4 months. My podiatrist gave me a sheet with exercises on it for me to do but they are impossible for me because it is things like pick up a towel with your toes – and I don’t have any toes. I went to my GP and her answer was “What do you expect me to do about it? Feet are a podiatry problem, not a doctor’s problem.” When I mildly suggested the swear word ‘physiotherapy’ she told me there was zero chance of that and I would just have to put up with the pain – maybe even for the rest of my life. I have never experienced pain like this – at times I can’t even put my foot on the ground and if I try to hop I fall over because my balance is so bad. Anybody had this and found something that worked?

    • Ouch, I had that for awhile, some years ago. I found the completely flat gel insoles helped me a wee bit, they can be cut to size and shape.

      I am a little Little concerned about recommending insoles per se because I have recently been suffering a bit with Mortons neuroma, (a little tumor on nerve in toe) hardly life threatening but very painful! It is reminding me of the PF you now have.
      Podiatrist recommended insoles with a metatarsal dome for the current problem. So I dutifully went and got some, put up with wearing them for two weeks ….. Ended up with inflammation across soles of BOTH feet, grrrr.

      I returned to the podiatrist who told me I should have only worn them initially for an hour or so a day and to discard them if they aggravated my soles further. And there was me thinking I was being a brave little soldier when in fact I was being just plain stoooopid ha ha.

      Maybe your podiatrist could give you some more help just on the phone? I hope it soon gets more comfortable for you.

    • OOhh ouch, I’ve had this many years ago(about 15yrs, memory hazy)… I had gel heel insoles with a patch that you could pull out in the middle bringing much relief to the heel, I also had steroid injection peppered into the bone it was uncomfortable to walk on, but it did get better, try wearing spongy type sole/shoes, I wore trainers…. go back to G.P for a referral im sure I went to orthopaedics sure podiatry could help…. best wishes and I hope you recover asap!

    • Second thoughts. Ibuprofen gel might soothe it a little. You can also try freezing water in a redundant plastic bottle and roll your foot on it which might help.
      Or alternate the ice pack with a hot water bottle and thereby confuse the pain sensation for a while.

    • I thought doctor’s dealt with the whole body?!?! Never realized feet didn’t count!

      When I had my last knee replacement I had great benefit from a “Circulation Booster” which sends electrical pulses to contract the muscles, it certainly helped reduce the swelling in my knee – the first one didn’t swell but I accidentally leant on the drain and they couldn’t put it back in, so I had a very puffy knee for a while. If you can’t do exercises, perhaps it could do the same thing? I really don’t know anything about your particular complaint at all, so be sure to ask your podiatrist before you buy one of these.

    • Thanks for all the helpful advice everybody. I see the podiatrist every 4 weeks (because my feet aren’t ‘normal’ I get a build up of hard skin which has to be regularly scraped off – like barnacles on the bottom of an ocean going liner lol) and she keeps asking me how my feet are but she just says that it can sometimes take years for the pain to go away. Its really annoying because I have to stand a lot at work and my balance isn’t great at the best of times. I have tried the thing with the towel but it just slips off because I don’t have the toes to stop it and I can’t do the rolling back and forward thing because my foot isn’t big enough to get the bottle under properly – they are about a child’s size 11 although the width of an adults foot which means I usually have to take a size 2 in a shoe to get the width – a real pain if trying to buy a ‘dressy’ shoe and one of the reasons I don’t wear dresses.

    • I have had this in both feet, at different times.

      Before getting up in the morning, or up from a chair, gently stretch the tendon in the back of your leg by pulling your toes back towards your leg or getting hubby to gently push them. The problem starts with the tendon from the knee to the heel & stretching that helps the foot problem. The gel insole does relieve the impact pain when walking or standing but doesn’t solve the problem.

      I have had the steroid injection in both heels – one worked & the other didn’t. However, the one that worked was bliss!

      Badger your GP – at the very least you should have anti-inflammatories & some suitable exercises for you from a physio.

    • My daughter also has the condition and the gel insoles listed above help her a lot. Your doctor doesn’t sound very helpful. Can the podiatrist suggest an alternative to the towel around the foot exercise? I do hope you get relief soon.
