Robyn, I too prefer barefoot especially since I live on a boat but the pain just isn't worth it. I always wear shoes of some sort.

Thank you all for your comments. The runners world link was useful. I am doing some exercises and stretches but I was unaware that running is still an option in the right circumstances. I will try the clogs too as barefoot is one thing I am struggling with. My preference is too be barefoot.

My PF began while I was not running due to vertigo. I think my walking shoes wore out too quickly putting stress on my weaker foot. I am stubborn and did not heed the cues that something was going wrong.



Robyn, making wiser choices.

Bi have been thinking about PF. Weird, I know, but....
I have found one particular brand of shoes to be the most comfortable. They are not pretty and look funny under some circumstances. Since my PF I have not worn any other shoe as comfortable. The brand is "Oofos". They make a shoe, a clog, a flip flop and a sandal slide for men and women. I have clogs, flips and the slides. The clogs are purple or black, slides are black or white but the flips come in many colors. They seem to be the same price no matter you buy them, a store, Oofos on line, or even Amazon. Just sharing

Sorry to hear about your plantar problems. I have a standing job and have a mild case that is manageable, but I can't imagine having to work and work out with an issue like that. hope you're feeling better soon.

Sorry to hear about your planter facitis. I am sure you have done research on it. I did come across this article that I found interesting. Thought I would share it.

Doing some of the recommended exercises might speed up recovery time.

I have been on the sidelines since October, and it looks like it will be more time off. I am struggling with Planter faciitis so no rushing back. I miss running so much.
