We all love a good pair of skechers right? But: Are skechers good for plantar fasciitis? Do they promote good circulation and fast healing for plantar fasciits? Do they offer good arch support? Good heel support? The answer is yes to all of those questions, but you have to make sure to pick the right ones. Not all Skechers are created equally. Some are heavy and have poor arch support, below are a few I’ve picked for various qualities I like to see in a good plantar fasciitis shoe. My favorite version of Skechers, the Urbantread, isn’t here because I found it didn’t live up to the job as well as I hoped in our Best Trainers for Plantar Fasciitis Review.

What makes a good pair of shoes for plantar fasciitis good?
The common characteristics when selecting shoes follows in order:
- Feel, comfort and sizing
- Look and fashion
But when looking to select shoes for plantar fasciitis, there are a great deal more things to consider, such as:
- Arch support
- Heel support
- Sole support
- Toe box shape and size
- Tight or loose fits
- Ankle support
- Insole compatability
This makes choosing the right plantar fasciitis shoe a great deal harder, if you’re set on Skechers, I don’t think I could fault you. Just beware of the above and you should find the right pair that meets your needs!
