Comfortable shoes that are not criminally ugly: plantar fasciitis

Any suggestions?

My heels hurt like buggery and have done for a few months. I'm following the chiropodist's recommendations but no change yet.

I've never been a high heels lover, but complete flats no good at all. And all my mid height heels seem far too hard. And I really don't want to wear Cornish pasties on my feet.

I want to walk on air but mostly just lurch and swear.

Sketchers is my best offer.

Russell & Bromley have a good selection of flats with a little flat heel (loafer style) but if you want a bit more cushioning and support a slip on leather shoe is not idea - which is why I suggest sketchers.

Comfortable, supportive flat shoes that are not hideous are rare.

Thanks - I'll have a look online.

Try Fly London Piat - or other types with the low wedge. It really helps. Also boots with at least an inch block heel (like riding boots) I have found helpful.

Vivo barefoot shows and toe alignment socks helped my plantar fasciitis.

Just had a look at the Fly London shoes & boots - they look really promising.

Had a look at the Vivo too - aren't they a bit flat?

Have you tried Hotter? A lot do look grannified in there but I bought some decent looking ballet pumps. Also check tkmaxx, I found high arch heels lay year which are dreamy

A bit like Marmite (love or hate the styles), but I have loved several pairs of Camper shoes and they have been the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. No doubt.

Ecco are good for arch support.

Ooh yes the Campers are nice (well some of them)
