Recommended by a podiatrist for plantar fasciitis
Dr. Emily Splichal is an Arizona based functional podiatrist and human movement specialist who consulted with LISSOM on the design of our LISSOM Flytes. We asked Dr. Emily to explain how our shoes can feel good and benefit women with plantar fasciitis.
Finding the balance
Sometimes people will think that you need lots of support to protect the foot, however, others say that they find a lot of benefit by getting out of the support and feeling their feet.
THE CORRECT ANSWER IS actually in between. Finding that amount of support that works for your foot type, whilst still allowing your feet to move and engage and be strengthened.
Why LISSOM Flytes are great for plantar fasciitis
The type of support that you get from the LISSOM Flytes is primarily through the 0.8mm heel drop. The heel-toe drop is how much the shoe declines between the heel and the front of the foot, or the toe. That declination of heel-toe drop takes the pressure off the bottom of the foot, plantar fascia, and the calves which are often associated with plantar fasciitis symptoms as well.
Despite having this supportive heel-toe drop, LISSOM Flytes still have a freedom of movement to allow your foot muscles to engage and become strengthened to support the foot and ultimately address why you got plantar fasciitis in the first place.
