Best Shoes for Baristas with Plantar Fasciitis

Being a barista requires someone to be on their feet for eight hours plus a day. This can lead to the development of many foot maladies, the primary of which is Plantar Fasciitis.  What happens is when you are a barista and on your feet for eight hours your plantar fascia is subject to multiple micro trauman which can lead to the development of Plantar Fasciitis.

Now I highly encourage you as a Barista to see a Podiatrist or get some insoles to help treat your Plantar Fasciitis.  However, not all Barista shoes are created equal.  Finding a quality shoe when you have plantar fasciitis can help you a great deal in treating your Plantar Fasciitis.  What do you look for as a Barista with Plantar Fasciitis in a shoe:

1. A shoe with padding- The more padding and shock absorbtion the less trauma to the Plantar Fascia and will help stem the development of Plantar Fasciitis.

2. Arch Support- One of the keys for helping in the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis is arch support. The more support you give your arch the less stress on the Plantar Fascia.

Here are a couple of shoes I recommend for Baristas with Plantar Fasciitis:

Skechers for Work Compulsion Indulgent 76510–  Here is a good example of a slip resistant shoe with a supportive insole. Now this shoe may not have the greatest padding, but it does have solid arch support.

SRM 6000 Max Rialto Black Slip Resistant Sneaker-One feature that I like about this shoe is removable cushionable insole, which is trait that you might want to look for.  You can try this sneaker’s insoles and if this does not provide the cushioning you are looking for then you can try one of the many insoles on the market to see if they will provide the cushioning you need.

Safe Step Slip Resistant Oxfords–  Here is shoe that specializes in padding and comfort. This shoe will provide a great deal of cushioning that you will need

Townforst for Men Slip and Oil Resistant Eamon Shoes–  These shoes provide a great deal of cushioning and padding  and specialize in providing shock absorption.
