You work all day on your feet and the pain in your feet is horrible. Plantar Fasciitis or Heel Spur syndrome is a common condition that effects many workers who stand on their feet for extended periods of time. Finding a good pair of work boots can solve a great deal of the problems associated with plantar fasciitis. What are you looking for in work boots for heel spur or plantar fasciitis? You want a work boot with good padding and shock absorption in the heel. Additionally, you want a deep heel cup that can help control excessive movement in the heel. You do not want a high arch in the area, you want an arch that will contour to your foot. If your arch is too high it will contribute to the soreness in the area.
