Plantar Fasciitis causes pain at the bottom and sides of the heel and is most painful when standing for long periods of time. Pain is often also experienced upon standing up after sitting down for a period of time, which is caused when the plantar fascia is stretched after it has tightened up during a rest period.
Appropriate footwear with proper support, cushioning and balance can relieve pain and discomfort. Birkenstock design their shoes with a cork foot bed that provides dramatic improvement and significant relief from painful symptoms caused by fallen arches and plantar fasciitis, with the same benefits as orthoses or inserts. Orthoses, also known as orthotics, are inserts that mechanically correct fallen arches and support the heel to reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis.
In the same proud tradition of German craftsmanship that goes into the design and manufacture of Birkenstock sandals, Birkenstock insoles for plantar fasciitis features a traditional cork heel cup that cushions impact and promotes proper balance and alignment.

However, some people just can’t bring themselves to wear them in public, or employee work codes prevent them from wearing Birkenstock sandals to work, even if they are the only thing they can wear in order to walk without pain. Birkenstock Insoles for plantar fasciitis can replace the insoles of any of your shoes and provide the same level of comfort as wearing the sandals, including running shoes and other sports shoes.

The flexible and shock absorbing sole is made of natural cork material and EVA.
The two part arch support system has specifically been designed for use with sports shoes and features memory foam padding for a cushioning effect and customized comfort and natural cork for the heel cup.
