Plantar fasciitis can be very painful, and searching for the right insoles can be overwhelming! So, we have compiled a list of the 7 best over the counter insoles for Plantar fasciitis recommended by top Podiatrists nationwide. Starting at number 7 we have the Doctor Scholl's active series. It helps to absorb shock, feels comfortable for most activities and it is fairly inexpensive compared to other insoles. They may fit tight in some shoes but can easily fit into most walking shoes that have a removable liner. These insoles can be found at most large chain pharmacies nationwide.
At number 6 we have the ProFoot Plantar Fasciitis Insole. It is a 3/4 length insoles that adds cushioning and some support. They are very affordable and can often be purchased in packages of multiple pairs so you can have one for all of your favorite shoes. Number 5 is the Nazaroo. These insoles provide support and cushioning but, like most full length orthotics, they require shoes that have a removable liner. The cushioning is very comfortable, but it does compress and wear out over time. The nice fabric upper reduces moisture and odor. For number 4 we have the Spenco Polysorb cross trainer athletic insole.
This brand has been around for many years and you can find them in stores across the country.

It is made of a hard, rigid material that provides sturdy support for those that have collapsing arches or over pronate.
They have a cushioned spongy feel with extra softness in the heel which gives wearers instant comfort, however some customers feel that they do not have enough arch support.
These insoles work for walking but are not recommended for running or high impact activities as the hard material under the heel causes it to lack impact absorption for those that heel strike while running. At number 2 we have the Powerstep ProTech Full Length orthotics. These insoles have great combination of support and cushioning with their double layer, shock absorbing material. They also have extra cushion under the heel. These work for both walking and running shoes with customers reporting that these insoles reduce foot pain and are very comfortable.
The number 1 insole is a newer brand called Soul Insole. Their high tech memory gel material works well for supporting the feet while walking and running. These insoles stop over pronation for flat feet and providing ample support even for high arches. The design drops off before the heel and forefoot to somewhat suspend the bones and offload pressure. Their small size allows them to provide plantar fascia relief in sandals and fashionable shoes as well.
Best of luck in finding your key to relief and healing! In addition to insoles, there are a few other things that can help provide relief for plantar fasciitis. Some people have reported success with soaking the feet in warm epsom salt baths, eating Tumeric, magnesium, calcium, vitamin c and collagen, exercising the feet to build muscle strength, rolling the feet on a golf ball or frozen water bottle and doing gentle foot stretches and movements.
