Plantar Support | Arch Support

Plantar support starts with the arch. Some people prefer full or 3/4 plantar fasciitis inserts that support the arch. However, a lot of people simply can’t stand the feeling of inserts and insoles. For them, the simple arch support is a lot more comfortable alternative.

My wife tried a plantar support but switched to the full inserts. Hopefully this will give you enough information to decide which is right for you. You could just buy one of each and compare them for yourself. That’s what my wife did before she made a commitment to one or the other.

Also something for the men to consider: The best shoes, hands down, for plantar fasciitis are cork-bed shoes. We found plenty of them in women’s shoes but very few in men’s shoes. Arch supports or shoe inserts may be your best bet.
