The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is a stretching of the plantar fascia, a ligament that runs from the ball of the foot through the arch and is connected to the heel. It is that attachment which becomes aggravated and typically causes pain after being on your feet for long lengths of time.
The best flip flops for plantar fasciitis are sandals that help you walk without cringing. The footbed of the shoe should be thick and rigid, with good arch support & thick heel cups, with some padding for your foot as you walk - especially since many flip flops are too flat for people with plantar fasciitis.
"Therafit sneakers have the perfect arch support for plantar fasciitis sufferers. I wear them and recommend them to my patients."
