Ahhh, two evil words we (well, most of us) hate to hear—plantar fasciitis—that pesky, yet unfortunately common foot condition characterized by inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament; one that provides a persistent source of discomfort for many active individuals across the globe. Walking or standing for prolonged periods often exacerbates the pain associated with this condition. As does skateboarding, snowboarding, exercise, ultra-running, marathon training…the list goes on. However, finding relief is absolutely possible, and lucky for you—especially if you’re reading this—you’re already one step closer to relief, as one simple, effective solution comes in the form of Remind Insoles.
Understanding Plantar Fasciitis - We’ve spoken about plantar fasciitis before, but in our humble opinion, you really can’t talk about it enough. Whether you need a refresher or this is your first time researching the subject, plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia ligament—a thick band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes—becomes strained or injured. This can lead to stabbing pain (if you know, you know), particularly during the first steps in the morning or after long periods of rest. Simply put—it’s the worst.
The Importance of Supportive Insoles - Supportive insoles (like our Cush, Medic, Destin and Remedy) are a crucial component of managing plantar fasciitis. They provide cushioning, reduce impact, and offer proper arch support, which ultimately alleviates stress on the plantar fascia ligament. Our insoles, specifically designed to address foot pain and discomfort, have gained popularity for their effectiveness in combating plantar fasciitis and providing the comfort and support you need to keep doing the things you love to do, pain free.
Why Remind Insoles are Absolute Game-Changers
1. Customizable Support: One of the standout features of Remind Insoles is our customizable nature. Every pair of our insoles are designed to mold to the unique shape of each foot over time, providing personalized support, which is something you really don’t always get—if ever. The heat-moldable technology in our Remedy, for example, allows users to achieve a customized fit, ensuring maximum comfort and targeted support where it's needed most.
2. Shock Absorption: Remind Insoles incorporate advanced shock-absorbing materials that help reduce the impact on the feet. This is particularly beneficial for individuals with plantar fasciitis, as it minimizes strain on the ligament during walking or other weight-bearing activities. Our Destin and Cush are solid picks for anyone seeking some additional shock absorption, as the built-in shock-absorbing properties contribute to an overall reduction in foot discomfort.
3. Arch Support: Proper arch support is absolutely crucial for individuals with plantar fasciitis, as it helps distribute pressure evenly across the foot. Remind Insoles feature varying levels of arch support to cater to different foot types and preferences. The strategic arch support aids in stabilizing the foot, promoting a more natural gait, and reducing strain on the plantar fascia. High arches? The Medic is calling! Flatter feet? The Destin has arrived. (Not sure what your arch type is? Take our Insole Finder Quiz and find your perfect match!)
