What kind of sandals can I wear? I have Plantar Fasciitis (Heel pain)?

Hello I have Plantar Fasciitis (Heel pain caused by inflammation of connective tissue on the bottom part of my foot). My doctor has advised wearing insoles that support the arches of my feet as in my case the problem is caused by dropped arches and my left foot rolling inwards. My feet need support but insoles tend to slip out of sandals!

Are there any sandals on sale in the UK that will provide the necessary support and shaping without the need for an insole? Or does anyone have any other ideas? It's summer and my feet get really hot in shoes! Oh and preferably they should come in black or another dark colour.

I would say Birkenstock shoes and sandals. They are really comfortable and very nice. But they are kind of expensive.

My dad wore birkenstocks when his PF was bothering him and he still does today. They aren't really my style of shoe though.

For me it was better to use Crocs. I actually wear their Rx Relief shoes to work every day (they are designed to provide comfort for PF). I have them in brown, but they come in all colors (including black). I usually wear them without socks and the holes give my feet enough air flow. I wear them with jeans.

When I purchased them I also got crocs flip flops, mary janes, and some other type that are comfy, too (they were all on sale). I got silver flip flops, but I am sure they have them in black, too. My mary janes are my weekend shoes for the most part so I typically wear them with shorts.

Crocs are "squishy" so they feel nice to walk on.

Good luck! PF is such a pain!
