Can I Wear Barefoot Shoes If I Have Plantar Fasciosis?

Plantar fasciosis (sometimes erroneously called plantar fasciitis) can be debilitating and difficult to treat, but proper footwear is a critical piece of the solution. Modern footwear with tight toe boxes and toe spring strain the plantar fascia and reduce blood flow – switching to minimalist shoes can help with that problem. But you might need additional foot training and professional help in conjunction with new footwear to fully recover.
