Best Sneakers for Women with Foot Pain – The Top 3 Sneakers that Help Reduce or Fully Eliminate Your Pain!

Pain In The Top Of The Foot

Have you been experiencing foot pain in one or both of your feet? Did you know that women are more vulnerable to certain foot problems than men, mainly from wearing shoes that are too narrow and unsupportive for their feet?

While there might be several reasons that can be causing your foot pain, there is one solution that has proven to be the most effective one in treating and preventing foot pain: supportive sneakers in the correct size. There are certain sneakers that provide extra support to targeted areas of the feet in order to reduce the impact that the feet and legs take when they come in contact with the ground. The shoes also need to be capable of accommodating your particular foot shape –narrow, medium, wide, extra wide, high instep – in order to allow you to walk and run comfortably. Please note that it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe style provides, if the shoes are not the correct size, you won’t get any of the benefits that the shoes have to offer.

I have been fitting women’s shoes for the last 10 years which has helped me get familiar with which shoe brands and which shoe styles among those brands are better than others.  I have also helped women who were experiencing a certain foot condition such as flat feet, overpronation, bunions, rolled ankles, find the perfect pair of shoes to help prevent and treat those foot conditions. I know which shoe brands and shoe styles are better than others form having fitted them before. Wearing the correct type of sneakers is the least invasive alternative, since certain women were already considering having surgery due to their pain.

The sneakers that I am going to recommend in this article have proven to significantly reduce or fully eliminate general foot pain. In addition to being supportive, the sneakers are available in different widths such as narrow, medium, wide, and extra wide. The sneakers also provide extra depth, which is going to allow your feet to fit deeply inside the shoes and accommodate your high instep (in case you have one).

Stay away from sneakers that are too heavy and that don’t easily flex at the front — shoes that are too tight or too loose are also a contributing cause for foot pain.

The sneakers that I recommend are going to provide the following features:

✅ Supportive Sole: This feature is going to minimize the impact that your feet take when they come in contact with the ground. Some of the sneakers below provide an ENCAP midsole technology or infused gel that provides good support and maximum durability.

✅ Lightweight and Flexible: All of the sneakers below are lightweight and flexible which is going to prevent your feet and legs from easily getting tired.

✅ Extra padding: The sneakers provide extra padding around the tongue and heel of the shoe, which is going to keep your feet comfortable, especially when running long distances. This feature is also going to help prevent you from getting blisters.

✅ Rubber Outsole: The sole of the sneakers provides excellent traction which is going to prevent you from slipping and falling down.

✅ Breathable: All of these sneakers provide a breathable mesh that is going to allow your feet to breathe, and prevent the buildup and formation of bacteria inside the sneakers.

Please pay close attention to my description on how each sneaker fits. I describe whether the sneakers are capable of accommodating narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet and whether the sneakers fit short or long, which is going to help you determine what shoe size to order.

The 3 sneakers described below have proven to be the most effective ones when it comes to significantly reducing or fully eliminating foot pain.

Without further due, let’s take a look at a selection of the best sneakers for women with foot pain.

Not sure what shoe size to order? You can’t possibly order the correct shoe size if you don’t know what your exact foot size is to begin with. I recommend going to your local shoe store to have your feet properly measured. However, if you don’t have a good fitting shoe store in your area take a look at the following article that explains how to measure your foot size from home:

If after trying any of these 3 shoe for one month your foot pain hasn’t been significantly reduced or fully eliminated, I recommend fitting an orthotic inside the sneakers for extra support.

  1. Hi Juan, I want to find out if you can find shows for me that is suggested by my foot doctor: With Rigit Heel Counter, Supportive Midsole, Semi-Flexible Forefoot, Laces/Velcro, Extra Depth and width and Removable Liner.

    Please let me know. Thanks

    • Hi Angelka,

      Yes, I can send you a list of shoes that provide all of those features. However, I first need to know your foot size and whether you have wide or extra wide feet. I noticed your doctor recommended shoes with extra depth and width, but it will be helpful for me to know whether your feet are wide or extra wide.
