Do you have plantar fasciitis and have been looking for a pair of slippers to wear at your house? Is it becoming frustrating because you don’t know where to find a slipper with good support?
To be on the same page, I will clarify what plantar fasciitis is. It’s a medical condition that is caused by the inflammation of the connective tissue of the foot known as the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia runs through the arch of the foot, connecting the heel and the toes. When it becomes inflamed, you start experiencing pain in your heels or your arches.
The best way to treat and cure plantar fasciitis is through wearing the appropriate footwear. Trust me, wearing the proper shoes can make the world of difference when it comes to healing your plantar fasciitis condition.
If you have plantar fasciitis and already use the right type of shoes for work or being outside, then there is no reason for you to let down you guard and use just any pair of slippers at home.
Most women would usually spend a considerable amount of time on their feet walking around the house in the morning and before going to bed. There is a great chance that you are feeling tired and maybe experiencing foot pain. So, you want to avoid sliding into flimsy, non-supportive slippers or going barefoot.
Unfortunately, there is only a small selection of house slippers that will provide cushion and support to your feet while you are at home. The good news is that I will show you which styles will provide more support to your feet.
I have been working for a specialized shoe store fitting women’s shoes for the last 10 years. Moreover, I have been helping women find the correct type of shoes and orthotics to reduce or fully eliminate the foot and leg pain that they were having. We specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well as slippers. Over the years I became familiar with the best house slippers for plantar fasciitis.
All of the slippers that I will describe below come with a podiatrist-designed footbed that provides good support and promotes stability from the ground up.
I can tell you that women who suffer from plantar fasciitis could experience great discomfort or cause their feet minor to severe problems by walking and standing on uncomfortable shoes/slippers while working or doing the regular chores at home.
Many women wear highly supportive shoes to their work every day, so there is no reason to stop supporting your feet at home while you are still being active.
I am going to show you a selection of the best house slippers for plantar fasciitis shortly, but first I want to make sure you know your exact foot size.
Moreover, if you prefer online shopping and are in fact going to be buying your slippers online, you need to be absolutely sure that you know your correct foot size. I wrote an article that describes the simplest yet most effective way to figure out your foot size from home. Please click on the link below:

The Best House Slippers for Plantar Fasciitis ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Below you can find a selection of the best house slippers for plantar fasciitis:
Keep in consideration that slippers can also run short, long, narrow, or wide, and depending on how they run you will need to adjust the size that you get for yourself.
In order to prevent your toes from rubbing against the front or side part of the slippers, I highly recommend that you order these slippers a half a size larger than the size that your feet measure. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.6 centimeters of space between your longest toe and the end of the slippers.
Please keep in mind that all of these shoe styles fit “true to size”, which means that you need a half a size longer of the size that you measure in the standard foot measuring scale (Brannock device) in order to prevent your toes from rubbing against the side or the front of the slippers.
