There are numerous reasons why so many people choose the worst possible footwear. This not only puts their feet at risk, but can also affect the joints in the ankles, knees, hips and even the vertebral column.
AWPs give your body the best possible protection by providing the key benefits of postural support, effective shock absorption to the heel and excellent cushioning across the sole. The textured foot bed also stimulates circulation. Perfect for when you are working, relaxing or recovering from sport or injury.
Emily O’ Regan, an avid runner from Tipperary in Ireland said, “I love these shoes to bits, I suffer badly with plantar fasciitis, and since wearing these shoes I have seen huge improvement, so much so that I didn't use them last week as I thought I was cured and am suffering again. This week, these are lifesavers for my feet! I would highly recommend them to runners and anyone standing for long periods they are literally like cushions on my feet, so comfy.”
Emily went on to say “I have been running 3 years, I am not a speedy runner it's more for enjoyment and fitness. I began with just running the roads and joined the local meet and train where I began doing 5ks then moved up to 10ks I was doing cross-fit as well but got injured so I took to the roads full time and upped the mileage. I managed to do a half marathon and loved it so much that I did 3 in 3 months with ill-fitting shoes so this brought on plantar fasciitis, so I had to have physio and new shoes fitted with heel inserts 2014 was a huge year tons of races, and tons of bling but more heel pain which in turn turned out to be a stress fracture and your shoes happened to cross my path on Facebook I won your competition not long after my X-ray and these have so helped my recovery after 6 weeks I was given the all clear and I’m back doing 10k races - Massive thank you!”
Plantar Fasciitis can occur if you are on your feet for a lot of the time, or if you do lots of walking, running, standing, when you are not used to it. It is a common complaint with 1 in 10 people suffering from it at some point in their lives.
Usually, the pain will ease in time. 'Fascia' tissue, like 'ligament' tissue, heals quite slowly. It may take several months or more to go. To ease the pain and reduce the risk of recurrence; footwear with cushioned heels and a good arch support is recommended. The 'AWP' recovery shoes have a shock-absorbing heel and arch support built in – making them an excellent solution without the need for inserts.
In addition to the treatment and relief of plantar fasciitis, our customers advise us that the AWP shoes are also effective in reducing the symptoms of variety of other common aches and pains.
