I had plantar fasciitis for 9 months. It was so painful, I hated to get up from the chair. In my work, I am on my feet grading lumber on concrete for 10-12 hours a day. I didn’t believe a sock could help me as much as it did. I started wearing SmoothToe socks in August and my plantar fasciitis was cleared up in 3-4 weeks, as well as my shin splint pain. The socks give me more leg and foot energy throughout the day. I would recommend SmoothToe Energizing Socks to anyone experience foot or leg pain.
