The best running shoes for top of the foot pain:

The podiatrist recommended best running shoes for top of the foot pain are a little bit more sleek and athletic than the walking shoes.

  • This may include a little less weight to the shoe.
  • We still want to see features like a deep heel cup combined with the orthotics around 10-16mm.
  • We want to see a slight heel to toe lift in the 10-12 mm range.
  • We want a stiffer back to the shoe.
  • We want a stiffer midsole with more cushion.

Overview:
Price Range: $250+! These are the best reviewed and hottest shoes on the market. Marathoners are setting records with these. The downside is they are VERY expensive and can only last on shoes. DO not wear these outside of good road conditions or they will break down FAST!
Price Range: $69+ This was a shoe that previous records were set in. This is a more durable and minimal overall running shoe. It is more of a lightweight minimal shoe. It is build for speed and not durability.
Price Range: $130+ This is about the maximum amount of cushion you can get in a running shoe. This is better reserved for bigger or more arthritic runners. Like the other shoes it is not durability focused!
Price Range: $130+ High level racing trail shoe. This is not specifically built for durability. It is more of a racing shoe for offroad conditions. Like all of these racing shoes they are not the most durable!
Price Range: $120+ These are meant only for race day! These can help tremendously with speed, but durability wise they will break down over time quicker than other types of shoes.
Price Range: $130+. The people who use these swear by them! A very unique light feel. Like the other lightweight ones, these are built for speed not durability!

Superfeet womens Berry Premium-w Insole, Berry, D 8.5 - 10 US
Price:
$14.90
$38.95
Price not available
Price not available
Overview:
These work best in shoes with laces and running shoes. Not good for dress shoes or women’s cute shoes.
Biggest and most corrective option. Only use for running shoes or work boots. Not cute shoes.
These are full length inserts, but softer. Great if you can’t tolerate the firmer ones. Best for very sore and sensitive feet.
Great Support & Better Fit
Pros:
Pretty much guaranteed to help you if it fits in your shoes and you give it 2 weeks to get used to. 5,000+ amazon reviews, great track record.
My personal favorite, but not for everyone. Amazing reviews over 3,500. But not for everyone. Only for bigger shoes that can fit them
They are softer and the initial break in time is AMAZING. But longer term benefits are less. >500 Almost 5 star amazon rating.
Sleek, supportive and have a better fit than the orthotics above.
Cons:
Do not wear these in cute or dress shoes!
Bigger and bulkier than all the other ones. You will be dissappointed if you have a cute women’s shoe or dress shoe. This is meant for running shoes and boots.
Great to start with, but don’t correct long term as much as the other ones.
A little bit more expensive.
Crucial Tips:
Ease in to these, 1-2hrs a day. They are like braces for your teeth, they suck at the beginning! But they will make your feet pain free as 1-2 weeks go by. Don’t give up on them after 1 or 2 days. Everyone feels off at the beginning!
This has the most correction, but hardest break in time! IF SENSITIVE, USE A SOFTER PAIR FIRST! But if you get these, you must break them in. Give it 1-2 hours a day, but then you will start to have excellent results. The bad reviews are all people who couldn’t fit it into their shoes and gave up too quickly. You have been WARNED!
If you are very sore, TRY THESE FIRST! These are easiest to break in with initially. If you are very sore and rigid, don’t use the heavy duty ones to start with.
These will have a harder time fitting in flats and pointed shoes.
