I have plantar fasciitis and I purchased the venture 4 that were fantastic. So I figured I would find the 5. I recalled why I purchased this shoe. Ithas a cushy heel cup, cushiony through, also has arch supports. All things I want at a shoe. I will state I can walk in these shoes can and still as I could . You can’t beat on this shoe. I can not believe I waited to buy sneakers especially.
