I wear Fit Flops, Clarks, Born and Romika sandals which all help with PF. Around the house I never go barefoot, I wear Haflinger house slippers. Haflinger slippers have an arch support and also padded heels.

They are a bit odd looking, but my feet appreciate them far more than anything "fashionable." Also were a huge help in recovering from knee surgery.

In fact, when I retired from the Pentagon, a good half the civilians there swore by MBT shoes. Those shoes were everywhere.
My PF and knee problem did not return wearing these.

You could also look into Spenco. https://www.spenco.com/category.aspx?catid=65

I don't have any of their sandals, but I do have a pair of the flip flops; they have great support and deep heel cup. I have a pair that I wear as "house shoes" and a pair that go outside of the house. The bad thing is that they only come in full sizes the last time I checked.

I also have a pair of Vionic (when they were still Orthoheel), they have been great, and they're cute.

I am another who wears Clarks, but it seems to me that the quality has taken a big dip. I haven't been that happy with any Clarks I've picked up in the last couple of years.

I have a wide toe box so I'm not able to wear a lot of shoes that you lucky mediums get to wear. In Dansko and some other European shoes, I have to size up to a 39 (even though I'm really an 8W). Got these Dansko's today. Dansko 'Sophie' Sandal | Nordstrom

I really like Vionics and my Teva sandals in the summer.

Yes! I also like Dansco's even though some of them are really heavy. They fit well and seem very supportive. I have a couple of pairs of them.

After my Achilles tendon surgery, NO MORE CHEAP SHOES FOR ME. No way.

I had horrible PF for years. I had a custom orthotic made which I wore for years, and I once had shots in my feet. Nothing really cured me until I happened to find Birkenstock 3/4 arch support inserts. At first I tried to wear them in any shoe that would accommodate them , but later I simply wore them in my athletic shoes as I walked treadmill. Those inserts ultimately relieved my pain. I still wear them in my shoes when I go to the gym. I swear by them.

I cannot wear regular Birkenstock shoes, although I wish I could. But I feel like they would be quite comfy if I could.

Most comfort shoes do not have enough arch support for me. I often add extra into my shoes. There are many supports out there, and I have bought quite a few through the years.

I can't wear Born shoes because they don't come in size 10 1/2. If I can't get a 101/2, then I'm sunk. Most often I can get a shoe to fit if it uses Euro sizing.

I wear Keen, Wolky, Chaco, Altria, Pikolinos, and occasionally Merrill and Dansko. I pad these to fit. The most comfortable pair of shoes I've owned recently are a pair of Keen Presidios that I added extra support to. Loved the wide toe box. Love the shoe.

I shop mostly from Zappos. Zappos has been a life saver for me. If you have a local comfort shoe store, start there. But after you learn to fit yourself, order from Zappos. Doing so will greatly expand the universes of shoes available to you.

Do any stores sell Teva in the USA (meaning not online)?

You can cure plantar faciitis with massage therapy and fasting. If it doesn't work, please take a look at perineural injection therapy and prolotherapy. It will cure it for good.

I wear Aravon and Naot almost exclusively. Naot has some gorgeous shoes. I also own a few pairs of Vionics but they run really wide so I can only wear the flip flop kind.
