|Hatfield Sit and Shoulder Strap|
Here's a picture from their website showing how the strap is used:

The handles help give you more leverage on your foot. It's really a unique feeling that you cannot duplicate on any other type of exercise or product I've seen out there in the market. The unit comes with instructions but I found that the video's on their website were also very useful.

I was amazed by the amount of leverage the shoulder strap makes for the stretch of the foot. I've never been able to get my foot to stretch out like this through a more traditional stretch. As I said, I don't suffer from plantar fasciitis, but I certainly can feel how good this strap makes my feet feel and can tell how much the foot is getting a good workout. I certainly thing the Hatfield strap would be a worthwhile investment, especially for anyone with foot issues.
There is another piece called the calf strap(shown on the middle picture above) in order to stretch your calf, however, I did not receive this for review so I cannot comment on that stretch.
You can get the Sit Strap and Should strap together like what I reviewed for $42 total on their website. Not a bad price at all for this quality product and I imagine, if you are like me, anything that keeps you running and helps you from being injured is worth it. You can add the calf strap for a total of $90 for all three.

I think you will find you won't be disappointed with this great tool especially for runners with plantar fasciitis who are finding the traditional stretch is not working as well for them.
Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
