Does anyone have any shoe recommendations for those with plantar fasciitis? I'm extremely interested in buying this bike but want to make sure that it doesn't exacerbate my condition and that I choose the right shoe. Any suggestions/feedback is greatly appreciated.

I would ask your podiatrist if you have one. Here is an article I found https://www.footankleinstitute.com/blog/cyclists-plantar-fasciitis-heel-pain/

I'm not a Dr. but here are a few specific suggestions:
-Don't just order the shoes that come with the bike. Find a local bike shop where they know what they're doing and get shoes that fit you perfectly. I would get mountain bike shoes.
-You may want to also try some inserts. I use Specialized Footbeds which are fitted for my feet. They seem to make the shoes more comfortable.
-When you get the bike, pay a lot of attention to making sure you set up the bike correctly e.g. seat height and position, handlebar height, etc.
-If you find doing something on the bike bothers your feet like standing and pedaling fast, modify your workouts.

Good luck!
