What to Look for When Selecting the Best Shoes for Your Flat Feet

Foot and Ankle

When you first set out on your journey to select the perfect pair of shoes for your flat feet, there are three tests you can do while purchasing to make sure you’re getting the correct support you need.

If the shoe bends where the toes are, it’s supportive enough, but if it bends toward the middle, it is not going to have the support you need. Your middles need support, not this bendy sole. Try another pair.

How well are you able to twist and torque it? Pick a shoe that is difficult to move. These are the shoes that will give you the most support for your arches.

Is the heel stiff? Proper heel support often found in the best shoes for flat feet just puts the whole package together. You won’t want to roll an ankle right after you get your arch support would you?

It all comes down to the basic premise a stiffer shoe will be more supportive for your feet and will help prevent over pronation.

You may be saying, ‘why would I want a stiff shoe? Isn’t it going to be really uncomfortable?’ Shoes today are made with a lot of padding and comfortable material so that your feet won’t actually feel like they are a prisoner in a plastic box. It is a common misconception that extra support means lack of comfort and for a flat footer, it will actually make you even more comfortable once you get the arch support your feet crave.
