New Balance: New Balance offers a variety of shoe widths. Sometimes people with flat feet need wider shoes. You shoe look at shoe inserts if you need added arch support. I suggest you see an orthopedic surgeon if you have painful flat feet.

Google: Most physicians and even podiatrists cannot keep up with the shoe industry. Shoes come and go. However you can Google this question and get a lot of responses. Having said that, your concern should be your flatfootedness. Get into a pair of custom orthotics and then worry about the shoes.
