What is the best aerobic shoe for flat feet?

Stability shoe: Generally, I advise patients with flat feet to wear shoes with a rigid mid-sole (doesn't bend in the middle). You can always add an arch support or custom foot orthotic if necessary. Make sure the shoe is correctly sized in length and width.

What is the recommended type of footwear for someone with flat feet? Do I need to switch the same orthotics from shoe to shoe or can wear diff brand?

Orthotics: Switching the orthotics - whether they are custom or prefabricated - from shoe to shoe ensures they are there working for you. Different 'brands' do different things. See your podiatrist for the best advice with this. Good luck.

What is a good insertable shoe insole for flat feet?

Variety: There are many good otc insoles. A few of my favorites are: powersteps, superfeet, spenco orthotics and birkenstock. There are many others. You need to try them on as each will feel a little different. Too much support may not feel comfortable if your foot is very flat. Dr l.

What are the best shoe to buy for flat feet to exercise?

What are the best shoe to buy for flat feet to exercise?

Removable insoles: Buy a shoe that is really comfortable for you that has removable insoles, since most of the insoles in shoes are junk. Replace them with (my opinion) spenco polysorb insoles - walker/runner, cross trainer, or total support. Http://www. Spenco. Com/products/footcare.

Do custom in-shoe orthotics work well for acquired flat feet (valgus)?

They can be...: See a podiatrist and your visit should include a foot examination, possibly xrays and gait (walking) evaluation. Orthotics are prescription devices to help accommodate and help the foot function. As a means to treat conservatively (avoid surgery), many times, orthotics are used to hold the foot in good anatomic position and avoid abnormal mechanics which can lead to further problems.

1-must wear straight shoe lasts for overpronation & flat feet? 2-can sneakers have mesh and leather tops?

1-must wear straight shoe lasts for overpronation & flat feet? 2-can sneakers have mesh and leather tops?

??: Not so much a straight last as much as a last of some kind / cheaper shoes may look ok but if you can bend the shoe easily at the heel-forefoot junction then this is not a good shoe for you a good shoe with a last coupled with a good otc or custom made orthotic is the ticket as long as the construction is of reasonable quality what the upper is made from is not too much of an issue.

Are shoes of asics good for flat feet coz this international brand is only available in india & skechers too are available?

It depends on how...: ....they feel when U put them on. They should B comfortable right away. Get the proper size in the store @ walk around on them. They should feel good. If 2 tight or 2 short, don't buy them. They don't break in like some leather does. If not comfy U may also need arch supports if Ur flat feet R quite bad. Don't pay good money on uncomfortable footwear.

Failed to mention in an earlier question that I have flat feet. About to do some serious walking at disney. Are new balance shoes a good idea?

Failed to mention in an earlier question that I have flat feet. About to do some serious walking at disney. Are new balance shoes a good idea?

Can be: I personally love new balance. However, what I love most about them is the many types of shoes they make for many types of feet, as well as insoles. Plus living near the outlet is nice. The most important thing is finding a pair of shoes of any brand and/or orthotics that work for you. Footwear experts, especially at stores that cater to runners...Or doctors specializing in foot/ankle can help.

I have flat feet and hypermobility in them, got custom insoles which help when I have shoes on, but at home no shoes worn what can I do to stop pain?

I have flat feet and hypermobility in them, got custom insoles which help when I have shoes on, but at home no shoes worn what can I do to stop pain?

Home shoes: Shop for easy slip on loafers but they must have excellent arch supports in them. Make it a rule to never wear them outside and you'll have clean shoes for inside use only. Another patient of mine uses featherweight running shoes with her custom insoles. The only problem in getting used to wearing shoes inside.

Which shoe type is perfect for flat feet or bunions?

Which shoe type is perfect for flat feet or bunions?

Shoe guide: Flat feet and bunions require wider shoes to accommodate the deformity. A rigid, stable shoe is best. No more than 2 inch heels because it puts too much pressure on bunions. More importantly, the shoes have to support the arch whether with built in inserts or store bought inserts. Sandals need to have built in arch supports as well.
