Have overpronation and flat feet how high should shoe heel be on shoes that have a platform? Why?

1" A 1" heel is usually the highest I recommend for patients in general, but especially those with overpronation and flat foot.
Heel height is not. As important as a proper arch support. A proper arch support or orthotic will lift you out of over pronation by supination the foot back towards a neutral position. .

Might need orthotics. There are a couple causes for arch pain. If the pain started soon after putting insoles in your shoes, that may be the cause. Often, I recommend breaking in insoles a few hours per day at first. This allows your foot to get used to the insoles. If this is more of a long term problem you may suffer from plantar fasciitis or a painful flat foot, and should see an orthopedist or podiatrist to discuss. Read more...
