In brief: Flat feet

First you need to determine if you have flat feet ( feet with no arch) or over pronation.
If your feet over pronation can cause outside knee pain due to the malalignment of the legs and feet.

In brief: Yes, in some people

In a person with flattened feet arches, his kneecaps have more movement with each step he takes because the inside of his feet pronate (move towards the ground).
The repetitive extra movement of the kneecaps can lead to "overuse" pains in the knee.
