Shoes for Flat Feet by Orthaheel
You may be in need of insoles for flat feet if the inside of your arch touches the floor when standing. This can happen from injury, simple wear and tear, or lack of arch development during childhood. Obesity also increases your risk of flat feet, or "fallen arches". But more often, a flat foot results from excess pronation, where the ankle rolls too far downward and inward with each step. This causes the foot's arch to collapse and lengthen, giving the appearance of flat feet.
Fallen arches can cause symptoms such as:
- Tired feet
- Foot pain, especially heel pain or arch pain
- Leg fatigue
- Body aches
Restoring proper arch shape
Specific exercises recommended by your podiatrist can help strengthen your feet and may result in less pain experienced in the lower limbs, but orthotics for flat feet may be more effective. By controlling over-pronation related to functional flat feet, orthotics sometimes restores the foot's arch to normal and relieve any pain you may have in the foot. Obesity or weight gain can also affect the pressure put on your foot, so your doctor may also recommend weight loss. Additionally, sometimes rest or medication is a great solution but if necessary, Orthaheel offers the best shoes for flat feet.

Orthaheel technology can help relieve the aches and pains by restoring the foot’s natural alignment, enabling the feet to function properly. When the arch is supported in such a way, the result is relief from the ground up – encouraging the ankles, legs, hips, etc. to function as they are intended. If you’re wondering whether or not Orthaheel footwear can help you, the answer is: wearing a supportive shoe is an important precaution to take in order to preserve the health of your foot, whether or not you currently suffer from fallen arches, heel pain, or other foot issues.
We recommend you only wear your new Orthaheel shoes or orthotic inserts for a few hours for the first few days to allow your feet to adjust to the new level of orthotic support. Within a couple of weeks, you should find your shoes completely comfortable and supportive.
