Flats are a great alternative shoe choice to heels, but their typical design can leave your feet unsupported and achy by the end of your work day. The majority of flats place the foot flat on the ground with no support or cushion and you are left with foot pain and potential problems with your feet down the road.
However, flats that provide amazing arch support can take you from your work day to your dinner plans comfortably! The typical flat often has no heel height and no arch support which can be painful for women with flat feet or plantar fasciitis. Though a flat that provides some height and a great insole can make sure that you are comfortable all day long and that you are protecting yourself from future foot issues.
When choosing your perfect pair of flats it’s important to ensure that the flats hug and secure your feet. This will help your feet from slipping around the shoes and creating the gapping at your arch that can happen overtime without the perfect pair of flats. It is also important that you choose flats that have an insole that supports your arch and a small heel height that will help you conquer your day with no foot pain.
Are you ready to find your perfect pair of flats? See below a list of flats that feature arch support.
Our Forever Flat was created by our Chief Science Officer who is a Podiatric Surgeon and Podiatrist, Dr. Roxann Clarke. She designed the flat with just the right amount of heel height to still be a flat but not have your foot straight on the ground. But the best part about this flat is the arch support, the lining is suede so it’s soft on the foot and the padding and arch support that is automatically in the flat will ensure that you conquer the day in confidence.
If you are not familiar with Birkenstocks they all have a classic Birkenstock footbed that they are known for. The footbed was designed to encourage proper foot wellbeing and health. Not only will your foot thank you but you can expect all day comfort. The footbed does have arch support, Birkenstock calls it the longitudinal arch support, which runs along the sides of the footbed, providing stability with each step. Plus they have the transverse arch support runs through the middle of the footbed, helping ensure proper alignment and a solid stance.
