If your foot print shows your full width of your foot, it is very likely you have flat feet.
A flat foot is when the bones of the feet collapse downward with a step of the foot. The naturally-occurring arches in the feet are not supporting the foot adequately.
This results in stressed foot muscles which can make your feet tire quickly from minimal amounts of walking. However, over time, flat feet can lead to other more serious problems that can result in a lot more discomfort and pain, such as heel spurs, Plantar Fasciitis, bunions, calluses, corns, and metatarsalgia.
There are several causes of flat feet:
• Obesity, which puts more compressive forces on the foot from the added weight
• Repetitive movements that pound the foot into the ground such as running, jumping, and sprinting. Flat feet are worsened by running on hard surfaces such as concrete.
• Birth. We are all born with flat feet. The arch develops over time.
• Bio-mechanical flaws of the foot.
• Improperly fitting shoes with no support
• Running barefoot
Flat Feet Insoles are designed with a low arch type in mind to help provide the right amount of support. If you have an insole with too high of an arch this can cause pain and discomfort and can lead to additional foot problems in the long run.
Flat Feet Insoles are available in full-length footbeds, which are designed to replace your existing shoe liner, or 3/4-length footbeds, which are designed to work along with your existing shoe insoles.
