Yes, there are certainly some running shoes that are better for individuals who have flat feet than others. The companies that manufacture footwear for runners have become smarter throughout the years with regard to engineering their products. Part of this means that they now offer models that can accommodate any arch style, including fallen arches.
It is important to know what to look for when you are in the market for running shoes. If you have flat feet, you should seek out models that offer superior support, stability, and motion control.
Finding shoes that provide motion control is good, but even better is having our experts prepare custom orthotics for you. We will measure your foot and analyze your gait to create medical inserts for your unique feet.
