One of my co-workers asked me about what kind of shoes to buy that would give her the right support for high arches. First, I told her there was no substitute for finding the best running shoe store
in her area and getting fitted by an expert. But then the bad news - athletic shoes simply don't have arch support. To get the right support for a high arch, you will need to buy an arch support insole to replace the insole in the shoe. My walking buddy Will writes about his search for the right insoles for high arches
. If you want expert advice in finding the right insole, look for a pedorthist shop such as the chain Foot Solutions. These experts can recommend or modify commercial shoe inserts without going the full route of making a custom orthotic.
