Help for High Arches

By July 29, 2008

Follow me on:

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.

I HAVE VERY BAD FEET. I CAN TRY ON TWENTY PAIR OF SHOES AND ONE MAY FIT ME BUT IT USUALLY GOES BACK TO THE STORE. I HAVE FOUND SPENCO INSOLES TO BE A GODSEND, HAVING 3/4, ATHLETIC, WORK ARCHES ,HEEL& OTHER…ARCH SUPPORTS AVAILABLE-OTC.THEY ARE GUARANTEED AND BETTER THAN THE $350.00 MEDICAL ARCH SUPPORTS CASTED FOR ME AT A PODIATRISTS OFFICE!

I have very high arches. I like suing the Spenco Insoles, they tend to give me the support all the “on the rack” shoes can’t give me.
