"Comfy and supportive for high arches"

These are perfect! They are extremely comfortable, support my high arches, and the adjustable straps ensure a snug fit that supports my ankle and foot well. Highly recommend if you're looking for something comfortable/supportive and cute for the summer!

"Great Comfort for High Arch Foot"

Just received these comfortable, great looking sandals that beautifully support my very high arch foot.

-S. Koziski

"Excellent arch support!"

I'm on my 3rd pair of these shoes and they wear like iron. I bought a pair of the brown milled nubuck first and they lasted a year. It takes a while for the leather to soften up but it's well worth the wait. The next pair I purchased was navy but sadly the one shoe faded but it's not a deal breaker. I will continue to buy these shoes especially for the arch support as I have very high arches and a high instep. I have back pain and when I wear these it doesn't bother me a bit. I highly recommend. I'm 64 years old and need all the help I can get. These definitely do the job! PLEASE don't ever discontinue without emailing me first so I can stock up. Thanks for the awesome footwear you provide.

What Causes High Arches?

If the entire sole of your foot doesn’t press against the ground when you take a step, you probably have high arches. You can test this by wetting your feet and stepping on a piece of paper and looking at the footprint you make. While high arches are often genetic, they can also be caused by other medical conditions.  

 

Next Steps 

People with high arches are more prone to foot, ankle, and knee injuries, so in order to stay healthy it’s important to take steps to stay health. We recommend the following to help prevent injury:  

Wear Proper Shoes

Wear shoes that are designed for high arches. If you tend to overpronate (if your foot and ankle rolls in when you take a step), stability shoes will be your best friend. On the other hand, if you excessively supinate (if your foot rolls too much on the outside when you take a step), look for motion control shoes. If you’re not sure if you overpronate or supinate, try to look at the bottom of your sneakers to see where they wear out faster. 

Massage Your Arch

You can do this with your hands, but you can also use a tennis ball under your foot. It’s best to try massaging you feet in the morning right after you wake up.  

Don't Forget To Stretch

It’s especially important to incorporate stretches that stretch your feet, calves, and Achilles tendon. 

Don't Forget To Stretch

Incorporate exercises to strengthen the muscles in your feet. You can try to pick up a towel with your toes or step on a paper towel and try to scrunch it up just by using your arch. Most people don’t realize that there are actually tiny muscles in arch, and this is a great way to strengthen them.  

Try An Insert For High Arches

Try an insert for high arches. Sometimes you may be able to wear your regular shoes but simply swap out a factory insert for an insert for high arches.
