You have a NORMAL FOOT if… 

  • Your footprint has a flare but shows the forefoot and heel connected by a wide band.
  • Your foot lands on the outside of the heel, then rolls inward (pronates) to absorb shock. Runners and walkers with a normal foot usually have a semi-flexible arch that requires shoes  with varied degrees of support.

Best Shoes for you. Stability shoes with moderate control features such as a two density midsole.

You have a HIGH-ARCHED FOOT if…

  • Your footprint shows a very narrow band connecting the forefoot and heel.
  • Your foot usually doesn’t pronate enough, so it’s not an effective shock absorber.

Best Shoes for you. Cushioned shoes with plenty of flexibility to encourage foot motion. Stay away from motion control or stability shoes which reduce foot mobility.

You have a FLAT FOOT if…

  • You have a low arch and leave a nearly complete imprint. That is, the imprint looks like the whole sole of the foot.
  • This imprint usually indicates an overpronated foot that strikes on the outside of the heel and rolls inward (pronates) excessively. Over time, this can cause many different kinds of overuse injuries.

Best Shoes for you. Motion control shoes, or stability shoes with firm midsoles and control features that reduce the rate of pronation. Stay away from highly cushioned curved-lasted shoes that lack stability and control.

You take anywhere from 8,000 to 13,000 steps per day. And every step puts more than 3 to 5 times your bodyweight on your foot!

If your feet don’t have correct support, all that unstable force leads to foot health issues you simply don’t have time for. That’s why our customers love our Custom Footbeds.

We study this stuff (our Fit Specialists spend about 300 hours learning about feet!) and love every second of it. Why? The facts show just how effective custom footbeds are for stabilizing your feet.

  1. The structured heel cup encapsulates and positions the soft tissue under the heel, maximizing natural shock absorption.
  2. Rearfoot support centers on the back of your arch and the front of your heel to stabilize the rearfoot.
  3. A firm foam layer and a stabilizer cap combine to create the supportive shape that our custom footbeds are famous for.
