Foot Care Specialists in Auburn, AL Explain How Foot Types Differ

Many people don’t realize that the structure of the foot varies from person to person. There are multiple foot types, ranging from a moderate arch to flat-footed, to a high arch. Each foot type requires appropriate shoes for their structure, and every foot type has to be cared for appropriately to prevent related podiatry issues. When learning about your foot type, make sure to note the possible complications based on the structure of your foot. Our foot care specialists in Auburn, AL explain these differences below.

Low Arches

This is the foot type where the arch almost completely touches the ground while standing. Also known as flat feet or collapsed arches, this foot type can lead to many foot problems such as plantar fasciitis and heel pain due to lack of support. This foot type can benefit from insoles that provide extra arch support and well-fitting, supportive shoes.

Moderate Arch

A moderate arch is the ideal foot type. It is the most supportive, with a well-formed arch and an even balance between the ball of the foot and the heel. Although people with this foot type have fewer foot problems, it does not mean they are immune to developing them. Improper shoes and repetitive movement can always cause issues with any foot type, so it’s important to maintain good foot health with regular checkups and quality shoes.

High Arches

High arched feet have a high and rigid instep, with most of the weight bearing on the heel and forefoot. This foot type can lead to foot problems like hammertoes, calluses, or instability when walking, due to weight constantly being placed on the toes. Insoles are also helpful for this foot type, as they can provide cushioning between the forefoot and the heel. Wide, high-top shoes can also provide more stability for high arches.
