Shopping for flats can sometimes be difficult when you have flat feet. Since you have no arches under your feet, you always have to be on the lookout for flats with arch supportotherwise, you tend to suffer from unwanted ankle, knee, hip, and even back pain. "When those arches are lowered or nonexistent, it changes the way our legs carry the weight. This puts extra stress on bones, ligaments, and muscles," explains the Healthline


Additionally, it's also best to avoid pointed shoes. As much as possible, "the front of the shoe should be high enough not to squash the toes," according to the Medical News Today. Look for "shoes that are wide at the toes allow them to spread out. "This reduces pressure on the front half of the foot, which can help prevent pain and bunions."

Not everyone with flat feet experiences pain, but if you're someone who suffers from daily foot aches, you might want to check out these flats with sturdy arch support:
