Flat feet is the term used to describe feet with a low or absent medial arch, along the inner border of the foot. Flat feet can be present from birth or can develop in adulthood. Most cases that develop as adults are related to muscle weakness, injury or poor footwear. The correct level of support from your shoes can significantly reduce foot pain caused by flat feet.

Best Adidas Shoes for Flat Feet

Adidas have a few stability shoes, including the Galaxar, specifically designed with new runners in mind. Based on our experience, the two shoes we recommend for flat feet are the Adidas Solarcontrol for moderate to high support and the Adidas Solarglide 4 ST for low to moderate support. They offer additional stability with a low heel-to-toe drop while still being relatively light and responsive trainers. 

Moderate to High Support for Flat Feet

We recommend the Adidas Solarcontrol shoes for flat feet who need moderate to high support.

These Adidas Solarcontrol are designed for extra stability and are a good option for both longer distances and shorter, faster runs. They are made to control the biomechanics of the foot from heel strike and propel you through to push off from the toe with reduced strain on the plantar fascia.

A bonus with this shoe is that it is partially made with recycled materials.

Low to Moderate Support for Flat Feet

We recommend the Adidas Solarglide 4 ST shoes for flat feet if you need low to moderate support.

The Adidas Solarglide 4 ST is designed for those who want a little more support for comfort or want to add extra miles to their runs. The Stability Frame guides the foot through the natural biomechanics of the stride, and the Boost sole technology helps to energise each stride.
