Best Nursing Shoes for Flat Feet

Flat Feet can be a genetic condition or slowly develop over time from muscle weakening or secondary to a previous injury such as an ankle fracture or ankle arthritis. We know that having flat feet can increase your risk of injuries or conditions such as knee and ankle arthritis as there is more force applied to the medial aspect of each joint. Strengthening exercises alongside the correct footwear can be beneficial for reducing pain levels and the risk of injury. Hoka Shoes have become increasingly popular in the last 10 years, they are a favourite of ours, and we will discuss and recommend the best shoes for flat feet.

The best Hoka Shoes for Flat Feet have plush cushioning, medial posting and a structured midsole. We have provided our two most recommended ones below.
We recommend the Hoka Arahi 6 for Flat Feet if you require moderate support due to their J-Frame midsole support, early-stage meta-rocker and balanced cushioning.
The J-Frame midsole support helps to control excess pronation moments that are associated with flat feet while the early-stage meta-rocker facilitates a normal gait pattern.
The balanced cushioning provides comfort without allowing excess foot movement that is associated with flat feet.Buy Now
We recommend the Gaviota 4 Hoka Shoes for Flat Feet if you require high levels of support due to their J-Frame midsole, plush cushioning and availability of width sizing.
The J-Frame helps to control pronation moments, and the plush cushioning provides extra comfort, especially for long days on your feet or long runs.
Hoka has some of the most extensive range of shoe widths available, which is extremely helpful for flat feet as they can spread and become flatter, making it uncomfortable to wear narrow shoes.Buy Now
