Accessory Navicular (Os Naviculare)
Read More >
Accessory Navicular syndrome is a condition that affects a small proportion of the general population, but for those who have it, it can be painful to walk and stand. Risk factors for accessory navicular syndrome are a flat foot or poor foot control. Exercises and appropriate footwear are two of the most effective forms of treatment for Accessory Navicular Syndrome. In this article, we will share the best shoes for Accessory Navicular Syndrome based on our clinic experiences with patients.

The Best Shoes for Accessory Navicular Syndrome have a stable midsole, responsive cushioning and a low profile.
The responsive cushioning protects the navicular from excess impact while a stable midsole prevents excessive pronation moments while a low profile ensures and even force distribution across the foot.
We recommend the Hoka Clifton 8 for Accessory Navicular Syndrome due to the cushioned sole, meta-rocker and 5mm heel drop.
The responsive cushioned sole helps to cushion the accessory navicular. At the same time, the meta-rocker encourages a normal transition of the foot through the gait cycle to minimise the time on the midfoot.
The 5mm heel drop ensures an even force distribution across the foot.
We recommend the Saucony Guide 16 for accessory Navicular syndrome due to its lightweight cushioned sole, soft sock liner, and medial arch support.
The lightweight cushioning protects the medial arch from impact vibration when walking alongside medial arch support to help control pronation forces.
The sock liner reduces friction and provides comfort to any shaped foot.
We recommend the Soloman Xt-6 for trail running with Accessory Navicular Syndrome due to their EVA cushioning, energy cell midsole and Ortholite sock liner.
The EVA cushioning is the material we use to create custom insoles as it is light and durable, tolerating the impact of running without collapsing. At the same time, the energy cell midsole reduces the pressure of the foot’s medial arch.
The unique Ortholite sock liner provides additional cushioning to the foot’s arch.Buy Soloman XT-6
