Brooks Shoes For Flat Feet

Minute Read

by James McCormack

 A low or absent medial arch is described as a flat foot. This can be a foot type present from birth, or it can develop later in life due to weakened muscles, injury or poor footwear. Flat feet can be painful when walking, running or with prolonged periods of standing. Wearing the correct supportive footwear can reduce the pain from flat feet significantly.

Best Brooks Shoes for Flat Feet

Brooks has a wide selection of stability shoes that can help with pain relief from flat feet; they mark these with GTS, which stands for “Go To Support”. In our experience, we have found that the best Brooks shoes for people with flat feet are the Brooks Glycerin GTS 20, offering low to moderate support, and the Brooks Addiction GTS 15, which is best for those who need moderate to high support. Read on for our review of each of these shoes. 

Low to Moderate Support for Flat Feet

We recommend the Brooks Glycerin GTS 20 shoes for flat feet that need low to moderate support.

The Brooks Glycerin GTS 20 is a comfortably cushioned supportive shoe. It uses the Brooks GuideRails® technology to stabilise the foot. It also has a low heel-to-toe drop of 10mm to reduce the pressure on the plantar fascia.
