Learning how to tell if you have high arches can be a great step toward improving any foot pain you may be experiencing. Once you determine your arch height, you can find the right solutions to help relieve pain, correct foot issues and improve your comfort. Here's how to determine your arch height!
There are two important factors when it comes to your arch height:
An easy way to see the height of your arch in a weight bearing situation is to do a "Wet Test".
|Low Arches||Low arches are more challenging to fit. Using the test below, determine the flexibility of your feet. More flexibility = higher arched insoles.|
|Medium Arches||The most common arch height, about 40% of our customers are most happy with medium height insoles.|
|High Arches||A close 2nd to medium in sales, high arch heights indicate a healthy arch.|
|Extra High Arches||Few have arches this high. Many people with extra-high arches have less flexible feet and benefit from arch support that spreads weight over a larger area.|
With a little effort, you can achieve a level of comfort and support that rivals custom orthotics.
