Ballet Flats Lack Arch Support
Ballet flats are a stylish, must-have component of any woman's wardrobe. More comfortable than heels but still as classy, flats can be the key component of your professional attire. On the weekends, more casual styles pull together that summer outfit or back-to-school look.
Many professional women prefer flats to high heels. Flats distribute your weight evenly over your foot. This means you are less likely to develop conditions like hammer toe, bunions, or even stress fractures. While flats allow your foot to remain in a more natural position, they don't provide a lot of comfort or support. Most flats have thin soles and minimal arch support.
This lack of support can have serious consequences for your feet. The overuse of ballet flats can cause:
Luckily, adding over-the-counter insoles for ballet flats can make up for their lack of support. Yet many inserts are bulky and don't fit easily into a pair of low-volume flats. Don't worry, Tread Labs came up with a solution.
