Most people have an arch along the inside of the foot, leaving a gap between the ground and the foot. Some arches are higher than average. This condition is called Pes Cavus, and usually involves supination. Usually hereditary, people with high arches have very poor shock absorption in their feet, and while they may not always experience pain, it can occur in the arch area. Because high-arched feet are more rigid, they often under-pronate. Therefore, neutral shoes with excellent shock absorption and moderate arch support as well as replacement insoles are recommended for the most comfort. Product recommendations: A shoe with a high arch.
