For centuries, high arches were considered a sign of nobility and royalty. With 30% of the population affected by them, it may be a stretch to think that's still the case. However, noble or not, they are indicative of other things. Less glamorous but no less important, those with high arches are prone to foot pain and instability, particularly across the whole foot.
Wearing a high arch insole is one of the best ways to take care of this issue, as it helps to realign the foot into a more natural and better fitting posture. Using anatomic fit and biomechanical design, Bauerfeind have the best in high arch support.
Your arches' main function is to help you transfer weight from the heel to the front of the foot and back again as you walk and run. When this arch is higher than it should be, it means that each step puts strain right on the heel or ball of the foot, leading to instability and ongoing pain.
