Are women more likely to get high-arched feet than men?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi, I'm wondering how genetics may play a role in having high arches and whether it is more likely that a woman would develop high arches in comparison to a man. I have had high arches for a number of years, and now I am concerned that both my son and daughter may develop it as well.

There is some research to suggest that females are more genetically predisposed to inheriting high arches when compared to males. High arches are usually noted at birth but have been known to develop later in life. It’ll be helpful to monitor your children's feet as they continue to grow. Custom orthotics can be introduced into their shoes to provide support to the feet and limit any issues that may arise as a result.
