Are Crocs okay to wear if you have flat feet?
Asked a year ago
My arches are very collapsed, and I am always skeptical about which footwear would be okay for me to wear. Do crocs have arch support, or do can I put orthotics inside a pair?

Wearing Crocs without additional arch support is not recommended for people with flat feet or collapsed arches.
While Crocs provide some cushioning to the foot, they don't provide the firmness and support you need to correct your flat feet as they're too flexible.
If you're planning to wear Crocs, you can make up for their lack of arch support by using custom orthotics. The shape of Crocs also allows for custom orthotics to be inserted and worn comfortably.

For better or worse, the rubber Swiss-cheese-like casual footwear hit the shelves in 2002, and are now available in a slew of styles and colors. The rubbery clogs, known as Crocs, may be easy to slip on, but they aren't great for your feet, according to some podiatrists. Invest in heel seat wraps or try out Upstep's custom orthotics for flat feet that is especially made to support flat feet and fits most Crocs too.

Crocs can help reinforce your foot arch, improve its cushioning, and shock-absorption, and keep your feet aligned. They do provide support to people suffering from collapsed foot arch but you would benefit from using a custom orthotics insert for flat feet. Those made by Upstep are excellent and designed by professionals who specialise in the treatment of flat feet and collapsed arches.

Crocs may prove to be a suitable dn comfortable shoe to wear should you have a slight pronation of the foot when weight bearing. People with severe pronation and flat feet may find their symptoms are aggravated by wearing crocs. Crocs however, will provide excellent relief from pain and discomfort to people experiencing abnormalities in the feet such as bunions, plantar fasciitis, or mornton's neuroma.
The soft, shock-absorbing qualities of the crocs reduce load applied to aggravated structures in the feet while walking or running, thus reducing pain and inflammation. Flat feet require a firmer and stronger sole to help prevent the inward role of the ankle, resulting in a loss of arch height. Crocs may not provide adequate support to your feet if they are in an older condition and other options such as hard sole shoes or custom othrotics may prove to be a better option. Crocs flip flops with arch support will be the best option and won't aggravate your symptoms.
