Hi,
Anyone who knows much about super feet which one do I need for fallen arches so I have a lot pronation?

In reply to fire_munki:

For that you need proper orthotics not superfeet.

Suggest you contact your local physio clinic and ask if they have an orthotics dept.

Or local NHS one is:

Orthotic Services
Local Care Centre,
Mount Gould Road
Mount Gould,
Plymouth
PL4 7PY
Tel: 0845 1558074
Fax: 01752 314774

Cheers

Agreed its worth seeing a specialist, but for what its worth my mildly fallen arches are helped quite significantly by by the green superfeet in place of standard soft footbeds

The green ones (and orange, I think, but I've not tried those) are the most supportive, but might seem a bit too intrusive if you've got really flat feet - the blue ones might be a bit easier to get on with, in that case.
As above, though, proper orthotics might be what you need (though Superfeet I think still offer a two month trial period with full refund if you don't get on with them)

I have fallen arches resulting in pronation. I have two sets of custom made orthotics and a black pair of superfeet all three are comparable, have a look at the black ones if they don't fit go for customs.

In reply to fire_munki: try them all depends on your feet for which one you need. also see a specialist

In reply to fire_munki: There are lots of different ones and what is right will depend on the footwear and type of activity as well as what suits your particular feet. Their website advises going to one of their authorised dealers.

In reply to fire_munki: Ask yourself why you over pronate in the first place before jumping into a set of orthotics. I guess the best way to do that is, as others have suggested, to go and see a physio.

You could need orthotics or you could have fallen arches due to an easily fixed muscle imbalance in which case you'd be better off treating the cause rather than forcing your feet into unnecessary insoles.
