  #1  Boots for feet with high arches???  Posted 27/01/2009 @ 14:05
Hi,

Can anyone recommend a manufacturer or boot that's good for people with a high instep (and slightly wide feet)? I will be getting fitted, but I want to make sure I go somewhere with the correct brand/model choice?

Ta.

Regarding high instep/arches, it will be more the insole you will be concerned about rather than the boot itself. You will want to replace the boot manufacturers un supportive insole with a more supportive one - such as Superfeet insoles or have custom ones made.

Doesn't exist as all standard footbeds are almost flat. You'll need a good insole like a Superfeet or Sidas Snow+.

I should have written high arch not instep in the original post. I've found some boots to be difficult to get on/off due to this, and I want a boot that will be comfortable without cutting off circulation across the top of my foot.

Off to Finland in a couple of weeks so need to be sorted for then.

Thanks for the advice.

You just need to loosen the inners more. Most boots will work without too much trouble as long as you don't over-tighten them.

I've got some big-ass feet with high arches that are also wide, I currently wear a size 13 US/12 UK Vans Fargo Boa and they are very comfy (I added some foam stick-ons from a board shop in the shell to prevent heel-lift) and I can recomend them whole-heartedly. I would suggest that what you really need is a boot with enough width to let your feet spread and if needs be, get some of those arch-support inserts you can get for trainers, etc, and put then under the insole... That should do it!

Definitely recommend superfeet, but don't just buy your shoe size - get a proper fitting done. My high arch is quite far forward, so I need to buy ones bigger than my shoe size and trim them to fit the boots.

I've been suffering from turf toe for a while, and finally bought orthotic. This was by far the last option. Orthofeet insole helped with discomfort immediately, and easily fit into most of my shoes--I just remove the insole and replace it with this. I didn't need a set, just one, but that's not a complaint, it's a great value! I wore them yesterday to walk my dog, and they didn't slip at all. I'm wearing them today with dress shoes and even without socks they're comfortable.
