For those with flat feet, picking the right pair of running shoes means following a few rules for support. The flat foot can also cause instability of the foot bones, which then puts more stress on ligaments, tendons, and muscles, says Scott Spencer, DPM, associate professor at Kent State University College of Podiatric Medicine. “These structures try to stabilize the foot, and as a result, they can get injured or damaged in the process,” he explains. “One thing to keep in mind is that having flat feet isn't necessarily bad. There are many people with flat feet that have no problems at all.”

If you have flat feet and experience discomfort, it might show up in the form of shin splints, pain in the posterior tibial tendon (or the tendon behind the shin bone that supports the arch), Achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, midfoot arthritis, or ankle or knee joint conditions, according to Dr. Spencer.
