No arch support for my very flat feet
on September 20, 2012
I purchased these when they were a gold box value. They arrived promptly but had what appeared to be black ink stains on the white rubber portion of each shoe. Before deciding whether to exchange or request a refund, I decided to try them on the treadmill. They fit well, but after jogging for about 10 minutes, my arches were killing me! While I don't think these shoes would have caused blisters had I continued, there was zero arch support for my feet, and I felt that the impact to my arches was nearly as high as if I had run in a $10 pair of shoes. Because these have such sparkling reviews, I imagine they are great for people with normal arches; however, I'd suggest reconsidering if you have very flat feet like I do. I will have to repurchase the twice the price New Balances that I can run 5 miles in as soon as I pull them out of the box.
