    I’d like to star with the obvious from the topic’s name. I have flat feet. My left more than my right, this couple of years I’ve build what I’d call a decent arch on my right, and a very little tiny one on my left, since when I was younger but feet would be totally flat.

    While playing basketball I used to experience some left knee issues and on eventual around the ankle pain, like on internal side of it. It was probably related to this. I don’t know.

    What would be your general recommendations for lifting and running?

    And while I was seeing stuff on CVS I came across this machine that measures your feet and how much pressure you place on each side of each one and that. I tend to place more pressure on my heels and ball of my foot according to the results. They recommended me some soles, of 3/4 length and full length. What do you think of those? I used to think that by using this you are neglecting your own responsibility to contract the muscles of your feet, strengthening them and build your own arch support. But doing this while, running or walking long distances is not only impossible but also counter productive from what I feel.

    I thought about buying the 3/4 length one.

    I attached the photo of the pressure distribution of my feet (I don’t know why it shoes not much pressure on my heels but when I was there my first look at the screen was a ton of pressure on my heels)

    This are most of the results I got in my mail just in case you want to take a look:

     

     

     

    You Have High Foot Pressure
    You tend to put more pressure on your feet while standing or walking, which can lead to moderate to severe foot stress and discomfort.

    High pressure is generally found on the heel and ball of foot.

    The CF420 disperse your foot pressure to minimize stress and discomfort. Also they reduce the shock from your heels hitting the ground that can travel up your leg with every step.

    You Have Low Arches
    There is very little arch definition with an arch that sits low to the ground.

    Feet with low arches tend to roll inwards and over-pronate, flattening the arch which causes the lower body muscles to work more to manage body weight while on your feet.

    The CradleFlex arch support system reinforces and supports your low arches, which can provide stability and help you put less pain-inducing stress on your knees or lower back.

    CradleFlex® also helps evenly distribute the pressure to prevent pain from being on your feet.  ”

    Strengthening your gluts and adductors will help pull your alignment up, allowing the arch to return.
    A Balanced pelvis is also important.

    I think glutes and adductors are specially important for an stable pelvis. But why specially (because all muscles are important) glutes and adductors for flat feet?

    For some reason the text I wrote couldn’t be send so fortunately I took a screenshot of it before something happened.
