Haven't been active for a while, been busy, will be more active on site again :D.

Anyway lads all i wanted to know was, what's their views on people with flat feet?

Are they likely to turn someone away because of having flat feet or they don't mind massively?

I do actually have special inserts for my shoes which does help correct it.

Hiya fella,
i have flat feet, self diagnosed but ex army PTI pointed it out to me. Havent got inserts or anything for my shoes, maybe i should look into it?
Anyway on the medical did not get checked for it at all and i have heard if you disclose it you are eligible for some special boots with inserts, so do not think you need worry about it. :)

Excellent :), yes mate try the inserts i must admit it helps me a lot. I need to get some new ones *text deleted*, with a higher arch as my leg still flicks out when i run, you have similar problem?

Ye i know lots of people with it, its quite common. That's orite then.

I would recommend in investing in some inserts mate :D.

When you run, your leg, flies to one side rather than running, with your leg straight, it kind of flicks to one side.

Ye same mate, the ironic thing is i used to run for North of England, but flat feet never really effected my running it was my op.

I wouldn't know mate, as i get them free, for some reason, as my mum also has this, as well as it running in the family. I get referred to someone who measures my feet etc.

But just type in Flat Feet insoles on Google, some good ones there mate.

Go to www.yoursole.co.uk they are probably the best ones. I paid £35 for mine in a running shop and they are good. Don't waste your time getting any from boots or jjb or anything like that.

They helped you a lot? Would you say they were worth the investment mate? Definitely need some, as the ones i currently have although in need of new ones, they aren't designed for running at all.

They support more than any others (Ive wasted so much money on insoles *text deleted*) as they're quite sturdy. I think it depends how bad your flat feet are. These are a really good buy at £35 and yeah i can notice a difference. But a lot of people have advised going to a podiatrist where insoles will cost around £100. Ive got the black ones.

Sweet mate, you've just helped two lads here.

Ye, specially made insoles are fooking expensive. My flat feet is pretty bad like, more so on my right foot.

Definitely getting some, aye the black ones are designed more for running, says hard impact etc.
