Women's Shoes for Flat Feet
While flat feet don’t always cause discomfort on their own, they can contribute to pronation problems and other issues that lead to pain and stiffness. The best women’s shoes for flat feet offer extra cushion, as well as ergonomic support to lift your arch.
Features and Benefits of Women's Shoes for Flat Feet
Women’s flat feet shoes need to cushion your sole with every step. Even more important is ergonomic support for your arch. While you don’t want so much arch support that it strains your foot, look for shoes that gently lift your arch into a more natural position. The extra support not only helps with pain, but also your risk of pronation problems.
Flat feet can mean feeling every step, so you’ll also want shoes with a cushioned midsole to protect your feet. While some people with flat feet turn to inserts or orthotics, many KURU customers find that our built-in support gives them everything they need to keep their feet feeling great.

Understanding “FIT” notes:
ALL KURU shoes are sold in US sizing. IF the “FIT” note says “1/2 size small”, you should purchase a 1/2 size larger than your normal size (e.g if wear an 8, purchase an 8.5). If the note says “1/2 size big," then purchase a 1/2 size smaller than your normal size.
Common Causes of Flat Feet in Women
The most common cause of flat feet, by far, is simply genetic. Most people who have flat feet have had them since childhood, when their arches developed.
Some injuries, including repeated chronic stress, can lead to flat feet as well but this is more rare. The pain from flat feet often stems from increased strain and stress on your soles, especially when you’re wearing flimsy shoes.
Effective Ways To Manage and Treat Flat Feet
You may not be able to change the shape of your feet, but you can do plenty of things to compensate for any pain or discomfort flat feet cause. A stretching and exercise routine can strengthen your feet and surrounding muscles. This extra strength and flexibility reduces your risk of strain and injury.
One of the most important things you can do to manage flat feet is wearing the right shoes. Comfortable shoes for flat feet women with ergonomic arch support can help reduce your pain. Shoes for flat feet women can also help compensate for pronation problems caused by flat feet. That’s why every pair of KURUs features our patented technology and advanced design, with ergonomic support built into the shoe.
