The Most Supportive Shoes for High Arches

Having a shoe with a well defined arch is essential to comfort and stability as you move. Unfortunately, so many shoes are designed totally flat and lack any defined arch support. These flat shoes we wear on flat, hard surfaces make it difficult to avoid foot pain.

It’s well known that wearing shoes with proper arch support is beneficial to your entire walking gait. From balance to muscle strain to joint and ankle pain, shoes with good arch support are a necessity for everyday foot health.

What about shoes for high arches?

When you have high arches, it is even more crucial to wear a shoe with good support in the arch. The many varieties of flat, poorly cushioned shoes only serve to flatten your feet and cause foot pain. The best arch support is sufficiently rigid to provide good support, but is flexible to keep your foot flexing naturally.

KURU shoes are the best shoes for high arches. With a custom orthotic footbed, you get a shoe that forms to your own foot, giving you amazing comfort and support in the arch.

KURU Shoes

Best shoes I've ever had I've had problems with my feet and legs for years. I have hammer toes, a high arch and a high instep. I've also been told that I have a degenerative neurological disease that affects my leg muscles. I bought my first pair of the (KURU) shoes about 8 months ago. We just returned from 10 days at Disney World and I had been very apprehensive about my ability to walk that much. I bought a new pair of (KURU's) about 3 weeks before the trip and wore them every day - walking around 8 - 10 miles a day and and had absolutely no problem. These shoes are well worth the money.


The Best for long hours on your feet I bought my second pair of the Kuru Shoes and they were great. Did not take me long to break into them. I am a RN and work 12 hour shifts in the ICU. I got them as I have a high arch and it helps my heels hurt less with the extra cushioning.


Qualities of Shoes for High Arches

By contouring to the shape of your foot, KURU shoes give you perfect arch support as nature intended. What’s more, the amazing HeelKradl™ cups and supports your heel better than any other shoe. This gives you a healthier, more centered heel to toe strike for better overall foot health as you move throughout the day.

KURU Shoes vs Flat Shoes Fat Pad Comparison

The abundance of flat shoes with little to no arch support made the custom orthotics industry thrive. If you needed quality arch support in your shoes, you used to have to purchase costly custom arch support inserts. KURU has changed this.

We realized that built-in arch support in a shoe is the most effective way to get lasting comfort and support for less. Think of the benefits of wearing shoes for high arches with a custom arch support insole in the footbed.

When you have high arches, only a shoe with powerful arch support will give you the benefits you deserve from a supportive, comfortable shoe. KURU shoes for high arches are designed with the patented KuruSole™ midsole technology built to give you a more anatomically correct fit.
