Pes planus

pesplanus

 

Pes planus is a condition where the arch or instep of the foot collapses, coming in contact with the ground. When an individual walks, pressure shifts to other parts of the foot and causes pain. Correctly designed shoes will make the low-arch foot more comfortable. Drew footwear is designed with removable insoles that can be replaced with arch-supporting orthotics. Because the foot often pronates in flat feet, the body can become misaligned and other joints can be affected. Drew footwear has extended medial heel stabilizers, steel shanks and specially designed Lasts that allow for added walking stability to keep the body aligned.
