September 22, 2014 marks the first day of Fall, and that means boot weather to a lot of people. Before you head out to the Poughkeepsie Galleria to buy your new Uggs, trendy riding boots, or the ever popular bootie, you may want to see if you have flexible flat feet .  Knowing what to look for, can help you find styles that will be comfortable without sacrificing fashion.

I have flat feet…

If you have flat feet, you can have a wide range of symptoms, and can be affected to different degrees.  No matter the cause, people with flatfoot have some degree of loss of the arch of the foot.  There are many types of flatfoot, but one of the most common types is called flexible flatfoot.

Do I have flexible flat feet?

Those with flexible flat feet have a slowly progressive flattening of their feet.  This usually starts in childhood or early adolescence, and continues into the adult years.  Both feet are generally affected equally with eventual stretching or tearing of ligaments and tendons causing inflammation and pain.

A flexible flatfoot means that although you have flat feet while standing, you still have an arch when you are sitting.

You may notice:
