    Thank you ! My feet tend to bend towards the insides of my shoes when I stand/walk/run. I already ruined a pair of shoes in a months time. I've also been having back pain for the past 2 years and we always thought I had back problems until I was told I might have high arches. My arch is higher than most of my friends and family'sand I get pain in my feet a lot. I was just wondering if this could be the cause

    From a website called "Medicine Plus Encyclopedia"

    Unlike flat feet, highly arched feet tend to be painful because more stress is placed on the section of the foot between the ankle and toes (metatarsals). This condition can make it difficult to fit into shoes. People who have high arches usually need foot support. A high arch may cause disability.

    Shortened foot length
    Difficulty fitting shoes
    Foot pain with walking, standing, and running (not everyone has this symptom)

    Exams and Tests
    When the person stands on the foot, the instep looks hollow and most of the weight is on the back and balls of the foot (metatarsals head).

    Your health care provider will check to see if the high arch is flexible, meaning it can be moved around.

    Tests that may be done include:

    MRI of the spine
    Nerve conduction studies
    X-ray of the feet
    X-ray of the spine

    wet the bottom of your foot and make a foot print  if you can see the bottom of your entire foot you have flat feet    if there is a dry space between the ball of your foot and the heel  you have an arch

    I have very high arches in my feet. The only problem that I've had, is to find shoes that fit well. I've had no "medical" problems at all. I don't think you need to be too concerned about it but, as has already been stated here, the wet foot test works.

    the wet test is a pretty good indication  of if you have a fallen arch,or a high arch.

    Try to enlist in the armed services, they would tell you, bad news, if you do not, you are enlisted!
