Quoting Momma Mego:" I have flat wide feet so I'm guessing the Asics probably wouldn't be good for me if they have a big arch ? Oh wait what do you mean by arch ?"
You have three arches on the bottom of your foot, the highest typically being the medial longitudinal arch, which is the one everyone knows on the inner middle of your foot. Flat footed people typically need arch more so than anyone else, considering their foot is not pressing correctly in compliance with how it was created to stand. You don't need a really high arch, you just need good support in the right places, even in your arch. if you are looking to walk in a buy from a department store or such, you wont really be concerned with this considering most department store level shoes have little to no arch. If they are wide, consider a brand that commonly makes wides like New Balance. If you don't have much money but need something okay, try a Propet. I now work with Penneys and wouldn't mind a bit to show you a few to start out with.
