Buying athletic shoes? Check your arch

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Athletic shoes should be tailored to your arch type (high arch, neutral arch, low arch). Not sure about your foot type? Dip your foot in water and then step on a piece of cardboard. Examine your footprint. If you see most of your footprint, you probably have a low arch. If you see very little of your footprint, you probably have a high arch.
