Hi everyone. I have kind of weak arches and was looking into getting a new pair of soft shoes. Does anyone have any idea which ones have good support? I've also heard of something called arch angels, does those work? And are there any other arch products out there for dancers? Thanks!

depends what you mean by weak arches, do you mean you want shoes to inhance your arch?
or do you injure your arches alot??

(sorry im a bad speller)


cause if you just want to inhance your arches, then give celtic choice a go.. :)
they pull up at the arch so they mould to your foot when you break them in..

for weak arches, as in you injure them, i have no tips sorry..

i have weak arches too.
i have never heard of arch-support in ghillies so the only advise i have for you is to go to a podiatrist (foot doctor) and get custom-form orthodics that you wear in your regular shoes and your arches should get enough support from them to not get injured while dancing...that is what i had to do after injuring myself at a dance class last summer and now my feet are much better.
hope this info helps!

i have plantar fasciitis and i went to a feis this weekend and i got amazing arch supports. and you can wear them with any type of shoe (even while you dance in your shoes!!) and even barefoot. i put them on and i had instant relief.
