    you can get shoes that can help and special insoles that gradually try to push the arch up.

    Much of the cause of flat feet is natural. The Converse shoes are not going to make your arches flat. Wearing shoes does not help feet to be stronger, it actually causes them to be weak. Shoes prevent many of the muscles in your feet from working properly, promoting a properly shaped arch. They also prevent the feet and toes from flexing as they should, in addition to suffocating them causing sweat and stink.

    If you are concerned about improving your arches, go barefoot when possible. This will help to strengthen your foot muscles.

    i have flat feet too ! theres no cure for flat feet well theres a surgery but it is not even guarenteed to help. there is no way to make a better arch in your foot but if you were the foot arch things they help your feet not get any flatter and give you a fake arch so your feet dont hurt anymore. i think they work im not sure though i have them but dont use them cause i wear flip flops all the time.

    Yes it will affect you because I cannot find shoes to fit because anything that has an arch at all, hurts!
