recommendation for sneakers.

Hi Doc ,

I'll keep this short as possible.

I have flat feet and mildly overpronate as well as recovering from lisfranc injury. I'm back to work next week (ARMY) and was wondering what running shoes you could recommend.

I need a pair in which can accomodate orthotics.

At the moment I'm looking at the Nike Free 3.0 and 5.0.

My physio says for me to stay clear of these, however with the mild arch support these shoes apply plus the support I will get from my newly made orthodics I thought that this might be a good combination.

Any thoughts or combinations would be much appreciated.

Re: recommendation for sneakers.

I also had a lisfranc injury and dislocation. My doc said that I will have to wear laced shoes with good arches in them the rest of my life. I've found that Reebok has a pretty good arch in them. I've also tried New Balance and they work, also. The main thing with me is that I now have to wear a wide shoe. Try different shoes on and you will find one that you will be able to wear. Be careful, though, because there are a whole bunch of shoes out there with no arch support at all and you cannot have that. Good Luck.

Re: recommendation for sneakers.

new balance is good for pronators as it is straight unlike Nikes. I wear orthotics in mine. < edited >
