“Does this have an arch support?”

Asked by Marissa from Vancouver on 4/18/2016 11:44:31 PM
  • I have 4 pair now, I do not want them to go instinct on me! This shoe has what they call an anatomic foot bed. It raises up at the arch line of your foot, as you can see in the photo. I have extremely high arches and this shoe is the only shoe I wear now, constantly. I do have two pair of the sandal's that you slide your toe in-between, they also have the anatomic foot bed, and the heel shoc pad. Love them! And I have very painful feet if I do not wear these shoes all the time, it is 6 am. in the morning and I have them on right now.

  • Yes, the Teva Tirra Slide sandals have a fairly good support for your arches. They are made of a blendable molded sole. I have very flat feet so that is one of the reasons I like these sandals so much. Most of my sandals are leather with good arch support. I love these to wear to a pool or beach because they are not like flip flops which most people wear for those purposes. I can't wear those because there isn't any support (and I don't like anything between my toes). They can slip off your feet fairly easily but they have Velcro to adjust to your feet, which helps a lot. It's not usually a problem for me because they hug my feet well. I'm from Michigan but we have vacationed in Florida and Cancun since I purchased them. Hope this helps!

  • Thery were not the usual Teva sandal foot bed. I thought they seemed very flat.

  • Yes, these shoes do have some arch support. Just make sure to get your correct size. I wear a nine, but got 9 1/2 to wear with heavier socks. Just that half size difference threw off the support placement. Plus, I didn't need to go up 1/2 size because the adjustment straps across the top are excellent for widening or narrowing. I returned the 9 1/2 for a 9 :-)
