Best Shoes for a High Instep

Shoe Knowledge


If you’ve come across this page, you’re probably looking for a pair of shoes for yourself and your high instep.

Let’s first go through exactly what this is, and how shoes should be considered.

The instep is basically the top of your foot between the toes and ankle.

A high instep means there may be a bit of a hump on the top of the foot.

The main thing to consider when looking for footwear for people with high insteps is how will the top of the shoe accommodate a pronounced dorsum (top) of the foot?

Tall Dorsum of the Foot

If the top of your foot has a good bump to it, which is typically the case with people who have very high insteps, you may want to consider a shoe like the FIT that has both a bit of shape with the arch area but it is also very very soft throughout the top of the shoe since its upper is a single piece of stretch-mesh material.
