Foot Facts -- Medial Arch Types

The medial arch is the largest of the foot's arches. It runs from the heel to the ball of the foot.

There are three basic types of medial arches – Normal, Flat and High.

To identify your type of arch, perform the “wet test” as described below and compare your results with the images to the right.

Wet Test Procedure

  1. While seated remove shoes and socks and place construction paper or paper bag on the floor.
  2. Place either foot in water.
  3. While still seated, place your damp foot on the paper; exert pressure to simulate standing.
  4. Do not stand or walk while your feet are wet.
  5. Remove your foot from the paper and dry completely.
  6. Repeat the process with your other foot.
  7. Compare the image(s) on the paper to the ones on this page to determine your arch type.
