Comfortable Women's Flats flats with arch support

5 Graceful Flats With Arch Support (Yes, it’s true!) 2024

Flats with arch support could be considered an oxymoron. Arch support is curvy, flats are flat. However, more and more shoe brands are sneaking in as much as they can without forcing the shoe out of the “flat” category into “comfort loafer.” I’m not promising the same kind of support you’ll find in your New Balance tennies, but your arches will notice anywhere from moderate to excellent support in one of these options (see our category dedicated to comfortable flats for women for even more ideas):

Vionic Willa
Vionic Orinda

Through some sort of shoe magic, Vionic has designed a stylish, low-profile flat with an abundance of arch support–kudos to them! Not only has the Willa flat received the American Podiatric Medical Association seal of acceptance, it continues to garner 4 to 5 star reviews from customers for comfort and fit. The Vionic Willa is available in sizes 5-13, medium and wide widths for $129.95 from, Zappos, Nordstrom and Amazon. I also just noticed a new square-toe flat by Vionic called the Orinda that comes in narrow to wide widths–check it out!

Frankie4 Elizabeth

Podiatrist-designed yet far from frumpy, Australian brand Frankie4 gets high marks for style and comfort. The Elizabeth flat features Frankie4’s Sole Hero footbed with built in heel, arch and forefoot support. Available in sizes 6-13 for $185 from

Dansko Mollie

The Dansko Mollie flat offers supreme comfort with its arch support, making it ideal for long hours on your feet. Its sleek design complements various outfits, transitioning effortlessly from casual to semi-formal occasions. The durable construction ensures longevity, while the cushioned footbed provides unparalleled comfort. A stylish and supportive choice! Available in euro sizes 36-42 (6-12) for $140 from Dansko.

Dansko Larisa

The silhouette is slim and trim but comfort features abound, such as a generous toe box, enhanced arch support and a rubber outsole with just enough lift at the heel (3/4″). Find the Dansko Larisa in euro sizes 36-42 (5.5-11.5) for $125 from, Zappos, and Walking Co.

Aetrex Brianna

If that gorgeous nubuck jewel-toned teal doesn’t win you over, the enhanced arch support, memory foam insole and stretchy vamp will! Keep in mind the footbed is not removable in the Aetrex Brianna. Find the Brianna in euro sizes 36-43 (6-12) for $130 from Zappos, Amazon, and The Walking Company.

The L’Amour des Pieds Xavar flat is a quality-made beautiful shoe with a memory foam insole and moderate arch support–more than you’d find in a typical flat. Find it in sizes 5.5-11 for $239.95 from Nordstrom.
