flat footed children

Two of my triplets age 5.5 and my 7 yr old are extremely flat footed. My sister who is a Physical therapist for the county school system says their feet are starting to "pronate". We usually buy Walmart of Traget tennis shoes for them. Should I switch to new balance shoes or do nothing? They do occassionally have some arch area pain after a day of busy activity, but this rare.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
