Flat Feet Explained
There's nothing wrong with flat feet unless they are causing you pain or discomfort. Everyone's foot is different, and if yours are on the flattish side, you may be more susceptible to injuries or pain, but you can take steps to relieve any pain or discomfort that you may be experiencing.

What are Flat Feet?
For many people, the tendons in the foot connect in a way that lifts the middle of the sole. You are said to have flat feet (or sometimes called “fallen arches”) if you have a minimal arch or no arch at all — the entire bottom surface of your foot is in complete or near complete contact with the ground while standing. When you walk barefoot in the sand, your tracks will show a complete outline of your feet. Another way to show it is to wet your feet and then stand on a piece of A4 paper to see your foot outline.

Causes of Flat Feet
The shape of your feet is determined, for the most part, by your genetics. Most people have flat feet as small children as the internal structure of the foot has not fully developed. As people age, many people form a visible contour in the middle of their feet. Others do not. Either situation is considered normal.
You may have a visible arch and lose it as you age for a number of reasons. You could have acute injury to the arch of your foot. Being overweight can put excess pressure on your foot, which may cause flat feet. Simple aging is also an issue as your arches can flatten over time. Diseases like rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes can also be factors in this condition.
