A runner who fits this description would want to buy a shoe that is a good shock absorber, has a good heel counter, good forefoot to hind foot mobility, a somewhat flexible forefoot, and that is made of dual density, accommodative, cushy material. Runners who have low arches tend to be pronators. This would call for a shoe that is a motion control shoe, with a stiffer forefoot and a good heel counter.
