Topic - Flat footed

climb the peak - on 27 Jan 2013
Went to get some new road running shoes earlier on today and thought I'd take advantage of there free gait analysis. Turns out I completely over-pronate and am flat footed which I had no idea about. Anyway the shop assistant recommended I get some shoes with arch support which I did.
Does anyone else have experience with flat feet and would you say arch supporting shoes are a good idea?
I run fairly regularly and haven't really had any running problems apart from the occasional bout of shin splints which I think is just due to increasing mileage to quickly.
Advice would be great
cheers Alex
Oh and I am a bit sceptical as to whether or not arch support is needed or if it's just an excuse to make more expensive shoes
