    Anyone have any suggestions for good running shoes for people with flat feet? I have very flat feet and pronated ankles, so running can really kill me without the right shoes. I had some Nike Skylons, but now even walking in those shoes gives me cramps through my arches, heels, and shin splints.

    I'm 6'2 ~245lbs, fatty. Anyone have any suggestions?

    go to running shoe store, and actual store not dicks, tell them you have flat feet, ask for 3 best shoes they have - don't look at price... pick out best one and maybe go for a quick jog in store/treadmill/in front of store... say thank you and write the info of the shoe down, come home order it off internet to usually save a few bucks if you're that cheap...

    Thanks guys. Looks like I have a whopping *ONE* running specialization store in my city, so I'll go down there and look around.

    And thanks for the link, TracerBullet. That helps.
