Do you prefer to wear slip on shoes but have a foot condition that requires you to wear more supportive shoes? Are you wondering whether there are slip on shoes out there that can properly support your flat feet? I have fitted certain supportive slip on shoes for women with flat feet that have helped treat and prevent foot pain, and hopefully, they will work for your feet as well.
How Do I Know Which Slip On Shoes Provide Better Support than Others?
I am an expert when it comes to fitting women’s shoes since I have been working for a specialized shoe store for the last 10 years. Moreover, I have been helping women find the correct type of shoes and orthotics to reduce or fully eliminate the foot and leg pain that they were having. We specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well.
I usually don’t recommend slip on shoes for women with foot problems, as I prefer shoes that provide either velcro or laces. When there is no secure closure to hold the foot in place, it’s hard to get the full benefits that the shoes have to offer. With that said, if you prefer slip on shoes over sneakers or other types of shoes, I am going to show you the most supportive styles.
What Makes the Slip On Shoes I Recommend Ideal for Women with Flat Feet?
1️⃣ Shock Absorption and Supportive Outsoles
This feature will reduce the impact that your feet take every time they come in contact with the ground. If you tend to overpronate or you have noticed that your feet collapse when you are standing (you might be flat-footed), a shoe with a substantial outsole will help straighten your feet and legs.
2️⃣ Firm Heel Counters with Good Ankle and Heel Support
The shoes I recommend provide targeted support right below your heels to minimize impact and pain. Some women’s feet collapse from having rolled ankles. which means that their heels deviate from the midline. Slip on shoes that provide a firm heel counter and additional support right below the heels help prevent the feet from collapsing and turning inwards.

Please note that to get the full support and stability that the slip on shoes that I recommend have to offer you must wear them in the correct shoe size.
For example, do you know whether you have narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide feet? Do you know if you have a high instep? These are all key factors that you must know before you buy your shoes online as they directly impact the final shoe size that you need to order. To help women determine their exact foot shape and foot size from home I created a different article called:
If you happen to have a specialized shoe store in your area I strongly suggest that you visit the store to have your feet properly sized and shoes properly fitted. If you don’t happen to have a store in your area, below you can find a list of supportive slip on shoes for women that I have fitted before.

Supportive Slip On Shoes for Women
Take a look at the description below each shoe to find out whether it can accommodate your specific foot shape (narrow, medium, wide, extra wide), as well as what features the shoe provides, and the size that you should order to prevent your longest toe from rubbing against the front part of the shoes.
All of the slip on shoes that I recommend come with a removable lining (so that you can add your own orthotics if needed), come in different widths (medium and wide), and have supportive outsoles with firm heel counters (for extra arch and heel support).
Please note that how effective these shoes will be in helping treat your flat feet and prevent foot pain depends on your individual foot anatomy. Remember that to get the full support and stability that the shoes have to offer you must wear them in the correct shoe size.
