Feet - fallen arches - lack of efficiencyderek2188

Does anyone else out there have foot issues? I think my falling arches are robbing me of efficiency. I was thinking of getting ankle braces.

Has anyone used them or encounteres similar problems?

I have the flattest feet in North America. When I walk on the beach, the tracks look like I'm wearing plywood sandals. I don't see how it could steal effiency in cycling, though--like anybody else's feet, they bend as far as they bend, less far if I'm wearing stiff shoes, and then they transmit what I laughingly refer to as "power."
Don't see how ankle braces would help, either. My ankles are fine.
