The term flat feet (also called a fallen arch) is a medical condition in which human foot arches are very low or the entire sole of the human foot is touching the ground. Flat feet in children may become regular arches later on. Adults with this condition may have problems involving arch development.
The opposite, less common condition is called high arch.
