I’m a Bont fan, in part for the wider toe box, but I’ve also got quite low arches, not so far as flat, but low. I’m not sure what makes a fully moldable shoe like Bont “best for high arches” since one can shape the foot bed as needed, but I actually had a fitting done(FitMi, Ann Arbor) where she put me on an insole with more arch support than the stock Bont one, which suggests to me that the footbed in those shoes was lacking in arch support. I’d never shaped the arches lower, so I dunno if it was that A3 model design or if it’s just not accurate to say Bont are best for high arches, but given the moldable feature alone, I’m thinking the latter.
