Cleated Shoes for Flat Feet

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Cleated Shoes for Flat Feet

i have very flat feet. I've tried every type of insole but my flat feet feel the pain in time. Would a very stiff shoe prevent this problem?

I looked at the SuperFeet website and didn't see a cycling specific insole. Like you, I've got super flat feet and anything that would help in that regard is definitely something I would look into.
