Help I Have Flat Feet!

I need a good set of running shoes and I'm flat footed. Does anyone with flat feet have any suggestions? I'd like to try the nike frees, the puma H's or those weird Five finger shoes but I have no arch at all so the part where the shoe gets skinny would have to be as wide as the top part of the foot.

I run about 12 miles a week in Fivefingers, and my feet are so flat I make squishy noises on wet floors. I wear a 11 in "Chucks" and a 44 in Fivefingers.

Sweet, I'm going to look for a store that sells those fivefingers now.

My feet also make squishy noises, I can make suction noises to like "MOP MOP" when I walk on wet flat surfaces.

Been wearing my fivefingers around the house for a week now and a bit outside.

Havent ran yet but I love it.

Still a little apprehensive to wear them in public.

My feet are so flat that they almost didn't let me in the Army...I lift barefoot and run with Nike Free's (during running WOD's) or Puma K-Streets (when I'm just running).
