Dubai is crossfit crazy. The main problem we see is injury to the arches of the feet from unsupportive footwear during weight sessions. We recommend buying a shoe made specifically for crossfit as it has a much denser sole to cope with the added weight and subsequent compression to the sole of the shoe. Arch injuries can occur if the ankles lean inwards and the feet arches are flattening.

Flatter feet actually have very strong legs as a compensatory aspect. However to get the most out of the power an alignment orthotic should be worn for up to 6 months to get the ankle straight. This will allow heavier weights to be lifted and deeper squats achieved. See our cross fit orthotics for neutral alignment and for flattened arches alignment. They are different.
