    so, I MTO-ed my first dress shoes, since next november my brother would have his wedding...
    I kind of liking wholecut's simplicity, it looks sleek....WHEN NEW.

    the thing is I'm a flat footed, so I'm afraid it would distort the shape of the shoe in no time since it has no seams or panels to support its shape, what should I do? should I add inlay pad, or is there something to stuff under the shoe tongue to keep it's shape while being worn?
    I don't mind natural creases on the metatarsal area of the foot its natural and inevitable, but
    I'm sure I would hate any creases around the laces holes, since I have no foot arch to properly fill it.

    Superfeet have an arch support specifically designed for dress shoes. It is not full length so doesn't alter the size like a full insole does. Comes with little stick on velcro pads to keep them in place but I've never had a problem with them moving even without these.

    Orthotics. It's a whole science. They make insoles for shoes for flat footed people or people with other foot issues. You can probably get some basic insoles pre-made too from pharmacies.
