so although their products aren't designed soled for the purpose of arch support, it would incorrect to say they have nothing to do with arch levels.

Well reasoned. I should rephrase that first statement to say this instead:

SF Yellow is/was not designed as an arch support product (comparing where the arch structure is on the footbed compared to your own foot's arch reveals a backwards shift in the footbed's placement) but rather a heel support product with the arch structure built in not to support it solely, but to try and maintain SF's profile of one's foot in its 'optimum' position.
