If I run more than 1.5 miles my knees and ankles start hurting, and then hurt for a few days after. I got some asic running shoes, but they didn't help much. I have pretty flat feet. Maybe I need more padding?

Are you just starting to run after a long layoff?
If you are running for some sort of fat loss or fitness... I suggest cutting your running to 400-800 yards (0.25-0.50 miles), and then just walk (10-30 minutes). You joints will slowly adjust to the stress.
Has anyone paid attention to your running form? As for the ankles... they might be tight and lack conditioning, work on stretching them more often.
I'm not familiar with flat fleet, so maybe others can chime in about the insoles (dr scholls) and other personalized stuff to help deal with that.Training Journal:

It may be too that you just have the wrong pair of shoes for your feet. It may take a while to find the "right" shoe.
You may also need some sort of arch support or orthotic.

What would someone look for in my running form?

If you are okay with only 1 mile... I would suggest to just stick with that and walk the rest. Over time you could slowly increase the length you are running. You never answered what was your goal? why are you running?
I'm no expert in running mechanics... but some things could be wrong.
- If you were sedentary... your hips, hamstrings may be too tight... you maybe have bad posture. Maybe your stride is too short and you keep applying too much pressure on your knees. When you run, do you feel soreness in your hips, hamstring, glutes? or just quads, knees, and ankles?
There is still lots of information missing to properly help you out... IMO.
As for shoes and your flat feet... maybe a simple fix such as arch support (like previously mentioned) could be the solution. But I have no idea (I'm not confident to give advice on it.).Training Journal:
