Soccer orthotics: Believe it or not - just like sneakers are specialized these days for every sport you can get orthotics the same way. Particularly if they are custom made - custom impying you can have anything you want. If you need help contact a podiatrist.

Soccer boots: Do not have much room. Also, for the running and sudden changes of direction, there has to be some flexibility to the supportive shell. Orthotics come as rigid, semirigid, semiflexible and flexible. For soccer, i'd choose something semiflexible. Supportive enough without being overly rigid or overly flexible. Your podiatrist may have otc versions in stock or can make custom if needed.
