Variety: There are many good otc insoles. A few of my favorites are: powersteps, superfeet, spenco orthotics and birkenstock. There are many others.

Are shoes of asics good for flat feet coz this international brand is only available in india & skechers too are available?
It depends on how...: ....they feel when U put them on. They should B comfortable right away. Get the proper size in the store @ walk around on them. They should feel good. If 2 tight or 2 short, don't buy them. They don't break in like some leather does. If not comfy U may also need arch supports if Ur flat feet R quite bad. Don't pay good money on uncomfortable footwear.
Failed to mention in an earlier question that I have flat feet. About to do some serious walking at disney. Are new balance shoes a good idea?
Can be: I personally love new balance. However, what I love most about them is the many types of shoes they make for many types of feet, as well as insoles. Plus living near the outlet is nice. The most important thing is finding a pair of shoes of any brand and/or orthotics that work for you. Footwear experts, especially at stores that cater to runners...Or doctors specializing in foot/ankle can help.See 4 more doctor answers

I'm looking for a really good orthotic insert for my shoes. Any recommendations? I have terrible flat feet due to Marfan syndrome.
Marfan or Marfanoid: flat feet: "Severe hindfoot valgus, also noted as medial deviation of medial malleolus (by clinical finding, not imaging)" is usually present, and treatment may be a matter of personal preference...Orthotics may be useful if pain is present. Custom-made soft orthotics may be needed to assure the proper fit essential for effective treatment." pdf download for orthopedic care found at marfan. Org
One that feels good!: Just as people come in different shapes, sizes and have different needs, so do come shoes. I believe there is no one shoe that is the best. Make sure it fits well, is comfortable to wear. You may come to find you do better with brand a over brand b. Go to a reputable athletic shoe retailer and see what they can offer in shoes and expertise.See 2 more doctor answers

Removable insoles: Buy a shoe that is really comfortable for you that has removable insoles, since most of the insoles in shoes are junk. Replace them with (my opinion) spenco polysorb insoles - walker/runner, cross trainer, or total support. Http://www. Spenco. Com/products/footcare.See 1 more doctor answer
See below: Unless you have a flexible flat foot insoles will not be helpful. If flexible then try a spenco support.

What is the recommended type of footwear for someone with flat feet? Do I need to switch the same orthotics from shoe to shoe or can wear diff brand?
Shoe guide: Flat feet and bunions require wider shoes to accommodate the deformity. A rigid, stable shoe is best. No more than 2 inch heels because it puts too much pressure on bunions. More importantly, the shoes have to support the arch whether with built in inserts or store bought inserts. Sandals need to have built in arch supports as well.See 3 more doctor answers
They can be...: See a podiatrist and your visit should include a foot examination, possibly xrays and gait (walking) evaluation. Orthotics are prescription devices to help accommodate and help the foot function. As a means to treat conservatively (avoid surgery), many times, orthotics are used to hold the foot in good anatomic position and avoid abnormal mechanics which can lead to further problems.See 3 more doctor answers
