Not as supportive: It is okay to wear athletic shoes without orthotics, but you will not get the same level of support for your arch. Custom orthotics conform to your arch and can help limit excessive pronation. The best combination for support is to wear custom orthotics with a stable athletic shoe.

Use orthotic 4 overpronation+bunion used 2 wear aa width shoe age+bunin med width now.Heel backof heel&ankle still narrow should wear custom made shoe?

Gel heel liner: There are so many shapes and sizes of feet that shoe manufacturers cannot possibly make shoes for every need. What i would recommend you do is find a shoe that fits your toes and then purchase a gel heel liner that goes into the back of the shoe to help snug the shoe around the heel.
