Whats the best insoles and shoe for plantar fasciitis foot arch pain? Don't have benefits for orthotics so wanting to try a cheaper option first.

Not so easy.: A very sensible approach. The problem is that the arch support design is really dependent on your foot structure. Without knowing that detail, advice on which support to use is difficult and many times wrong. Some supports are for higher arches and some for lower arches. Some are more flexible than others. Shoes need to have a removable insole so that a better fitting one can be fit. ...Read more

Always had one leg longer than the other, past year ball of my foot on shorter leg increasingly more pain now arch pain and big toe numb. No injury?

LLD: A limb length discrepancy causes each foot to function different from the other; both abnormally. At 29, the long-standing LLD has finally become apparent. I personally like a scanogram to determine the exact difference; it gets right down to millimeters. After that, some type of orthotic device to accommodate the LLD. Maybe some back x-rays, to check for any compensation higher up. ...Read more
