My feet have been hurting while walking. Getting new shoes didn't help. Insoles & arch support made it worse. What else can I do?
See a Podiatrist: Sounds like you have done all that is reasonable on your own.

I stand at work 8 hours a day, is it more ideal to get insoles with good arch support or good cushioning? Or is it more preferable to have both?
Orthotics.: First you want good supportive shoes. You should not be able to "wring" them or fold them in half. They should only break/bend at the widest part of the shoe. A sturdy athletic shoe (not a minimalist style) will give you good support. If you're looking to beef up the shoes you already have, get a good insert or custom orthotic: you can use them to improve the shoes you already own. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Custom orthotics: It sounds like you have a pes cavus foot type,(high arch) This type of foot requires a deeper shoe and wider toe box. There are no adequate over the counter inserts I know off. You can built up the bottom of the arch support. The best is to obtain a custom orthtotic made from a mold of your foot. This stabilization will decrease the splaying of your forefoot which will decrease toe space. ...Read more
