Is buying a shoe with higher arch support better support for my flat feet?

Is buying a shoe with higher arch support better support for my flat feet?

Have mild-moderate Overpronation/flat feet  & wear orthotics. OK to wear stabilizing athletic sneakers without orthotics?Same support?

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. This becomes even more important if you participate in high-impact activities like running. ...Read more
