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.

Ideally, one foot at a time is the safest to minimize falls/complications. ...Read more

FLAT feet and fallen arch. Is it best to get custom RX orthotics for feet or store bought ones? Please advise. Dr. said no more run at surgeyr risk
Flat feet: Either at first. Try an inexpensive over the counter arch support first. If symptoms improve greatly then should be ok. If symptoms slightly improve then custom orthotics are recommended.
