All can be fine: This is hard to answer. It depends on the quality of the shoe, how well it fits the shape of your foot and, most importantly, how well it feels.

Your podiatrist may have otc versions in stock or can make custom if needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A mofication to your orthtoic by your podiatrist will help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
