Ultimately, whatever shoe produces the least amount of pain is a good choice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

We are all different: There isn't any right answer. If you know a good podiatrist or orthopedic they may be able to recommend something specific for you. They can at least tell you terms regarding what your foot tends to do. How much do you pronate? Wide or narrow heel, wide toe box?

Soccer boots: Do not have much room. Also, for the running and sudden changes of direction, there has to be some flexibility to the supportive shell. Orthotics come as rigid, semirigid, semiflexible and flexible. For soccer, i'd choose something semiflexible. Supportive enough without being overly rigid or overly flexible. Your podiatrist may have otc versions in stock or can make custom if needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Removable insoles: Buy a shoe that is really comfortable for you that has removable insoles, since most of the insoles in shoes are junk.

Use back of heel cushions for foot heel to stay snug. Have over-pronation & orthotic. Heel cushion still allows for motion of heel. What is too much ?
Deep Heel Seat: It sounds as if the heel cushion is raising your heel and creating reafoot motion and instability. A deepened heel seat with your orthotic will help to stabilize the heel and prevent that excessive motion. A mofication to your orthtoic by your podiatrist will help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
