I have over-pronation & use orthotic. Told heel counter in shoe should hold foot snugly. Foot heel does ride up, how much too much?
Shoe counter: It may well be impossible to find an otc shoe that fits that well . If there is a lot of room move to a narrower shoe and remove the inner liner of the shoe as well to allow the orthotic to fit better.
