If high arches, should I get custom-made orthotics or buy them at drugstore?

In brief: High arches

I would see a podiatrist first to determine which is better. Depends if you have a rigid high arch or do u get some collapse of the arch when you stand

In brief: Orthotics

There are no over the counter inserts that are made for a high arch foot.
Look for a podiatrist that can evaluate you as you may have the type of high arch foot that will be aggravated by orthotics.
