In brief: It depends

Most good supportive shoes have some arch support built-in.
If you are wearing flat shoes, or have some pain/fatigue/aching in your arches or legs arch supports can be a good idea. Start with an over-the-counter arch support first, and if you still have issues see a podiatrist.
