You can see if insurance will cover custom orthotics. You can also try an off the shelf insert such as Powersteps.

I highly reccomend the 'Pacific' model of birkenstocks shoes. I have very flat feet and plantar facitus. I wear these all day and then custom orthortics in sneakers the rest of the time. They are rubber and I wear them in the shower and as slippers - NEVER go bearfoot!!! You can find them at QVC.Com

Good luck
