Maximum support for arch

Posted by john on 2/03/05 at 15:32 (168424)

I need some shoes that would give me the maximum support for my arches. I wear orthotics but my feet are so bad I cannot walk more than 5 or six blocks without pain. The worst part is the next day after walking my feet hurt so bad I don't even want to go out of the house to get food. I seem to do better with hard rubber soles and not athletic shoes.

It is very hard to say without knowing you foot type. If you are an overpronater, you may benefit from a motion control shoe (such as Brooks Beast) as well as an orthosis.
