Hi Andrea,
It sounds like you have a pretty good combination....as long as your spenco insert is high enough in the arch you should have no problem walking and hiking. My suggestion to check is put your insert on the floor then put your barefoot on it. Make sure it is hugging up under your arch when you are not weight bearing...if it is then you should be fine....if it's not you should add some more arch support so that the plantar fascia doesn't get strained.

Make sure you do your warm up stretches in the morning before you weight bear too! You want to warm up before you thrust the weight of the body on your feet.

Good Luck!
Regards,
Tony Grady
