What to look for in orthotics?
Look for an orthotic that is inflexible with good arch support. Push down on the arch. If it collapses under finger pressure, it is not rigid enough. Note that this type of orthotic may feel strange when first worn because of its rigidity and shape.

Is it OK to wear running shoes for walking?
