Walking by Faith - I usually buy mine from The Walking Company. They have stores and online. Dansko and Abeo have been my go-to brands. If you can find a store, they actually scan your foot to determine the best orthotic for you (I've only had neutral or metatarsal). A few years ago I had plantar fasciitis, and that was the only thing that helped. I would get Dansko or Abeo brand plus a specialized orthotic, all for around $200 a pair!
I had forgotten about these, but this time I ordered a Dansko pair online with the metatarsal support built-in. There was a sale so it was only $99 and I didn't order a special orthotic. My feet are almost flat, and the metatarsal support which is usually for high arches, is seeming to supplement what is missing from my feet. I was having a really bad flare where instead of only hurting in the mornings, they were hurting whenever I was off them for a few minutes. So I don't know if the flare is over or if these are helping, but my lower back feels better too. Dansko's are the brands a lot of nurses use. The Walking Company has a fairly good sale section online, but not all have the metatarsal support. It will say it if it's there.
I used to order orthaheel slippers on amazon - similar concept. Those would break down fairly quickly though.
