It is important to have good shoes. They provide a stable foundation to your gait. Most shoes offer poor stability. For most people the orthotics you can buy in a sports store will provide better stability than the foot bed most shoemakers provide.

Occasionally a patient will come in with ankle problems where the forefoot or heel does not align to the ground. In situations like that custom made orthotics are necessary to correct knee/ankle and foot problems that store bought orthotics will not correct.

After I get everything aligned, I make a cast of the foot; provide the degrees of correction necessary so the orthotic allows the foot to contact the ground in a healthy manner. Not everyone needs custom orthotics, but when you do they are a blessing. I have found that the combination of temporarily shoring up a profound ankle deficit with orthotics, and correcting the posture/gait problem, the ankle often comes back to its normal healthy state. After that, store bought orthotics are quite adequate.
