In our recent discussion about UGGs, @thetats brought up an interesting article that, through comfortable, UGGs aren't actually that great for your footsies.
I think it can be agreed that anything without good arch support aren't great for you, which is where I need help from you ladies.
I've been looking everywhere for some insoles that will provide good arch support. I've tried Dr Scholls but the arch isn't nearly thick enough to provide me any relief. Has anyone found anything that's made for people with very high arches? My feet will thank you!

Try going to a podiatrist (aka a foot doctor) and getting custom-made orthotic insoles. Those things are expensive (~$500) but if you get a good insurance policy - they should be covered. I just got one for myself yesterday (haven't tried it out yet as it turns out they made me one for flats and I almost always wear heels).

I always see that store at metrotown called the good feet store.It always seems busy and they give free consultations.I have never personally gone in but I know a few people who swear by them that they saved there feet.You could check out prices online and see if they have a store in toronto.

Do you experience foot pain? If you do then you should really consult your doctor about getting custom orthotics. It could lead to other problems like knee pain and back issues if it is bad.
But if you just want something for added comfort then you can go for the store-bought ones. I've only tried Dr. Scholl's too and they were mediocre...

Yeah, the best option would definitely be to see a doctor, but right now $500 seems a little much for me to be spending on feet stuff :( Of course, health first! I'll have to consider it. It's mostly a problem for me when wearing heels though, and I'm sure if I go consult a doctor, he'll tell me never to wear heels :P
Aw, Bren! You just made my heart ache mentioning Metrotown! I miss my default hang-out spot :( Haha I was such a mall rat :) But I don't remember there being a store called the Good Feet Store. I'll defs check it out online. thanks :)

awwww sorry Jen that mall is pretty special lol.Im there ALL the time I know it inside and out.So I can see how you would miss it.Where the old theatre is at Metrotown right below it( outside) is Good Feet.Its also close to future shop.So its not actually right in the mall but considered Metrotown.Just around the corner from the bus loop.If you ever walked that way you would remember it its a hugeee store.
