    Not exactly a fashion question, but I just developed plantar fasciitis and need to get a good pair of inserts. Can't be too spongy/thick as it'll eliminates most of my shoes especially the heely types (which the doc actually recommends, engineers, cowboys), also, need the arch to be actually high enough and has to be rigid. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Pedag mini is the best for engineer boots. It’s a rigid 1/2.

    Might also be worth investigating a pair of White's Boots

    have them, had several. currently a pair of tall custom smoke jumper are the best, super heavy but miraculously dynamic to walk in.

    Don't underestimate the value of good inserts, and they don't have to be custom made. Even the Super Feet Green will surprise you. They have a regular and a high arch option. Around $20.

    Do you all use Superfeet insoles for your boots sometimes? I would have thought there would be a boot fit that works best over Superfeet. I've only ever used them for running shoes.

    I use them in hiking boots. They have the plastic arch support thing. Not sure if they all have that or not.

    These are not rigid, but I've used them with great success in Corcoran jump boots.
