Dude, hammer on nail! I have no arch support whatsoever without orthotics. My metatarsals just collapse completely. I have custom orthotics in my gym and dress shoes. I got new custom orthotics for my snowboard boots last week and was hoping they would reduce the pain, not increase it! I'll check out the Sole thin and might go back to my podiatrist to see if things are fitting properly.
