HELP! Foot Pain

I have a 2 fold question and need some advice. I have flat feet and everytime I wear anything with a boot(snowboard, ice skates, roller blades) my feet start to burn and hurt. At least with snowboard boots it goes away after a little while, but it's still annoying and painful.
1. Is there any way I can deal with this without getting orthotics?
2. Is there a brand of boots that work better than the others? So far I've tried Burton(too narrow) and Rosi(good but got the pain for like half and hour).

Any advice?
Thanks in advance.

Trust me you need to get an orthotic insole. I was running 3 miles a day and ignoring my pain that it caused me leg. Before I knew it I had to come home from the Marines to have knee surgery. Mine were expensive but insurance paid for most of it. On top of that, I believe certain stores cell "custom" but not really custom ortho inserts. Don't just get the arch support you need to get something a little more serious.

Whatever you do it will be cheaper than surgery down the line.

Try the blue SuperFeet, they're only ~$35 and have a 60 day warranty if they don't work.

Yeah that's my problem, no insurance. Right now just looking for an alternative method of alleviating the pain and discomfort for the present/near future. The Super Feet sound like an idea, though. I hate that I have to take sideline breaks through the day just cause of this.

You can try Spenco insoles (green top, yellow bottom), there usually sold at Footlocker for $20. Lifetime warranty
