Thank you for your mail, although podiatrist deal with paediatric foot condition, I would suggest that you consult with a physiotherapist with an NDT qualification and that has a special interest in children. The problem could be structural or functional in nature and depending on that could be corrected with exercises. Customade in-shoe devices would only be considered at an older age.

I have the same sort of question, but in the opisopte direction. I have *terrible* feet and use motion-control shoes plus orthotics. Now I''m due for new orthotics. I will definitely be bringing my running shoes along with me for my fitting. But is there a chance that the orthotics plus the MC shoes are too much?
