A reader asks: Should I get a walking shoe or an orthotic?

I have a low arch, over 15% pronation and metatarsalgia of the right foot. Also over the years I’ve had minor fractures of an outside bone of the foot and ankle. My left foot has a low arch and minor pronation. My issues are discomfort when playing golf or standing in one place for extended periods. My quandary is should I get a walking shoe or an orthotic I can put in my golf, and regular shoes? Your website has the most extensive studies/reviews that I can find so do you have any suggestions? Thanks, Steven.
