Years ago a podiatrist prescribed me orthotics for over pronation when walking. They are rock hard carbon fibre and did help a great deal. On returning to cycling after many years I asked the podiatrist if I should still place the orthotics in my cycling shoes. They said I should, although as far as I know they have no cycling expertise. Likewise my LBS come bike fitter said I should too, but again didn't have any evidence or knowledge to back that up. I've persevered with them in my shoes for a couple of years, but I often wonder if I'd be better off without them or at least have a cycle specific pair. I know there are a lot of variables to take into account and it might not be that simple, but does anyone have any experience of this or know of anyone in the East Midlands who specialises in this area and can assess whether I need them or not?
