What type of orthotic is good?

Hello, I'm 36 and have plantar fasciitis for several years now... both feet, the left is the worst now. I seen a podiatrist last week and he taped both feet for 5 days and added some cushioning in my archs (high arches). The tape and cushion felt great and I had no pain even with working out on a treadmill, so he says I need orthotics.

My question is can I just use any type of arch support or should I get fitted for a custom orthotic?

Thx in advance,
