Flat feet on my 4 yr old daughter

My 4yr old daughter has been complaining that her knees and legs hurt her. Our pediatrician diagnosed her as having flat feet. He wrote out a prescription for orthotics of 1/8 to 3/16 arch lift. The cost will be close to $360 to have these made. Is there a less expensive way to support her little feet. I am assuming she will need to get new inserts every time she goes up in shoe size, which at her age is about every 6 months. Please help.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
