Foot/ankle pain over last few months

It comes when walking and goes after I stop and rest. It radiates around on the top of my foot and around my ankle. I only noticed it starting earlier this year and it so happens to be the time I started living in my converse. I do pronate a bit but it's never been a problem. I also think I used to lace them a bit tight because of how they sat. Could this be some kind of tendinitis? How do I go about getting rid - I am wondering about some kind of insole for a while. I remember as a child I was told to circle my ankles for exercise. Maybe I just need to work on strengthening the arch? I'm not wearing the converse any more but it still aches whether in my work flats or dm flora boots. Both otherwise comfy shoes and just what I tend to wear most at the moment. I don't want to rush to the docs if it's just one of those things but it doesn't seem to be going away. Interestingly, I recently went to a wedding and wore some low heels and I don't remember any pain at all.
