The reason why they may not give them, could be something like the fact that they provide too much support, so don't allow the muscles to strengthen - in which case, wearing them could be detrimental to the wearer.

Has the orthotist advised what would be a good shoe to wear with the insoles?

When ds had small insoles, we were advised to get something like a Piedro, but softer and with less support - so something like a Kicker is a good style.

Now he has splints, and it is advised to have a shoe/trainer with little support, as the the splints provide the support.
