Superfeet or other over the counter orthotics are worth a try. Dancers pad can work for seismoid bone issues (a bone located under the base of your big toe). I am a bit biased but I think it’s worth trying an over the counter and doing a running evaluation prior to custom orthotics. They are expensive and aren’t guaranteed to help.
A running evaluation at a PT clinic or sports performance center can look at your gait (running pattern) and specifically how your foot is hitting the ground. If after a couple miles of impacts (10,000-15,000 steps/impacts meaning 5-6 miles) it’s starting to hurt you should see how you are impacting the ground.
i know it’s not a quick answer but I hope that makes sense
