I currently use Korkers Chrome but I've developed planters fasciitis, I'm wondering if anybody is using a boot that has a good arch support or does anybody use an insert in the wading boot, any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.
Wading boots with support

go buy the the air supports from shoppers specifically for plantars, they are around $22, get the ones with the plastic arch support, the foam ones suck. the ones i have are airplus for plantars, have had them in my work shoes for a year and they haven't worn down at all. when you get them only wear them for a couple of hours at a time to start with, otherwise your feet will hurt more
there are no wading boots or shoes that will help that, I 've had to deal with that before, the pain lasted about 6 months. you need to walk on soft surfaces, and stretch it out best you can, push on a wall, roll a tennis ball under your foot. it will take a while for the pain to go away

I'll do that. Thanks for your help FF. So has your pain gone away? I was told that I would have the pain forever.

Your pain will go away if you follow FF suggestions.

as of now, im pain free, plantars can either be chronic, recurring, or just a one time thing, it just takes a long time to heal up from it, insoles and stretch it out best you can. basically what it is, is a swollen tendon, and some mornings you won't be able to walk on it when you get out of bed. it sucks, but you just gotta fight the pain away, and deal with it

friend of mine uses supportive hiking boots as his wading boot. they have the support he needed. they dont drain water as well and take longer to dry but his immediate comfort has a value that offsets those things.
maybe try to find some of those if the inserts dont work for you. just a quick google search of hiking boots and plantar fasciitis will lead you to several excellent brands/models
just stick to the ones with vibram soles if you want the better grip, assuming you dont put studs in them.
