I have been wearing a pair of off-the-shelf orthotics to correct a foot problem. I can't seem to keep them from sliding out the back of my clogs or the front of my sandals. Is there some way to hold them in place?

Shoe inserts, also called orthotics, aren't made for use in an open-shoe design. They are best used in Oxfords, tennis shoes, or loafers. They can also be slipped inside a boot or other lace up or high top shoe wear.

If you can't walk pain free without the orthotics, you may have to put the sandals and clogs aside for a time. Some people can go without the inserts and wear these more stylish shoes for an hour or two. It may be possible to go without orthotics when the occasion doesn't call for long periods of walking or standing.
