Accessories for a shorter foot?

I have one foot that is 1/2 inch longer than the other. Are there any good ways to make the shorter foot fit my shoes better?

Basically, while fitting myself for shoes recently I had to measure the length of my feet from heel to end of big toe. I discovered that my right foot (coincidentally the dominant foot) is half an inch shorter than my left. I have always bought shoes that fit my left foot best and my right foot ok. Is there anything I can do to make the shoes for my right foot fit better?
I've tried using insoles but they tend to lift my foot up and trap it sometimes too tight as opposed to stopping it from sliding forward. Is there something I can put at the front of my shoe that is comfortable, reusable, and useful?
Also, I am extremely flat footed as in no arch at all if it has any bearing on the discussion.
