How important is arch support for walking?

I've been doing alot of walking lately, and am about to in college, so i'm wondering what the benefits, if any, are to shoes with arch support. Personally I love flip-flops, and puma shoes with a very thin sole and no arch support. Are there any negative side effects to walking alot with shoes that have no arch support, or any positive effects to wearing supportive shoes, besides comfort?
