I need to make sure I have enough support in my arch. Do these shoes have a sufficient to support my foot or would recommend a different style shoe?

You won't find arch support, in the traditional sense, in any minimalist shoe. I have low arches and wear vibram fivefingers. I have had no arch issues.
Minimalist shoes tend to encourage you to adopt a more ergonimic mid or front foot strike. These types of strides put the impact on the ball of your foot, which then transfers up through the arch, which is now bearing your weight the way it evolved to. your feet and knees will not feel the impact, but your calves will work more than you're used to.
