Saucony's (sneaker) are very good. I have 4 pairs. I also just got Birkenstock Shoes and have a pair of Teva sandals.

I have gotten good mileage and good comfort from Rockport Pro Walkers. They are not terrribly expensive. Be sure to get properly fitted, wearing a good pair of socks that you will wear when you are using the shoes (proper fit is critical!).

My Dr said to buy running shoes as opposed to
walkers, the idea being the arch support is much better
in running shoes. I purchased a pair of Nikes and I have
to say when they are on my feet feel the best.

I found that New Balance 800 Walking shoes took away the pain more than any other shoe and I've tried many different shoes. Remember that everyone's foot is different and just experiment until you find the right shoe. Good luck.
