I would tell you what shoes I wear but I'm not sure how helpful that would be. I *can* tell you that BEFORE I bought my current shoes, I went to the shoe store 3x, put on a pair, and walked all over the store for 10 mins at least.
Overall, you need a good fit and you also need to be aware of whether you walk straight, or if you're a pronator or suppinator (how you're feet move when you walk/run).
The 2 brands that have worked best for me are New Balance and K-Swiss but as for the specific models w/in those brands, it's really an individual thing.
My activities are walking /bicycling /golf driving range /treadmill.
