Good shoes are incredibly helpful to re-training and maintaining good walking and movement mechanics. Always remember the first rule is they need to be comfortable but beyond that a good heel counter, wide toe box and flexibility at the toe box (but stability behind the toe box) is usually recommended.
You should also be able to sense your WHOLE foot in a shoe when weight shifted on that side.
Included in the new shoe list is also a guide on what to look for in a good shoe. This year there are some additions to looking at how narrow the heel counter is so that it can really hug and control your foot on initial impact with the ground.

There's also a link to a You Tube video of Lori Thompson MPT, PRC explaining the shoe list for more information...
