People used to say that you needed to purchase running shoes that would limit the amount of impact on your joints. Additionally, you wanted shoes that would prevent your foot from rolling inward or outward (overpronation or underpronation, respectively).
Under or overpronation was generally believed to cause running injuries, including calluses, bunions, runner’s knee, plantar fasciitis, and Achilles tendinitis.
Scientists have recently provided evidence that neither of these things are true. In fact, runners with pronated feet suffer fewer injuries than those without, and the type of shoes that you wear don't really change the amount of impact your knees and other joints are receiving.More...

However, the study did show that comfort played a major role in preventing injuries. The team worked with soldiers to gather their evidence.
They gave one group a variety of shoe inserts and were told to pick the ones that were most comfortable to them. The other group, though, was given standard shoes. The soldiers who were able to pick the most comfortable shoe had fewer injuries.
Everyone’s body is different, so each person will be comfortable in a different type of shoe. The key is trying on lots of pairs and finding the one that is perfectly designed for your foot. Here are some options from Amazon that you’ll want to take a look at.
Please note, make sure you go to a brick and mortar store to try on the shoes before purchasing. Amazon will likely offer the best price, but you want to make sure you’re buying a shoe that you know is comfortable.
Depending on the size and color you choose, these shoes run (pardon the pun) between $36.39 and $85.50. They have the following features:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]

Another inexpensive offering from New Balance is the M750, which costs between $43.37 and $59.99. The difference between the two pairs of New Balance is that the M750 is lighter and has a slightly different styling. They feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
These shoes come in a variety of colors and are a bit more fashion forward than the more traditional running shoe. They are priced between $35.99 and $69.99 and feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
The price tag alone will help to explain why I hate Nikes. These cost between $74 and $199.99, and trust me when I say you’re paying for the name. If that’s important to you, here is what the 5.0 offers:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
I’ve already given my disclaimer about Nikes, so I’ll skip it here. These shoes are priced between $36 and $149.99, depending on the size and color.

These are priced between $32.93 and $82. They feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
These are seriously some of the ugliest shoes I have ever seen. You may like the bizarre color scheme, though, so don’t let my opinion scare you off. These are trail shoes that cost between $69.83 to $125 and feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
These cost between $58.03 to $200, depending on the size and color you order. Most of them seemed to run between $80 to $100. Nike advertises that they have:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
The Flex Experience Run 3 costs between $61.54 and $110. Nike promises:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
I love these shoes. First of all, I think they’re the best looking shoes in the list, and they have a low heel. I’ll mention again that you want a low heel to force yourself to run on the balls of your feet.
Your joints will thank you. These cost between $30 and $129.95 (most seemed to cost between $40 and $75). They feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
Please note that this is another trail shoe, so it will not be good for road running (they’re just too heavy). If you like running off-road, though, these cost between $45 and $99.99 and feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]
These cute, inexpensive shoes cost between $35.99 and $64.77. They feature:[list icon="icon: check" icon_color="#0fb157"]

At the end of the day, you will probably get the best deal buying shoes on Amazon.
However, since it is important to have comfortable shoes so that you do not hurt yourself, I highly recommend trying on a few pairs at a brick and mortar store to find the perfect pair, and then you can order those on Amazon.
