I'd go with 5" heels and 10 inches of straps, 

I'd post a cool song here but I've been banned from doing so.

Charlotte Running Company and Fleet Feet are quality stores as well. Once you know your needs (pronation/supination), check Academy Sports as their prices are less and they have them sorted by foot mechanics. I prefer Brooks, but as stated before, I always get last year's model. The last pair I bought were Brooks Adrenaline GTS 16 (originally $130 but I paid $55 because the GTS 17s are out now).

NB has always been great for me for every-day wear - 990s.  They are obviously friendly for your grizzly paws. I threw in some are-you-gellin? dr scholls pads with massage bumps in a pair of nice NBs that I had and it felt like I was getting a foot massage everywhere I walked.

I've got some brooks running and brooks trail running. I like both pairs.  I am having foot problems of my own but I can't see that they are contributing to the problems. REI will typically run some pretty good deals on last years' models.

Bottom line is that feet are all different. I think running stores all have pretty lengthy return and exchange policies.

Just curious here, but would a great set of boots be better than running shoes?

I don't have bad feet, so I have no idea.

I don't have bad feet per se, but I've always hurt after long stints in boots from USMC to fire service and EMS, even expensive boots made for comfort. 

Yesterday was my first day walking all day without any assistance and today my ankles are screaming, especially the right. I start out patient PT tomorrow so I'm having to ice and elevate today. It sucks.

A lot of what you're feeling is the result of your ankles and feet compensating for your bad knees and getting used to walking to alleviate pain. Now that your knees are fixed, you're using your feet and ankles in ways they haven't been used to in a long time.

It's very weird already.

Believe it or not, skechers are damn good shoes. 

 

 

I was actually going to recommend skechers in this thread.  Very under rated for the price - my wife and I have both had plantar faciitis, wear custom orthopedic insoles. And now wer skechers.   My wifes job keeps her on her feet almost all day - I bought her a pair of skecher work/ athletic type shoes - she says they are the best shoes she has ever worn.
