Start with that website, patel.

They do a guide to what sort of shoes you should need. First things first, you should do the "footprint" test (there's a picture guide on the site) - it tells you from your footprint what type you need

You'll need to know what type of surface you're going to be training on. Pavement/road will need either Cushioned, Support orControl shoes - they'll have a sole pattern that should point toward the toe). They'll be OK for the gym too for a treadmill.

Off-Road shoes have a different sole pattern to maximise grip and should be avoided as they won't provide the right support.

The best brands are Asics, Adidas, Brooks, Mizuno, New Balance, Reebok & Saucony. Drop sportsshoes an e-mail or ring your local JJB Sports store - they could give you some good advice. Yes, I do work for JJB ;-)
