Find a good shoe store and get personally fitted. I did, and it's the best pair of shoes I've ever owned. Recommended by my podiatrist.

Love my Danskos.  Or sneakers with orthotic inserts (SuperFeet or other over-the-counter).  Also, compression socks will make your legs feel great at the end of the day.

Hoka's are good, but go and get fitted, compressions socks help, make sure you get the 8-10 compression to start with if you are not used to them. Dansko's are pretty good, but they are Europeans sizes that you have to go try on to make sure that they fit well. If money is really tight until you get your first check; try Sketchers with memory foam and really thick soles.
