Get shoes fitted: I think it would be worth your time to get shoes fitted at a real running store. Stores like this are usually run by runners and they are active in learning how to fit shoes to your style of gait. This isn't done at stores like dick's sporting goods. Shoes are recommended based on fit/support not style or colors. You could also see a sports med doc, podiatrist or orthopedic doctor for an exam.

You need: To have a biomechanical exam. I would suggest you see a podiatrist that treats runners.
