Depends on foot:
Depending on your foot alignment, a running shoe that is either arch supporting (for people with flatfeet/pronated feet) or neutral arches (for people with high arches) is ideal.
The shoe should support the ankle well and you should feel safe wearing it on all types of terrain. It should be wide enough to accomodate all of your toes.
Minimalist and converse like cloth shoes are less than ideal. ...Read more

When I wear running sneakers or high vamped shoes my feet fall asleep. My shoes are not too tight but my entire foot falls asleep. What causes this.
Squeezing Sneakers: When the entire foot falls asleep this typically is a result of lack of blood flow which in turn starves the nerves and tissues of much needed nutrients and oxygen. When blood flow returns, the nerves awake in a flurry of activity and send mixed messages, hence the tingling. Direct nerve compression gives a local numbness to a specific area. Check for vascular or nerve compression at the ankle. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
