In brief: Whatever feels best
For arthritic conditions, a shoe with a cushioned heel and rocker sole such as a running shoe work well.
For unstable ankles, a shoe with a broader base and more ankle support (light weight hiking boot). Ultimately, whatever shoe produces the least amount of pain is a good choice.

In brief: No best
There is no best walking shoe.
You need to try them on and walk around the store to see how they feel. You may want to try a hi-top over the ankle shoe for extra ankle support.
