In brief: Running shoes

You want very comfortable shoes with support in the arch and cushioning for the continued impact.
It is helpful if they r broken in a bit before you start to help avoid blisters or irritation. Good socks r also important. Kudos to you for the endeavor.

In brief: Not new

Don't go out and buy anew pair and wear them for the first time for the 3 day walk.
A walking shoe or a running shoe would be best. If you can, find a running/walking shoe store near you and get fitted for shoe size wearing well-padded socks. Wear them for at least 2 weeks before your walk.
