In brief: Plantar fasciitis.

The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis: inflammation of a thick band of tissue that helps hold up your arch.
It attaches to your heel bone, and is usually the most painful for the first few steps in the morning, or after sitting a long time and then standing quickly. See your podiatrist to rule out stress fracture or tarsal tunnel syndrome, and to discuss antiinflammatory meds.

In brief: NEED FOR SUPPORT!

Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! there are many possibe reasons (plantar fascitis leaps to mind) that you may have pain in the heels, but try arch supports like spenco polysorb (http://www.
Spenco.Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb) and otc anti-inflammatories (like aleve). If these don't help, see a podiatrist.
