In brief: Cushioned heel

A shoe with some cushion will provide some "shock absorption" for your knee.

In brief: Best

Supportive shoes you can buy.
Cross trainer tennis shoes are very good.

may want to consider a knee brace.

In brief: Comfortable

Since pain is often a big part of handling osteoarthirits, i would start with comfortable shoes, with good insoles.
If you're having trouble finding something right, see an orthotics specialist, to make foot/knee wear tailored to you.
