In brief: A closed one

You would want to avoid open shoes like sandals, clogs, etc.
..You want to wear a stable shoe.

In brief: Supportive

Supportive and protective shoes are best, this includes high tops and lace up shoes.
Hope this was helpful.

In brief: Depends

On what type of injury is causing you to be on crutches.
It is always a good idea to protect the foot/ankle in at least a surgical shoe but knowing the problem would yield a better answer.
