I hope you don't mind this topic. A 62-year old friend is recovering from heart surgery. He is currently walking 2.5 miles daily, mostly on asphalt with short moderate hills. His goal is to work up to 6 miles daily walking at a brisk pace.

He needs to replace some uncomfortable shoes and has asked me for a recommendation. I am inclined to recommend he determine his running style (pronation, neutral) and buy a decent pair of running shoes to fit his style.

What would you recommend? What would be the price range?
