@MsYankee:  I would go to a local athletic/running shoe store (Feet Fleet or something similar) and have them fit you with a shoe that works best for you.  Then, see if Kohl’s has that shoe in stock.  If not, I’d definitely invest in something they recommend, it can make a huge difference in your comfort level while exercising.  

P.S. I have a really high arch and invested in a very pricey pair of arch supports and feel it was very worthwhile!

I’ve heard amazing things about Vibram FiveFingers (those toe-shoes) helping people with PF. (Never had it but heard wonderful stories.) I was using mine exclusively for quite awhile, they’re mega comfortable. I have extremely high arches, and I love them for that — they help the muscles and bones in your feet become stronger, so you’re really using your feet instead of just yourshoes.

If you have foot problems, you unfortunately should not be buying your shoes at a place like Kohls. You should find a local running store and get professionally fitted. The service is usually free, especially if you buy a pair of shoes. I love Nike Free 3.0, but a minimal shoe like that would porbably not be good for someone with arch issues.

You should probably wear a crosstrainer on the eliptical and a much harder shoe than a running shoe on the spin bike. While spinning, you want to sole of your shoe to be nice and stiff. When you run, you want the sole really flexible.
