What shoes or insoles can I wear to help my feet when I do a lot of walking on city sidewalks?

I’ve started walking to and from work, about seven miles altogether, each day. This is on hard city streets and my feet really feel it. I’ve got some gel insoles in my regular sneakers but it’s not doing enough (most especially, my heels really hurt).
Very specifically (with links if possible!) what shoes or insoles should I be wearing for these walks? I’d rather not pay more than I have to but the health of my feet (and knees and back) is very important to me. Please please be as specific as possible – “walking shoes” or “hiking boots” does not help me but “L.L. Bean hiking boots in this style” really does. I’m a woman who wears shoes around 8.5 or 9 depending on the brand. Cuter shoes would be great but that is really not my priority here; I change as soon as I get to work. Thank you!
