Why Your Weight Matters 
It's all about how much impact you put on your joints with each foot strike. Body mass index of 26 or higher is a semiarbitrary heaviness cutoff, but generally the more you weigh, the more shoe—extra cushion, lots of support—you need to keep pain and injury at bay. Find your BMI at

Why Arch Type Matters
Your arch type affects how much your feet pronate, or roll, after impact, which is related to how they dissipate shock. If your arch is average, your foot likely has a natural pronation, and you can wear just about any shoe. If you lack an arch, your feet will tend to roll inward more than the ideal amount (overpronate). If your arch is high, your feet may not roll enough (underpronate). To minimize injury, overpronaters need added cushioning and support, while underpronaters should look for shoes with more cushioning but not extra support.
