It's immensely important that the shoe fits.
Also consider this: Running or becoming a runner is not a requirement if you want to lose weight. Don't put undue pressure on yourself. Choose workouts which do not cause you pain (except for muscle burn of course). And most importantly, whatever you do, start slowly.
Wishing you much success.
