My experience was different.
Shoes with more heel lift (reducing elongation of achilles) and shoes with more cushion did not help. What ultimately helped (wrt shoes) were minimalist shoes necessary to support my running form improvement. These went hand in hand because I could not change my old heel strike habits in cushioned, motion control shoes. Asics Gel Bandito racing flats are my main minimalist machines.
When my Achilles problems started, I was already running in very cushioned, very stable motion control shoes (Asics Gel Kayano). I tried other traditional cushioned runnning shoes and orthotics for a couple years.
However, it should be noted again, I did not start to correct my achilles pain as early in the acute phases as ID is properly doing. ... as but one of many possible differences between us ...
ID, how's your cross training going? Keep at your dream. We're counting on you!
Best of luck, ID.
