Favorite hiking shoes?

I need a good pair of hiking shoes. I had my hip replaced a year ago and no way it's time to start hiking again!
I have a shoe problem kind of like a mild flashlight problem, but my budget at the moment is tight. I need to buy once and done for a few years. I have mid weight hiking boots, and I typically wear new balance minimums trail shoes, which are kind of like wearing sturdy socks.... they work best for my feet/knees/hip.
What do you all recommend? What works for you?
I plan on getting back into it with some 3-5 mile not too aggressive trail hikes with my ten year old energetic (understatement) son.
spent a few hours looking at reviews and they are all over the place.
