So I'm thinking that my walking boots do not
support my feet in the right way for walking on hard, flat surfaces,

Consider some squidgy gel or foam insoles. They make a huge difference to me.

To be honest, I think they're probably not the right shoe for the job:
they're too flexible toe-to-heel and apart from thick rubber soles I
don't think they have any technical cushioning stuff.

I've been looking on some websites following Bill's post and I think
I'll try to get myself down to a large branch of Field & Trek and look
at the trail walking/running shoes.
