achilles tendonitis

My friend has been told (by a national chain) that motion control shoes can cause achilles tendonitis and that they should switch to a neutral shoe with a cushioned insole?

I don't know what sort of foot they have, but if we presume the initial advice (from a local running shop) to get motion control shoe suggests a bit of pronation, wouldn't a neutral with cushioned insole do the same? When I was told I over-pronated I had neutral shoes and the osteopath told me to get cushioned insoles until I needed new shoes then get the motion control.

I've never heard of this advice before, hence this querying thread.

Can anyone enlighten me on this?
