Default Shoes for a beginner?

Greetings all. I am a beginning tennis player (in that I have been playing casually for a few years, but am starting lessons within the week), and I wanted to know if there was some general good advice for buying tennis shoes. I searched this particular forum, but found a lot of threads where folks asked very specific questions dealing with such things as the shape of their feet.

What exactly makes a tennis shoe different than any other athletic footwear? I am certain there must be a difference, but have been unable to find it online. Is there such thing as a "beginner's" shoe such as it is with racquets, or is the same kind of support/performance desirable for all levels of play?

Thanks in advance!
