From the Manufacturer
The legendary Shure SM58 vocal microphone is designed for professional vocal use in live performance, sound reinforcement, and studio recording. Its tailored vocal response for sound is a world standard for singing or speech. A highly effective, built-in spherical filter minimizes wind and breath "pop" noise. A unidirectional (cardioid) pickup pattern isolates the main sound source while minimizing unwanted background noise.
Rugged construction, a proven shock-mount system, and a steel mesh grille ensure that even with rough handling, the SM58 will perform consistently, outdoors or indoors.
The Standard for Dynamic Vocal Mics
You'll find multiple SM58s in most any studio or live music venue - no doubt you've heard of them. The SM58's frequency response is tailored for vocals, with brightened midrange and bass rolloff. The uniform cardioid pickup pattern isolates the main sound source and minimizes background noise, which is ideal for vocals, especially in live situations where background noise is substantial.
The microphone's pneumatic shock-mount system cuts down handling noise, making it a great choice for handheld vocals, and the built-in wind/pop filter helps keep things in check.
The dark gray, enamel-painted, die-cast metal case has legendary looks and - paired with the mesh grille - legendary toughness.

Get the version *without* the on/off switch. The person running your soundboard will appreciate never having to deal with not being able to have vocals heard because the singer turned off the microphone, while they are at the soundboard trying to troubleshoot -- and the audience can appreciate that! Better performances come from microphones not having an on/off switch. ;-)
My only advice is to make sure you get it from a reputable seller, because there are a lot of fake Shure mics floating around.
I was using a Shure Sm7b that I borrowed. I was looking to have guests I my podcast but am unable to afford purchasing 3+ $350 mics (Shure SM7b). I tested out a couple mics and this is what I settled on. This mic does the job perfectly. Just make sure to get a windscreen or you will run into some very noisey pops. I run these directly into my Zoom H6 and do not have to run any effects in post except a slight low end roll off. All in all a great podcasting mic for 1/3 the price of the high end stuff.
Anyway, if you want quality and stable good sound there is no way to get it wrong, get SM58. btw.... I personally don't get how one can buy SM58 with the switch option.... it looks ugly and cheap... =P
