I have a deep seated shoe issue. Ever since I was a child, it was impossible to find shoes that fit. Generally my parents would just buy the last shoe tried on and bring me home in tears. Walking just plain hurt. I can usually be accommodated in a sport shoe. (Thank you New Balance.) They frequently come in wide sizes. Good luck finding a wide shoe in a dress shoe.
The few wide shoes that I can find, and Yes, I HAVE tried Nordstrom's, start to get narrow just when I am really getting wide. Oh, yeah. I forgot to say I also have short stubby toes.
Why is it that shoe manufacturers know that we want shoes to fit our wide feet when we WORK out, but want to hurt us when we GO out??
SAS makes wide shoes. Mostly they look like nurse's shoes. They have a few that look nice-ish and are comfy.
