To clarify the hem (the pants are not cuffed) is catching in the Achilles/heel area. I am wearing dress shoes but that issue exist from having a wide, flat foot with a narrow heel. I have never had perfect fitting shoes for my feet and unless I go bespoke I probably never will. The pants are HSM (Hart Schaffner Marx) not H&M so the opening is typical of an American Suit. My prior alteration tailor went out of business so I used another.
