My mistake with the H&M/HSM
I actually also have the wide ball/narrow heel issue but I've never had them catch the hem of my (cuffed or uncuffed) pants. I just eventually tried a variety of brands until I found a shoe maker that makes a D width shoe (to keep the heel snug) but with a wider ball area. However, I don't think getting new shoes is a pragmatic approach to your case.
In your situation, thinking maybe a tailor can make the back him longer so it does not catch? I used to have a tailor that actually did this as his 'standard' hem and not just make the standard cut parallel to the ground. I actually liked it and still do it with my fuller/straight cut suit trousers.
Wish I could be of more help and I hope you resolve it soon. My pant hem catching when I wear boots with speed hooks (have this going on today actually) and I know how annoying it can get.
