Hello, Thanks everybody for your help with my earlier post. Now, if I'm going to get a suit, then I should probably also get some shoes too. Does anybody have any suggestions for which brands or types or designs that will carry something extra wide, and where I could find some in Orange County in SoCal. Like everybody else, my two feet are different sizes. So, when I wear a 9, the left foot feels fine but it bothers the right foot. And, when I wear a 9.5, the right foot is okay but now its too big for the left foot. The problem is the right foot, where the pinky toes meet the rest of the body of the foot and a bit further down. That area is abnormally wide, and the shoe is always pinching that area. One salesman said it would stretch in that area, but my shoes never did. I've also tried wide shoes, but they weren't wide in that area. Another salesman said basically tough luck; that's not where the extra width would be. I'm looking for something in black and comfortable because I will need to be on my feet a lot during the day and walking around in a office. It also needs to somewhat conservative, and professional looking. I don't really care about the design, just something comfortable. I tried slip ons, without lace, and they were comfortable, but too big, and it felt like one foot was going to slip out. It would really help if you could list not just the most expensive brand, but also moderately priced brands too. It doesn't need to last a lifetime, just something comfortable that actually fits. I'm so used to painful shoes, I don't even know how shoes should fit anymore when I try them on. Also, I read that some people buy there shoes on ebay used or at thrift shops. This would save me a lot of money, but I'm concerned about how sanitary this is. Can anyone address this, or how they've dealt with this. Thank you so much.
