Hi Munky,Thank you very much for that, Mallaig, it is very useful and sounds right on the mark. My instep is low but I'm not flat footed. And, as you suggest, my heel is narrow but my toes are fairly wide. I am about to order a pair of shoes from Crown and they tell me that they can make them for me on a narrower last. I think I will go for this option. I worry that if I got custom made lasts, they would just encourage me to buy more shoes! Thanks, again, Munky.
If you have a low instep, I suggest trying either a tongue pad or half insole.
Not sure if you used a tongue pad before, something like:

Half insole would work better than full insole if you don't want to squeeze the room in the toe box. I have pinky toe issue so full insole doesn't work for me.
Otherwise, you can try arch support pads.
