I have a size 5.5 wide, possibly extra wide foot. I also have hardly any arches on my feet, a skinny heel and a high instep. Any thoughts on where I can find shoes that fit?
Mary Jane style shoes are your new BFF, Best Feet Friend! There are lots of styles and heel heights. You want a shoe that will stay on your feet.
I also suggest you try on size 5WW shoes. You may be buying shoes too long just to get the width your feet need. With a narrow heel, this will make your feet more likely to slip out of the heel.
