I'm seeking some advice on shoe shopping, and thought there couldn't be a better source than this. I've always had rather fussy feet, but in the last few years I've developed both inflammatory and osteo arthritis in both. It's at the juncture of toes and feet, and definitely precludes heels any higher than about an inch. Pointy toes are also a no-no.

Like many women, my heels are significantly narrower than the front of my feet. If I fit for length (US 9.5), the heels are invariably too wide and I end up feeling like I'm wearing flip flops. Lace-ups are better, but I sometimes want something a bit more dressy for work wear. Can anyone suggest a brand that might work, for comfortable flats or minimal heels that could work with dresses as well as trousers?
