A little while back I mentioned the difficulties I've been having with shoes, and Angie mentioned that I might want to try wide shoes. I went to Nordstrom and found that Munro shoes are a dream. I also bought some Josef Seibel sandals.

I tried on the Paul Green Cayenne shoes, but they are not available in a wide, and I could not get my foot all the way into them. I like a number of Paul Green styles, but it seems that they won't work for me because they are not wide enough. The Josef Seibel shoes were not listed as wide, but they fit quite well - though that may have been because they were sandals. I did not try on regular shoes from that brand.

So my question is which brands might not be listed as wide, but tend to fit a wider foot? Birkenstocks fit me in either regular or narrow, for example, and the Josef Seibel sandals fit well, though neither brand is listed as wide. Naturalizer shoes, even those listed as wide, do not fit me. I cannot get my feet into them, and even the shoes listed as wide fit like narrow shoes for me.

I am experimenting with my diet for possible inflammatory responses, but I will update on that separately when I gather more information. In the meantime, any suggestions for shoes that are wide foot friendly would be greatly appreciated!
