I am limited in being able to get out and about
to a retail store. I do almost all of my shopping on-line and have fine tuned the process so that it works for me.
Ex. In ordering shoes, I will usually order two pair when placing an order. One pair in a size 7 and one size in a size 7.5. That way I can have both sizes to try on and compare for fit. I keep the pair with the best fit and return the other.
As for shoes . . .
New Balance is well known for their wide toe box and deep depth. They are a preferred brand for people with diabetic neuropathies and peripheral edema. Many of their operations remain based in the United States. Purchasing New Balance is supporting US-made products.
My new favorite shoe is the AllBird. It is a light-weigh, low profile shoe with soft merino wool as its primary outside covering and inside sole layer. Made in Australia. Stocked and carried by Nordstrom retail stores and Nordstrom in-line. The merino wool stretches and contours to sore feet and bony bunions or hammertoes. A great shoe for people with sensitive neuropathies. I am quite smitten with the AllBird.

I have ordered the AllBird through Nordstrom. about
I also love On-Cloud. This is a Swiss running shoe. As the name implies, the shoe is marketed to be as light as a cloud. And it is. The shoe is a light as a feather to wear. The sole is constructed of small air “pillows” or “clouds.” Thus the name of the shoe, On-Cloud. The shoe has a generous toe box and a lacing system that allows for an individualized fit. Bright, cheery colors. This shoe is a fashion statement of color.
On-Cloud shoes are available at the On-Cloud home web page as well as through Zappos and Amazon. These shoes are a bit more pricy but are high quality in design and materials. about
Last but not least are Merrell’s. I have always found Merrell’s to be kind to my feet. Merrell’s have an array of styles and always have wide widths available in every shoe/style. You need not have a less than attractive shoe with Merrill simply because you need a wider width.
