I have the same problem. Usually, I buy cheaper nice looking shoes like from vintage store, that are easier to break in to shape my foot. Or you find shoes that you like, get the best fit you can and wear them in. I haven't actually found a place that makes nice wide shoes, except for Nine west (which really fits) and payless (just bought cute little heels). Payless won't last too long, but they'll fit while they do, and are really cheap (seven dollar flat, and no one guessed they were from payless). I remember when i was little, the only person who had patience enough to go shopping with me was my dad, and we'd spend hours in the store while I tried to find something that wouldn't hurt me. I'm in the same boat as you are still

feet problems
I have the same problem but worse, short and wide big feet with bunions. I keep two shoe strechers to help me. Right now one pair are in my Christian Louboutin ankle suede boots and the other in my London Sole Ballet flats.
keep trying the designers who make them wider than most. Farragarmo are the worst.

I have bee told that jimmy choo makes all feet look tiny and cute...on the high street, I am not sure what shoe brand, but I would stay away from wedges and pointy shoes

If they're leather...stuffing with wet newspaper can stretch shoes...depends if you wanna risk it as it can leave funny black marks on the inner sole of your shoe

Great call! I use to do just that to break in new hockey skates just I would wear wet gym sox instead of paper. Back on topic, I have a wide foot as well, I know it's not a huge issue for men but I've found buying half a size bigger and having a shoe repair professionally stretch them works best. Worst case I add a thin insole to compensate for the larger size.

I also have quite a wide foot (36 in length but 37 in width). I found this amazing spray on my local shop, that can make the leather more elastic and thus stretch better.

Ferragamo has C and even D width. You can try Soft. It depends on your budget. There are nice walking styles from Hush Puppies, they have about half inch rubber sole that absorbs the shock and makes them very good walking shoes.
