my feet hate socks and shoes

My feet get very hot when I wear socks and shoes. After I wear socks and shoes for a few minutes, they feel very uncomfortable mainly in the toe area. I have plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, bunions, hammer toes and plantar fat pad atrophy. I have custom orthotics from the doctor. I wear size approximately 10 or 10.5. Finding those sizes for women are hard and finding larger is even harder. I am trying to find closed shoes that I can wear. I see shoes online that are supposed to have a broad toe box but I can’t find shoes like that in shoe stores. I would prefer to try shoes on so that I don’t have to order them and then send them back. Any suggestions for shoes for feet like mine?

    my feet feel so hot when I wear shoes & socks. They feel like they are going to burst into flames.

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Based on the specification with your foot type I would recommend a shoe store that carries various wellness shoes such as Aetrex. Stores like this will carry some of the most accommodating shoes on the market and will allow you to try them all on.

    Buying shoes online can be very difficult, however if you find a brand that you like and that works with your foot then you can begin to buy that same shoe online.

    Please check out to find a store near you with their products.

    I hope this helps!
