    I need help.

    My feet are strange:

    Ankle small, forefoot wide with big toe and little toe almost the same length.

    My instep is very high, made worse because I have high arch and need custom orthos.

    Basically, wide width shoes tend to be too lose for my ankles. I need to wear ankle straps but feel more comfortable (safer) wearing regular width shoes.

    I bought 8 pairs to Reebok pumps years ago and am down to my last two pairs.

    Ascis Gel 3, rubs the outside of my big toe. Addidas, the tip of my little toe.
    Nike, forget about it.

    Anybody got tips for me. What I'm looking for is a boxy shoe. Common fit issues are no room on side or front of either big toe or little toe. Other issue is shoes with such low instep that I can't even put the shoes on.

    Thanks

    Those are racquetball shoes!!

    Actually, I played rball also and head and prince (ektelon or any rball shoes fit be perfectly. That's the strange thing, rball shoes are all regular shape and I have no difficulty wearing them. Volleyball shoes and basketball shoes are also very easy for me but tennis is so difficult.

    Thanks, I'll look again at Prince. bought a lower end Prince shoes years ago to walk around and wasn't impressed with them but they did fit me so I'll try them again.

    The Vipers are supposedly for tennis, sold by TW. Glad Prince still has an NFS shoe with a wide, high toebox. No more hammertoes!
