There's always the "old faithful", Mason Shoes. I used to sell them back in the mid 70s. Talked to a man last year who bought a pair from me back then and says he's still wearing them!
Mason Easy-Pay -

Click on the bottom and see all the sizes and widths they have.

Truly, I would think this is a great opportunity for shoe designers. She likes/can afford brand names like Candies/ Mudd/ o. But they stop at a size 10M ( too small in the toes) and jump to an 11M which is too big and fall off. She has tried on about 20 prs. NONE fit. She is actually hoping her feet grow so she can at least be an 11 M , which is hard to find anyhow. GGGrrrrrrr!!!
I wear a 10 1/2 W too. I find that 11M casual shoes fit ok if I wear thick socks. Dress shoes will fit if you insert some of those thick expensive insoles. Depends on the shoe sometimes you might need to add a thin insole too if the first insole doesnt take up enuf room. . If you buy cheap shoes a nice thick insole is a bonus

I dont wear heels any more but when I did I used a full insole and added a 1/2 one for the ball of my foot. All that padding definitly helps your standing stamina..

I went into a shoe store a couple of years ago looking for a pair of "granny boots" - the ankle boots with a heel that lace up. I like them because I have what the salesman called the triple threat. I wear a size 10-11 but 1) wide foot in front 2) narrow heel & 3) high arch. The arch is what really keeps me from being able to wear many things - which is why I want a lace up boot. It is so frustrating to find a pair of shoes that fit the front of my foot but my heel just pops right on out! I am thankful that I have feet and the ability to walk, I just would like to find shoes that are not painful or fugly. Dress shoes are the hardest to find.

I have similar issues.
When I wear orthotics, these problems go away.
But I wore out the one pair I had--they are literally in tatters.
I hate having the heels of my shoes slip 'n slide.
I might get some over-the-counter heel inserts from the drug store.

Dr. Martens has some great shoes right now, too. They even have pumps!

Sofft has great shoes for wide feet. Very comfy but there is a break-in period - be warned.

Yeah, I actually have a pair--the Lotus. But still, straps and all, they have kind of a rugged look, especially with the visible staples on some. Not that I worry too much about it, comfort is my main motivation.

Those Doc Martens are darned cute--however, the site does not give any indication of widths.... Do they run wide?

Nordstroms Rack -- same exact shoes from Nordstroms but 1/2 price or more. Tons of selection for wide and larger-sized feet (i.e., 11,12, etc.). I am on the East Coast so am not sure where other Nordstrom's Racks may be located.
