Feet suck. Need good shoes

Been wearing sneakers and running shoes my entire life. My toes aren't too far gone, but they do not look, feel, or move right. Also have a big ass bunion on my left foot.
Any recommendations for good foot-shaped shoe brands or devices to fix my feet?

    I got a pair of Altras that are the widest shoes I've ever owned, very happy with the toe box space because I've always had problems with my pinky toe being squished inwards and causing blisters. My one complaint is that they aren't very durable, at least the model I picked up. I'd say I have about 300 miles on them give or take and they're already showing the type of wear I'd expect at twice the distance.

        was considering a pair for hiking, is the cushioning enough to not hurt your feet on very rocky terrain?

            I already have some vivo barefoot trail fg or whatever they are called for my daily use (and I love them), but I live in the Dolomites so hiking sometimes means climbing up and down pointy rocks for seven hours, I need some decent protection for that man

              idk how you go hiking in those shoes, I wear normal hiking boots and the more those frickers grip my foot the better and more stable I feel

                I don't, I have some other non-barefoot hiking shoes but they are uncomfortable for my wide-ass feet and by the end of the day I'm always in pain

                I’m a fairly heavy guy and I do 6 miles in them multiple times a week in rocky central Texas limestone hills feet feel fine. A few years back everyone was wearing them to thru hike the Appalachian

                Thanks, I'll probably go for them then.
                What about the durability? I've read that it's an issue for some

                I replace them every year and a half or so, they’re pricey so it adds up but I also put 30 miles a week in minimum. Hiked through a flash flood in them about a week ago they hold up well if you put in less miles than that they’ll last longer

      They don't have any size 14s in stock in their entire store.
      Do you have any recommendations for people who aren't manlets?

    Depending on how much you walk daily, I recommend vivobarefoot, using their size guide. Thin sole, but then add inserts to make the transition smoother. Work yourself down to no insert.

    Key is transition, many go out on a run or long walk and bust the feet up.
    My heel tendons are still adjusting to long walks because of the flatter angle.

    You can heelstrike, but know that running barefoot, with heelstrike, forces the joints to do the cushioning, no bueno.

    I also started using toe-socks, since wearing socks alone for hours squished my toes sore.

    All of these shoes are too small.
    No idea why so many people keep buying shoes too small.

    I wear dress shoes to work every day and they are very comfortable, I never have issues.

    Pic related, this is what Tony Gaziano (one of the best bespoke shoemakers in the world) considers the "perfect length".

      Those shoes still confine the toes.

        No they don't, it's a bespoke shoe if there's a pressure point they will adjust it.

          When you put weight on your foot, your toes have a natural tendency to spread out, your whatever dress shoe will not do that, no matter it it's done by some moron or the best shoemaker in the world. Since they all follow the same old moronic narrow convention.

      Absolutely despise these homosexual elf shoes.
      Invariably worn by tiny dick wankers.
      Literally never met someone wearing these that didn't have a superiority/inferiority complex.

        It's a uniform mate.
        If you wear a suit you gotta wear oxfords, other shoes look off with suits and oxfords look off with anything but a suit.
        It'd be like a construction worker showing up to work in loafers.

    Vibram five finger shoes are food shaped try those and also any brand in the "barefoot" shoe category. Comfiest shoes I've ever worn are a pair of Wildling shoes, give those a peek

    Even the foot shaped shoe still leaves room for improvement, but because our small toes have been crippled since our youth, stretching them out now feels more uncomfortable than being in this compromised position.

    I wear these things all year around almost everywhere I go out. It's an Australian thing though.

    I got redwing boots with a wide toe box and there's plenty of room in there. You can also get shoes that are mostly just mesh.
