There are so many shapes and sizes of feet that shoe manufacturers cannot possibly make shoes for every need. What i would recommend you do is find a shoe that fits your toes and then purchase a gel heel liner that goes into the back of the shoe to help snug the shoe around the heel. You can search online for gel heel liners and you will likely find a company that sells them.N.

Are fine to wear for your over pronation but take them with you for new shoes. A shoe hospital may help alter your current shoes to fit better.
