A shoe has a stiff sole that does not allow the foot to flex easily, especially when new. A tennis type sneaker is very flexible and easy to try. The word shoe means footwear that comes up to and maybe a bit above the ankle. An oxford ends below the ankle. One or the other might be better. You have probably already tried different footwear, but it is finding out exactly why a shoe bothers you and barefoot doesn't.
I will take a photo and show you or possibly a video . You will understand exactly what I mean if you don't mind seeing my foot lol.

I have to wear safety toe boots every day and boots fit my feet better than any shoes out there . They give good ankle support . The problem I have is once my foot applies pressure it spreads out wider than the soul and all the pressure bears down on the arch area .
I've spent a lot of money in boots and insouls over the years . I've started drawing what design boot/shoe I think would work best .
