I know only one shop that kind of does it but they only have D width shoes. I went through my old shoes just now and all worn on the outside of the heels. The front of the foot seems to be worn evenly. What does that make me?

What are you trying to accomplish? Is your foot swollen and bigger? Sore? Something more comfortable?
All normal shoes feel too tight as my feet are wide. Front half of my foot is wide. Think diving flippers. Currently I have no swelling but sometimes I do get bit of swelling.
What I am trying to accomplish is the following-
a) Have shoes that I can actually wear. Currently I can only wear my super flexible Canvas Converse shoes. If I have Hallux Rigidus then such shoes are causing me more damage.
b) I have an orthopaedic insert which allegedly helps my alleged flat feet. Putting it inside a normal D sized shoes makes it super tight.
c) I am supposed to wear stiff soled trekking shoes. These shoes are again too tight and weigh a TON! I can't see myself wearing them daily let alone in the gym. So my aim is to use X1 Blade to make normal shoes stiff.
d) The shoe will be used for daily use. I am in a creative field so smart shoes are not my priority. In the gym I will use the shoes for step machine (so not any actual impact running) and moderate level weight training. I will also use the shoe for moderate outdoor bicycle riding.
No one locally stocks wide shoes so online is my only option.
