I'm so frustrated with finding shoes!!Why do I get a knee ache from a size 11?

I can wear asics at least,I have to wear mens because a size 10 is too tight for me in a womens and a size a 11 is too big,I always get a knee pain from it.So my only choice is mens shoes but alot of them run wide.I don't know what I'm going to do.Luckily,I do fit into Teva sandals but that's not what I need.

  • I should mention I have a long narrow foot and this makes it extra difficult to find shoes.So far,asics have worked the best for me,I need the Gel heel.I'm getting some custom made arch support insoles soon,so I need new shoes.

  • I've tried all the shoes out there,I'm going to have to settle for a narrow mens shoe and to put to death this frustration.I'm just wondering why I always get a knee ache from size 11?Guess that's how the shoe hurts me.

  • I always have to buy mens sneakers! You are not alone. My foot is smaller than yours. I only need a mens 8, but my foot is wide. Seriously wide. I can't find decent sneakers that fit. I feel your pain!
