Proper shoe fit is so important. I deal with planter fasciitis so my shoe selection is also critical to my enjoyment of hiking.

I would recommend signing up for the virtual outfitting service here and have someone trained and familiar with the products help you select the right pair.

Just know that you may end up having to try a few different brands/styles before finding the ones that fit you.

Good luck!
