It is funny how "particular" this is. My feet are wide in front - remember, duck feet, wide in front, narrow in back, and I have Josef Seibels that are among the most comfy and supportive ones I've ever had, including "professional" looking ones that I haven't thrown out yet, though alas I highly doubt they can be revived again. They were funky looking Mary Janes with a wide footbox and two straps and buckles, with a chunky bit of a heel that were great for walking (this depends on feet - some people are more comfy with a bit of a thick heel, others not).
Younger, I wore those Clarks sandals with straps and buckles, not very pretty but lasted forever. They are no longer made in the UK and not at all the same quality.
Yep...wore the same ones...and in winter wore the buckle version of the closed toe style. The buckles were always catching on the threads of our lounge and chairs and making the furniture tatty. When it got re-covered we were banned from the lounge room if wearing buckles.

In my younger days I wore a Mary Jane style soft leather ecco shoe...really light. I call them my 'dollies' and still have a brown pair that I refuse to throw away even tho it's impossible to fix the worn down moulded sole...
