I also have really skinny ankles which might sound good but they actually make my feet look even bigger by contrast! Since having two children my feet are even more unsightly (see here). Oh the shame.
Buying shoes has always been a problem for me, I find it a singular activity, a sort of conspiracy between me and the sales assistant. They take one look at my feet and instinctively know that I want to be left alone to shoehorn the tiny dainty shoe on my feet without spectators. In the end I usually end up going to Next or M&S and looking in their old lady extra wide range.
I've googled this extensively and the only online shop I can see is http://www.duoboots.com/ who specialise in wide fitting shoes and even show you how to measure your canoes on their website.
What I'm generally looking for in a summer shoe is something open toe (to prevent rubbing) with a slight heel and a structured look, nothing floppy. However if the shoe is too inflexible that also makes them uncomfortable. It also has to be something I can run in (not for fun, to catch suicidal lemming toddlers).
So I've had a look at Duo who currently have a sale on which makes their shoes very reasonably priced.
My two favourites are the Delta and the Leila shoe. I'm not saying they are really glamourous but they are definitely something I could wear every day. The Delta is now £50 and the Leila is now £45.

Although I do love Duo shoes and will be ordering some, this is in fact a sponsored post.
