Possibly, likely, incredibly stupid question about feet
As a background, I'm coming off a stress fracture in my foot, which I *think* is healed enough to run (did it around, or on, Oct 25 at B2B). I also apparently developed a Morton's neuroma at that race, because I thought it'd be a good idea to ride in brand new shoes I had never worn before (Bont's). And, I haven't been on the bike since; combination of new baby, bad foot, running a business, and the holidays. Also laziness. Can't discount laziness. I digress.
Anyway, I'm ready to start doing stuff agin since im starting to find a little bit of available time, and want to avoide making my foot numb. So I know I need to make sure the toe box of my shoes, both running and cycling, are "wide". The problem is, I have no idea what constitutes "wide". I did some googling and all I find is stuff like "shoe x is wide and shoe y is narrow." What the fuck does that mean to me?
So, how does one determine whether a shoe has an wide enough toe box without buying 18 different pairs? I can't find dimensions for any of them, and I sure as shit won't be buying a18 pairs to try out.
