I can't tell you of any type of shoes that have worked for me. As a kid I wore sneakers/runners most of the time that I wasn't in school and then I wore penny loafers. The loafers were pretty difficult at first but once I had then worn in they would be fine.
When I'm shopping for shoes I always pay attention to that "wrinkle" just above the toes when you flex your feet. Because that "wrinkle" bends in it causes me the most problems. I also run my hand into the shoe to check for large seams or ridges that would cause pain.
I try to use Aquaphor sparingly due to other issues but I do use it on my feet.
