Have you ever had your foot measured on a brannock device by a competent shoe sales person or foot specialist? It sounds like you have a wide foot with a longer heel to ball measurement compared to heel to toe measurement. I have a similar issue in that my heel to toe is 10.5 and heel to ball is around 11.5-12. In this circumstance you need to size for the ball of your foot or else your fee will forever be cramped up in the front of your shoes.
if you get your foot measured make sure they do both measurements.
