Shoes that don't cut across toe joints and don't look like they belong to a granny

To be fair, my granny had great taste in shoes, but I'm sure you know what I mean. I need a pair of ballet flats or a similar low heeled, smart shoes for work, but here's the crunch - I can't wear anything that cuts across my big toe joint because of bunions (so that will be every pair of shoes in the shops), or rubs on my outer toe bunion (is that even a thing?!) and totally flat shoes kill my arches, so it needs some support. Ideally in navy.

Every pair of shoes I look at seems to cut right across the toe joint. I'm beginning to think that the shoe industry are in cahoots with podiatrists. hmm

All of you with similarly challenged feet - tell me where I can find shoes that don't cut into my bunions but look vaguely attractive <shuffles off in comfortable slippers>

Are there any other bunion sufferers out there?

I'm a fellow sufferer but don't have any answers for you sadly. 😞
I have to get wide fit shoes, but it's hard to find non-granny ones. Try M&S, next, h&m and Evans - they all have wide-fit ranges.

Clarke wide fit, try the Kendra - its very comfortable but looks great.
On sale at the moment too!

Thanks all. Not sure I'm a wide fit, but will try some.

I like the look of the Kendra, does it cut across the big toe joint though?
