People on here in the past recommend superga as being much comfier, but I've not tried them. I've started to wear Nike trainers, for my sins. But they are so comfy. Don't go with a dress and leggings in the same way as good old cons, but look ok with skinny jeans - hope!
I must be the only person with wide feet who gets on with Converse. Maybe because I am a size 9 and have to wear more manly sizes? Anyway, I also have Supergas, but prefer the fit on Cons. But have you seen these Clark's? (Bear with me) I have very similar from last season in silver and love them! Although i normally need a wide fit in Clark's these (and the ones I have) are only available in standard fit, which fits fine in this style.
I had the same problem with converse (and vans) as my feet are very wide. I now have some Adidas gazelles and they are really comfy and don't squash my toes at all, even after a full day of walking. Generally I find suede and leather are better for wide feet as it tends to stretch a bit after a few wears, whereas canvas never seems to stretch at all.
I've also given up with Converse as have wide feet and they rub across my toes. I've recently bought a pair of Rocket Dogs and love them - they're much wider and like wearing slippers. I also like the look of the metallic Supergas so am planning to try a pair of those when I get paid next week.
I'm presuming when you say Converse that you mean Chuck Taylors? I find them horrid and narrow but switched to Converse Jack Purcells a few years ago and they are in a different league for comfort. They have leather padded insoles and a lovely bump toe and are a much better width fitting. A much better quality shoe all around imo. They're slightly more pricey than Chucks but absolutely worth it.
