I just read your SP10 Questionaire, and it appears we have very similar feet. Mine to are short and wide. The arches aren't so high, but I have a very high instep. Mine measure 9.5 length, 9.5 width at the base of the toes and 9.5 over the instep. Oh, and did I mention that I can NEVER find nice dainty, strappy, girly shoes to fit? I really dislike my feet. :-(
