Clearing this up, incase anyone else sees this thread and has similar dimensions.
My feet are not 'narrow'. They measure around D width for their length. The issues I have are first of all the toe geometry; long straight big toe, with sharply angling off smaller toes. Also, and impossible to see from the outline, my feet are relatively low volume, vertically, especially as the top of the foot moves into the ankle. This low volume cause problems with my foot slipping forward in the shoe as the fastening system is not secure enough. I could do it up tighter, but this starts effecting the width of the shoes and pressing my metatarsals together. Overall, it is a pain in the arse (foot).
But yeah, as well as this, there are a few mechanical / injury issues I have which are also doing my head in, so it is fully shoe nightmare time for me. I have made progress though, and like I say, will tell all once I have tested things more. Hopefully anyone else with similar issue(s) can use this to get to the bottom of their problem too.
