I’ve worn nothing but Altra Zero Drop athletic shoes and hiking boots for years. I also have a very wide forefoot and narrow heel so men’s shoes don’t really work for me. I wear the Lone Peak style and have them in regular as well as waterproof and have had the boots as well. They may or may not work for your issues. The “Zero drop” means no heel height - heel is the same level as forefoot. I came to them from wearing a negative heel so did not have a transition period but if someone is used to having heels elevated it may take some time to lengthen the achilles again.
I wear Injinji brand toe socks which helps with toe blisters. I also use Correct Toes toe spacers which has helped strengthen my feet and ankles and prevented recurrence of plantar fasciitis. Take a look at some of the you tube videos from Dr Ray McClanahan if you are interested in the concept.
I generally order the Altras from Zappos as I wear an 11 and no shoe stores here seem to carry above a 10. If you do decide to try them out I’d suggest you order 2 sizes as they run a little small length-wise.
I’ll add that I just got back from a couple of weeks in Yellowstone and noticed a number of women wearing Hokas. I’ve never tried them but it was surprising to notice how many had them on.
