Steel Toe shoe and Big toe pain

I have been having a heck of a time with steel toe shoes. I have 3 pair of shoes now with the last one costing me $250 that I can not wear. I am a large man (330 lbs) with my right foot being very wide. The shoes seem to be ok at first but after about 4 hours the outside of my big toe starts hurting and when I take the shoes off it is very red and sore. The last pair of shoes I got are P.W, minor 9 1/2 5E's. I at a lost of what to do. Is there somebody that makes a large toe cap that has some padding in it? My toe seems to rub against the side of the metal. I have yet to find a pair that has any kind of cushion inside the toe cap.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
