I hired the services of a Shoe Repair Equipment Owning guy who let me behind the counter..
and together we made the perfect touring shoes for me.
Out of a less than great as it was pair of cycling shoes . Diadora.. were for pre SPD toeclip cyclo cross , last of an era..
Wide hour glass slot in the shoe sole , width made it stable , curves made it angle adjust.
Loose fit and supportive insole made them comfortable..
[& conventional shoe repair materials made them repairable , mid tour]
good luck with the shopping only solutions .. that seem typical answers on this site.
(Also bought a SiDi and Carnac Touring shoe while they were available , 15 years ago, another end of an era buy )
BTW Kneesavers are something to put uour pedals further from the crank arms ..
I used those, with insulated shoe covers , on my Irish and Scottish West coast tours
