Head tube angle and shoes

Hey guys, couple questions.

1. Does a more relaxed head HT angle make the bike more stabile just because it creates a longer wheelbase or is there more to it than that?

2. Do all vans have the same width at the toes? I bought a pair of vans eras and they are awesome besides the fact that my right foot is is basically deformed and it doesn't fit right in the shoe and hurts after an hour of wear. Is there anything out there that is wider in the toes than vans?

I don't know enough about geometry to answer your first question but for wide shoes, try some DCs. I have a pair of the Notch model and they are really wide throughout the whole shoe.

A mellower headangle also means the steering is less twitchy.
I've got wide feet too, etnies seem to be the only trainers that fit me comfortably. I'd like to try some vans next, but no where here sells the good ones. I've got the jameson something, they've lasted nearly a year and still have plenty of life in them
