Morton's toe is a very common issue and usually is taken care of by just adjusting the size of the shoe up half a size.
Hope this helps.
Morton's Foot (where your toe next to your big toe is longer than your big toe) is pretty common so you'd think some shoe designers would build for this specifically.
Have you tried Newton?

I have the same problem. I've found the footbox/heel pocket shape of Newtons work pretty well for me. For a minimalist trail runner, I also like the New Balance MT-100's (on the NB RL-3 last) for a snug heel and generous toe box.

In terms of shoe fit, you are going to lose a little bit of the heel snugness you are looking for. Be looking for shoes that really wrap the midfoot well. This is where most heel slip can be averted. Alternative lacing technique may also improve the fit of the shoe in the heel if it is sliding around.
Some shoes in that more neutral category that could be of benefit would be the Saucony Kinvara (be aware that the sizing of this shoe is...well...off a little bit), the Brooks Launch (add a half size to whatever you're running in now), and the New Balance 759 (stick to current sizing).

"It ain't easy being green..."
I had neuroma surgery in 2011 (left) and 2016 (right) and the pain has returned on the left as a stump neuroma. So just getting surgery hasn't fixed the problem permanently for me. I am now attempting to resolve what caused them in the first place and I think that the Hokas were too tight for me.
Calluses on the inside of both feet caused by shoes rubbing should go away if there is no longer any friction. I sincerely hope that the pain goes away as well, as my trip to Ironman Cozumel is already paid for...
