Did you try shortening your leathers a hole?
I ride on the balls of my feet and don't have any issue with the wide stirrups. But they are not forgiving at all if you aren't able to drop your heel or at least have it level.. which makes me think maybe your leathers are a hole too long.
When you let your leg hang down relaxed, where does your iron hit your leg? Did the wide stirrup hit the same place? I ride at what show people would consider "dressage length", so the bottom of my stirrup hits not too high above the bottom of my sneaker.
