Bike shoes without tears?

I love my clipless pedals, but I've had to stop wearing my bike shoes because they hurt my feet -- particularly, it feels like using them puts a lot of pressure on the outsides of my feet down to the little toe, and the inside of my ankle. I think my shoes are probably too tight (I have wide feet). So my questions are:

- any suggestions for picking out shoes that won't hurt?
- any suggestions for local stores that have cycling shoes available in different widths?
- stores that have staff who are knowledgeable about picking out shoes that fit properly and won't hurt?
- do bike shoes really have to be super tight in order to get enough force when pulling up?

Thanks in advance.
