I just have weird shaped feet, and most shoes hurt me, but I don’t discover it until after I’ve worn them for a while. These are size 12 or so.

Are you asking about sidewall dynamos or hub dynamos? Sidewall dynamos are nice because they're light and fairly easy to install, but the drag is noticeable. I haven't tried the latest ones which are...

Yes, check it out, because if I remember right, the SA 8-speed hub is designed for small-wheeled bikes. All gears are overdrive except for the lowest one so you may need a 30T or so chainring.
