Sounds like one side of the heel and/or ball of the shoe is grinding down and that these are dress shoes are made of a thick leather bottom sole (possibly a wooden heel). Could be numerous factors 1) daily use 2) shuffling feet when when walking 3) weight of person 4) leaning on edge of foot when walking.

I have work shoes that have the outer edges of the heel and ball of the feet worn down to the point where the rubber is gone and angles approx. 30 degrees. I work around 45 hours a week and am constantly on my feet, walking and running to and fro from my van, around town. In my case, I just do lots of running and plant my feet hard, making sharp turns to avoid obstacles and people while also carrying heavy objects.

Might be a good idea to see a foot doctor if the weight distribution of your foot isn't even. Could explain uneven wear on your nice designer dress shoes.
