    Clydes Wide Clipless shoes?

    Thinking of going clipless now that the urge to bike is back. Anyone have very wide feet? I am a 10 1/2 - 11 4E and can only wear New Balance shoes in that size (Nike and Reebok in 11 1/2 - 12 for width).

    I did a search and only found one thread in the 50+ forum hoping some clydes can help me out also

    Thanks

    Look at Sidi, they have wide shoes.

    Alternative, Rocket7 shoes

    They are both pricey, but they offer wide and XW widths.

    These are actually nice shoes and don't cost an arm and a leg.

    Sidi has a Mega width which is equal to 2E+. Highly recommended.

    I have 13-4E (sometimes I run 13EEE) feet and found these in size 48, more comfortable than my Doc Martens.
    They work fine with my hybrid (Trek 7.2 FX) using TIME ATAC pedals. I also wear them around the office as they can pass for street shoes.

    Lake makes wide cycling shoes. I use Sidis, but I have tried on Dominators from several different years and found that the fit often changes from year to year.
    I used to use size 46 Mega Dominators. Now I ride 47 regular width Dominators.
    You have to try a bunch of shoes on and see what fits.

    I have 9 EEE feet and the lake wides fit fine (with perhaps a bit of extra width).

    +1 for Specialized. I also have a pair of Sidi road shoes but I prefer the fit of the Specialized. Plus, they were cheaper!

    I have a pair of specialized MTB shoes that run wide and a pair of shimano 151 road shoes that specifically came in a wide size.

    I wear New Balance 12.5 EEEE running shoes and I run Lake Cycling shoes...plenty wide. Sidi's weren't wide enough, never tried Specialized yet.
