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


http://www.rocket7.com/

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.
