    wide bicycle shoes

    I am about done with my Pearl Izumi bike shoes, and they are a little narrow for my foot.

    Does anyone have a good shoe that works well with wide feet? I bought these and they were suppose to stretch out a little, but not enough for me. I haven't seen any "Wide" bicycle shoes at any of the LBS' and I wear a 12 or 13 US shoe depending upon the brand. I guess I will have to look at the online shops for wider sizes.


    Any help???

    Sidi Dominator Megas...pricey, but worth it.
    Sandals are another option.

    Any of the Sidi Megas as already mentioned. I own a pair of Sidi Zetas in the mega width that I really like, but only after I put Specialized insoles in them.

    I also have a pair of Specialized Comp MTN shoes that have a very roomy toe box and fit my duck feet just fine.

    I called Lake shoes the other day asking about their wide shoes, and the sales guy told me their wide shoes are a true EE width. When I get around to clipless pedals in the fall I will be trying out the Lake MX190 shoe, since my size 12's are midway between a D and EE.

    I never learned to ride a bike. It is my deepest shame.

    The Sidi megas are wide enough for just about anybody. I have wide feet (not freakishly wide, but wide enough), and I had to send back the Sidi Genius Megas I ordered and get the regular width - the mega width was too wide for me.

    I have a pair of wide lake shoes which fit well for my wide (EEE) high arch feet.

    Do any of you order on-line?

    I don't have an LBS with any "wide" shoes, and the closest LBS to me is an hour away, and not open when I have free time.

    I ordered the lake shoes online. They will take returns so long as the tags are attached and the cleats have not been installed.

    I actualy *just* got a pair of shimano Spd-sl shoes. I usually have to go overboard on the shoe length to overcome my width issues. I actually was able to pick these up in 47's instead of the usual 48+ They could use a slightly more comfortable insole though I think.

    Oddly enough, these were $100 while theonly Sidi's at REI were $160 and they seem lighter too!
    Proudly wearing kit that doesn't match my frame color (or itself) since 2006.

    Specialized tend to run a bit wide. The Sidi's that I just bought are fine in the regular size. I wear at 12 to 13 wide--not really, really wide but still I tend to be wider than normal. I would think the Mega's would fit most wide feet.

    I use sidi dominator in mega and they fit my 45/EEE feet. I chose the "mountain" shoes
    so I didn't have to walk too funny when I got off the bike.
    Do SIDI Dominator 6 leave a carbon foot print?

    I have a pair of Northwaves. I wear a size 11E or so. Very comfortable and I think I could have a wider foot and still be comfortable.
