Shoe sizing for WIDE feet

My wife has 5 and 1/2 wide shoe size. This would be a 36 except for finding women's size in a wide width. How far should we go up to try and get a working shoe? Seems we must order and return if the fit is not right.

The local bike shops don't carry anything down to her size.

I have wide feet as well and am currently wearing a pair of shimano ma80s (I think thats the model) They are mtb shoes and are really comfortable. I ordered a pair of Lake shoes in the wide size and find that they are to narrow. Good luck!

There have been other queries about wide shoes. One is Road shoes for my W-I-D-E feet. This was discussing men's shoes, rather than women's, but should be helpful, and she can always use an insert if the heel is too wide.
