    Newby shoe question

    Can any of the ladies recommend a wider shoe. My wife has "Fred Flintstone" feet. I would like to point her in the right direction as far as a shoe that will work for her. As her mileage increases, I expect the trail running shoes she is using will start to give her fits. She has not given any thought to clipless yet, but may with a few more miles under her belt. BTW - she can kick my butt up any hill.

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany. Just ordered a 2015 Cannondale Supersix EVO 105 to replace my "destroyed" CAAD 10 2.

    Many of the Lake cycling shoes come in wider widths.

    Carnac and Northwave tend to have wider toe boxes on their shoes. I usually wear EE, but my Specialized Comp Carbon shoes fit really nicely.
