    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 and my latest, a 2015 Cannondale SuperSix EVO carbon

    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.
