Really Wide Shoes

I'd like to try clipless pedals, but I have very little cash and very wide feet. I wear a 10.5 or 11 EEEEE.
Can anyone recommend affordable extra extra wide bike shoes?

How close in can the cleats be set?

Fingers crossed

My feet are 11 EEE, sometimes EEEE and I wear Sidi Mega Genius 5.5. Lake also makes wide cycling shoes. The cleat position is adjustable so you can place them wherever you want.

I second the Sidi Megas. Very well made shoe, but very pricey. They do occasionally go on sale so keep an eye out at places like Performance Bike or Nashbar.

Hmm, not a lot of differing or dissenting opinions. Guess I know what to look for.

Thank you.

Well, I was at Lake shoes on the web and noticed that they also have EE sizes, but I haven't tried them and don't plan to either since I have been using sidi's since 1983 and have always been very happy with the quality.

SPD compatable Sandals are out there too, Shimano's ones are OK.
Touring folks like them as straps adjust for thick or thin socks,
and dry boot liner-socks for wet days.

I wear a 10.5 EEE running shoes and the SIDI genius 5.5 mega works great.

Before I bought the Sidi's, I was looking at Carnac and Lake.

I have been looking at the Sidi Mega sizing in the Genius 5 model. I have one issue though, nobody carries the mega sizing locally. I wear a size 44 Shimano for my MTB shoes. Do you think I need a 44 in the Sidi shoe or do I need to be looking at a 43 since it is wider?

Thanks,

John

the local shops in my area didn't carry mega size either. I don't like to buy without trying on and I tried some on at colorado cyclist's store when visiting colorado springs. So when you travel look at some of the bike shops to see if they carry them in the mega size. You could also get them at online stores like REI or Zappos that have great return policies.

You can also try Bont shoes. These aren't more expensive than Sidi Megas when on sale and are heat-moldable, so you can get them to fit to whatever width your feet are.
