That makes sense. My foot is right on the borderline of regular and wide. I have a pair of Specialized Sport MTB shoes that fit me wonderfully, but I may wear them out this year. The Performance Traverse shoes are fitting me reasonably after a couple hundred miles of breaking in, and some Shimano shoes I bought for cheap from a CL ad are so narrow in the toe box that they hurt.
