Looking For Wide Mt Bike Shoes (clipless)

Anyone know of any mountain biking shoes that are either made in wide sizes or run wider in the toe box?

What size shoe do you wear? Because I have a pair of cortez mtb shoes that is a size 10 or 45 in Euro size. Toe box is about a 4E width. New in the box.

I have a set of Sidi Dominator 5 Megas. They are in the D width which is good for a 4.5" wide foot. They fit my wider foot nicely.

i went with the cheapy sidi rampa 3, and i have no compaints at this point.

the third strap is nice to have, but it is not worth another hundred or so dollars to get the dominator.

If he wants a SIDI in the Mega (wider size) it might be worth it, additionally, more straps more precise fit.

They were well worth it

I wast willing to plunk down another $100 or more for some SIDI shoes so I got a shoe stretcher at Target for $8 and left it in my Shimano M180s for a day each shoe. problem solved. I also did it to my 661 Nuevos with the same success

I strongly suggest you get Specialized Rockhoppers.
