Wide cycling shoes

I wear a size 8 EE shoe. Where can I get a wide cycling shoe at a reasonable price? I would prefer an lace up shoe also so I can adj for a high instep also.

Lake makes regular and wide cycling shoes. Lace-up will be mountain bike shoe style.

I have big wide feet (size 13 EEEE in Septic sizing) and find Specialized shoes fit me really well.

Regardless of what shoes you decide on, I suggest getting a set of Superfeet insoles. Factory shoe insoles are "usually" garbage. If you are buying yours shoes at your lbs, get insoles first so that you can try shoes with them in. I know a couple of people that wear mt. style lace up shoes on the rd.

Thanks guys. And yes I guess I should have added that I prefer the mountain bike style of shoe, as I ride a recumbent.

Shimano Sandals , width becomes a strap adjustment then..
adjusts for sock thickness too
heel strap holds foot well on Recumbents, so foot wont get sucked under.

I just got a pair of Specialized shoes -wide sized- and with something called a "BOA" lacing system that is WAY cool. I inheirited a really, really high instep from the Native American side of my family and made due with cycling shoes that "kinda-sorta" fit, until now.. These fit my oddball feet just as good as my Nike N-7 sneakers (a shoe Nike markets to Native Americans) do. Mine are a road shoe, though... Not mountain.

Sidi makes the 'Mega' width. I have D width shoes and I sent my Mega width shoes back because they felt to loose and sloppy. I love my two pairs of Sidi shoes as much as I love any of my bikes. THey are usually more expensive than a lot of competing brands, but I have never had any shoe (cycling or otherwise) so comfortable as my Sidis.

I wear 4E and found the Lake shoes to be adequately wide. They're really a 2E width and should work well for you.

I have wide feet and Bontragers do well for me. Actually they are even a bit too wide, unbelievably!

+1 for the Superfeet. They come in a range of sizes and widths, and the front can be trimmed a little if needed. They're the best insoles I've ever used.

I'm a 10.5 5E and the Sidi Mega width seem like one of the few shoes that may work for me, but at EE you should have more options.

Now, for anyone who thinks there's just no way to find clipless that will fit them, there is always a way:
