looking for a mtb shoe w/wide sizes, anyone know of one?

I'm about to go to clipless pedals, but can't find a shoe to fit me. I'm about a 9 1/2 or a 10, and rather wide. The shoes I found in the store I'd have to go to an 11 1/2 or maybe more to find something wide enough, and I would rather not do that. The guys working in the store were of little help.

Does anyone have a wide one they recommend, and here can I find them? I can't even find one on the nashbar or Performance.

I don't know the name but Nike has one. I was just reading about it earlier in a magazine.

Wow - I've always found Nike's to be very narrow for me.

I'm running the Specialized MTB Comp now. It's a really good show with a very wide toe box. Plenty of room in there for my boat feet!

I think Lake makes them in wide widths.

I found one place to buy Lake on-line. Here: http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...&category=1906

I did find some (sidi) at a shop here, yellow jersey, but the price tag of $189 turned me off. I think I'll order the ones above and hope they fit.

The one I reffered to earlier is called the Nike 101. It was in an issue of Mountain Bike magazine. I found it the other day after I wrote my original response.

Me too. I bought a pair of Nike Cairns a few years ago, when i first put them on i thought i would never wear them again, but after a few rides, they began to fit me pretty well, and now they fit me like a glove, so comfortable.

BUt if you have wide feet, stay away from Nikes.

SIDI make a few models in wide widths. They have a sizing chart on the webpage. Most LBSs carry them. Pretty much the best shoes you can buy also, which is nice. Durable and Comfortable (and pricey, too!)
