Widest flat pedal available?

I have a Soma Pescadero touring bike that fits me well and is exceptionally comfortable to ride. Due to my need to ride it with a variety of shoes, I need a wide surface flat pedal. What can be suggested ?

Widest pedal that I have experience with is the MKS 3000R. The gripping portion is about 3.5" wide. I like this pedal because it relies on rubber for the grip, rather than pins that bite into the shoe. Also like it because it's cup-n-cone-serviceable. Spins great, even right out of the box.

I'm fairly satisfied with these $25 pedals. They're 4 7/8" from the crank arm to the edge of the pedal.

i'd suggest researching the products on the WELLGO website.
hundreds of models, many of which appear rebranded
under various labels.

You might try to see if you can find an old pair of Phil Wood pedals on eBay. They are pretty decent flat pedals but do not have "spikes" (which can be a positive or a negative depending on your needs) to help hold the shoe on.

The Sabot Petals by Velo Orange is aprox 100m wide x 100m long. These petals are the same ones I have on my bike which I ride with used tire treads and 550 cords, aka sandals: Sabot Petals
