    Did a search but didn't find anything.

    I have ultra-wide feet. Well, foot, that is. My L5 nerve was cut and what happens is that the tendons and stuff holding up your foot kinda let go and the foot widens significantly. I had slightly-wide feet to begin with and very high arches, but with the nerve damage I need a 4E on my left foot. I'm too cheap to buy different sizes for my left and right, so I just buy 4Es. The only shoes I've found are cheap cross-trainers - NB and one model of Adidas and one model of Nike - are cheap, but they wear out quickly and I don't think they have good tennis soles.

    So, anyone know of a good tennis shoe that comes in 4E width? Thanks.

    NB makes some good 4E tennis shoes. I buy the cheapest version, but I used to get the high end ones that were very comfortable. They would also last about 6 months of playing 5 times a week before the tread started getting slippery on the clay.

    I have a friend that also needs 4E and only NB shoes appear to be wide enough. He uses the CT series which are unfortunately not that durable.

    Isn't Nike Air Max CB 1.2 offers 4E? Although it's not very comfortable in the heels...

    wide feet - NB are garbage

    I too have wide(4E) feet, and used to buy whatever the latest top NB shoe was. The fit was great, but the damn shoes (usually the uppers) fall apart in no time. I switched to Adidas Barricade V (wearing my 5th pair now) and am happy with the fit and performance. Not as wide as 4E, but the most room in the toe box I have found in a durable shoe. I don't understand why the major manufacturers would not make at least one decent shoe available in a wide size. There have to be more of us suffering out there....
