    gel Dedicates but they have bad durability. Also Gel Games but I would recommend New Balance.

    Nike and wide feet don't mix. As the poster above me said, look for New Balance shoes. I have to get 4E wide for my hobbit feet.

    A buddy of mine who has 4E feet switched to NB from K-Swiss and loves them. Says it's the best shoe he's ever had.

    I like the Kswiss Bigshots and the Asics for wide feet. I currently use the Asics GR3s and they fit me perfectly.

    Vapor 9s are your only real wide-foot candidate. Really like them, and they were the first Nikes I was able to wear. Recently discovered I like the Gel Resolution 4s a little more, though. New Balance 851s also fantastic if looking for a very light, minimalist shoe.

    Why would you have asics for wide feet, if there are so many other shoes for wide feet available?

    I used the Asics gel 2/3, Vapor 5, Vapor 9, Bigshot, New balance 1005, 1187...Adidas Barricade 3 & 5, Yonex 307, 305, 304 ...Out of the bunch


    For my wide, flat foot which require moderate stability.
    The New Balance 1187 is the best of the bunch. My backup is the Yonex 304. These feel more stable and enough cushion for my feet.

    I have super wide feet. About as wide as a soda can is tall. Even NewBalance 4Es are a little too narrow for me.

    I have fairly wide feet. The Asics GR3s (4 pairs) and GR4s (1 pair) are fine for wide feet. It's shoes like Adi Barricades and Nike CBs that you need to avoid.

    Unless your feet are like Donald Duck you should be fine with Asics.

    My feet are short and wide, with a high arch and a narrow heel. I know, yikes! The last time I bought a pair of tennis shoes I really liked they were Reeboks, back in the 80's.

    Anyway, having worn my NB 804's nearly to the cushion insert, so far, my favorite replacement shoe is the Prince T22. I've heard the T24's have more cushion in the forefoot. But, I haven't seen them in the stores yet.

    Prince T22, Babolat Propulse 3, and Nike 2k11 are good shoes for wide feet.

    No chance. The fit of the upper is fine but the 'sole' / base platform is very narrow, particularly on the inner arch - so if you have wide feet its almost like you're standing on ice skates.

    +1 for the shoe as well as the recommendation about the size.

    +1 for T22's,...just bought my second pair,....great for wide feet, ample toe box, very stable and durable and well cushioned. Only drawback is slightly heavy.

    Hi, I have very wide front part of feet and best fit for me are Nike vapor tour 6, but I gained alot of weight and their cushioning destroys my knees. Can anyone recommend me shoe with vapor tour fit and with big cushioning under heels? Thanks.

    Do you mean Vapor 8's? I found the 9's to be narrower than the 8's- so stocked up on the 8's.
