    I need a wide toe box with a normal heel box. I've tried many shoes. The shoes that fit the best are the Prince Viper and New Balance 651. KSwiss makes a nice shoe, but they seem too wide in the heel. The Adidas shoes I've worn are usually too narrow in the toe area. I've worn some Wilsons with good luck, but they seem harder to break in.

    I would say neither the Figjam's or the Crossfire's.I say no to the crossfires because they have a high arch and medium forefoot and medium heel.I say no to the Figjam's because they have medium forefoot and wide instep, but a medium heel.There are better shoes out there for just a wide(r) foot like the NB 652's,1001's,Wilson 1000's.700's.Even Prince's QT Scream if your only wide in the forefoot or Nike's Resolve if your only slightly wide and have a high arch.There are still more options, but it depends on where in particular you are wide and what other priorities you want in a shoe(durability,cushion,lacing,support,looks, etc.)

    stay away from figjams, they are medium width-the crossfires are good for people with semi wide feet and low arches-just like me. I wore them until my foot grew too wide for them, and then then somehow my feet fit in the nike air zoom breathe frees. Overall just go with the crossfires
