    Which wide tennis shoe do you wear, and how do you like it? Also if you were to chose a new shoe which one would it be, the same one or a better one for the right price?

    Extra Wide Feet

    If you have extra wide (3E or 4E) there are very few options other than New Balance Products. NB makes excellent shoes, but it would be nice for variety's sake to have more options. The only other shoes I can wear are the 3E size provided by select Wilson shoes, which I usually can't find anyone that stocks my size in that width.

    The Reebok DMX series works well for wide feet. I've worn New Balance, but I think you get more for your money with the Reeboks, and they seem much wider than most other brands.

    I have wide feet but I wear Barricade IV, which is designed for medium-sized feet. I simply wear half size larger than what I normally wear and it still fits like a glove.

    I wear CT 1002 W shoes (2E) and I love them. The only drawbacks I can think of are the price and the color as they don't make the navy ones in 2E anymore.

    yonex 303/304 are fairly wide with a roomy toe box. better comfort than NB shoes, IMO

    NB 1002 shoes are great....

    NB 1002 shoes are way more comfy than my current Barricade V shoes!

    Also there is no issues of breaking the NB 1002s in like the BVs!

    NB 1002s are great if not for the durability.... 60 hrs on a claycourt and the forefoot sole beneath the balls of the feet are like slick tires!

    If my BVs don't work out for me in the end... i'll just go back to the NB 1002s and put up with the durability because u can get 2 for the price of one BVs now lol

    K-swiss Defier Rs is a great shoe for wide feet, and high arches. Very comfortable and stable.

    Definition of Wide feet

    If your foot size is not greater than 1E, than in my opinion you really don't have a wide foot. People who need to wear at least 2E, 3E or 4E sizes actually have wide feet. (I pretty much am relegated to 3E or 4E)

    For comparison purposes, I tried on many of the above recommended shoes during the 2007 holiday season. None of them were wide enough for me. Most notably, the Adidas series of Barricades (I, II and IV). None of them came close to being able to accomodate a wide footed person. Couldn't find a Barricade III in near my size to try out.

    Nike makes the City Court III model in standard width and wide (4E) versions.
    The standard width would accomodate someone with an 1E foot but nothing wider. The wide version is a great shoe for the money.

    I have tried on almost everything else Nike makes and they aren't nearly wide enough.

    Prince T9, Roadster, they're comfortable stable and durable!!! Lasted 8 months! I also recommend "Superfeet Insoles" (Blue for tennis).

    I had the Yonex SHT304-R and and the soles wore out after a few weeks. I tripped twice wearing these shoes, could be me but it never happened with any other shoe.

    I had the New Balence CT 1002 W and they lasted 3 months. It also made my calves sore, not sure why.

    I have a wide foot (4e+) and have tried all of the New Balence models. They fit okay, but are not my favorite shoes. In particular, I do not like the way they are built like a running shoe with a high heel and a lower toe box. I feel that it makes me slower side to side and backwards. My favorite is the 1002, and I bought a bunch on clearance right now. Unfortunately, I feel that the midsole flattens out too quickly, and requires me to change these shoes often.

    My favorite shoe is the Price Viper 4, high, which is really wide in the toe box. I buy a full size up for extra width, and lace tights. The shoe lasts forever.

    wide feet

    Other than the Prince Viper are there any other shoes that have a wide toe box and a narrow heel. I use diadora shoes right now and they are o.k. but wanted to see if there is anything better out there. I like the diadoras because they are light. Don't like New Balance shoes because they just don't seem to fit my feet that well. Any suggestions?

    You might try the Prince T9 Roaster, so far they work the best for me. Which Diadors models have you tried?

    Yes, they are. the leather is the softest out of the bunch and my feet move around more in those than in any of the others. Wish the cushioning was better. I did have plantars at the time and my knees were still sore after the match. Not so much with the yonex.

    I heard the Viper had a large toe box too.
