    I'm looking for new shoes to replace my NB 1004's which I loved but they just weren't durable enough. I have pretty wide feet, especially at the forefoot with a medium arch, I wore a size 9 2E in the NB's but I usually wear a 10 1/2 to 11. On TW the MV4's only come in a D width so can anyone tell me how they will fit me?

    Thanks in advance

    They're narrow, but not quite as narrow as Nike....
    But I'd say more of a medium width...
    I've worn 2E in New Balance so you should be ok...
    The MV4s are a very nice shoe for the price, pity they're phasing them out...

    Glad to hear that answer. Is there anything strange about the fit that I should know about before I order? I think I'm going to buy a size 11 or I might just order two pairs 11 and 11 1/2 and return one with TW's free return shipping.

    I'm going to need to see a photo of your foot before I can give any useful feedback. The bottom would be the best view.

    Geez your feet are a bit wider and a bit more clubfoot/caveman'ish than mine...
    You don't mind me asking your weight & height?

    What shoes can you try on in your area?
    Personally I would stick with the New Balance since they are working for you, but if you want more durability/possibly a better fit for your wider feet, try perhaps the Prince T22/Barricade 5 or one of the Nike Court Ballistic in the wide versions...

    I think they are very wide, but admittedly, the pair I have is probably half a size too big.

    So how do they fit your foot length-wise, will a half size up make them too long and loose?

    Also, what about the adidas genius, are those wide or no?
