    So my customized WIDE fit Addidas Barricade Vs are on their last legs. I've been putting off trying to find a new replacement for them because I really liked the Vs. mi Addidas stopped offering a WIDE option so now I'm stuck shoeless!

    Not a big fan of New Balance but probably going to revert there if no one can help with a new suggestion.

    THOUGHTS?

    Thanks,
    Shoeless

    i have pretty wide feet too. I'm usually a 8-8.5 by length. I wore a 9 barricade V;that fit pretty well. The new barricades...not as much...much narrower than the previous version. Try the babolat propulse II and go half a size bigger. I feel the toe box is pretty big and you can go loose with the laces and adjust with the straps.

    Prince shoes are usually wider than most.

    Or you can go up a size.

    True -- my new T22's are nice and roomy in both the toe box and mid-foot. Nike Air Zoom Cross Trainers are wide in the mid-foot. And New Balance has traditionally made actual wide sizes. If the T22's fit, you will be in heaven. :)

    Yeah,...I'd second that suggestion for Prince T22's,....Thats partly why i went went with them,....cuz of their rep for roominess in the toe box,....and comfortably wide. Great shoe overall. :)

    Yonex shoes have a wider than average toe box and are normal size in the heel. Yonex shoes tend to be lightweight and fast, but not extremely durable.

    The Prince T-22 is fairly wide in the toe box, but much heavier than the Yonex. I had a short break-in time with the T-22, but overall consider them durable good shoes.

    Not any more. The 306 is narrower than the Barricade V, about the same as the 6.0 Barricade. The 307 seems to be about the same fit as the 307.

    K-Swiss and Prince are both wide.

    I always found Nike and Addidas to be narrow. Shame because I love their cosmetics.

    Nike Court Ballistec 2.2

    I'm a 10 E/10EEE. I just bought the Nike Court Ballistecs 2.2 which are an EE width. Good looking shoe. Pretty durable so far.

    That's too bad. I'm running out of my stock of 304s. :(

    I usually wear 4E running/tennis shoes. Just bought a pair of the new Nike Vapor Tours since I heard they ran wide. They fit perfect for my wide feet. Even wider than the Babolat Propulse 2 that I was wearing.
