    Are there any wide tennis shoes with thick insoles on the market? I need a wide shoe, and thicker insoles allow me to replace them with custom insoles without taking up too much space in the shoe. Any models fit the description?

    I have wide feet and buy New Balance shoes in 4E width. Don't seem to have any problems finding insoles that fit well in them.

    I have 2E feet and I use the New Balance MC 1187(2E model).
    It's wide and has enough space to put custom insoles in (I use custom insoles) and the support of the shoe is very good IMO, although the out sole is not very durable.

    Also here is the link of the review of the shoe from TW

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks guys. I was a little vague in my OP. Aside from custom insoles, I need additional height in the heel. A thick insole allows me to add that height inside the show without my heel getting too high in relation to the heel counter. Some shoes come with ridiculously thick insoles. I'm looking for that. :)

    Thanks Lukhas! From this comment, sounds just like what I'm looking for:

    Not good for orthotics because when I remove the insert, which is extra thick, my orthotics are thinner so ends up there is too much height in the toe box. Seems like a high quality shoe, so If you do not use orthotics then you should try this shoe.

    SFX user here... they are very wide and even w/ the stock insoles and 3/4 length Dr Scholl inserts, they are still plenty roomy. You prob can fit the orthotics on top for ultimate comfort.
