    Anyone got any suggestions on shoes that are good for wide feet? I have a wide foot and pretty much nothing Nike fits. Does anyone know of any Adidas models that are a bit wider than the Barricades, etc?

    Do you know what the EUR size is for the Yonex SHT 304 in a men's 9.5?

    I know that asics are 43.5 in EUR.

    Go with New Balance 4E, my friend.

    TW offers a "shoe finder," which points out shoes for wide feet. The only Nikes I've discovered that work for wide feet are the Resolves.

    I've tried New Balances. They're almost a gimme, because they're the only shoes that come in different widths. But I've had problems with them (sore Achilles), which I didn't find with other shoes. Wilsons, for instance or Diadoras, or the Nike Resolves. So, size isn't everything.

    Reebok Upset DMX and 3D Premiere Pro both fit my wide foot nicely. Botn are currently onsale at TW. FYI I am a 2e in New Balance sizing.

    I have a pretty wide foot and have had success with the following:

    Yonex SHT 304 (best recent shoe for wide feet, imo)

    Nike Air Resolve Plus (ok, but were hot, unventilated, and a bit heavy. good cushioning though)

    New Balance CT1002. (These were the worst of the lot. Will never buy NB again)

    Craig, I too have played with the Resolve for a couple of years now and I love them. I actually am looking at the 3 pairs that I rotate.

    go with New Balance or Prince... most of Prince's line make their sneaks with a more squarish front, helps with wide feet! Plus the lengths for Prince is good.

    i have wide feet and went with the BIV, bought a half size big and wear an extra sock, still a bit tight, but it's hard to beat the BIV performance!!!

    Most of the shoes brands listed are not for wide feet. Some brands may state they have 4E shoes but they are not. Wilson's idea of a 4E is New Balances idea of a 2E shoe.

    New Balance is your brand if you have wide feet I wear size 11 1/2, 4E. I would prefer a size 5E but NB does have 5E in tennis or other shoes. NB does have 6E in cross trainers and walking shoes.

    I'm using NB 543s at the moment but picked up two
    pairs of MX815BK 11 1/2 4E. These are lightweight cross-trainers and cost $30 a pair at the New Balance Factory Outlet. I picked up a pair of WX601BKs for my daughter too at $25. Nice pair of shoes, in a ladies wide; very soft leather.

    New Balance shoes come in a variety of toe-box sizes and different arch-heights. They have subtle features in shoes designed for specific foot problems too so picking the shoes that they sell can take a little work. I noticed that they had a court shoe with motion control in it which is something that I previous associated with running shoes.
