Re the Yonex I really wanted it to work for me as the construction of the shoe is so solid. i just couldn't get it to fit. maybe an extra half size might help?
Hard to say about the Yonex fit. Your foot may be truly too wide or just not match up with the Yonex last. In my limited experience of trying them on, I thought the latest Vapor was definitely narrower than the Yonex 304.

My feet are just slightly wide up front (probably only an E) with a wide toe-spread. The Yonex simply fit me better than Prince T22s or Viper VIs. Most Nike and Adidas shoes quickly cause foot pain. I haven't found a New Balance last that fits my foot even though they definitely will make wider shoes.

Fuji said his feet are just slightly wide, so I think Yonex are a definite option for him.
