is new balence the only shoe co. to offer EE wide shoes? my feets is way to big for normal width?
yes, I tried on a pair of 304 and seem wide.'qcumber said:The Yonex SHT 304 are reallly wide. I can't usually wear adidias or nike & also have a shoe stretcher that maxes out before most shoes get comfortable but the Yonex's fit me well.
I emailed a question similar to this to TW customer service, and they responded in less than 24 hours. Also, most of the TW descriptions of shoes include comments on width. When it says it fits medium width, then it is pretty much D. If wide, then 2E.edgy said:bringin back this topic....I have black a3 accelerates also, I have pretty wide feet and these shoes are a bit too snug. I like the shoe though. How are the Nike Vapors widthwise? how does NB sizing compare to adidas in tennis shoes also?
K-Swiss? Not sure about them, new balance may be the only way.Hi it's 2020 now and I'm still looking for 4E size tennis shoes and it seems New Balance is the only brand carrying it and even their shoes aren't the most fit for my Asian feet. Any other alternatives?

I've used the Hypercourt Express line for years and they're good for me. I'm not sure I'm at a 4E in NB, usually I do 2E. I do have a pair of very roomy 4E NB walking shoes (were on clearance, gave it a go).K-Swiss? Not sure about them, new balance may be the only way.
Are you referring to the SoleCourt Boost? The SoleMatch Bounce made the list.Hi Michelle,
I am surprised to see Sole Court Bounce (SCB) not in the list. I have tried a bunch in the list and finally settled with SCB. They are as wide as 2E shoes and are one of the most comfy shoes I have tried. Any reasons to not include them in the list?
If you ever need playtesters for XXW shoes, I'm your guy. My guess is that XXW is niche or else all the shoe companies would be better at his market. The market is a lot bigger in running because it's very hard to find XW and XXW shoes and I read a lot of the reviews and there are lots of people that use NB XW and XXW shoes for jobs where they stand a lot.Are you referring to the SoleCourt Boost? The SoleMatch Bounce made the list.
Our list simply reflects the shoes we feel performed best in those categories, and we just preferred the performance of the SoleMatch Bounce over the Boost!
Hope that makes sense!
Ever try Altras?The New Balance 857 V2 Cross-Trainers arrived and I laced them up and put them on. I ordered 11.5 6E and they fit. I have not had a pair of shoes for tennis that fit since 2006 or 2007. They were always tight in the toes and then the leather pushed out after wearing them for a few weeks - the breakin period. These fit my toes out of the box. But they don't allow wiggle-room so they fit and that's about it. But I'll take it as it's a lot better than being a bit pinched all the time.
These shoes have more of a rounded top than the other shoes I currently have (which will get tossed).
They are all leather so they are on the heavy side and likely will mean that my feet are warmer when playing in the summer.
They are rounded but my 1340s are still wider (they're running shoes).
The sole is on the stiff side. I don't think that these are motion control but I'll find out when I get on the courts. Hopefully in the next week.
No. But the uppers tell you more than the sole. These have the same pinching issue as most other shoes. The NB 1340 and 857 doesn't start the small toes falloff until the right side of the right side of the shoelaces to be able to handle long middle toes. I went to Altra's website and didn't see a 6E option.Ever try Altras?
I second this. I have tried about 7-8 shoes in the last two years and Sole court Boost are the most comfortable for me. I have medium to wide feet and they are perfect. I bought about 5 pairs whenever deals showed up after I tried them for 3-4 monthsAdidas solecourt boost are the widest I've ever worn. Too wide for me but I wear them anyway since they're so comfortable.
Same here. Don't want to go 1/2 size up cuz that make won't work playing tennis. The NB 1006 4E has that problem.New Balance makes shoes with two different lasts. The SL-2 has the wide toebox while the SL-1 has the narrow toebox. So you may get a 2E or 4E but you may feel pinched with your smaller toes because there's less room. Before 2007-2009, their tennis shoes and cross-trainers were wider in the toebox and then it got narrower. I saw this in their running shoes as well.
I usually wear 1080s for running and they pinch a bit but they are usable. But they have the 1340 model which has a rounded instead of pinched toebox and those are very comfortable. They also come in 6E and I have a pair of those that I haven't opened yet.
I have not found a solution for tennis though where the area for the smaller toes is cut off diagonally. I would love to use my 1340s for tennis but they would not hold up - running shoes have a lot of mesh which wouldn't hold up to tennis. I do wish that New Balance would just make one model of their tennis shoes with the SL-2 last.
So maybe going up a half-size or a full-size might work. I've looked at cross-trainers and they have the same issue. I may try basketball shoes at some point. At least NB has 4E. Also running shoes don't work on hard courts. Sorry.
Yes, they a perfect with enough room to put thick socks on (Adidas Parley Crew socks).Adidas solecourt boost are the widest I've ever worn. Too wide for me but I wear them anyway since they're so comfortable.
