What are the lighter tennis shoes for wide feet?

I have bought Nike Vapor Cage that're super light but a bit tight; Babolat very comfortable but not safe for high performance. Then, Adidas Barricade that're too heavy but comfortable and safely maneuverable. So, what wide feet tennis shoes are light, comfortable and up for heavy action on court?

Mizuno Wave Exceed 4 is pretty light and comfy and doable for the wide of foot. Should try them on if you can.

Adidas SoleMatch Bounce are relatively wide and on the lighter side of midweight shoes. They have more lateral support than Babolat SFX3s and a wider forefoot outsole which makes them more stable in hard lateral stops or slides.

I like Mizuno Wave Exceed Tour and K Swiss Hypercourt Supremes. If you are hard on shoes the Mizuno are slightly better. The K Swiss I enjoy slightly more. Conditioned to have light feet so I am gentle with shoes.

Does anyone have any experience witth the Wilson Kaos Swift or Kaos 3.0 SFT shoes?
I looked at a pair in my local store and they seemed pretty light weight.

Mizuno Wave exceed is a great option. If your foot is a 4E then go with the SL version, it is even wider.

I like this choice as they seem quite close to the Barricades in sense of style/shape. But K Swiss seems outrageously expensive on mainland China. The online shops have the shoes at 30%-40% overpriced. I'll see to the Amazon.com.cn that's offered me some reasonable choices of products from abroad.

shoes seem over priced in general Amazon had them for 700ish yen or about 110 dollars which is reasonable. 119 US here lately.

I was pretty happy with the Yonex Sonicage Wide. They are very light, roomy, and supportive enough with lock lacing (uppers were a little too flexible for me, so I chose to lock lace). The only caveats, as with any lightweight shoe, is I smoothed out the toe guard and outsole pretty quickly (durability not so great...I wouldn't recommend lightweight shoes in general if you're on a budget), and while they weren't uncomfortable, the cushioning is minimal.

Mizuno Wave exceed is a great option. If your foot is a 4E then go with the SL version, it is even wider.

I train in Adidas Solecourt Boost and play matches in Mizuno Wave Exceed 4s (MWE4).

The MWE4 is VERY snug compared to the Adidas shoe. I don't actually mind that for matchplay, but if your foot is truly wide, then they may be too narrow.

The MWE1 was wider than the 4s. 2s and 3s I couldn't use, they weren't really wide at all.

I've never seen the SL verion for sale here in Australia and didn't know they existed. Might consider imporing a pair to try. Thanks!

Im a big fan of diadora lately. The toe box seems to be the most comfortable for my wider foot. Although I haven't tried it, it might be worth it to try the speed competition.

Ubersonic 4 (y)

I have wide feet and a high arch but these are great. Snug but not too tight, needed a little break-in period though

The K-Swiss Hypercourt are also great but feel like "way more shoe"

Ubersonic 4s are NOT meant for wide feet.

I'm currently using Solecourt Boost which are plenty wide but on the heavy side. I'm also looking for a lighter wide shoe. Waiting for my local shop to get GR8 wide back in stock to try on.

I'm curious if the new Barricades will be offered in a wide like previous models were and how heavy that shoe would be.
