Wide foot, Sidi Genius Megas or Northwave Evolution ???(9 posts)

Wide foot, Sidi Genius Megas or Northwave Evolution ???Crash
Jun 27, 2001 4:47 PM
I am looking for new road shoes and I have come up with the Megas and the Evolutions as probably the best selection for my wide feet. Does anyone have any experience with these shoes, or recommend another shoe I should try ? If it makes any difference I am planning on going with Look pedals. Thanks !!!

My feet are not that wide, however I had to find a shoe that would accomodate my othotics. The Northwave's fit the bill. I have the first generation Team Fibra. Two velcro staps, plastic soles. They have held up well, excellent quality. The other shoes I tried on (including Sidi) were too narrow, I couldn't even get my foot into the shoe. I'd recommend the Northwaves, however make sure that you try them on. When the time comes, I'll be looking at the Evolutions.
I agree...vram

I have the NW Evolutions--they are an awesome pair of shoes--very light, stiff carbon sole and lots of oomph! I have slightly wide feet and the evolutions fit perfect. The tongue is designed in such a way that it contours to your feet--the shoe is plenty wide so if you have narrow feet the tonge wraps around your foot and you can tighten the straps to get a snug, almost a custom fit. If you have wide feet, you need to tighten the straps less to get the same snug fit.

Its a great shoe for a wide foot. I don't care what Sidi says, those shoes are narrow. The regular ones are really narrow, the megas are normal (not wide). Carnac Legends have a wide toe box. You need to order them 1/2 size small (e.g., I normally wear 45, but wear 44.5 Legends). The other models are not as wide in the toe box.

Any shoe on earth will accept Look cleats. Don't worry about that.

I have a 4eee wide foot and wear a Sidi. I had to go up one size to really fit it for me. The only complaint is, they are hot. These shoe's make my feet sweat. The fit is great. Good winter shoe.

I would suggest trying shoes till you find something that fits well and you like. I use the Sidi Genius Megas simply because they fit my wide feet the best. Most shoes that fit in width were too long. A 46 Mega was a perfect fit and after using them I would be another pair in a minute. The thing I like best about them is how cool your feet are, the way the breath is unbelievable. I tried several different brands and really didn't want to spend the money on the Megas, but glad I did.
