Help! Need W I D E road shoes....(10 posts)

Help! Need W I D E road shoes....The Flash
Sep 21, 2002 2:52 PM
What's the shoe of choice for people with wide feet? I tried some different brands on today and the best so far were the SIDI Mega's. Anyone know of a different/better shoe for the "foot endowed"?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure how wide your foot is, but carnac legends fit me fine. The other reason I have bought those is they work with Time pedals.
If you have the chance go to your local LBS and try different brands.

Tried the Legends, but they were a little snug. I currently race in TRS-5C's and the toes just narrow to quickly giving me hotspots.....

Hunt for older model Vittoria shoesNiwot

I have a pair from about five or six years ago, they are very wide and much wider than today's Vittoria models. I keep "refurbishing" the shoes by replacing the Velcro straps and the footbeds.

I've looked at a few Vittoria dealers for their older stock. They've all been pretty cooperative, but I haven't been lucky enough yet to find another pair of older Vittorias in my size.

I found them on ebay for around 100 bucks (brand new). The only thing I wish is that they had just 3 straps instead of the ratchet mechanism. I do like the ratchet but it seems like it might not last that long.

try Northwave Evolutions. I've used Legends/Lemonds for 9 seasons and they are, the widest in the ball area and toe box of the Carnac line.

I've not tried the Megas but for the past season have also been using a pair of Evolutions. The are wider in the ball area as well as toe box, than the Legends.

I own a pair of Dominator 2's and a pair of Genius 3's both in Mega size ( I normally wear a EE size shoe) and my SIDI's are the most comfortable shoes I own...well except for maybe an old WELL broken in pair of hiking boots.
