Quick question, what brands of road shoes are known to have wide toe boxes? Do Pearl Izumis have wide toe boxes? Thanks.

as a fellow FFF (Fred Flintstone Foot) I have found PI, Carnac, Northwave, and Diadora to be good options. The Sidi Mega is just supersized all over, and for me was too sloppy in the heel.

I recently purchased a pair of Shimano SH-R214. They are the widest shoes that I've ever worn. Very comfortable.

I sort of agree about the Shimanos. They are wide in the toe box, but they have a fairly shallow arch. If you have wide feet with a combination of high arches, they will be somewhat tight.

I have that bad combo of wide feet, high arch, narrow heel. Most shoes don't fit me.

Some that do, DMT, Shimano (if I go a half size too big,) Same thing for Northwaves (1/2 too big fits) Adidas (not that popular, but the Adistar TT shoe is a great shoe,)most models of Diadoras, and of course the Sidi Megas.

Hope that helps someone out.

Went through hell trying to find wide bike shoes a few months ago. Look seriously at the Lake cx220 Xtreme (wide).

Nashbar has them discounted now for 100 and there is a 20% off coupon code CEM8 good for 2 weeks.

I ordered mine at $120 less 20% and have been very happy.

Careful with the Sidi Megas if your foot is quite wide. The boot is nice and wide but the sole is not and my foot was hanging over the side of the sole and under pressure (like pushing the pedals) I'm sure they would dig into the outside of my feet.

Yes. I have a pair of Vapers and they are quite comfortable, and I almost always have trouble getting fitted into a shoe because of my foot width. good luck.
Northwave, Carnac, and PI are all worth trying on.djg

The Sidi Megas are sort of wide all the way around, but you could certainly give them a try too.
