I am looking for new shoes and I have wide feet. If you have wide feet what shoes are working for you?

I have not seen Sidi for sale on the island, do you know anywhere in Vancouver they carries them?

AM9s have worked for my wide feet - Lake is hit or miss.

Road shoes - Northwave hands down.

Sidis if you have deeper pockets.

Narrow forefoots/ very tapered toe boxes are unfortunately the norm for clipless, with very few exceptions. Usually special order only for wider models.

Megas's fit *amazing*, but Sidi is road/xc focused and IME their shoes tend to be sketchy/fall apart under proper mtb riding.

Giro HV fit (high volume) can be found in stock sometimes, Steed had a pair in my size a few months back when last I was home. The fit is something to be experienced though- Wide forefoot sure, but also wide midfoot and heel. Bit like wearing a bag on your foot. I put up with a couple pairs of these POS's before deciding that anything would fit better.

Northwave used to be wide, but changed their last to mega narrow recently. Bont & Lake both make wide shoes, but the fit is tricky and the sizing charts on their sites are off by about a cm.

Shimano actually makes some "normal" width shoes, may be worth trying to cram your human size foot into one of their offerings.

That, or just go for an unsupportive but wide skate style shoe.

I have a wide toe box. The 510 hellcats fit great, lots of room.

Pretty sure saw them on CRC for cheap.

Giro might be the easiest option to find on the Island. I am going to see of I can find a pair of Giro Terraduro HV shoes

Those are nice I tryed those on but too short. Don't have that stupid step down in front for spikes.

I have a wide forefoot narrow heel & ankle  and 3 pair of specialized xc shoes have worked for me, you would probably need to go to a spesh dealer to try on their shoes

a couple pair of shimano have just been too sloppy in the mid foot & heel

HV Privateers & Terraduros. Maybe with thick winter wool socks they'd work?

Been happily using a pair of Shimano ME500's past 6 months. 

AM9's were slightly too narrow in forefoot for me.

The ME501 looks great. The 44 was too long. Want to try a 43.5 but half sizes are hard to find.

I know Mavic Maxi shoes are intended for wider feet, though haven't tried them yet.

The velcro on my Lakes is getting tired. Be nice to have shoes as tight at the end of a ride as they were at the start.
