    New question here. Size 13 4E shoe flat pedal shoes. ?????????

    Does anyone have a suggestions for a extra wide (4E) flat MTB shoe for platform pedals with pins. I have seached and cannot seem to find any company that makes a wide MTB shoe. Thanks

    I'm not sure if they are an option but I'm an 11 4E and I just gave up and went back to flat bottomed skate shoes.

    I'm a 12 4E and after nothing was fitting, tried the FiveTen Freerider's in size 13 - and they've been great! Not too long, and the width works.

    I have a fairly wide foot in 13us.
    Another thing to look for in a shoe is the last on a it. that's what the shoe is built on and around. You generally get a curved, semi-curved and straight last. Draw a line through the centre of the sole at the heel. See how it runs through the forefoot. If the forefoot is fairly off centre, it is a curved, semi off centre is semi-curved and reasonably straight through is a straight lasted shoe. This can make a difference in how wide a shoe "feels" Also if the toebox section is big, it'll feel wider then a shoe built on the same last with a smaller toebox section.
    Funnily enough I usually wear old offroad running shoes to ride. Not the best on flats, but the best for climbing up some of the steep terrain I can't ride up. Other then that I sometimes used to wear my DC skate shoes before they died.
    I can't really offer advice on MTB specific footwear for flats as I have never bothered with them.

    Size 13 4E shoe flat pedal shoes. ?????????

    After a lot of research I ended up ordering a pair or Merrell Phoenix trek hiking shoes. Very open block tread that should hook up ok with my DMR Vault pins. I guess anything is better than my new balance running shoes have have been using. Thanks everyone for the input. I will update how the Merrells worked out next week.

    Size 13 4E shoe flat pedal shoes. ?????????

    Old thread revival i know.

    I'm also having a hard time finding a pair of shoes to fit my 11.5us 2e width foot. I tried on some 510's today at the local mec, but they seem to fit very narrow and the toe box is too small.

    Any other updates in the mtb shoe market for flat pedal options? Growing very tired of using my old runners and getting my foot bumped off the pegs or out of position on rough terrain.


    Regards

    Steve

    I usually have the same problem with shoes. Ive tried tons on, but only one has fit me so far. It was a Bontrager. I have a buddy that has a bike shop, unfortunately he doesn't sell trek, and cannot get bontragers. I will say this, his Giro Rep was in his store the other day showing us all their new stuff and they have some shoes that come in HV(high volume) style. He said that they are a wider shoe. Also he said that Giro has a 60 day fit guarantee. I ordered me some Terraduro HV in my size. They are clip less, but Giro does make shoes for flats. Hopefully these will fit me! Hope this helps!
