    Found shoes for my wide feet

    Thought it was time for an upgrade on my Specialized Taho shoes.
    Something carbon fiber.Stiff and light.
    LBS had me try on a pair of the top of the line Specialized units.
    Just a little too tight across the top of my foot when I tightened them.
    helluva shoe.Amazingly light.But the size neccesary to fit my 9.5EEE was an 11.5.

    Took a crap shoot after checking all the reviews I could find and ordered a pair of
    Shimano SH-M225SE in a 44 which transaltes to a 9.7.
    I got lucky.A perfect fit.
    Not quite as light as the Specialized but light enough.
    The carbon fiber sole is plenty stiff.
    After a short spin on the trainer I have to say my foot feels better connected to the pedals,stiffness of the carbon fiber/combined with better fit?,and no pinching my little toe.
    Nice shoes
    Got them from Brands Cyclesand Fitness for 154.95 with S&H included.
    Ordered on Sunday.they shipped on Monday and got here today.
    Good service.

    A tip for those of us with wide feet that I learned working in a sporting goods store. Anywhere that does custom skate or boot fitting will be able to stretch most riding shoes to accommodate your flintstone-esque feet. Shoes with real leather uppers work best.

    When under pressure, your level of performance will sink to your level of preparation.

    Lake

    Lake also makes shoes for those of us with duck feet.

    I bought the road and mountain versions of the 190...first cycling shoes I've had that actually don't pinch my feet and are a lot cheaper than the SIDI Megas We'll see how they hold up over the next season...

    I wanted to try the 225SE Shimano's, but none of the LBS' around me had any I could try on

    I also have the 5e width feet though they got skinnier when I lost some weight but that aside I have always worn the sidi mega's. You pay to play but they fit nicely and you can also fit custom foot beds in them (I use the soles oven heatable ones).

    Let us know how the shimano's endure your flippers. I find that shoes that are wide but not built on a wide last have a tendency to blow out at the sides. My sidis have never blown out. I get about 3 years on a set in southern arizona (rocky rocky rocky trails). Other shoes that fit but weren't wide I was getting about 1 year of riding out of.
