    looking for clipless shoes for wide foot and tall arch

    Anyone have any luck finding a clipless shoe that is good for a foot with a high arch and wide?

    I have been getting by with a little bigger shoe, but the more long days I do on the bike that some hike a bikes are required, I have some shoe movement and get tired of damaging the back of my heel.

    Thanks

    I think you should consider an insole for a better arch fit. There are some shoes that come in a high volume or wide size, but the insoles are not all that supportive IMO. Giro privateer might be a more reasonably priced option, Sidi would be more expensive. Shimano's HV seems to be the larger shoe on the same sole as the D width shoe. Alternatively, you might find that the right insole in your current shoe works so perhaps try that first.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    My feet expanded about a year ago (apparently somewhat common for folks in their 50s), and I had to buy all new shoes, I ended up with Sidi Mega for mtn, and Lake for my road shoes. In my experience Sidi Mega and Lake Wide are about exactly the same size/fit. Shimano Wide is not nearly as wide as Sidi/Lake (probably halfway between normal and sidi/lake mega/wide). Specialized wide fits similar to Shimano wide (but a Spec 46 is more like a 47 Shimano).
    Specialized makes a good range of footbeds with varying arches for about $30, they have a thing you stand on that tells you which footbed you need, it's not super scientific, but worth a try for a good $30 footbed.
    I think you would be good with Sidi or Lake and a Specialized higher arch footbed.

    Thanks, I'll looking to these. Part of my issue with my arch is not the support, but the shoes are not tall enough. I get a rub spot on the top of my foot where the bone is taller.
