    Shoes for wide feet.

    I need to find an online merchant that sells shoes by size and width. I need EE width platform shoes and all I seem to find are 10 1/2 or 10 1/2D. Is anyone aware of a site I can go to? Thanks in advance.

    I wear 13EE running shoes and my just standard shoe size giros fit me very well. I feel like their strap and rachet system allows for a pretty good range of feet widths.

    By platform shoes, you mean shoes for flats/platforms rather than clips? There aren't many that make such shoes, 5.10, Giro, Shimano and I think you'e stuck with whatever they sell. Adidas Outdoors has one too that I think may run wide, there's a thread on them in here somewhere.

    5.10 Freeriders, but you might want to upsize 1/2 size.

    I have a slightly wide foot, some shoes a normal would work and some I need a wide. The 5.10 freeride was painfully narrow.

    Had LBS order me some Bontrager shoes to try, just havenít been able to get by yet.

    From my experience Giro makes wider shoes than the other big brands. 5.10 does not make wide shoes but they're better than the XC style Shimano shoes.

    Please send Altra an e-mail about making cycling shoes. I send them one every few months. They respond within a day but it's always a thanks for the feedback and suggestion kind of thing.

    With most shoes I have a big pressure point somewhere behind my pinky toe.

    I just bought some Five Ten Hellcats and they're super comfortable. Very roomy toe box, they're definitely not narrow like most XC style shoes on the market. If you have super wide feet I would probably size up half a size.

    So, if I understand the suggestions correctly, if I normally wear a 10EE or 10.5E, I should order the Five Tens in size 11?

    That's what worked for me (1/2 size up for my EE feet), but I'd highly recommend shopping from someone who offers free returns. I'd worry about hot spots / pressure points primarily. Five Tens have padding that will pack down.

    just another insight - I have wide feet with size 13, and 5-10 Freerider was TOO TIGHT to the point where it hurts just walking around.

    However, I tried their Impact XVI, and that fits perfectly.

    So, not all 5-10 are wide. Some are narrower than other.

    Then don't make Impact XVI anymore, but the updated version looks similar - https://www.adidasoutdoor.com/FT83.html

    I can agree with that. I have some old Sam Hills, which are based off Impacts, and those fit at size, but are stiffer, clunkier shoes. The Freeriders are more of a skate shoe, but are narrower than the Impacts.

    If you don't have a local shop with a decent selection find a big online store with good return policy, order 2-3 different sizes, and send back the ones you don't need.

    Both Shimano and Giro make a wide versions of some of their models. Shimano's wide are wider than Giro in my experience.

    Garneau and Special Ed are the widest shoes I've found without going to wide widths.
