    Stiff, rubber-soled shoe options?

    Hi.

    I've been wearing Northwave Bike & Walks for the past year. They're good, in general, but run
    a bit tight for my feet and I get numbness about 45 minutes into my ride.

    I'm looking for something wider and also stiffer-soled that the Northwaves. I've been looking at both Lake and Sidi, since they come in wide versions. I like the Sidi Dominators, but can't live with the plastic treads (I don't do that much HAB, but when I do, I want to have at least some traction). The Lake 170s are my leading option, but am wondering if there are Sidis with rubber (and stiff) soles.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the suggestion. But I ride SPDs, not platform pedals.
