    Bonking ... not feelin' well wide shoes?

    I am looking to replace my old Diadora's, size 43. I ordered some new Diadora Habaneros, size 43 but these are not as wide and are somewhat longer. At present, I am trying to track down some SIDIs, as I heard that they come in different widths. However, I have only seen size designations (no width) on websites and on the boxes at the shops. Any help is appreciated.

    What you need to be asking for are the Sidi shoes in 43 (MEGA) Mega is the Sidi designator for a wider shoe. I dont need the Mega's, but I doubt I will ride another shoe. Like a glove, out of the box. My first pair, I bolted on cleats, and on the first ride, i rode from Anchorage to Seward. No hotspots, no blisters, No discomfort from new shoes. 4 years later, I am just now in my second pair. I still have the old ones, and they are still servicable. If you have the cabbage, you will not regret it. Later.

    That Diadora, Specialized, and NorthWave make the widest shoes. Stay away from anyone else. I wear size 48 and am limited to those three companies for that reason, I can't find any wide enough to fit other than from those companies.

    Good luck

    Yeah, I have big(47) wide, feet, and I love my northwave's. I bought them on clearance from nashbar for $30(size 47 only). Stay away from shimano, and a prevoius poster said specialized, but I can not stand the way they feel on my feet.
    Peace

    Lake also has a couple of models in wide widths. Check on Performance Bike's website. They normally have them in stock.

    I wear 48 wides and get decent comfort from a pair of Shimano shoes. I also have Specialized and Diadoras (not sure of the model) and they're actually a little narrower. Worth a look.

    I wear 43's and I have a wide foot with avery low arch. Shimano's work great for me (almost any of the Shimano MTB shoes that is). For even btter fit, i get and aftermarket insert.

    I have wide feet

    Shimano M221, Pearl Izumi Vapor, Carnac and Time fit me. But I find Carnac mtb shoes to be heavy and not as durable as their road counterpart, and Time mtb shoes are ugly beyond belief.

    Check the size, of course. I wear a 44 in Shimano but a 43 in my Time Equipe Pros and Vapors.
