    Wide Size Mountain Bikes Shoes
    I was wondering if any one knows a company that makes mountain bike shoes in wide sizes. NOT a company that makes mountain bike shoes that just seem to "fit wider than average".

    I've tried a multitude of searches but what comes up is people discussing wide size, clip in, supported, trail/enduro shoes. Like Sidi.

    I would greatly appreciate any info I desperately need some dedicated 6E size flats.

    I don't know about that but I do know that 5.10 sells a sole kit where you can put a 5.10 sole on any shoe. Haven't tried it but may be worth looking in to if you have a "regular" shoe that fits well.

    Lakes tend to run on the wide side. Skate shoes would probably work too.

    What are you looking for, a cobbler?

    Lake and Sidi both have wide versions of some of their line up, if I remember correctly.

    LAKE makes wide versions. Check Zinn's site, or the lake site.

    I wear a 13 EEEE in new balance and have found the wide lake shoes to fit well. Mine current pair is falling apart after almost 2 years, so I'm looking around at some other (cheaper) options. Specialized appears to make wide versions of some of their shoes. Maybe try those?

    Thanks a ton for the Lake Reference. Never heard of them but they do have some wide stuff.

    Still can't find wide size shoes that don't have the spd bolt plate. None of their shoes in the freeride section come in wide.

    Is the market for dedicated freeride flats soo small that no company offers wide sizes?

    I took a quick look, not very thorough so undoubtedly missed something, but it looks to me like only one or two companies are making 'freeride' specific non-spd shoes in normal sizes.

    I would be willing to bet something from here would work just as well:

    Just look for similar features to what you're associating with freeride shoes.

    If you're looking for a flat shoe check out 5.10's. Like I said I wear wides and the rennies fit me fine when I'm riding platforms.

    If you find a shoe you like, you can always add the Stealth Rubber from a can. Google it.

    I have 10.5E feet. I had Keen Springwater shoes that felt like they were a tad to wide. Give them a try.
