    Wide Winter MTB shoes comparable to SIDI megas?

    My summer shoe is a SIDI dominator mega size 13. Unfortunately the winter MTB shoe from sidi (Diablo GTX) does not come in mega width.

    Anyone out there that normally wears SIDI megas have a winter shoe that fits similarly? Do you have to size up 1/2 or a full size? At 48, it is usually full sizes so in most cases 48 1/2 doesn't even exist.

    I normally hate to "size up" because I feel like I'm wearing clown shoes with a big empty space in front of my toes that will most likely rub on the front wheel.

    Thanks!

    The Lake MXZ302 looks a bit overkill for me - If only the MX140 came in EE....

    I have a pair of "cold weather" Sidis that are a full size bigger than my "warm weather" sidis, allowing room for a pair of moderately-thick wool socks in the winter. The thing that helps the most to keep my feet warm is a nice pair of winter riding tights (I got Crafts). You can also try Windstopper or neoprene socks.

    Sidi 48 megas are my preferred riding shoes. A few years back, a friend let me try on his pair of Answer Kashmirs in a 48. They actually fit my 13EEE pretty well with midweight Smartwool socks so I bought a pair. To be able to use a thicker sock comfortably, I used a shoe stretcher to widen up the toe box. Because the Kashmirs are made of leather they stretched pretty well. They aren't as heavily insulated as the Lake MXZ302 so I use a heavy wool sock with a toe warmer for riding when temps drop into the 20's. Between uses I put shoe trees in them to keep the leather from shrinking back down.
