I'm having a bitch of a time finding good casual/walking shoes that I can fit my square-shaped feet into. I'm probably going to pick up a pair of Alden Indy boots, but would really like to also get a couple pairs of lighter weight shoes that would be good for very long walks. I've looked at Tod's, Church's, etc., but they don't go that wide. AE made sneakers in EEE for a while, but they've been discontinued. Any suggestions? I'm not too price sensitive. Thanks.
Thanks to all. This isn't a choice destination for me, but I intend to make the best of it.
I am going to be in Carlsbad for the first time for a few days next month. I know next to nothing about the city except that it is a resort town and there are some caves somewhere nearby. Any recommendations on things to do or places to eat? For restaurants, I'm equally interested in the very high end and very low end (the latter particularly if it means top-notch CA-style Mexican food). Thanks!
