The Wide Fitting Shoe Trading Post (EEE / G width) - Page 31

post #451 of 469

Well, I know this is kind of off-topic, but do any of my wide-footed brethren here do any running / jogging at all? I finally threw out my 10 year old Saucony Omnis, and I just wanted to see what else folks are using and in what sizing before just buying the same thing again. hopefully something with a little give in the ball to baby my bunions. TIA

Having a wide foot and high arch, I recently bought some Nike Air Pegasus and really like them. They give good support and are cushiony. I typically wear a 10.5 EEE I only sized up to 11 4E

I'm a 10.5EEE and run 3-4 miles/day (asphalt/small hills) using a size 11 Nike Vomero 8. The upper material stretches to form around the foot. There's only a stock width (D) and the folks at Fleet Feet suggested them and had me try them out. I've been using them for about 2 years and they've worked really well......No issues, very breathable, and fairly comfortable. Of course, I was coming off the NB993 (yeah, I cling to things that work until long after I should upgrade). The Vomero is up to the 10 or 11 now and I can't testify to how the newer ones fit but I can't imagine they'd be all that different. As everyone always says YMMV but they'd be worth trying on at least. The link below is just to show the shoe.....You might find a better price out there & I'd try to put a set on first just to see. Good luck............Ed

I wear either a 10.5 EEE or a 11EEE in most of my dress shoes. I have a high arch and a narrow heel. I went into a local running store and Nike Zoom Vomero's were suggested to me - Amazon doesn't have them stocked, but they come in a 4E (which is what I got). Worn them for about a year and I would definitely buy another pair without complaint. For reference I typically run about 5-6 miles a week, ontop of going to the gym. (These also make decent shoes for the gym)

New balance. You can get almost all of their shoes in 2E and EEE.

Thanks gents. I appreciate the advice.

Another runner checking in.

 

I'm a 9 EEE in Alden TruBalance (Indy Boot).  My foot is somewhat short and very flat.

 

I wear 10.5 4E in New Balance SL-1 Last (990 models).  In other New Balance lasts, I usually need 11 4E.

 

I used to wear various ASIC models in 10.5 4E, but they shrank their lasts a half size and narrowed the forefoot back in 2012-2013 or so.  I also wore the Saucony Guide (back when it was the Guide 6 and Guide 7) in 11 4E which worked okay for my feet but I haven't seen a 4E Saucony shoe in a while.

 

Never had any luck with Brooks, Nike, etc., even with Brooks offering 4E.

 

I do most of my miles in whatever previous year 990 models I've picked up at one the various outlet options available, though I usually rotate a different style of new shoe while training to get a feel for what's out there... these are almost exclusively in 11 4E since every running shoe last seems to be getting narrower and shorter....

I don't know crap about running, but I like New Balance because they are affordable, widely available and go to EEEE in width. That, and they are plenty comfortable.

Gentlemen,

 

I have an Alden Whiskey Shell Cordovan Long Wing Blucher in size 10E for sale.

 

Let me know if you are interested.

 

Thanks.

Pardon the self serving PSA. These Alden 662 in 11 EE are just not working for my 11 EEE feet and need a new home. PM me if interested.

Hello you lot!

 

I've been lurking for the last while trying to narrow down the brands I've been looking at for my next few pairs of shoes. Your collected ramblings/wisdom have been immensely helpful!

 

I'm another member of the wide-footed crowd. As far as I can tell I'm about a 9.5H UK (9.5UK H?). My UK-made Church's (Consuls) are 9.5H UK and are pretty much right.

 

This afternoon I tried on everything that Loake had, and nothing worked. They make a couple of styles that I don't like in an H last, so I tried a 10G UK, hoping the width would open up my options. They fit ok, but still weren't all that comfy.

 

Can recommend a brand (even if it's a US one that I'll have to mailorder) that will do something that'll fit a freak like me? I'm not after formal shoes, just something brown/light brown and a bit casual - along the lines of the Allen Edmonds Badlands or Dundees. And will I be a 10.5US EEE?

 

Confused in London, hoping to buy some of your shoes from the thread

Allen Edmomds makes EEE width (I own several pairs), but all of their last's run narrow. So they're more like E.5 or EE.


Alden will make you s truly Wide shoe. Their Barrie and TruBalance last's in E width fit me like an AE EEE, and they will make up to 4Es, but must be specially ordered and paid in full almost 6-9 months in advance. Often nonrefundable frown.gif

If for about 50% more than Aldens run in the UK you can get a fully made to measure Argentum shoe from meccariello. That might be the best option to avoid expensive guessing.


Won't Trickers make wide shoes?

Look at RM Williams Chelsea boots. I wear a 10.5H (UK/AUS fitting) and there was an even wider fitting available. Comfortable and hard wearing if you get the right sole. For reference I wear a 11UK in Tricker's Stow. Good luck!

If you are in the UK, then you pretty much live in the Mecca of shoemaking.  So, I would not try and get shoes from the States unless it was the last resort.

 

Furthermore, I own some Church's in G width that are perhaps my best fitting shoes.

 

With that said Crockett and Jones has several styles in G width.  So does Cheney and Alfred Sargent.

 

Trickers as well.  They have their 7 lasts which are equal to G width.

 

Do not forget the venerable Sanders and Sanders too.

 

If you must come to the States, then Alden are your best bet.  I would recommend the Barrie last in a US 10 EEE or EE.

 

Thanks.
