I don't think I'd want those blue monstrosities but as an avid bowler (albeit not a good one) I've often thought about taking an old pair of suede loafers and putting them on bowling soles just for the heck of it.

I hear you.  One would think that retailers know their market better than anyone else.  And the practice of focusing on "D" width almost exclusively (the "typical" or "standard" width - "F" in British shoes from what I understand) is widespread.  Most brick and mortar retailers in my town -- a large American one -- stock very few styles in "e" widths.  Almost all of the retailers with signficant Alden make-up business rarely offer their make-ups in wider widths than "D".  Even most of the Alden company stores, with some exceptions, do not have "e" widths in their make-up runs.  I can only conclude that either very few of the population has wide feet, or wide feet tend not to blow their money on shoes.

Any suggestions for decent socks at a good price? As nice as cashmere Marcolianis seem, they're not quite in the budget. I'm not quite sure what I like in terms of either fabric or style, so I'm open to trying a variety of each. Thanks!

Someone posted a couple of month ago about Uniqlo socks. I've since bought like 12 pairs and like them a lot for the price of only 4 for $9.90. 

 

If you have a store near you, check them out. They have an entire wall of men's socks in a rainbow of different colors. Or, you could buy online:
