Allen Edmonds don't float my boat. Same with Alden. Any suggestions for 13 wide? All of that shoe porn seems to be unavailable to me.

i have wide feet also, and found no problem wearing c&j, santoni, rl/eg.....Originally Posted by acidicboy
Thanks for the C&J tip. One of these days, I'll have to try to get up to A&T before they close. I picked up a couple of pairs of RM Williams boots recently precisely because I could get them in wide widths; I'd ordered a pair from Orvis earlier that I returned. The price was right, but they don't carry wide RMWs.
If you can make it to the C&J in NYC, you really *must* go. The staff is very knowledgeable: they know their lasts, leathers, and how far each can be "pushed" for a wide fit. Although I ordered my first C&J's from Ben Silver, I could have saved myself considerble time by just showing up at the store. Just resign yourself to paying full retail for one pair...Originally Posted by minimal
C&J doesn't actually have a storefront in New York, but that their shoes were sold out of the top floor of Turnbull & Asser. No?
Crockett&Jones: The much-loved 337 last (on which many if not all of the handgrade line is based) is pretty wide (maybe an actual USA E). I can get a good fit, but had to go to their NYC store to try on a few first: the conversion between USA and UK sizes/widths means trial-by-mail is tough. Well worth the effort.Originally Posted by minimal

Acidic Boy, do you go up a size, or have wide sizes MTO, or what? I was in C21 the other day trying on the Zegna Couture bluchers, all D width, and I couldn't even get them on my feet.
