Do you know any makes that offer a wide fit or come up wide.

I haven't got massively wide feet but they are certainly not narrow. 4 hours 40 mins into my bike ride last Sunday my feets were really sore caused by being squeezed at the front.

I was even tempted to stop , get off and take them off but I was 5 miles from home Wink

Similar 'boat' hear.

I use some diadora ones on the MTB that are wide, and the Gearne Tri shoe I have is wide, but I'd see how you get on with it as I think it's causing bruising on the top of my foot where the tongue folds.

Generally I find Shimanos a bit narrowm, and they only go up to 47s.

You could try Sidi, but not sure if they do a tri-suitable shoe. I've got a narrow foot and found the Sidi too broad, so went for Nike's which seem to be narrower, but that was when buying mountain bike shoes.

Carnac, Time or Luck shoes come up wide. I have wide flat feet, and have 2x Carnacs and 1x Lucks. The Carnacs are best. They are however expensive.
