Shoe widths

Slinky's new shoe's were delivered very quickly, in just a few days, but although she ordered a size bigger 7, they were too narrow, so have to go back. She needs an extra wide 2E. Seems there's nothing marked on the shoe saying what width they are! How daft! Mine are marked a men's D, but a lot of women's aren't marked.. Think maybe she should go for a gait analysis & fitting in store..

Brooks are supposed to be good for wider feet Dave but yes it sounds like a gait analysis is in order.

Both Brooks and New Balance are good for wide feet - perhaps best to get properly fitted - she doesn't have to buy them in store.

Asics patriot8  Pops,   shame really as they were a good price with her discount, at about £25, oh, and she liked the pink colour!

Ah !  After I had my gait analysis at Decathlon , I was immediately drawn to the Asics, mainly I admit because of the gorgeous colours, but the assistant had to wrestle them from my grasp, saying  " No, No , they are too narrow for you ! " I got some Mizunos instead , which are perfect for me .

That is such a shame :-( xxx

You can get wider one but not usually in store funnily enough. I have seen 2E for sale online

 I have a wide forefoot and have tried on lots and found the wider ones (at the toebox that is) are Brooks, Nike, Mizuno and Saucony. The Asics were far too narrow unfortunately but I think they do a wider 2E online.
