Gear Talk / Re: big, wide feet need touring shoes
« on: March 15, 2009, 09:18:11 am »
I use SIDI Mega Dominators - they seem to be easier to walk on than the road shoes, but I wouldn't want to hike in them. They look fairly odd around the grocery store, too :).

They did not completely solve my wide-foot issues though. I still was regularly getting pain in my leg near the end of 40+ miles, even after releasing the shoes' Velcro and ratchet straps a bit to promote blood flow. What seemed to work for me (YMMV) was adding an insole to the shoe. My theory is that this raised my foot above the rigid portion of the shoe, or it just allowed my feet to swell any way they wanted to. Regardless of "how" it worked, it has made a world of difference.
