Bike shoes for fat feet

Not for me, I love all my shoes.

My mate has massive slabs of meat. Only size 10 but wide and high.

Any suggestions for him? He’s just getting into the sport.

Oh, I can do this. My feet are size 11-12 and wide indeed…

Giro do a whole line of wide size shoes. They call them HV (high volume).

Or…Shimano have always done good wide sizes for big plates. Even their standard size s-phyres are a good fit for me.

Northwave are another brand that as standard seem quite wide. My winter boots are snug but plenty big enough for fat feet.

Hope that helps.

Lake shoes are amazing, and they do wide versions. I love my cx332.

Cheers, I’ll report back.

An older model of the Mavic cosmic has lots* of adjustment around the front foot (*more than most)

I reported back, he nearly shit himself, they all cost about the same as his bike :joy:

If he has the dollar, fizik just brought out a new wide fit. They look lively as well.

I think mine are wide fit Gaerne.

Specialized TriVent - these are over a decade old now and still going very strong. Only used for races.

Shimano RC7 Wide Fit - sweet mother these are nice. However, you need to put a little Velcro on the tongue and top strap, as the tongue has a tendency to slide. These fit much nicer than the normal fit RC5s (which are less than half the price and also a good training shoe)

Was reading this with interest as I need some new shoes and have wide feet. Like @PCP mate said…shit the bed. These are all very expensive! :joy: :see_no_evil:

Not really, my TriVents have lasted over a decade and were second hand when I bought them

I get that but They are for someone just starting out who may do 1 year.

All shimano shoes are regarded as wide. I have expensive ones but also entry level shoes I use on my spin bike with SPDs.

Anyway, wiggle appear to have exactly the same ones in stock in a 44 right now which should be his size for £70 (maybe you could buy them for him and get the 12% off)…

Yup!
My Northwave normal width winter boots are a great fit (just a shame they take a week to dry out!)

Lake shoes, got some half price a couple of years ago. Great for long distances with my duck feet (sadly I don’t swim like a duck)
