    I also have wide feet and Nike makes wides which I find comfortable even regular sizes fit well if it's the right material

    Go to a running store and they will properly fit you for both your feet, as well as your running gait.

    Went to the running store and got fitted for my Flintstones feet. I have wide and flat feet.

    They recommended a pair of Altra Torin 2.0 and it changed my running life. Seriously; go try on a pair!

    Love my altras. I have the torin 1, 2.5 and one.5 (or 1.25? I dont remember) Love the one.5s the best.

    I generally run in Nike Pegasus, because it comes because they have wides, which are 4E. (They might have 2Es too.) They are great because they are a very basic shoe and are durable.
    Altras don't come in different widths. But every model has a big toe box. They are very comfortable, but I have found they start to fall apart sooner than I would like.
    New Balance are really the only running shoes that come in different widths. (Pegasus are an aberration for Nike. None of their other models come in widths.) But I happen not to like New Balance. Their shoes are all really soft -- they are 'boaty' like a Cadillac is 'boaty.' All that softness is a bit harder on the knees, I find. Plus, it breaks down fast, leaving you with a shoe with nothing to recommend it.

    Brooks do 2E & 4E sizes in most of their styles, I find them to be the best non 'gimmicky' manufacturer out there.

    I have duck feet and wear neutral shoes, so Asics Cumulus and Nimbus work for me, as well as Sauconny Echelons. If you need stability shoes, Brooks Adrenaline are good for heavier runners. My husband likes Hokas, which have a lot of cushion.

    I got the Adidas Supernova running shoes for wide toes last week. I like them so far and are noticably roomy at the toes.

    Asics GT 2000-4, New Balance Fresh Foam Zante V2, Brooks Ravenna 7, Mizuno Wave Rider, Saucony Guide.....all of these fit differently depending if you supinate, pronate or are nuetral. Are you a heel striker or a toe runner. The best thing is to go to a running store as previously mentioned. At least the first time to find out what is best for your gait.

    Really? For BOTH feet? I can never seem to find a shoe that doesn't hurt my right foot! That baby toe is always screaming but my left foot is fine. I will go to the running store and see if they can help. Since we set the clocks ahead next week it will be light enough to hit the trails after work but I refuse to do that until I get the perfect shoes. No more wearing two socks on the right foot LOL!

    I don't have wide feet but I can tell that some shoes are definitely wider when I try them on. I just bought a pair of Hoka's. My husband (who does have wide feet) always wears these. They are okay on me but they are probably the widest shoe I've used--probably too wide.

    I have a wider toe base I have found new balance 860 to work for me. Again go to a running store they will fit you properly.
