Shorty, do you typically wear like a EE wide shoe?

I wear 3E, sometimes 4. Any kind of shoe shopping is treacherous. Luckily, I live near the hometown of Columbia Sportswear and am able to find good trail runner type shoes that serve me well in extra-wide size.

Yes, whenever possible and more specifically always for New Balance running shoes if that helps. Can’t and won’t wear Nike shoes as they’re too narrow 

 

Ditto. It's ironic as I live 20 minutes from Nike World headquarters but I've never been able to wear any pair they make.

I have narrow feet. I like the Adidas trail running shoes. I never tried the Nike's.

I'm surprised to hear people recommend CrossFit shoes by Reeboks and even Inov-8's. I have used both of those shoes extensively and, in my opinion, CrossFit and minimalist shoes do not have enough structure and rigidity to guard against fatigue and provide stability. Regular sneakers are almost as bad.

 

Am I missing something?

 

I'm also looking at the UA Fat Tires -- but maybe that's just crazy talk.

After more research, the Inov-8 trail/hiking shoes (e.g. Roclite) seem like a strong choice. I would still discourage CrossFit shoes from Inov-8 or Reebok for the reasons mentioned above.

Salomon Speed Cross = proven to work best for the Sport

Recently got my Boombah Hellcat Mids. These fit like someone molded them to my entire foot front to back and top to bottom.  Light but sturdy and supportive while turning and transitioning. 

Will be ordering another pair ASAP.

I like the salomon speedcross for the gun games. I might have never put enough wear on them to rip. Mine have held up well enough. I think I might try Bombah next after hearing so much about them.

I use the Salomon speed cross as well...very comfortable and extremely grippy.

I have large feet and the Salomon's were too tight.  By the end of a match my toes were killing me.  I switched over to Boombah Berzerk Turf and couldn't be happier.

Always preferred Addidas hightop football cleats for outdoor use.

+1 vote for the Inov8 Roclite 315: good traction and support.

I have wide 2E feet too but I'm able to wear Solomon's all day without any tingling I get if I try to wear shoes that are too tight.

 

New Balance sells a snazzy looking trail shoe in 2E:

I think you might have to order them directly from salomon, but they offer wide fit versions of their shoes
