I'm looking for some wide-fitting running shoes of the minimal/barefoot type.
Usually, I take size 10 or 10.5 in the widest fitting . . .often, I have to buy an 11.0 to get a shoe that is wide enough.
I just cannot find any shoes to fit. I found that whilst New Balance offer shoes in width fittings, they don't offer them in any of their 'barefoot' or racing shoe models .
I've tried Merrells, but the only size that fitted width-wise, were size 11.5 which were too long.
Another problem I'm finding, is that many shoe shops don't have the full range of shoes in the sizes that I'd like to try.
My shoe problem has been going on for quite a while; I've been using an ancient pair of well-worn Walsh PB shoes for all training including on the road. They've been terrific, but now I'd like a pair of road/multi-terrain shoes which are lightweight and actually fit. I'm also going to be looking for replacements for the Walsh shoes - great shoes. Do Walsh make road shoes ?
Can anyone tell me a shop in North Wales/Shropshire/Cheshire/Staffordshire/Lancashire that might have what I'm looking for in stock ?
My requirements are such, that I think that buying online is too risky, with shoes unlikely to fit - I'd really like to try them first.
Anyone know if Athlete's Feet in North Wales is still going ?
Cheers for any suggestions
