having just been "fitted" for proper running shoes, i have a better understanding of the shape of my feet and what kind of shoe i should and shouldn't be wearing. Adidas are out as they are built too narrow, so are nike which are slightly less narrow. I have a pair of Stuburt, but they are falling apart so i'm not going to be buying another pair. Now, from what i can see, that leaves me with Footjoy or Ecco.

Anyone with wide feet got any opinions on those brands in general. Or any other suggestions?

Both Ecco and Footjoy are excellent, I wear Footjoys on the course and not had any problems (except the spikes are soft wearing) but I have a pair of Ecco shoes and they are the most comfy I have worn.

I have always found Footjoy fine, and recently treat myself to some Classics, which they do in all kinds of wider fittings.
Expensive, but absolutely fantastic to wear.

Mind you, I also have some Adidas 360Ltd and they are superb too.

Hey Slugger,
I agree with Parmo, both Ecco and Footjoy shoes are great, ive just bought some synr-g footjoys to replace my old ecco ones and they are the comfiest i have ever worn, i felt like i had been wearing them for months the first time i played in them.My old Ecco ones were equally as comfortable but took about half a dozen rounds to wear them in, i also got quite a few rather unpleasent blisters. My feet are really wide and i also srtruggle to find comfortable shoes.If i were you i would definatley give the Syner-g a try, comfy as anything and look the part too :eek:)

I have the wide fit issue too.
Just a month ago purchased Footjoy dryjoys in the extra wide fit, they do standard, wide and extra wide.

Having tried most brands, I paid that little more for the FJ's but can homestly say it was worth every penny, my footjoys dryjoys are like a pair of comfy slippers.

I have tried the Adidas Tour 360's but their wide is not that wide at all.

Finally can get the correct length shoe rather than buying longer than required just to get a wider fit! Well done Footjoy :)

If it is of interest I know footjoy offer a custom fit shoe process where they measure your feet with some sort of laser device and get a perfect match of width, length, optimum sole shape etc.

Most manufacturers offer a wide fit off the shelf though.

I have quite weird feet in that I have narrow ankles and slabs at my toes and mid foot.

Adidas seem to offer me the best fit. I have a couple of pairs of powerbands.

Footjoy get my vote for wide fitting. Adidas generally are too narrow including the standard 360 shoes. However the 360LTD does have a reasonable wide fitting. I think a lot of manufacturers have cottend on that we all don't have feet like Coco the clown. And that there is such a thing as wide or high arched feet.
