Wide Shoes
« on: January 15, 2018, 08:05:35 PM »
So I just joined up because I need to ask...
I have hobbit feet. What are some wide skate shoes you guys enjoy? I've been skating Vans Old Skool and they make my little toe dig into the one next to it and it's extremely painful. I need something with a wider toebox so I can spread my toes out a little more. Preferably suede upper too, but I'm not super picky.

Judging by my swift 1.5, the new es stuff seems to be really high volume overall.  Makes them unskateable for me personally, but if you need some room I bet they’re great.  True to size.

DC Astor S. I have wider feet and they're a little too wide. But if that's what you need, they are super comfortable and you can find them for like $30. Make sure you get the ones that have the "s" though for the super suede.

first mark suciu model was pretty wide on the toebox (plus it tends to get a little wider with sessions) roomy for sure

DC Evan Smith - Toe box is perfect for those with wide feet. Shoe is comfy and breaks in really fast; currently skating the highs.

I have the same problem with old skools, but not 112s. Maybe try those if you wanna stick with Vans. Also, Emerica Wino G6 are kinda wide

I've got wide feet too and can't skate alot of shoes. Surprisingly, the Cons CTAS skate version is the most comfortable shoe I've had. It's alottttt wider than regular chucks and you can't go wrong with that cushy fucking lunarlon insole.

Better scoop some up, they just redid the CTAS and now it basically fits and feels like a regular converse, but with a zoom insole.

I like the matchcourt slips and the new city cups are pretty nice for wide feet.

Getting rid of the Lunarlon insoles makes me never want to buy another pair of converse. That was the best part of the shoe.

Adidas have been true to size for me. The Lucas puig premieres were a little snug, small toe box.

Idk yet honestly, at first i didn’t like how bulky the lunarlon was but they lasted forever and broke in really nice.

Now that I have a pair of the new low tops, they feel kind of flimsy. They feel like two completely different shoes.

 Converse always worked ok for my feet tho, I just Get them true to size instead of sizing down like people usually do.

Es swfts dude i have the same problem, i cant squeeze my feet into like any shoe by adidas or nike, but es swifts after a day or two just feel like home for your feet. trust me they may be a little snug at first bu once they are broken in they feel amazing! (an they seem to make my feet just look slimmer too!)

State Hudsons seem to nice and wide out of the box, can only imagine how nice they'll feel once broken in; remind me of fallen.

If y'all call Blazers and CTAS wide, I can't even imagine what the fuck you were wearing before.

As a person with actual wide feet, I can only really claim two shoes to be comfy out of the box: Vans Crockett 1s (haven't tried the 2s) and Servant Loiters.

They're referring to the new version. Bought the lunarlon and my foot looks like it's about to burst out of the shoe

I literally look once a week or so for US10 crockett ones (fuck those were amazing mids). =(

I was super bummed when I tried it on, because the toe box was way too tight.

Vans Sk8-Hi pros rubbed my little toes a bit, but wore in/stretched out to be really comfortable.

I know no one here cares usually but the Globe Mahalo's, the vulc ones, are the widest shoes I've seen in person. Sold a ton of them at the shop I worked at and people really swore by them.

those sure are nice looking shoes. I just stocked up on the oddly comfortable lunarion CTAS and have Accels as chillers but might have to snag a pair of the Mahalo's over the summer.

For years I skated Lakai Telford High Tops religiously. When Lakai they stopped making them I moved to Nike Dunk's, which are more narrow than I like--my feet can feel the rubber side walls on the soles. I have been skating Vans Pro Hi Tops lately, but the forefoot area is so thin that I dread missing a trick. The Vans are perfectly wide though, but not all Vans are wide enough. I tried on the Crockett 2 and it was super narrow around my arch, so I returned them right away. I am thinking about finding a wider pair of cup sole hybrid Vans like the ones mentioned in the 'coffee break' review. I have never worn Globe's but they do look wide on screen. I think I missed the boat on the Crockett 1s. I am going to be hitting the stores before Spring to find a wide cup sole shoe that is comfortable and has good padding (hopefully high tops for my weak ankles). I will let you all know if I find something that works for me as it may work for you all. One would think that New Balance (the old man walking shoe of choice) would make wider skate shoes, but it sounds like theirs are the narrowest. Thanks.
