Wide skate shoes
« on: March 15, 2016, 11:34:24 AM »
I have wide feet, EE wide to be exact.
I was buying addidas campus vulc for a number of years, but they decided to stop making  them.
Does anyone have any recommendations for wide shoes?

I don't know the exact width of my friends feet but they are fucking wide and he blew out the sides on a shit ton of shoes.  The Nike GT's have been working for him.  You may want to give them a go.  Also think he used to skate the Van's era a lot.  He also skated a few pair of the Campus, so hopefully those suggestions will work for you

I appreciate it, they don't seem to make the campus, I won't wear the swoosh.
I will look for the arto NB, I like new balance in my non skateboarding life.

I just thought about it, have you tried the Adi-ease?  The premiere ones look nice and they cost similar to the campus I think.  They look like they may stretch to accommodate a wider foot in the same area too.  Or the Romero Laced run a bit wider too.

getting ready for the kooks, but the Fallen Jon Dickson Pro model, the Roach, is a pretty wide shoe. one of the very few shoes i ever had where i didnt have at least a little pain at first. Emerica Provost, the older model. The Supra Ellington Vulc felt pretty good as well. Vans Era Pro too.

I have wide feet and I copped a bunch of etnies maranas and they fit like a glove right away, super comfy.

I also bought these shitty dcs discounted, the dc pure, dont ever buy those for fuck sakes. I tried to break them in but its not happening unless I cut off my baby toe and shave off a half inch of my foot

The Reynolds shoe on Emerica is perfect for me. The Vulc is a little bit more comfy at first but hurt my feet if I skate in them too much. I buy the "Low", which is the cupsole version and after a day of wearing around they are perfect. In general a lot of Emericas seem to be a bit wider, the Leo Laced is another good option if you get a suede version. I have to go up a size in almost any other brand/shoe.

I second the etnies marana rec, got a pair on right now. I have super huge and wide feet and they fit great. With some shoe goo they also last a good long while too.

I have pretty wide feet. The etnies marana (OG) and the DC Lynx have felt great. Just got my 4th pair of Lynx and I'm loving them.

Lakai MJ's and Hawks are roomie enough. Cabs and Eras work too but not Rowleys. Most Emericas work.
Find NB's, Huf and Adidas a little narrow and have to half size up or do the expand in freezer trick.

Just gotta be a fine upstanding local and go to your local non-chain store and try those shits on, if they fit then buy them not go to the internets and find the cheapest ones cause if you keep that up the store might not be there next time.

I wear a size 13 and have wide ass feet. The best shoes I've skated in a while  in terms of wideness have been the Suicu.

You still have to break them in, they can feel bulky at first, are a hotbox, and definitely rip a hole in your sock when you start wearing them. Even so, I've had two pairs in a row and I'm pretty happy.

I have a pair of Huf Choice and I can spread my toes out pretty comfortably in them, curl 'em up like little toe fists too.

Reebok has some shoes up to 4e width that are decent for skating

Also canvas stretches. The emerica  winos are good. A lil shoe goo and away you go

I have super wide feet and have busted the sides out of lots of shoes.   Halfcab pros feel narrow when you first put them on but after wearing them around for a week or two they'll flatten out and feel perfect.  Skating a brand new pair will murder your feet but if you just walk around in them to break them in first, you'll be all good.

Half cab pro's not the regular half cabs.

I am in the same boat.  I have been looking for shoes for years.  When I find something that fits my feet(30 years of skateboarding has left me with wide, flat feet) I will buy multiple pair.  I am down to my last pair of DVS HUF 5s.  I prefer strobel too...no vulc.  And the shoe has to be deep enough to accommodate an ankle brace.
