Wide fitting shoes
can anyone recommend a wide fitting shoe? I am only a UK7 but my feet are wide. The shoes I have tried so far are too thin.

I have the same size feet as you and the only shoes in the UK that are ok for me are the SHBSC5 EX. Haven't tried the others as yet.

the brands that have wide models that i know of are:
Yonex (on some specific models)
Mizuno (on some specific models)
Victor (on some specific models)
most of them will be marked "wide". unfortunately, they are also hard to find as only limited models are wide versions.

try ones that don't have the lateral claws... those claws for extra lateral support tend to crimp the forefoot of people with wide feet like us
i'm quite happy with the yonex shb-200ex for the past 2 years
there's supposed to be a newer yonex model to replace it... shb-sc5ex, i think

Shuttle-House. The wide shoe models of Yonex and Mizuno make have the "wide" label in their model names so it is highly impossible for you to miss them.
Sports fitness is important, but keeping yourself safe from injury by having the correct equipment is even more important.

Eh? Which yonex models did you try? What about the two models mentioned above?

SHB 85 EX almost fitted in a 7.5 but too big in an 8
SHB 92 MX were too small in a 7 too big in an 8
Wilson Court Elite 800
Prince MV4 Indoor Court
they are getting some asics in in a couple of weeks that are wide fitting ...

Eh? Don't bother with any yonex models other than shb 200 ex or sc5 ex. Just find a store that carries them, don't even bother going there if they don't have them. :shrug:

You may be able to get that at a larger size to accommodate the wide fore feet and have the Metal-X secure the heel tightly but once you start lunging then all the free space at the front of your toes will make your front feet slide and sprain your ankle lol
