Extra wide shoes - please help
I'm have problems trying to find a suitable pair of badminton shoes.
I've tried Yonex SHB-101M and an an Asics pair (don't know model details) and had a good look around the shop. Generally from what I've come across, the shoes have been too narrow and were very uncomfortable.
I'm not sure the best way to present the info but I'm a UK size 8 with a width of 10cm at the widest part.
Can anyone suggest some names/models? I am not bothered about how good they look and would rather pay for comfort.

You can order a "W" version of the SHB81 from shuttle-house. It is a 4E width. I don't normally recommend buying shoes without trying them on but 4E is very hard to find otherwise.

I've also had problems with regular shoes, due to my wide flat feet.
My US size 8.5 is 11 cm at the widest part!
Ultimately, I heard about the Yonex SHB200's which is a wide model. Tried it and immediately bought it. Two years later now and wondering why I didn't get it earlier...

I have no idea how you can fit your feet into them

Yes, the WM version (only available in Japan) of the 200's is 4E, whereas the EX version (available worldwide) is only 3E. But the 3E is good enough for me, whereas none of the regular width Yonex shoes would fit me.

SHB91/92 should be a little wider as well than 101 ...

I used to wear US10/JP 28cm for the older yonex models (SHB89, SHB99LTD etc) but started to wear half size bigger now (US10.5/28.5cm) for the new models. I bought a US10.5 SHB80W from shuttlehouse last year and it just fitted nicely.
Reckon the new yonex models are narrower at the front (its unlikely my feet have expanded).
