  2. Anything Specialized I find to be a good fit will. (Or will be a good fit etc...:angry: )
    Wider fitting I think and, if you look in accessories and clothing there are a few recommendations on bonj's thread.

    yep, the main one being to try them on before you buy them.
    I did try on some specialized ones but I didn't like them - they had an annoying 'ridge' where the arch of your foot is, and I've got fairly flat feet so it dug in a bit. I do like the specialized shoes I've already got though. So you never can tell really, from a picture on the internet. You do get a better range online, and you could keep ordering different ones and sending them back if you don't like them, or if they're the wrong size, but that's going to be a fairly tortuous process that you'd have to be quite patient to do.
    I did eventually settle on some scott shoes from another LBS, they were £40 and I'm pleased with them, they're comfy and look pretty mean in silver, and have got good ventage as summer's coming up.

    That shoe is discontinued, so good luck finding a pair.

    As for the wide fitting comment, when I bought my Specialized shoes I was invited to try them on in 2 different widths and the standard one was no wider than any other shoe I've tried. If you have wide feet, you have to find someone who stocks the E width shoes.
