Trying to find a pair of size 8 Asics Nimbus 13s at present which is harder than finding hens' teeth. Nearly everywhere sees to have size 7, 7.5 and then 11, 12. The only size 8s seem to be in yucky green or the 2E and 4E fittings (or the odd place that is charging up to £50 more).

So how much difference would "e make over the normal D? sized shoe? Presently running in Nimbus 12s.

Hi - usually shoe widths go up from D to E to EE (or 2E) and so on therefore if you're currently a D (that's the standard width) then a 2E would be 2 width fittings more than that. You run the risk (no pun intended) of your feet rattling side to side if the shoes are too wide. You could maybe order a pair and send them back if they were too wide when you tried them on but you should notice a difference.

Got something to say?
