Last time I looked they didn't do wide fitting on any but the very cushioned types, but I should definitely go back for another look. Thanks for reminding me! :-)

after toe blister prolems and losing toenails i only buy men's trainers as they have a wider forefoot (all 3 have been asics kayano) - and had a better marathon using those in september (i couldn't find good priced ladies D trainers and was recommended trying blokes trainers)

Sadly, men's trainers don't seem to come in size 5 - happy to be proved wrong if anyone knows of any?

I always have to have men's trainers - I suffer with bruised toes and always end up minus a few toenails when training for a marathon etc. plus I have blooming great big wide feet.

I am a size 5 in normal shoes beebop - but at gait analysis was put in a size 7D - but wear a men's 6.5 now - seems asics do men's 5 as well if your feet are that diddy :) don't know about other brands

Asics, eh? Have tried on some of the women's ones and didn't get on with them at all, but I'll have to look into the men's. Thanks. :-)

I tend to be size 3 (or 4 for added width) in 'normal' shoes - used to do well in children's departments. Never thought to look at children's trainers, but the shoes always seem to be wider than adults'. My feet never got narrower with age, so what's the thinking there? Apart from the fact that most people don't have freakishly wide feet, I suppose. ;-)

Got something to say?
