No, not really. But I am a guy with high volume feet, and it's time to break down and buy a new pair of road shoes. So I need some suggestions on shoes, from those of you out there who have feet that need a larger toe box. So, bring on the suggestions...

    I've found diadora best for my wide feet.

    Bont - standard width have a generous toe box, but a wider fit is also available.
    Giro - standard fit is maybe a bit narrow if your feet a really wide although they work for me. They do 'HV' models.
    Specialized - again, these have a nice wide toe box, but I find they pinch across the top of the foot.

    What shoes do you have currently?

    Currently wearing out a pair of Diadora X-Country 2 mtb shoes. I picked the mtb shoes because I also use them for commuting back and forth to work and I wanted something I could walk in comfortably. But the time has come to get a pair of dedicated road shoes and pedals. The Diadoras I have fit nicely, and are comfortable, but the sole is a bit too flexible and they're HEAVY.
