    Couldn't say for sure which have the widest, but certainly Lake do some pretty wide fitting shoes and (for some models more than others) they have very wide forefoot sections. I don't know about your condition, but might it not be worth getting something custom made? If that's not an option could knitted shoes help perhaps?

    Lake sprang to mind for me as well.
    Felt F70 05 (Turbo)
    Marin Palisades Trail 91 and 06
    Scott CR1 SL 12
    Cannondale Synapse Adventure 15 & 16 Di2
    Scott Foil 18

    I was going to suggest bont, I've got wide feet and find their std size gives me enough space for the fore foot but is tight for my heel. Might be worth a look if you don't have wide feet but want a room for toe spread.

    Shimano do a wide fit option.

    Lake are the ones I went with. One of theirs is 11mm wider than most shoes.

    Bonts & Lakes are both good suggestions.

    My feet seem to be somewhere in the middle so I found both of these had loads of room when I tried them.

    Shimano wide-fit aren't very wide. I've tried them and was very disappointed with the fit.

    I’d absolutely suggest speaking to James at Bicycle in Richmond. The guys knows his shoes…

    He absolutely does but he will certainly veer you towards certain products as well.

    If you want Lake shoes & G8 insoles he's your man.

    I bought the Giro Empire E70 Knit as I need a wide forefoot. Most comfortable shoe I've owned
