/ Rock Shoes for Wide Feet
So, what else have hobbit footed people had success with or should I just get another pair of Gallileos?
I have really wide feet and get on with the Moccasyms from 5.10. They aren't lined, so stretch well. But they are not as stiff as the Gallieos. They are generally very good, but go sloppy a bit quick. Nothing a pair of socks doesn't solve. For harder sport climbing though, I deal with the pain and wear tight muiras.
Katana Laces are a bit wider than Miuras - sufficiently so that my not particularly narrow feet never felt particularly secure in them. But lots of people seem to really like them.
General note about shoes that are too narrow - they can lead to mortens neuromas (swollen inflamed nerves in the feet) which can require surgery if they get bad enough.
I've got wide feet and I find velcros work best. I've used Red Chili Spirit VCRs for a while now (3rd pair) and they work well for me.
