big/wide shoes (W or E width)

Postby taxico » Fri, 06 Jun 2014 8:58 pm

okay. i need shoes but no time to head anywhere outside of asia to find a well fitting pair.

it's been tough finding anything in W or E. in the past 6-8 months i've looked in malaysia, HK, japan, korea, taiwan, indonesia.

where do all you big and wide footed guys find fitting shoes (>10.5) in singapore or am i doomed to shop online and pay through the nose for shipping...

I've never had much luck with dress shoes. I bought two pair at the Silk Market (knock off's) in Beijing that fit very well and have lasted surprisingly well, too.

Royal shoe stores (at least the one at Suntec) carry a couple of brands of hiking boots... Merrell, I think, that are wide.

thanks eagle, pretty much confirms what i thought. my wife refuses to go anywhere near PRC...

i've decided to not waste my time looking anymore and just bought a pair of shoes online.
