This review is written by my husband whom the trainers are for:
My feet measure 250mm (heel to big toe) and 250mm circumference around the widest part. Using guides I found on the web, the length equates to UK size 6½, but at that size, my width measurement equates to approx 3E. Having read previous reviews advising to move up a size when ordering, I looked to the UK 7½ 2E. I have learned that a UK7, 2E fits a width measurement of approx 244mm and a UK8 2E equates to approx 250mm (my actual foot circumference). Not wanting to buy trainers more than a size up, that I would potentially walk-out-of at the heel, I took a punt at the UK7½ 2E with the risk that they would still not fit my foot width.
My previous shop purchased trainers have been UK 7½ with a non-leather upper (width's unknown, but likely to be standard). These `NB's are to replace a pair of UK 7½ Nike Air Icarus Plus Flywire's with `little toe' holes worn through the sides due to my wide feet. I have purchased just about everything on the internet except footwear as my wide feet have driven a desire to try before I buy. High street sports shops are very limited in choices to cater for wide feet, so now my feet have turned to the internet for a solution.
And the outcome is - I am pleased to report that the UK7½ 2E I purchased have been on my feet all morning and they fit comfortably with a thumbs width of room in front of my big toe, no walk-out at the heel and absolutely no pressure at the width. The rubber soles are firmer than my prior trainers, but this purchase was to find a wide enough trainer for general use and not running outdoors in wet conditions; on the oak and wood laminate floors of my home, they grip just fine. During my search, I found `New Balance' provided a greater choice of trainers that catered for wide fittings and would highly recommend NB and the MX624WN's.
