Extra Wide Walking Shoe

It's time to get new walking shoes for travel. For years I wore Brooks Addiction Walkers. But due to supply problems, they wll not be available until Spring. (I've also heard they "improved" it which means they made it worse.)

So I need to find something else. I thought I'd ask here.

I need....a pair of men's black walking shoe in 4E size that can be double as an acceptable shoe going into restaurants. It needs to give good support and cushioning for long days on my feet. (No sneakers.)

If it doesn't come in a wide size, it's no good. (Eccos come to mind.)

Any suggestions?

I have worn Dunham shoes on and off. They offer a nice selection of leather, waterproof shoes. I have also owned Nunn Bush and Rockport shoes, both comfortable, Nunn Bush was more for dress shoes, but they have more casual ones as well.

I find Zappos to be a good place to look, you can use the filter to narrow down to size, style, width, etc. Good selection, good prices, quick delivery and easy returns if needed.

Zapppos is my go-to place for shoes.

I wore Rockport for years but a new design made them very uncomfortable.

I'll look into your suggestions. Thanks.

I had a pair of wide Dunhams too. Good quality. Not sure if they have a good walking style. The most comfortable shoes I've owned were SAS. I think they have extra wide.

The Altra styles I need don't come in 4E.

There is an SAS store near me. I'll check them out.

I know you said no “sneakers” but the Hoka One, Bondi style comes in all black, 4EEEE and is the most comfortable supportive shoe I have found.

SAS stores are good to check out since they measure your feet and very carefully fit your shoes. I was very impressed with their service when I went.

I see that SAS has triple wide shoes ( I take double wide). Very compfortable. I have worn the for over 30 years. I have literally put on a new pair and walked a 10K with no problem. Never had a blister.

Have you looked into New Balance? I believe that they offer more than sneakers ...
