Jonas Kirovwrote a review of Shimano SH-XC7 Wide Cycling Shoe - Men's on December 26, 2018
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
For a shoe that says WIDE right on the tongue, they were surprisingly narrow. While the overall construction of the shoe seems great and the soles are super grippy and stiff, it was just a nonstarter, they felt more narrow than my old bike shoes, which were not supposedly wide.
It's unfortunate because there aren't that many wide bike shoes that cost less than $400, and I was hoping these would be the ones. So, in short, if you have *kind of* wide feet you might give these a try, if you have freaky wide feet, and are the kind of person who has to have their ski boot shells punched out and most rock shoes don't work for you, then probably pass on these.
