If you're a big guy like me (375 lbs.), I don't need to tell you how hard it is to find a comfortable, reasonably priced shoe that actually fits a bigger man with a wide foot. In fact, I have found that the price you pay, brand name, or even availability of special super wide sizes like 4E and 6E, is really no guarantee or indication that the shoes will fit you right, as they all run different. You must try them on. I have tried ordering much more expensive shoes than this $30 pair in the ultimate 6E width, only to find I couldn't get them on my foot. When I finally tried on a pair of these Dr. Scholl's Air Pillo Gel Velcro Shoes in wide width, I was amazed at how easily they went on considering they are only marked wide width. This sizing, though perfect for me, was not identical to other Dr. Scholl's styles marked the same size. All the others in this line ran smaller as far as fit was concerned. But this model is a great find for us big men. Similarly, if all those brand name 4E and 6E shoes fit you well, you might find this style shoe to be way too big on your foot, but for me it is just right, with a great price to boot. I assume the key reason this standard wide width style fits the best has a lot to do with the velcro closing straps. They allow the shoe to open much wider than conventional ties, and bending over to connect the velcro straps is easier for a big person that trying to tie the shoes. So for good fit on a really wide foot with easier closure than lace ties, I strongly recommend this shoe to others. Note: This shoe runs true to size. In other brands, though I wear a size 12, I have to upsize to a size 13 to get the width to work.
