Wide Feet

Does anyone have any suggestions for wide kayak shoes/boots? I have 4E feet and finding shoes is a chore.

Thanks.

I too suffer from duck-foot syndrome, I recommend Keen - the widest water shoe I could find. I also have some Chaco's that actually came in a wide width but I wouldn't wear them in my kayak.

Can you wear your Keens in your kayak when you cant wear your Chacos?

My Chaco's get stuck because the sole bends backwards which Keen's can't because the toe piece actually covers your toe and does not jam itself in the boat as badly. I would only recommend them in a creeker, no way would I wear them in a river runner or playboat.

My 3E foot is pretty comfy in the 5.10 Canyoneers, although it's a bitch getting the wide part of my foot through the opening to get the shoes on. I'm sure you're used to that, though.
