  1. I have weird feet, I have a narrow heel and fat toes so a wide toebox is essential. I wear both Mizuno Wave Inspires and Altra Provision 2.5s. The Inspire 11s had a wider toebox so I’m not a fan of the 12s, I went up a half size in them and my toes still rub so I tried the Altras! Though the zero drop takes some getting used to I love their foot shaped toebox!

  2. Altras all the way. They dont get mentioned enough because their a smaller company.

  3. Not only are my feet wide, they are flat and I over pronate. My feet are widest near my ankle, which makes finding shoes difficult to find. I started in Mizuno Wave Inspires until the 10. I have gone through 2 pairs of Brooks GTS 15s and 2 pairs of GTS 16s. I love them!
