    i share your pain! its hard work having flippers not feet.
    when it comes to running shoes the answer in NB, nothing else fits. try paraflex footwear based in chch, only people that ever made boots for me that fitted and didnt rub. i understand there is new management but hopefully still ok


    Home - Paraflex

    and no! i do not work for them

    Hi I also have wide flipper feet and have got a pair of stoney creek greywacke boots so far they have been great! And before these I had ridgeline Apache which were also a great fit for my flippers!

    I have wide feet and its bugged me for years. Hunt in Bullers and will be transitioning to Ashley. You can get 4E in Asics which I use for running/walking.If you check out USA Nike has 4E but useless NZ retailers will not stock them. I import my workday shoes from England because i cannot get the width in NZ and most retailers are too tired/lazy to get off their arse to help you. God help retailers if Aliexpress or Amazon take a hold in NZ.

    Cheers yea I use the Bullers and have done for years and own greywacke and wide lowas, the change up from bullers was great for warmth now just use bullers in urewera when hitting streams and have holes in the bottom. Maybe wasn't clear i use 4 e shoes and they are all good but can't find a boot comparable I will try bestard and redback on and see. Thank you for the advice!!!
