Dominic from Shoreline Wide Shoes called last Friday with news that my special-order NB SC 602 soccer cleats had arrived. I had a previous pair, but they were only 2E, and I felt that I needed a bit more width.
I’ve think that they are totally acceptable, but still not perfect. Something about the engineering of a soccer cleat means that the toe needs to be a bit pointed, whereas the widest part of my foot perhaps a half an inch behind where the toes meet the forefoot. A pointed toe still feels cramped, even at 4E.
However: this is a nice shoe, inexpensive (about $60 USD), and will fit the bill for my leisurely soccer career.
