    Current best skates for wide feet?

    Hi everyone.
    I'm gonna attempt to get back into skating. Been over 10 years and I just wanna start working the miniramp again.

    I skated K2s back in the day. Had a pair of backyard bobs forever. Also liked Remz OS when they popped out.

    Thing is I have a wider foot. I was thinking about trying to find some Xsjado boots and using my own shoes. But IDK if wider sneakers would fit. I'm also a sized 9.5-10 and that's a thing for xsjado right? I'd need small boots and large frames or something like that. Add to that that Xsjado is gone... so unless I get lucky, I'm back to square one.

    Another thing, I don't like heel lift. I had thought about getting New Jacks.. but I saw some reviews talking about the heel and foward lean. That isn't for me either...

    So yea, any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

    Hmm based off of the models you liked I’ll just recommend the new model K2’s or Remz. Just don’t do what I did let me explain. So back in the day I loved classic thrones. When I decided to get back I bought a pair of valos. Forgot to mention I got wide feet. It ends with me hating the valos and purchasing Aeons. I regret wasting 300 on my valo setup that still look slightly used. If you are in Los Angeles I’ll give you a deal on my sk2 w co frames and dead wheels. The wheels fucken suck though.

      For wide feet and no heel lift I'd recommend Carbon frees. I have a medium width foot and they're a tad roomy for me. If you like old K2/Remz flex then I think you'll like these. From what I've been told the new K2's don't feel much like the old ones. I believe the Eisler, Montre, and Enin frees are all the same shape

        As a long-time K2 loyalist, I gotta recommend the 2017-2018 Unnaturals.

        They fit true-to-size (I wear an 11 US shoe and 11 US Unnatural skate), i have medium wide feet, there is little to no heel rise, and the instep strap keeps your heel locked down so there's no heel lift.
        You could keep the laces not so tight like I do. You have complete control over forward flexibility with the velcro strap above the buckle.

        They are great skates, can't recommend them enoug.

          Someone suggested Remz, but you should try them before buying, the toebox is really low, so even though they were wide enough for me, top-to-bottom my toes were squashed.

            I'd love to be able to try any of these on. I can't think of any place near me that sells inline.
            I'm near Blacksburg VA.

            ??????if I were to track down small xsjado shells and adjust them to full length would a wider size 10 fit it?

              For xsjado you would need a m shell. Once 2.0 came out the days of needing to cram into small shells was over. I have extremely wide feet and I would recommend any of the carbon skates. Usd,Seba,adapt, valo lights etc. I have skates valo lights and Usd carbon three and both were fine for me.

                I'd second that. I'd argue that Remz are possibly one the worst skates for wide feet.

                Try them if you can though. If you can get your foot in, like any skate, they will break nicely.

                  I am shocked people are suggesting USD for wide feet. I have hurt in every single pair I have tried. Remz I have now and they do not hurt my feet but that toe box comment is legit. They feel better than my USD which never stopped hurting for their entire life with me. I wish USD felt better because I like my carbons better than my remz for skating, just not for comfort. Remz may take the win on grinding/sess but everything else goes to USD. I don't think I am ever buying a pair of skates again that aren't carbon fiber. I did not think the weight difference would be noticeable but it really is after lights, then carbons, and now remz. I might just bite the bullet on Adapt next, possibly Seba if they can ever make a white carbon skate without snowflakes and shit on em.

                    There is a break in period with remz for sure.

                      So, my next question would be... Hows do I go about finding a place to try on some skates?
                      Only skate shop near me sells boards... And board guys around here are all kind of cunts about skates.

                        So you said you live in VA, how far are you from Oak City Skate shop? Long (the owner) is a super chill guy with a great store! Hell hes always willing to geek out about gear talk if you want to give him a call

                          If you aren’t able to try on a pair make sure you measure your feet in cm and call in the order and explain your situation like the other poster has said the guys working there always seem to be in high spirits willing to answer any questions to get you back on some blades. I came back and I love my aeons. I can wear them for 4 hours straight and have no feet complaints sometimes using them travel 5-6 miles. Still been skating everyday. Hope you get a pair soon keep us updated.

                            I always hear ppl say valos are no good if you have wide feet, but my feet are pretty wide and my v13s fit fine. I tried gen 11s and they were too wide. They were also floppy pieces of shit but thats beside the point.

                              Exactly - it depends where your foot falls in the shell sizing - some people might find the shell a touch too long, but suitably wide and fits great.

                                I also have problems finding skates that fit me properly. The main problems seems to be that due to the low sales in the aggressive market, major brands have to rely on duel sized shells. My foot size is right at 9, and most shells are either too small or too big. The Aeons are absolutely amazing skates, but the shell is too big. The Valo shell is too small, and the size 10 shell has a very flexible cuff which I don't like. I also skated K2 forever back in the day, and Salomon which had accurate shells. The K2 unnatural are sick skates, and fit me perfectly. The frames are also excellent, and the wheels have held up just fine, but I'm only skating at parks. They are a little bit stiffer than older model K2 skates, but after a short break in have been very comfortable. My only complaint is that the sole plates are soft, and I don't think you can get a replacement. Since I only skate at the parks, they have held up just fine.

                                  You could also get some Salomons, Razors SL heel pads if stock are dust and wraparound sole plates by Andrew Kingerym
