I'm so happy to see this topic! I used to be able to find shoes at Payless, but lately even they have less wide widths. I had luck recently at, believe it or not, J C Penney's- I HAD to have some black pumps recently and ran a whole mall, plus outlying stores, and the only place I found what I wanted was Penney's. Everywhere I went said "try online." I thought that was such a terrible idea, but I did end up trying and loving Zappo's. Anxious to try some of the other resources, especially the shoe stretcher!

Someone asked if the width went down when the weight goes down. For me, I've always had wide feet even when slim. Certain styles are more forgiving when I weigh less, but for things like pumps that are made narrow, I can't even consider a non wide width. Clog type shoes, I can get by with maybe a half size larger and the width works. Oddly in tennis shoes, width is not an issue. I guess the squishy sides make it work.
