Hi.

Hope you could put a few suggestions my way.

Basically I am after a new pair of trainers.

I have wide feet - 4E - and have been perfectly fine on new balance 940 [Size 10]; which I have had for nearly a year.

Had a gait done at sweatshop and they put me on 1080V2 as they didnt stock the 860s. Done a few runs in them and the last run I done I had to stop as my right foot hurt. In comparison I done a 4miler last night in my 940s and they were faultless. 

Today I went to run and become and tried on the 860V2 2Es and they were just like my 940s - albeit too tight.

They dont stock the 4E version, and I am finding out that they are very hard to get hold of.

I also tried on Mizuno Wave Inspire 8, but found that I didnt like the wavy form of the shoe on my left foot.

Any advice?

MTIA.

If you're happy with your current shoes, know they work for you and find them comfortable, why change?  Whenever I find a shoe I like I stick with it until I can't get them any more.   Just buy another pair the same - a quick google of New Balance 940 4E shows plenty of suppliers have them in stock in a size 10, e.g.:

(No connection with any of those shops, they just happened to be on the first page of Google).
