    Running & Cycling Shoes

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    My feet aren't getting any smaller and it's time to get rid of (some of my) shoes that don't fit.

    2007 Specialized Torch size 40 with #1 varus wedge insoles, plus the original (unused) insoles. Well used but plenty of life still in them. Free.

    2011 Altra Intuition size 11, 50 miles with "Support" insoles, "Strengthen" insoles are unused. I really wanted to love these shoes, but they're just too narrow for my #9 herring boxes. $50 shipped.

    Bump. Note the Altras are not at all narrow per se - in fact one of the things that attracted me to this shoe is the square toe box. They would be fine for someone with B-width or even slightly wider feet. They're just not okay for my EE-width feet.

    They are also not a minimalist shoe, they have plenty of cushion for running on gravel roads, but they are zero heel/toe drop, which is WONDERFUL.

    Not to jump in on Oak's thread, but what size do you need? I've got two pair of the same shoes that don't fit me for the same reasons they don't fit Oakleaf. I need to check, but I think I have both an 7.5 and an 8. Neither were ever worn.

    I wear a 9.5, so they are too small for me... Good thought though!

    Cycling shoes are spoken for. Altras are still available.

    It's so nice knowing that shoes that are too small for me are too big for everyone else.
