I got a pair of these in white, really pleased with them, nice stiff sole and very comfortable, biggest plus for me is the three velcro straps - I'm not keen on mechanical closure.
The fit is wider than sidi and specialized so should be ok, also, as they're 2011 model the price is pretty good.

If you're struggling with the width, Scott shoes are very wide for their respective size. Could be worth a look.

I was using Dmt's Magnisium sole, but they snapped at the same time a couple of weeks ago. Bought some northwave , very light 200grms a shoe and a nice wide fit.

In terms of width fitting my Sidis in a Mega (wide fitting) have been great. Slightly wider than specialized for the same shoe size.

No idea what model they are but they are silver and cost about £120 discounted - £200 rrp.

I have wide feet and have had success with Specialized S-Works, Northwave Aerlite, and (currently) Mavic Zxellium.

Those are actually Giro Factors in disguise... :wink:

Chainreactioncycles has been selling out their last 2011 Giro models with good reductions. For example the Factor in black:

Tried and failed to order some Giro Prolights from CRC. They managed to send a wetsuit instead. Some computer issue as both items had the same sku. Waiting on credit return and have ordered fizik r3 from elsewhere instead.
