Lots of Samba love on this thread, but they don't work for me at all. Too narrow in the toe, too much arch support, and my heel slips out of them no matter how I tie them.

I mostly use Vans skateboard shoes, Chucks, and New Balance Minimus (some models of New Balance fit me well, but some don't at all).

My feet are moderately wide, but Chucks still work for me. The secret in fitting Chucks (for me) is to get my normal athletic shoe size, even though Chucks run long and end up being longer than any other shoes I wear. I find that the little extra length does not get in the way or cause any other problems (unless you are self-conscious about the length of your feet).

Guys with skinny feet might be able to size down in Chucks and get a size that matches the length of their other shoes, but if I did that my toes would die of strangulation.
