I've tried to play in these twice and they were extremely painful. I have a wide foot but usually a D is plenty wide enough. I've had the prior version of this shoe and it was great. This hasn't broken in yet so hopefully it will give some but I was in so much pain I had to change in to my prior pair to finish the match.
