Depending on what size you need, new balance has shoes with the flexible rubber sole that come in extra and even extra extra wide. Here are two of the styles.

I have no idea what the see kai run shoes are, but I was going to recommend New Balance They've been awesome shoes for my boys. They have my wide feet and my 2nd is especially chunky (feet). We love the new balance so much, that I've got the same style in nearly every size. We can usually get them on sale for $19.99 @ JC Penneys.

besides JoShoes (soft shoes) for ds the only thing he could wear for the longest time was payless wide shoes or stride rite xw

My ds has super wide feet with a high instep.Very chunky! I tried TONS of shoes from online sites that claimed they would fit wide feet. We ended up having to return them all. The only shoes I have found that worked for him were these:

soft shoes- Moss Feet Shoes
semi soft shoes- See Kai Run
sneakers and hikers- Stride Rite (XW)

I love them all!

I did also find a pair of extra wide at payless once but haven't found anything acceptable there again. I am going to look for the New Balance people are suggesting though.

Hopefully as he grows his feet will thin a little so I can try some of the cute shoes I see on others!

Lil Jo's soft sole shoes seems to run wide. We also use Stride Rite (XW) shoes. I've been wanting to try See Kai Run but decided to get the Stride Rites since we have a local store.

Re: shoes for chunky wide feet ...best ones ??

Both of my boys have wide feet. We tend to go to a stride rite outlet - it's the only place I can consistantly get shoes that fit their feet. I've tried a bunch of other places, but stride rite is the only one that actually fits their feet correctly.

we really like sketchers, although they dont have a very flexible sole.
