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.

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.

I've always stuck with Stride Rites for Sebastian's XW feet. I am hoping that they will slim down to a regular W so we have more options!

Both my kids have my dad's feet (small & wide - my dad wears an 8EEE)! So, we struggle to find shoes wide enough for Gavin (Claire still mainly wears soft shoes or Ecco lace ups). Last summer we got him some Crocs - and they were awesome! He can easily put them on himself, they are very wide, wash up easily and breathe well. We'll be getting him another pair this spring. I know Payless sells their version of Crocs for about 1/2 the price...
