hiking shoe-which manufacturer makes the widest toe box?

Thanks for reaching out!

In terms of hiking shoes, Keen and Merrell are brands well known for their roomier toe boxes. A shoe like the Keen Targhee III Waterproof Hiking shoe or the Merrell Moab 2 Waterproof Hiking shoe could be good options. Both of those models come in a 'wide' size as well.

Many people, myself included, use a trail running shoe when hiking. I do not measure at a 'wide' size, however I have a very high volume foot so often find myself using 'wide' shoes. I really appreciate the roomy toe boxes of the Altra Lone Peak Trail Running shoe and the Altra Olympus 4 Trail Running shoe. Another option could be the Hoka One One Challenger ATR 5 Trail Running shoe, which has room in the toe box but also is available in a 'wide' size.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!
