Not very many shoe manufacturers make special widths (wide and narrow), so for people with hard to fit feet, New Balance is one of the best choices. The prices at the factory outlet are terrific, about 1/2 the retail price. Many shoes are marked as irregular, but often the irregularity is so slight that you can't even tell what it is. They sell non shoe items, but those don't seem to be quite as big a bargain as the shoes. The location may be a little tricky the first time around, and it doesn't appear to be easily accessible via public transportation. Much of the store is self-service, but there are salespeople around and willing to help if you need assistance.
