I am having a mare with trainers! I try them on in the shop and they seem ok but then I wear them to the gym and end up being rubbed, pinched and sore!
I do have a wide foot but not extraordinarily so. Can anyone recommend a style or braNd that suits wider feet?

yes new balance is wide, but you know you should buy trainers at least a size or even 2 bigger than your actual shoe size, right? the feel will swell up when exercising and there should be enough space for that.

I didn't know that Heidi.

I don't wear trainers often, don't currently own a pair but will bear that in mind next time I'm shopping for some.

I have wide feet and have been using a pair of Asics (the gel ones) for the past year with no probs, running a couple of times a week. I did buy half a size bigger, maybe that's why they're so comfy, I didn't know you were supposed to

I've got wide feet and I'm a PE teacher so need 'em comfy. I use Nike, my current ones are running trainers but in the past I've mostly had cross trainers. as I'm a tightarse economical I usually buy 'last year's' colours (well obv the teenagers care, but I don't) because they;re always cheaper! grin

I have wide feet and second the recommendation for Asics. Would never buy any other brand now, am a total convert. They are super-springy even after lots of wear and they don't give me a ridge of crusty hard skin on the edge of my foot by my big toe.

I work amongst other things also a fitness instructor and have loads of trainers and yes, really, they have to be bigger. I'm a standard size 5 otherwise, but all my trainers are 6-6,5. If they are just the right size when trying on and will pinch when working out, then they are simply too small.

Thanks for all the replies! Didn't know about buying a bigger size but I guess that does make sense! A whole size and a half though? Does that not male for tripping up?
Will look at new balance too, thanks!
