    I need new shoes. I ride with a full, cycling specific orthotic made by Scott Peterson. My current
    shoes are Northwaves, but I don't like the fit of the forefoot. I have a narow heel however and the
    Northwave Evolution has a GREAT heel pocket that prevents heel lift even with the orthotic. My old
    Sidis aren't stiff enough. Plus, they don't have great heel retention. Otherwise fitwise they are
    fine. Diadora Veloces allow too much heel lift with the orthotic. I live in a fairly remote area and
    can't try on every brand. So, here's the question: What has reasonable forefoot roon and a great
    heel pocket? DMT? Nike? Help!! Thanks.

  2. Try Carnacs. They're fairly wide in the forefoot. All the Nikes I've used have not been that wide,
    but I gave up on them a number of years ago, so maybe things have changed.
