My experience is the same as Mr Leigh's. I also have mutant-wide feet and use a M40 in the Bikila LS, but I use the size 41 for the VivoBarefoot Evo 2, Neo Trail, and RA.

I use the VivoBarefoot RA as a casual shoe and the Evo 2 for running. I have wide feet and they fit just right.  For NB Minimus, I had to go with the EE size.

Not sure if sealing that with Shoe Goo would be a permanent fix.  When I run in my NB MT10s in wintertime, I wear SealSkinz waterproof socks.  I think I got my pair for about $30 two winters ago.

Ok, that's what I thought.
And regarding sizing - anyone who can relate to the other mentioned models I own?

I'm a size 41 for the. Neo Trail, Evo 2, and RA and all three fit the same for me.  I use the insole with all three.

Try Altra.

I recommend Altra as well. Those are my long distance running shoes, for half marathon or longer.  I use the Altra Instinct for road races -- in fact I used it yesterday for a post-Thanksgiving half marathon -- and the Altra Lone Peak for trail races.  They are very comfortable and are zero drop, and have a wide toebox for my mutant-wide feet.

I use the MT10. It took me a bit to get used to the 4mm heel drop, but I like using it now for trails.  Decent traction on the trails, and they feel nice and airy to me.

For cold/wet weather running, I switch over to my VivoBarefoot Evo 2s and throw on a pair of SealSkinz waterproof socks.  It does the job and keeps the water off my feet.  I did a New Years Eve half marathon trail run last year with the SealSkinz and the Evo 2s and had no problems at all with the puddles and running water.

Also, does anyone wear the instincts without socks? seems more confortable without but i didn't know if that was a good idea. 

How do you wash altras?

I usually wear them with socks because I'm between sizes. 

For washing, it's best to use a sink or a large bucket with a little detergent, then air dry for a day or two, depending on the humidity at your location.

I haven't noticed a cracking sound with my Instincts.

Have you tried this alternate lacing to see if it gives you a little more room on the top of the foot?
