I have the same problem, sorta wide, and big(a 14 or 48). Just try and go somewhere that you can try a lot of shoes. Northtowne in CR has quite a few. Also, there's a shop in Dubuque that has quite a few different shoes.
I wanted clipless and ended up spending more than I budgeted for just to get a wide shoe from Specialized(order direct from Specialized, not Northtowne). Specialized makes a number of wide width shoes.
Let me know your shoe size, and where you're at, maybe you can try mine.
