A few things to consider. "Wide" has no specific meaning between brands or even models.

The Horrorscope is a great example. The 151 Wide is 25.7 at the waist which is only .5 cm wider that the same deck in standard. In the Rome Garage Rocker (for instance) the difference between normal and wide is 1 cm and the 151 wide in that deck is 26 cm. Wide decks range from the low 25 cm range to the mid 27 cm range (at the waist).

If you have a minute, please measure your foot using the method below:

Kick your heel (barefoot please, no socks) back against a wall. Mark the floor exactly at the tip of your toe (the one that sticks out furthest - which toe this is will vary by rider). Measure from the mark on the floor to the wall. That is your foot length and is the only measurement that you will want to use. Measure in centimeters if possible, but if not, take inches and multiply by 2.54 (example: an 11.25 inch foot x 2.54 = 28.57 centimeters).
