I've got big wide feet (47s) and the Scarpa Thunder is the best shoe I've ever used. Bouldering, sport, trad, tiny edges, smearing, all exceptional.
Quite stiff, but super comfortable, I would use Thunders over 5.10 Anasazi laceups, Galileos, La Sportiva Murias, (all shoes I have owned) which offer similar performance but much less comfort. Very good heel hooking performance, and a good price. Vibram XS Grip is up there with Stealth onx in my opinion.
Stretched a little, but size comfortably, they don't need to be tight.
