The ones you buy will either fit or not. The only way to know for sure is to try them on. For sure the "wide" FootJoys will not fit the same as "medium" ones. So if you're certain that the "medium" fit properly I'd think sticking to "medium" is best. It's not just a label, the shoe will definitely be a different width.

Keep in mind also that FootJoy uses several different lasts (foot-shaped forms around which the shoe is built) among their different models of golf shoe. So some will be narrower in the front and wider in the heel, some the opposite, some more curved than others. That has as big an effect on fit as "medium" vs. "wide".

M fits me better than Wide.  try online at 3balls.com.  i actually just received the FJ Contours today with the BOA technology.  they fit fantastically and i only paid $63 with free shipping.  

also i will tell you that the reason i bought them is because i was wearing a poorly fitted Nike shoe for about 3 months and it caused a stress fracture in my foot and i have not been able to play golf for 2 weeks now and still taking time off.  for a period of that time i even had a slight limp.  so, make sure the shoes you get fit as good as they can, because a foot injury can put you out for a while.

footjoys run fairly wide in many instances (with exception of the Synr-G in my opinion) compared with the Nike and Adidas brand.

Try them on with the style of socks you'll be wearing before purchasing just to be sure.

The FootJoys I've owned run particularly wide in the heel. Which is why I don't wear them any more. If I get the "wide" width, which is necessary to give my toes enough room, the middle and back part of the shoe lets my foot move around too much. There are some lasts that are bit fuller in the forefoot and snugger in the heel (maybe one is called "Laser" IIRC) and those work OK but still not as good as Eccos which are pretty much designed from the get-go for feet like mine.

get what you need.  Too wide and you feel like you are sliding and no balance.

I did the same thing I bought a pair of Classics when they were getting rid of all of them and the only one they had in my size was a wide.  I bought them anyway and they are a little to wide.  They are not uncomfortable by any means but I can definitely tell a difference in them vs. the medium width.  It is not to bad for me as I am really in between the medium and the wide.  The mediums are a touch to narrow but the wide are to wide.  If the mediums fit perfect then I would say the wide will be way to wide.

They will stretch correct?  So better to start narrow.

I've never had a pair of golf shoes get any bigger than they are the first time I put them on. Well, when they get slap worn out the area around the heel sags but other than that, nothing.

My feet, conversely, have definitely stretched over the last 10 years or so. Used to be somewhere in the 10-1/2 to 11 range in most brands and now 12's tend to be a little on the snug side.

I've had success with a pair of Footjoys in a wide size that were a half-size smaller than my normal size. But I only went with them after trying them on to make sure this would work. Otherwise I would only buy my standard size. Plus, as Fourmyle says above, different FJs have different fits regardless of width. More than any other brand of shoe that I've found, you have to try on FJs before you buy.

Yeah, they must have as many different lasts in the FootJoy range as Nike, Ecco, Adidas and Etonic combined.

i've always typically worn 1/2 sz larger in nike bc they always tend to be narrower fit. i have short but wide feet so it's the only way i could get into some shoes without it being extremely uncomfortable up front. with the folks that make wide sizes though, i can wear my actual size.

+1.  They'll likely stretch and FJs do tend to run wide, so I'd go M.
