Wide stance is all proper foot position. Incorrect foot position can stress the knees. Wide stance is also harder on the hips. I'm not a fan of wide stance unless you're using gear. My opinion is train with a comfortable stance at all times.

Remember that Louie Simmons and the boys are suing gear and AAS, and are squatting 900+. They're playing an entirely different ball game. I would focus on mastering a comfortable stance first.
