Five Shoes for Wide Feet

Five Shoes for Wide Feet

Oct 30th 2019

It can be a pain finding wide-fitting shoes that are both stylish and comfortable, so we did the heavy lifting for you.

Women’s oxfords, flats, and boots are here and ready to take over your ensemble thanks to their go-with-everything appeal. Our top picks of the season are shoes that run wide for a little extra room! Blending comfort and style, they offer additional stability and an ample profile to support the arches and maximize comfort. Feet come in all shapes and sizes. Narrow, medium, wide, thin, bony, narrow heel, high arch or flat feet are just a few of the possible foot types. Women’s shoe styles are typically tighter and more narrow than men’s shoes, causing a host of issues. Common medical problems associated with restrictive footwear include discomfort when walking, plantar fasciitis, blisters, hammer toes, painful bunions and corns. Feet change over time. They may get wider or longer from being on your feet, with age, or after pregnancy. We’ve highlighted five trendy solutions below.

Thierry Rabotin wide shoes offer the same handcrafted support you love and expect from the Italian label. A Hanig’s exclusive, the Zeke 7813 oxford shoe arrives in black suede or printed patent leather. Both versions designed with waxed laces and reinforced paneling. A textile heel insert and tongue help soften the interior. The rounded toe allows the forefoot to spread and bend naturally. Poron® memory foam supplies a soothing step-in feel. To underscore its retro aesthetic, pair the Thierry Rabotin Zeke 7813 with a pleated skirt, opaque tights, and a printed blouse.

Blundstone’s 585 and 1448 Chelsea boots are classic styles. The 1448 ankle boot is constructed of black leather with brogue perforation framing stretch gussets to the sides of the shaft. Two branded pull loops make this boot easy to wear this season. The 585 boot sports a distressed leather upper defined by tonal elastic panels, dual pull-on tabs, and contrast top-stitching. Both women’s boots built on top of a cushioned mid-sole and slip-resistant TPU out-sole for durability. Style either ankle booties with a utilitarian jacket and high-waisted chino pants. Sling a belt bag across your chest so you can adult in style.

Shoes with removable inserts are all about giving you the option to customize your footwear depending on your needs. The 301664-6200 and 301657-7001 Piacenza flats from  Hassia are versatile and on-trend. Captured with a metallic leopard print, they both share roomy almond-shaped toe boxes, slight wedge heels, and saw-tooth rubber soles. The 301664-6200 oxford flaunts ribbon laces and silver-tone eyelets while the 301657-7001 slip-on comes with a suede counter and elastic band across the vamp. We’re dialing up the edginess of the slip-on in an oversized sweater and leather pencil skirt. Tone down the oxford shoe with a casual jumpsuit on the weekend.
