Finding Wide Width Shoes: A Guide For The Wide  -  footed

Do You Need Wide Shoes But Have A Hard Time Finding Them?

I once had the same problem. I have very wide feet, and I need wide shoes in order to have them fit my feet properly. However, wide width shoes are fairly hard to find without doing some research first. You see, not every company makes the wide versions of each shoe, sandal, or boot. Therefore, you need to rely on other sources to learn which brands will fit your needs.

Finding The Most Comfortable Shoes:

If you have a specialized need, such as wide width shoes, shopping for the most comfortable shoes isn't as easy as it would be for someone that can wear just about any shoe as long as it's regular (aka "medium") width. Fortunately, I've found an article that contains a bunch of helpful information on how to find shoes that fit right; whether it be wide or extra wide versions. This article lists a large amount of companies that sell shoes in wider widths so you don't have to search extensively for the footwear that fits you properly.

How To Properly Use A Shoe Width Chart

Did you know that most people don't even know the proper way to use a shoe width chart? That's right. Furthermore, many people have wide feet, and don't even know it. These same people are forcing their feet into the very cramped and confined areas of regular width shoes!

Have you ever felt like your feet were beings smashed inside your shoes or boots? Have the sides of your shoes ever pinched your feet as you walk, run, or jog? Do your feet hurt after just a short time of wearing your shoes?

If you've answered "yes" to any of the above questions, chances are that you've been wearing footwear that is too narrow for your feet. Not only is this painful, but it isn't healthy either.

Your feet need to have proper arch support and to be able to move freely and naturally inside your shoes. If they can't, many different problems such as blisters, boils, calluses, and even back pain can ensue.

The bottom line is that if the shoe fits, wear it. If it doesn't fit, don't wear it! You should always know the proper width of your feet in order to have knowledge of the best type of shoes to wear.

For a helpful list of brands that offer wide and extra wide width shoes, personal reviews on the most comfortable shoes, and even a video that shows you how to properly use a shoe width chart from the comfort of your own home, check out this solid write up of wide shoes!
