How to Shop for Wide Feet
COMFORTABLE SHOES = A HAPPY MINDSET
If you have wide feet when shopping keep these tips in mind:
👣 ASK FOR HELP:
Many shoe stores hold a selection of brands made for wide feet which may not be apparent when looking at the styles. When you find a brand that works for your feet and style be sure to remember it so you can seek it out again.
👡 KEEP STYLES SIMPLE:
Both from the point of not calling attention to your feet and not overburdening with features that will make them look wider. This is especially important when it comes to straps – two is enough.
👣 LOOK FOR ADJUSTABLE FEATURES
This includes features such as elastic sides and adjustable straps.
👡 TOES SHAPE
Wide feet call for wider toe shapes so don’t be tempted into a pointy toe style thinking it will slenderize the shape of your foot unless you enjoy style over comfort. 😬
👣 HEEL HEIGHT & STYLE
Wide feet look best in low to medium height heels and styles that are medium to wide. Slender heels such as stilettos can look awkward under a wide foot.
👡 IF IT’S TOO TIGHT…
Keep looking. Don’t rely on a shoe to stretch and those with stitching around the edge of the vamp will not stretch. Suede and supple leathers may give a little but patent leather won’t because of the shiny coating applied to it.
👣 SHOP IN THE AFTERNOON
By this time of day, your feet will a little wider and fitting shoes for long term comfort will result in a higher success rate.
