Finding the best shoes for wide feet

When you have wide feet you may think you are in the minority and when you look for stylish shoes you can feel very underwhelmed by the choices available. Read this article to help you find the best shoes for wide feet which provide comfort and style. We can prove you don't need to compromise!

We conducted a survey of nearly 900 women in the UK and found that over 50% felt they need a wider fit shoe. Chances are this is you, and if this is the case, or if you have bunions and find a wider shoe fit offers more comfort, then read on for some useful advice as to the best style of shoe to wear for maximum comfort.

Here we show you how we have created some of our designs with space, width, and comfort in mind, whilst maintaining elegance and style.


The open-sided style is great for wide feet because they offer a more relaxed fit than a fully closed shoe, especially if the shoe is made of suede, which is very soft. This style is a popular choice for bunion sufferers who need width at the point of the bunion.

We make two different styles with open sides; a flat and a mid-heel.

Our Indy extra-wide fit shoes are beautiful yet versatile. Great for wearing during the day but also really elegant with a sleek evening trouser suit. The open sides make this shoe cool for the summer but, when worn with tights, they are just as popular for winter wear too.

Our Penelope extra wide fit heels are made in this style and this is one of the reasons they are our best selling shoes. The Penelope shoe has a sleek yet manageable 6cm heel. The memory foam padded insole gives the ball of the foot important additional comfort which is required when wearing heels.

Our Star extra-wide fit platform sandals are killer heels without being heels that kill! At 9cm they are high but the 2cm platform gives additional height without the extra extension of the foot arch. Their super-soft memory foam padded insoles mean you can wear them comfortably all day long.

Our Clare shoes have a rounded toe shape, which can offer a little more width in the toe box than a shoe that tapers to a point (pointed toe shoes).

Our Olivia wide fit pumps and Fern wide fit sling-backs are hugely popular because they have a squarer toe, which also offers more space in the toe box.

Many women like to wear pointed-toe shoes, which are very fashionable and stylish, so we have made our pointed toe shoes in a very comfortable EEE wide fit to compensate for the fact that they taper to a point which can make them feel tight. The extra width in the toe box for all of our pointed toe shoes means feet have plenty of space without being squashed.

Our flat pointed toe options are our lovely extra wide fitting, VivienneLaura and Sandy shoes, which are all made in an extra-wide EEE fitting. They also have memory foam padded insoles and breathable arch supports which make them extremely comfortable.

Completely flat shoes can be bad for your feet and can cause collapsed arches but our shoes have a 1cm heel that offers good support for your heels.

People with bunions know that it is important to choose shoes that have a wider toe box to accommodate the width of the bunion (or bunionette), as well as an upper that is designed so that the top part of the shoe doesn't cut across the bunion, rubbing it and making it painful. Our Helena, Lisa and Lola heels and our wide fit flats have a higher cut vamp (upper part of the shoe) which completely covers the bunion and the leather is really soft and flexible, offering unparalleled comfort for day-long wear. We have introduced a new Smooth & Soothe hidden comfort panel in the toe box which offers seamless comfort for bunions and sensitive toe joints.
