As my journeys involve a lot of walking around, shoes have always been one of the pieces of clothing I spend the most money on. The fact that I have wider feet than what is considered the general standard has in the past made finding inexpensive and well-fitting shoes quite a difficult task. In recent years however, the high demand for wide fitting shoes has been noticed by shoe manufacturers and retailers and has resulted in there being an improvement in the choice available for people with larger feet. So much so that it is quite easy to find a large variety of casual mens wide fitting shoes, as well as ones for ladies.
With that last sentence in mind, it is worth remembering that it isn’t just men who suffer when it comes to finding shoes to accommodate their wide feet and that women equally deserve to feel comfortable and look good. Gone are the days when, regardless of your gender, you had to try desperately to squeeze and contort your feet into shoes that were far too narrow and far too small for your feet, just so that you looked good. It is now very easy to find fashionable and stylish shoes, no matter whether you have wide or narrow feet.
Whether you want a casual pair of wide fitting shoes for everyday use or something a bit smarter for work and formal occasions, you will not have a hard time finding a pair to suit you. Obviously for the purpose of my travellers finding a good walking, all-rounder of a shoe was a must, and thankfully in the last few years, this has been an easier task than it ever was. There are also wide fitting shoes and insoles for men and women available for various sports shoes. Running shoes and other trainers for wider feet come with the same breathability and flexibility you would expect to find in the standard, narrower variations. This obviously means that sportsmen and women can take part in their favourite activity without fear of doing damage to their feet.
When it comes to women’s wide fitting shoes there is a wide selection of styles and designs, from simple and low heeled flat shoes such as court shoes to high heels and even stilettos. Women will even find it quite easy when they need to buy a wide fitting boot.
As well as there being a wide variety of styles and designs available, there are also a wide range of colours. We are past the time when wide fitting shoes were considered to be a very niche product and were only available in the most drab and boring of colours. So even if you are fond of bright and loud colours or prefer a smarter colour, but not black, you will be able to have what you want.
So if you have wider feet, you no longer need to feel like an outcast or that your needs and desires are not being catered for. You can proudly find shoes that will not only match your overall outfit, a particular activity whether it’s something sporting, casual or formal and that are made in the colours and designs that appeal to you.
