Catering to All Foot Sizes

As the fashion world begins to adapt to bodies of all shapes and sizes, footwear has been gradually following suit. Pioneering this progression, brands like Orthofeet and Propet are leading the way, crafting shoes and sandals designed to fit every foot.

Orthofeet, renowned for its commitment to comfort, and Propet, a brand that combines fashion and function, have extended their ranges to accommodate wide feet. They provide a spectrum of widths, from 2E to 4E, ensuring that all individuals can experience the joy of comfortable, well-fitting footwear.

Understanding the Difference: 2E vs 4E Widths

When it comes to shoe widths, there’s a significant distinction to be made between the 2E and 4E. These designations are not arbitrary but signify two unique categories that serve specific foot types.

The 2E width, also known as Wide (W), is designed for individuals with slightly broader feet than average. These shoes provide extra room in the shoe box to accommodate the extra width. On the other hand, the 4E width, commonly referred to as Extra Wide (XW or WW), is intended for individuals with considerably wider feet. These shoes provide ample space in the width and offer the maximum amount of room in the shoe box, ensuring the utmost comfort and fit for wider feet. So, choosing between a 2E and 4E ultimately comes down to the level of width you require for your unique feet.

What Sets These Brands Apart?

  1. Orthofeet: Orthofeet takes pride in designing shoes for maximum comfort and relief. Their anatomical orthotic insoles and ergonomic soles provide excellent arch support and cushioning, making them perfect for those with wide feet.
  2. Propet: Known for their blend of style and comfort, Propet offers a wide range of footwear with adjustable straps and removable footbeds, catering to the needs of those with wide feet and offering a customized fit.

“Comfort and style need not be mutually exclusive. Brands like Orthofeet and Propet are challenging this notion with a range of footwear that combines both brilliantly.”
