Understanding Width

The adage, “If the shoe fits, wear it,” holds a nugget of wisdom. A shoe that aligns with the contours of your feet can truly uplift your spirit. But, what does it mean to have wide feet, and how does it affect your shoe choices?

The Anatomy of Wide Feet

Having wide feet often means that the breadth of your feet is proportionally larger compared to the length. This unique foot shape calls for a shoe that accommodates its broad base, ensuring there isn’t any pinching or squeezing. Wide feet can be a natural foot shape or arise from conditions such as edema, bunions, or simply aging.
