Wide Width Shoes for Women | Drew Tuscany

Drew Tuscany

Drew Shoes is known for making quality, therapeutic comfort shoes in a wide range of sizes and widths.   Some Drew styles look a little too orthopedic for our taste, but we found a handful that are pretty stylish.  The Tuscany is a youthful, sparkly sneaker loaded with comfort features, and is available in sizes 5-13 and FIVE widths.  The Ashton bootie is available in sizes 5-13 and four widths and gets fab reviews.  I could see this lovely bootie becoming a footwear staple for many women with hard-to-fit feet. Drew footwear is available at Zappos, The Walking Company, and Amazon.

Wide Width Shoes for Women | Vaneli Ganet

Vaneli Ganet

The Vaneli Ganet has a flattering notched vamp that will help visually elongate a small, wide foot, and it comes in a fun leopard print in addition to navy and basic black.  Comfort plus: reviewers rave about how accommodating the Ganet is for feet with bunions, bone spurs and host of other foot issues.  (If this describes you, consider the version with a stretchy fabric vamp for extra comfort.)  Available in sizes 4-12 and four widths from Zappos, Amazon, and Shoebuy.

Rockport has long been a go-to comfort brand for both men and women with hard-to-fit feet.   Thankfully they’re offering more stylish options all the time, like this cute Kalila Perf bootie and Total Motion Pointed Toe pump.  Both come in sizes 5-11 and medium and wide widths.

For some folks (myself included), there’s just nothing like a Dansko Professional clog for all-day comfort and a chunky-funky-fashion vibe.   European size 35 should fit size 4 1/2-5 feet, and it’s available in three widths. Available at Zappos and Amazon.

Wide Width Shoes for Women | Munro Jillie

Munro Jillie

Munro is often our first recommendation in wide width shoes for women, or for women with especially small, long, or narrow feet (or any combination thereof). Their high quality, top-notch level of comfort and wide range of sizes and widths is almost unmatched.   One Munro style after another gets five-star online reviews, but right now we’re especially fond of the Munro Jillie, a cute sandal with trendy ghillie-style laces that may also help accommodate thicker feet. Available in sizes 4-14 and five widths from Nordstrom, and Zappos. Find a Munro retailer near you.

Do you have REALLY small (or large) feet?  Shoes of Prey might be just the right fit – both for your feet and your fashion sense.  Shoes of Prey come in an astonishing range of sizes (2-15!) and four widths.  This beautiful block-heel pump is just one example of many lovely Shoes of Prey styles available. Available at Nordstrom.

Wide Width Shoes for Women | Naturalizer Fae

Naturalizer Fae

Naturalizer is another one of our g0-to brands for hard-to-fit feet.  Almost all of their many styles some in a wide range of sizes and widths, and their price point is more budget-friendly than some other comfort brands.  This season we’re loving the Naturalizer Fae sandal, available in sizes 4-12, four widths, and a bouquet of lovely pastel colors in addition to basic black. Available at, Zappos, and Nordstrom. Find a Naturalizer retailer near you.

    I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS POST!! I wear a 7.5 but a wide width and I have been searching your archives for wide width brand recommendations so this is SUPER helpful!!!

    Great roundup! I have small but thankfully not wide feet; many of my friends who do have small & wide feet, including my mother, resort to buying shoes several sizes up (she wears a 6.5W and the length of her foot is the same as mine which fit into a 5M).

    One correction to your article though–a European size 35 is closer to a US size 5C (between B-medium and D-wide). Especially in comfort brands, Euro 35 doesn’t usually fit a US 4.5. I actually go up to a size 5.5 sometimes because one foot is slightly longer, and I’ve tried on a fair number of size 35 shoes that are TOO big (e.g. Ecco tends to run large and wide).

    It’s important to note that European – US shoe sizing doesn’t scale linearly. So a larger US size will usually “size up” when converting to European sizes, but smaller US sizes may need to “size down.”

    for each trend, please include a style that can ACCEPT ORTHTOICS.i have had 3 foot surgeries and must always wear orthtoics.

    I wear a size 5 US, and I really like Hotter and Naturalizer shoes. I also bought two pairs of Naot mary janes recently and they are great. Hotter and Naot both have removable insoles if you need orthotics.

    Thank you for this post. I have a small foot with a wide width.
    It is hard to find stylish shoes in my size. I am going to check out
    some of your suggestions!

    I wear a children’s size 3. I’m 28. I would love to wear shoes that don’t sparkle or light up. Or have a heel almost absent cause they don’t make high high heels for children. Also another issue is they are never wide enough. So I’m extremely limited to what I can wear. Usually never really satisfied with comfort or style of shoe. My feet are always hurting by mid-day. So any suggestions??
