All wide-footed women will know the struggle of forcing your seemingly gargantuan foot into an impossibly narrow, but irresistibly beautiful, shoe.


Why is it that most wide shoes are absolutely HEINOUS or utterly boring? Why are we punished for having sturdy, able feet? It just isn't fair, which is why we've rounded up some damn cute shoes for you to get excited about.

Not all wide-foot problems are the same!

Some people have high insteps, bunions, thick/dense feet, long toes, thick ankles, wide calves, high arches, no arches, or a combination of these problems. If you have one or more of these features you should talk to your doctor about what shoes work best for your needs. After all, it's proper footwear for proper foot care.

Explore plus-size websites.

Whether you identify as plus-size or not, websites that cater to larger women also tend to have a much better selection of cute shoes for wide feet and wide calves. Both Torrid and SimplyBe boast great collections of wide shoes.

Many designers and companies are adding sizes for wide feet.

Zappos has always had an extensive collection, but you'll have to wade through mountains of fugly shoes before getting to some cute ones. Nevertheless, they do carry wider sizes of designer shoes, like Stuart Weitzman's extended sizes, which can be notoriously hard to find in brick-and-mortar stores. Asos was a pleasant surprise, having an entire section for wide feet! Huzzah!
