I have more of a square shaped toes/foot, so I always have a little discomfort in that area, but right out of the box, I wore these for nine hours straight standing with minimal discomfort.

    Good American

    Promising review: "These are absolutely my most favorite boots. They are beautiful and the quality is amazing. I will say though... I got the wide even though it said you should if you wear a size 14 or higher. I’m 5’8 wear a size 9, but have thicker thighs so I decided after looking at the size chart to get wide.

    Promising review: "I have really wide feet so I don’t have a problem with my feet sliding through the shoe. They're actually very comfortable. I have had them on for about an hour with absolutely no discomfort. With other shoes, I know with the first few steps. I think that because the plastic strap stretches these are perfect for wide feet. If you have narrow feet I DO NOT suggest buying these." —Beautiful one

    Promising review: "If you have a wide foot, you will fall in love. I put this shoe on and wanted to cry. My feet are short and pretty wide with high arches. Shoes NEVER fit me correctly. Pumps always are too long by the time I find my width, and then are so painful to wear/hard to walk in. I ordered these in the ginger snakeskin (note, they have a slightly iridescent sheen to them) and they are amazing. They fit me like a glove; I literally felt like Cinderella. It is so hard to find reasonably priced and fashionable wide width dress shoes... not to mention so well made." —Chootie

I have wide-width foot and it is very hard to find a pair of shoes that doesn’t require break-in period. This dress shoes not only cute, fashionable, but also surprisingly very comfortable. I took train to work so the trip requires me to walk and stand a lot. Right now it’s 4 p.m. and I still have the shoes on my feet. Good gracious lord. I might as well get another pair in red, because I love them too much!!" –Mama Panda

    Promising review: "I have wide calves and wide feet, so boots are a big headache to find that fit and look good. I was hesitant to buy these because a lot of the pictures are from people with smaller figures. I ordered a 7.5 and it was perfect for my usual size 8 feet. I’m impressed. It stretches at the top and fits great! Looks expensive too. It doesn’t have the greatest traction, but there’s still some grip. I feel put together and would suggest for other girls who are my size to NOT hesitate! Good find!" ipenggg

    Promising review: "I love my natives. I did struggle with the sizing as I have very wide feet, bunions, and little shoe options always. So annoying. However, my kids love their natives and I wanted to have my own. I'm a nanny, and I need hassle-free, universal shoes so I can be ready for whatever is in store for me. I’m usually in-between sizes 7.5 and 8. The 8 is almost always too long for me but I need it for the width. Anyway, I had ordered a 7 first: too tight. The 8 was so much better. Since my feet are wide it took a few days to break in, but it finally gave. I hope if you have wide feet like me, this helps you with sizing! I’d stick to your normal size. Even with my kids — I had to stick to their current actual sizes are getting the next size was really too big. They flop around and the back comes up." —AMS

    Promising review: "LOVE these flats. I have wide feet and long toes. Normal flats are too short by the toes but these cover my toes perfectly. They say memory foam bottom but it's very thin and doesn't provide a ton of support. I personally do not mind but I know others do. I am normally an 8.5. I tried them on in a store and they fit juuuust right. I was afraid they would stretch out though so I came online and bought the 8 on here on Amazon. They're perfect. They stay on my feet, don't squeeze too tight, and even after stretching they don't fall off. The material is stretchy, has a good amount of give, which is my favorite part. They move with your feet and don't cause blisters at all. I also sprayed mine with water repellent and it works amazingly. I've stepped in puddles with these and nothing gets in. Best flats I have ever tried." –Amelia Rose

I'd wear them to church if I could lol I wear them to the beach, in the water, to the store and my favorite place to wear them is the amusement park! I spend hours on my feet at amusement parks with my kids and no matter what shoes I wore, I was always in tears by the end of the day from my feet hurting so bad. I wore these to Sea World and I could've walked around hours more. For the first time ever, my feet did not hurt! I'm buying more colors. I typically wear a 9 1/2 and bought the 9-91/2 and the shoes fit perfectly. I have wide feet as well and the width was great even though it's labeled as narrow width." —Crystal

These slippers are perfect in every way!!! I like to wear socks and there is plenty of room with or without and they are not sloppy because of the memory foam. The soles are durable and flexible.

These are by far my favorite shoes of all time. They truly feel like you are wearing slippers. I also have a high arch and need support. I have walked all day in these and there was no breaking-in period at all. Originally I ordered a size larger and had to return them for my regular size. Customer service is excellent.
