There are many people, both men and women who need to be careful when shopping for shoes. Women are usually more prone to having extra wide feet. If they have wide feet, then they will need to wear extra wide shoes for comfort and to avoid blisters when walking. There are lots of different branded extra wide shoes available. A popular brand on the UK market is Clarks.

Wide feet can be caused by a wide variety of problems. This includes genetics, pregnancy, and weight gain, just to name a few. If you have ever been told you have wide feet, regardless of the reason for it, it is imperative that you are careful when shopping for shoes.

It is not safe to try to force your wide foot into a narrow shoe. Doing so can have adverse effects on your feet. You could damage your feet, and leave behind lasting effects that do not easily subside. Wearing a shoe that is too narrow for your foot, will not only hurt your foot by doing so, but also cause you to have an awkward posture.

Your incorrect posture, can lead to even more serious issues, such as leg, foot, and joint issues, along with back pain. Men and women who choose to wear the wrong type of shoes for their wide feet will also experience calluses, blisters, and corns on their feet. This is a common problem that comes from not wearing extra wide shoes, when your feet require you to. Getting a size larger than your regular size is not the solution for the problem. The only solution is to purchase shoes that cater to your wider feet.
