If your feet are very wide or swollen, it stands to reason that you will need to wear wide fitting shoes. But are some wider-fitting styles more suited to certain feet than others?

Possibly. If you have problems with your toes, such as hammer toes, you will probably be more comfortable in a shoe that has a deep and roomy toe area. It’s also worth checking the toe area for seams as these could rub or irritate sore toes. If your toes are exceptionally sensitive, you may want to opt for footwear that is made from fabric.

If you have a bunion, one option is to try a shoe that’s made from a stretchy material such as Elastane. This will avoid putting any painful pressure on the joint. If you need to wear an orthotic or splint, look for footwear that is especially deep or has a removable footbed or insole.
