Finding wide shoes for women on the high street can sometimes be a challenge. Despite the fact that women’s feet are getting wider, some retailers have been slow to realise this and still insist on making their footwear in a standard D width fitting.

While it might be tempting to try and squeeze into a pair of shoes that are too small or slim, experts warn that such a decision could leave you with lifelong foot problems. Buying a larger shoe size just to get the width is another mistake that we often make. However, as well as causing corns and blisters, wearing a shoe that’s too long is dangerous as it can cause you to trip.

If you need a wider fitting shoe, you may need to look for a niche retailer such as Cosyfeet. We specialise in footwear for people with very wide or swollen feet. Our women’s shoes come in an extra roomy EEEEE+ fitting and are adjustable so that you can get the perfect fit.
