It seems that the fashion world has finally caught up with the fact that people come in all shapes and sizes – as well as offering a range of sizes for clothes and lingerie, they have now moved onto the shoe world, where as well as different sizes, you can now also get shoes in a wider fit. Yes, wide fitting shoes are now becoming available at a range of different retailers, which is good news for those of us who need a little extra room.
Gone are the days when we would have to squeeze our feet into too-tight shoes that would pinch and rub our poor feet!
Wide fitting shoes are great for people who suffer from having wider feet, but also for those who suffer from swollen feet, tender bunions or foot conditions. They’re also great for those who have jobs which keep them on their feet all day – normal fitting shoes may seem fine at the beginning of the day but after running about all day long, many people find that their feet swell up, and their shoes fast become uncomfortable.
Luckily, it’s not all about practicality and although wider fitting shoes used to be quite basic, they now come in all sorts of styles so you can keep up with the latest fashions as well as looking after your feet.
Many retailers now offer wide fitting shoes across their brands, which means that most styles will now come in a wide fitting alternative, so you can still wear those hot heels or pretty pumps without having to worry about getting blisters or sore feet.
It’s also worth keeping in mind that some materials are more comfortable than others – it’s worth paying a bit more for materials like leather, which will last longer and have more give, than getting something cheaper that won’t help your sore feet.
