Fashionable Wide Width Shoes: Your Official Buying Guide

Snagging women’s wide width shoes with style is no easy feat (pun-intended.) Just because your soles are slightly larger than average, that doesn’t mean you have to let the petite feet have all the fun. You deserve shoes that fit you properly and look good too.

Retailers are becoming more aware of the plight of women with a wide shoe size and have been making appropriate accommodations, from cute wide width booties to fashionable flats. While the selection isn’t perfect for every brand yet, you can still get the shoes you want.

Here are a couple of tips to help you find the perfect pair of women’s wide width shoes.

Looking for Wide Width Shoes in Leather

Real leather and suede are great for wider feet because the materials will stretch over time. These luxury materials also make for excellent women’s wide width dress shoes. If wide width boots or shoes in leather don’t fit you perfectly when you first try them on, they certainly will after they’ve been broken in. Of course, this doesn’t mean you should buy shoes that are too small for you. But if they’re slightly tight in the toe, leather shoes will mold around them as you wear them in.

If you don’t want to have to break them in, you can try shoe stretchers to create some room in a wide shoe size without being uncomfortable while wearing them.

Taos offers great options for stylish, women’s wide width dress shoes in premium leather. Our Trulie Collections and Wedge Collections include a variety of options for women looking for a wide shoe size without sacrificing style and luxury.
