What is considered a wide foot?

What is considered a wide foot? One tell-tale sign of wide feet is if your feet feel cased-in in every pair of shoes. Once you measure your foot, you can tell for sure. If your foot width is 4 1/16” in a size 9 shoe or 3 3/16” in a size 7, then you are considered to have wide feet (C/D).

How do I know if my foot is wide? The width of your feet is the distance between the two widest parts of your foot. This is likely a single measurement in one area—at the base of your toes, called the ball width. This is the measurement between the big toe joint and the small toe joint.
