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 many inches makes a wide foot? So to put it all together, let’s say you measure your foot’s length as 9-1/2 inches long; that gives you a basic U.S. women’s shoe size of 8. If you then measure the width at 3-15/16 inches, you come up with a wide (“D”) width. That makes your shoe size 8D. Bingo!

How do you know if your foot is wide?

Here’s how to tell if you have wide feet in three easy steps.
  1. Place the paper on a flat, even surface and step on it.
  2. Trace an outline of your foot with the pen or pencil.
  3. Record your measurements and compare them against our shoe-sizing chart. Remember, width is the distance between the two widest points on your foot.

How wide is a wide shoe? For most people requiring wider shoes, a wider shoe at the ball- of-the-foot and toe-box is most important. When measured at the ball-of-the-foot, the difference between shoe widths is approximately 1/4”. A wide width is 1/4” wider than a medium width and an extra wide width is 1/2” wider than a medium width.

How much bigger is a wide shoe?

But this 1/8 inch can make all the difference in the world when it comes to comfort. With wide width shoes, the entire shoe is wider, but especially in the area just before the toes. This extra space will help give feet and toes enough room to prevent them from overlapping or rubbing against the inside of the shoes.

Should I size up if I have wide feet?

If the shoes you want only come in one width, then for narrow feet it is recommended that you size down and size up if your foot is wider.

What is D or EE for shoe width?

Boots are typically available in 6 widths: B (extra narrow), C (narrow), D (regular), E (wide), EE (extra wide), and EEE (triple wide).

How wide is D width?

Men’s Shoe Width Chart
Size C (narrow) D (medium)
8 3.5″ 3.8″
9 3.6″ 3.9″
10 3.8″ 4.0″
11 3.9″ 4.1″

How do you measure for wide fitting shoes?

To measure the width of your foot, stand on a firm surface and wrap a flexible tape measure around the widest part of your foot – near the big and little toe joints. Record the length in mm and choose the widest foot for the final result by using the fit chart.
