best-New-Balance-shoes-for-women-with-wide-feet

Are you dealing with a specific foot condition or foot shape that requires you to wear shoes in extra wide widths? Did your medical professional recommend that you wear New Balance shoes but you are unsure about which styles are wider than others? Women who have extra wide feet or foot conditions such as bunions need to wear shoes that provide extra depth, rounder toe-boxes, and the shoes should be available in extra wide widths (“XW”, “EEEE”).

Don’t assume that all New Balance shoes can accommodate your extra wide feet or foot condition. New Balance offers a wide range of shoes that are available in extra wide widths, but some of those shoes are deeper and wider than others.

My Experience Helping Women with Extra Wide Feet

For the last 10 years, I have worked for a shoe store that specializes in helping people with “complicated” foot shapes as well as foot conditions find the correct types of shoes. I have helped several women with extra wide feet find the correct types of shoes for their feet, and I believe I can help you as well.

Women’s feet come in all different types of shapes and sizes. Some women in addition to having extra wide feet might have high insteps, which requires shoes to provide extra depth.

Before I show you a selection of the best New Balance shoes for women with extra wide feet, I want to make sure that you know your exact foot length and shape. Trust me that it’s important to know whether you have a high instep or not, as this will help you determine how deep your shoes need to be. By the way, the instep is the top part of your feet, and the higher it is, the more challenging it will be to find shoes that fit. Below you can find an image of a woman’s foot with a high instep:

When Was the Last Time You Checked Your Foot Size?

Your foot shape and size can change over time, and some of the factors that contribute to this change are pregnancy, aging and weight gain or loss. Over time and because of gravity, our feet might get longer and wider.

As we age, the body’s ligaments and tendons lose their strength and ability to spring back. This means that our arches decrease, which flattens and lengthens the foot and toes.

This often results in an increase in shoe size by a half-size or more. You might also experience a change in foot width, meaning that even though you always ordered medium width shoes now you might have to start ordering wider shoes.

Don’t insist on getting your shoes in a specific size simply because that has been the size that they always wore. I usually have to insist to them that they need to at least try the shoes in a different size to see how they feel.

Buying shoes online can be a challenge. If you are unsure of your current foot shape or foot length, I suggest that you take a look at a different resource I created where I help women determine their exact foot shape from home:

What Makes the Shoes I Recommend Ideal for Women with Extra Wide Feet?

In addition to being available in extra wide widths, the New Balance shoes I recommend provide these 2 important features:

☑️ Round Toe-Boxes: This feature helps prevent your toes from overlapping each other or rubbing against the side of the shoes. If you are dealing with a specific foot condition such as bunions this feature will help prevent the bunion from being pressed against the side of the shoes.

☑️ Extra Depth: This feature allows the foot to fit deeply inside the shoes, which provides extra room for your feet and toes and increases comfort. Unfortunately, most shoes don’t come labeled as extra deep, and the only way to tell whether a shoe provides extra depth or not is by having tried that shoe style before. Shoes that provide extra depth are ideal for women with high insteps.
