Editor’s Note: This post has been completely revamped and updated for accuracy on May 2022 and reflects an up-to-date selection of the best women’s snow boots for high instep.
Are you having a hard time finding a pair of snow boots to fit the shape of your high instep? Do you feel like every single snow boot that you try rubs against the top part of your foot and the top part of your toes? Finding a pair of snow boots for a woman with a high instep can be very frustrating and time-consuming, since snow boots are not made to fit the shape of women with high insteps.
It’s hard enough for women with high insteps to find a good pair of sneakers that fit, so imagine how hard it becomes when it’s time to find seasonal footwear.
The good news is that I have helped hundreds of women with high insteps find the correct pair of shoes. You are in good hands because I am an expert when it comes to fitting women’s shoes since I have been working for a specialized shoe store for the last 10 years. We specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well.
I have noticed throughout the years how for the shoes to accommodate the foot shape of a woman with a high instep the shoes need to provide the following 2 key features:
✅ Round Toe-Boxes: This feature helps prevent your toes from rubbing against the side or the top of the boots:
✅ Extra Depth: This feature is going to allow your feet to fit deeply inside the snow boots and prevent the top part of your feet and toes from rubbing against the top part of the boots. This is a key feature that you need to look for in your snow boots.
The issue that most women complain about is how they are supposed to find shoes that provide those 2 features if shoes don’t come labeled as “extra deep” or with a “round toe-box”.
I am here to make things easy for you and provide you with a selection of snow boots that are capable of accommodating your high instep. In addition to providing extra depth and a round toe-box, the Propet snow boots I will describe shortly will provide the following features that will keep your feet dry and warm during the winter:
- Waterproof. This feature will keep your feet dry. Always make sure that your snow boots come labeled as waterproof, if they don’t come with that label, then it’s because they aren’t.
- Insulated. This feature will keep your feet warm.
The snow boots that I recommend are also lightweight and provide good traction.
Keep in mind that the Orthofeet styles are not waterproof.
Before I provide you with a selection of the best women’s snow boots for high instep, I want to make sure that you know what your exact foot size is to be able to buy the correct boot size. While I can’t get into too much detail about how to figure out your exact foot size from home, if you are unsure of your foot size you should take a look at the following article:
Now that you know what features your snow boots need to provide and how to figure out your exact foot size from home, you are ready to take a look at a selection of the best women’s snow boots for high instep.
I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before since that is the only way for me to tell how supportive the s0hoes are and also how they fit.
