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. I will show you a list of the best women’s snow boots for high instep based on my many years of shoe fitting experience.

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.

My Experience Helping Women with High Insteps Find the Correct Type of Shoes

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 and “complicated” foot shapes, 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 3 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.

  • Oversized Openings: The snow boots that I recommend open up nice and wide so you can easily slide your feet inside the boots.

The issue that most women complain about is how they are supposed to find shoes that provide those 3 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 snow boots I will describe shortly also provide the following features that will help 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.

Are You Unsure Whether You Have a High Instep?

An easy way to find out if you have a high instep is to ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Do you have a hard time getting your shoes on and off?
  2. Do you feel like the shoes always put pressure on the top part of your feet?

If the answer is yes, you might have high insteps. This means that you have extra foot volume that needs to comfortably fit in the shoes you are looking for. In order to find shoes that will accommodate your high instep you need to look for shoes with extra depth.

  1. All I’m seeing is extra wide – I need extra wide and extra depth with the round toe box. Where can I find them?

    • Hello Lousie,

      Shoes don’t come labeled as “extra deep”. The only way to tell if a shoe provides extra depth is by having fitted or tried it before. All of the boots I recommend in this article are available in extra wide widths and provide extra depth with rounded toe-boxes.

  2. First, thank you for this site! I had given up on finding good snow boots with my ridiculously high instep, but now I have hope!
    So, on to my question: After talking about boots being waterproof and having good insulation, you say, “the boots that I recommend are also lightweight and provide good traction,” which implies that your recommended boots also are waterproof and have good insulation. However, the Orthofeet Florence boots you recommend above do not say, either on Amazon’s site or the Orthofeet site, that they are waterproof, and (according to you) “if they don’t come labeled as waterproof, it’s because they aren’t.”
    My problem feet are wide with a crazy high instep, but they also struggle with plantar fasciitis and mild neuropathy, so I would prefer boots with arch support if possible. Are there any other brands that might work?

    • Hello Dyany,

      I apologize about the confusion.

      The Orthofeet boots that I recommended on this article are not waterproof. If you need a waterproof boot capable of accommodating a high instep I suggest that you try the Propet styles.

      I strongly suggest that you limit the time that you wear the boots, as you will always get better support and stability from your everyday sneakers.
