Are you having a hard time finding extra wide sandals for your swollen feet? Do you feel like you always try a whole bunch of different styles but always end up empty handed?
Finding a pair of extra wide sandals can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience if you don’t know what shoe styles to look for.
There is a very small selection of sandal styles that will fit the shape of your swollen feet, but the good news is that I will help you find them.
The key to fit the shape of your swollen feet is that in addition to find a sandal that is labeled as extra wide (“XW”) (“EEEE”), you also need to find sandals that are extra deep and come with a round toe-box.
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. Moreover, I have been helping women find the correct type of shoes and orthotics to reduce or fully eliminate the foot and leg pain that they were having. We specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well. Over the years I became familiar with the best extra wide women sandals for swollen feet.
For the last 5 years I have been helping women find the perfect pair of shoes for their feet online.
First off, let me tell you that women may experience swollen feet for a different number of reasons. Some causes are worse than others and can range from a minor injury which is apparent and easy to treat, or from severe causes that may even be signs of a more serious health condition that needs immediate medical attention.
For instance, swollen feet from deep vein thrombosis or heart failure should be dealt with as quick as possible as they’re severe life-threatening conditions.
Moreover, swelling in the feet is a common symptom for diabetics, liquid retention, pregnant women, those with heart disease, kidney and liver failure and even ankle and foot sprains.
One simple and effective way to treat swollen feet due to liquid retention, is to elevate your feet as much as possible, wear comfortable and supportive footwear, and avoid standing for extended periods.
Now, let me tell you that wearing the wrong type of footwear is the main cause for foot and leg pain. It can also create you several issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns, just to name a few.
You definitely don’t want to add any pain or discomfort to your swollen feet. Wearing an extra wide sandal is certainly going to help.

Sandals for Swollen Feet – The 5 Most Important Features
There are 5 important features that the sandals must provide in order to fit your swollen feet:
☑️ The sandals must provide Extra Depth: This feature will allow your feet to fit deeply inside the sandals and prevent the top part of your feet from rubbing against the top part of the sandals.
☑️ The sandals must come with Rounder Toe-Boxes: This feature will prevent your toes from overlapping each other or rubbing against the side of the sandals
☑️ The sandals must provide a Substantial Outsole: This feature will minimize the impact that your feet take every time they come in contact with the ground.
☑️ The sandals must provide Good Traction: This feature will prevent you from slipping and falling down, especially when walking on wet surfaces.
☑️ The sandals must be available in Extra Wide Widths: This is a requirement, if the shoes are not labeled as extra wide, they will NOT fit the shape of your swollen feet.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t matter how many features a particular shoe provides, if it is not fitted properly, you will not get any of the benefits that they have to offer. What’s even worse, you can end up creating all sort of foot issues to your feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.
Now that you know how to figure out your foot size from home and what features these sandals must provide to your feet, you are ready to see a selection of the best extra wide women sandals for swollen feet.
I only review shoes that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how well-made the shoes, the amount of support that they provide, and how they fit.
The Best Extra Wide Women Sandals for Swollen Feet ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Below you can find a selection of the best extra wide women sandals for swollen feet. These sandals are available in medium (M), wide (XW), and extra wide (XW) widths.
You will love how you will be able to wear these sandals all day without your feet or legs getting tired.These sandals are versatile as you can wear them for going to the beach, hiking, camping, or walking for long periods of time.
Please consider that shoes can run short, long, narrow, or wide, and depending on how they run you will need to adjust the size that you get for yourself.
My suggestion is for you to wear a half a size longer of the size that you measure in the shoe measuring scale to prevent your toes from rubbing against the side or the front of the shoes.
If you measure a foot size 10 and the shoes fit “short”, then you will need to choose the shoe size 11 in order to allow enough wiggle room (a whole size longer instead of a half a size longer). On the other hand, if the shoes fit “long” then you will need to pick the same shoe size instead of going a half a size longer (since the shoes already fit long).
In order to prevent your toes from rubbing against the front or side part of the sandals, I highly recommend that you order them a half a size larger than the size that your feet measure. This translates to 0.3 inches or 0.6 centimeters of space between your longest toe and the end of the sandals.
Most women with swollen feet seem to have one question in common:
Why is it so hard to find supportive women’s sandals that will fit your extra wide feet?
Quite simply because there isn’t enough demand for it. I believe there are a lot of women out there with wide or extra wide feet, but most of them are not aware that they have wide feet. The cost of mass produced shoes is kept low by producing only the most common styles (medium width). The less variations there are, the less the cost is for shoe companies. So, for wide footed people like you, it gets harder to find shoes that fit.
On a different note, if you have children and you are looking to provide them with a pair of good supportive shoes, you can go to a page I created on fitting children’s shoes, where you can find all information related to shoe fittings and more. Kindly click on the link below.
Now that you know which are the best sandals for women with swollen feet, you can keep your feet and legs healthy.
