Stylish Boots for Women with Wide Feet and Narrow Heels – Recommendations from a Shoe Fitter


After publishing an article on the best shoes and sandals for women with wide feet and narrow heels, I got many emails from women with the same “complicated” foot shape asking for recommendations on stylish boots. I am going to tell you the same thing I told the women who read my previous article: There are no two feet alike, and what has worked well for many women who have wide feet and narrow heels, might not work as well for your feet. With that said, the stylish boots that I will show you in this article are the ones that I have fitted before and I am confident that they can accommodate most women with “combination feet” (wide forefoot and narrow heels).

Another important thing I want to mention is that simply because you notice that I recommend a boot from a specific shoe brand, I don’t want you to assume that all boots from that same shoe brand will accommodate your foot shape. All shoes, even among the same shoe brand, fit a little differently.

My Experience Fitting Women’s Shoes

I have been fitting women’s shoes for many years and it’s no secret that I am obsessed with fit. To offer a comfortable fit, all of the boots that I recommend are available in an inclusive size range including wide and extra wide widths.

What Makes the Boots I Recommend Effective for Wide Feet and Narrow Heels?

✅ Round Toe-Boxes

All of the boots that I recommend provide round toe-boxes instead of pointier ones to accommodate your wide forefoot and prevent your toes from rubbing or overlapping against one another.


✅ Adjustable Buckles with Straps

You will notice that some of the boots that I recommend provide adjustable side buckles with straps, which are going to help you adjust the tightness of the boots. This feature is a huge plus for women with narrow heels as by adjusting the buckle you will push your foot and secure it against the back of the boots to prevent heel slippage.


Without further ado, let’s take a look at a selection of the best boots for women with wide feet and narrow heels. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.

  1. I cannot find the NAOT Kona in multiple widths—not even on NAOT’s website. Maybe it’s not the intended link? Thank you.

    • Hello Deborah,

      This was a mistake on my part as the NAOT Kona is not available in wide widths. I already updated the description of the boot, so thank you for picking this up.

      Even though this boot is not available in wide widths it fits on the wider side. However, is not as deep as other boots so I am not sure it will accommodate your high instep.

      • Just seeing this note now. Thank you for remembering my instep! That would be a dealbreaker with the Kona. Such a shame—it’s so pretty in red, not that I could afford its current price!

        I did have a chance to try the Orthofeet for a reasonable price (the previous Marina model actually, which reviewers said was more comfortable than the current Emma model). They really did a nice job with instep adjustablity, but as some reviewers had noted, it definitely pinched and bruised my toes, and the more I wore them over the course of an hour the more my foot stretched them and slipped forward for a bruised as well as pinched feeling, The shoe itself seems wide enough and long enough, but the design at the toe is not smart.

        I did get Orthofeet Sahara Grey sandals/slides after seeing you recommend the brand, however, and they are the perfect house slipper (well, that’s how I am using them) for someone who needs a bit of arch support as well as room for wide feet. I badly needed something I could slip on and off, as plantar fasciitis no longer allows me to go barefoot. So all is not lost.

        For anyone reading, and looking for suggestions, I have wide feet and narrow heels and have had some success with select models of Wolky,, Earth, and Cobb Hill for booties and also now own the Propet Dani snow boot shown above. Overall, however, I’m not as happy with the way sizing and arch cushion/support is going with Earth and Cobb Hill (Rockport) these days. They were better seven years ago.

        • Hello Deborah,

          Sorry to hear that the Marina model by Orthofeet was not wide enough for your toes! Hopefully they will start manufacturing their shoes with rounded toe-boxes.

          I am glad the Orthofeet sandal/slide worked as a slipper to wear around the house! Thank you for your feedback!!!
