The Best Narrow Winter Boots for Women – Supportive and Waterproof

best-narrow-winter-boots-for-women

A great number of women have reached out to me asking which are winter boots can fit the shape of their narrow feet.

I have been working at a specialized shoe store for over 10 years where we evaluate women with foot issues and “complicated” foot shapes. I have helped hundreds of women with narrow feet find the perfect pair of shoes for their feet, and I believe I can help you too.

If you get a pair of winter boots that are too wide for your feet, your feet will end up moving too much inside your shoes, and that constant friction might end up creating all sorts of foot issues to your feet such as blisters, calluses, and corns.

When I am fitting a pair of shoes for women with narrow feet (that they didn’t know existed), I always ask them to remember one thing: It doesn’t matter how narrow or how wide your feet are, there is at least one shoe style out there that will fit the shape of your feet perfectly and I will help you find it!

It is not a matter of making your feet fit the shoe, but making the shoe fit the shape of your unique feet!

I understand that the search of finding boots for women with narrow feet can be time consuming and frustrating if you don’t know which boot styles to choose from.  The type of boots that I will describe in this article will not only fit the shape of your narrow feet, but they will also protect your feet from the cold and rain (as the boots are waterproof).

What Makes the Boots I Recommend Effective for Narrow Feet?

In addition to being labeled as narrow (N), the winter boots I recommend provide a narrower toe-box instead of a rounder one. This helps prevent your feet from moving too much inside the boots. Let me show you the difference between one of the boots I recommend and a different style:

I have seen many women come into the store looking for narrow winter boots and gracefully I have been able to help them. However, the issue is that most shoe manufacturers make shoes in medium, wide, and extra wide widths, but fail to consider women with narrow feet.

This is why it is a real challenge to find shoes and specifically winter boots for women with narrow feet. There are only a few shoe companies that make women’s shoes in narrow widths and also very few shoe styles available.

There is one particular boot brand that I have found to be the most effective when it comes to fitting women with narrow feet. This has always been my go-to shoe brand for women who need narrow fitting boots.

Important Update: I recently found another boot brand that is capable of fitting women with narrow feet.

The Best Winter Boot Brands for Women with Narrow Feet

Propet

Vasque

The shoe brand I recommend for women with narrow feet is called Propet. This is one of the best shoe manufacturing companies for women. Propet boots are designed for women who are looking for comfortable shoes without wanting to compromise style. This brand uses premium leathers, rustic details and hand-finished touches to form the essence of the brand.

Propet believes in making not only the best looking and fashionable shoes but also providing excellent features. The following are some of the features their shoes provide:

  • Functional fit characteristics

Most importantly, Propet boots are available in narrow widths (N).

Propet makes excellent quality, supportive winter boots that will fit a woman with narrow feet perfectly. These boots will also provide great traction, flexibility, and warmth!

Another recent addition is called Vasque. This shoe brand manufactures boots that are capable of fitting the shape of their narrow feet. The boots made by Vasque are not available in narrow widths but they do fit very narrow.

Propet offers versatile styles that feel exceptional from the inside out. This shoe brand provides boots that offer good arch and ankle support. With these boots, you can go to work, go to a party, and you can also be highly active as the shoe will fit narrow feet and provide excellent support.

You should know that Propet is still one of the few brands in the marketplace that women can rely on, you can always find the unusual sizes and widths. They firmly believe that shoes can only be comfortable when they are a perfect fit, which I totally agree with.

To prevent your toes from rubbing against the front or side part of the boots, I highly recommend that you order these boots a whole size larger than the size that your feet measure. This translates to 0.6 inches or 1 centimeter of space between your longest toe and the end of the boots.

If none of these boots happen to come in your size or is there something you want to share with me about your feet feel free to send me an email to: comfortablewomenshoes@gmail.com 

If you happen to have a child with narrow feet that also needs a pair of winter boots, you should take a look at an article I wrote where I describe the best narrow boots for children:

Narrow Boots For Kids – The Best Boots For Kids With Narrow Feet!

I always recommend women to try to find their shoes at their local shoe store, where a shoe fitter can properly measure their feet and find shoes accordingly. However, several women have contacted me asking me where they can buy their shoes online since they don’t have a local shoe store that they  trust near their area!

The fact is that most women are unaware of what their correct shoe size is. Moreover, finding the correct shoe size has several advantages such as preventing you from having foot issues and will also give you comfort. Getting the correct shoe size goes beyond just getting the correct shoe length, you also need to get the correct width. Many women make the common mistake of ignoring their foot width.

The shoes can’t be too long, too short, too narrow or too wide, they must be just right!  Remember that if the shoes are too wide for your feet, they will make your feet move too much inside the shoe and create blisters, calluses, or corns, among many other issues!

If you are not 100% sure that you are wearing the correct shoe size, please take a look at an article I wrote called:

How To Measure Foot Shoe Size – The Most Simple And Effective Way!

Trust me, getting the correct shoe size will save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Mainly because you won’t have to spend money on treatment for your feet such as injuries or foot deformities.

Don’t Forget About the Socks – Extra Cushion and Warmth

Don’t forget about the importance of socks, especially if you are going to be wearing these boots during the winter season. Keep in mind that socks play a key role in keeping your feet healthy since they act as a barrier between your feet and the shoes, preventing the growth of bacteria inside the shoes.

There are certain types of socks that help provide more warmth and cushioning for those really cold days. These socks will also allow your feet to breathe better since they are made of merino wool, an ultra-soft, naturally anti-microbial, breathable material.

Below  you can find a selection of the best winter socks for women:

Before you leave I just wanted to share with you some guidelines to check whether you have narrow feet or not.

Identifying Narrow Feet – Follow these Simple Steps!

Follow these two easy and simple steps to check whether you have narrow feet or not.

  • First, check the toe-box of the shoe and see if there is too much extra material around it.
  • Then, check whether you can slide your finger around the heel area of the shoe. If you feel like you can slide your whole finger around it, then the shoe might be too wide for your feet.
  • Lastly, check if you feel like your feet move too much inside the shoes (this is also a sign that the shoes are too wide). This can be a huge issue since when your feet move too much inside the shoes, that constant friction can lead to blisters, calluses, and corns.

These are all signs that you might have narrow feet and that the shoes that you are wearing are too wide for your feet.

  1. What do you do if you have narrow feet and narrow ankles , but wear a size 11 narrow in shoes? There is no size 11.5 narrow boot. Most boots are available in 12 narrow. If I could find a narrow size in 12, it would already be too wide for me. I have a collection of new winter boots in size 11 narrow which I bought this winter. None fit. My major complaint is that many narrow boots have a wide heel and wide ankle opening. One Easy Spirit ankle boot ( not warm) in waterproof suede with side zip up on either side in 11 medium fit the best. I bought them because others rated the medium as being too narrow. My only problem is that the open is too large. I am contemplating taking the boots to a shoe repair to see if they can narrow the opening. I have spent a fortune in boots. I would have to wear three pairs of thick socks to fit in most of the regular width boots.
    its difficult enough to find the right running shoe for support on my feet as a nurse on my feet all day, and another pair for working out with my personal trainer. I had a T3 to L3 spine fusion with osteotomy and 2 long rods and twenty screws. I continue to stay active as an E.D. R.N. full time and I work out. I wore New Balance 860s in 11 narrow, fitted by the same specialty running footwear store for several years. Last year, the model wasn’t consistent in sizing, so the store no longer carries New Balance. Brooks run short and wide. It might be cheaper to find a professional shoe maker to make custom shoes that to continue to spent a fortune on shoes and boots which don’t fit.-

    • Hi Denise,

      I understand your frustration. it can be very time-consuming to find a pair of narrow boots that fit, especially in larger sizes. I have fitted some of the narrowest boots, but most of them stop at a size 11.

      I can send you specific boot recommendations but I would like to know if you are looking for a snow boot or a waterproof winter boot.

      I find it amazing that you manage to stay so active. Have you tried the shoe brand Asics for running/walking shoes?

      • I actually wore Asics until they changed their last. The heel is too wide now and the toe area is too narrow. My twin sister had consistently worn Asics in 12 narrow until they changed the last. The professional shoe fitting store for runners/ other sports, agreed that the Asics heel is too wide and the toes box are too narrow now. I did buy many pairs of the New Balance 860s during the last year that they fit so well. I am just starting to need new shoes now.

        I am actually looking for a snow boot/ ice boot with good traction.

  2. What about La Canadienne boots?Would you recommend that brand?. I’m looking for winter boots, shearling lined boots to the toe that are stylish and can be worn with a dress coat or
    casual winter coat. Of course in a narrow size. Is that too tall of an order?

    • Hi Leena,

      I hope you are well. Some of the La Canadienne boot styles are actually available in narrow widths (N).

      I wish you would have told me your shoe size so I can send you specific boot recommendations. I am not sure if the boots below are available in your size but they are some examples of winter lined boots for women with narrow feet. Whether they are stylish enough I leave that up to you.

      Option 1

      Option 2

      Option 3 (look for the black suede style)

      I hope this helps.

  3. My daughter in law wears an 8 1/2 or a 9 has narrow feet and super skinny ankles and calves. She needs an actual winter snow boot for snowy weather in Utah she hasn’t ever been able to find a pair of boots that aren’t huge on her calves which create horrible pressure points trying to cinch them down any suggestions for narrow feet, skinny ankles and skinny calves for a good snow boot with traction?
