A great number of women have reached out to me asking which are the best winter boot styles for narrow feet. It is not an easy task to find a pair of sneakers to fit a woman with narrow FIT, but it is even harder to find a good pair of narrow winter boots without compromising comfort and style.
I have been working for a premier specialty shoe store for over 10 years, and I have fitted all type of women’s feet, including narrow, medium, wide and extra wide! I hear women complain all the time about how hard it is to find shoes when you have extra wide feet, but they don’t know that it is even harder to find shoes for women with narrow feet.
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 will end up creating all sort 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 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 shoe styles to choose from. In this post, I will give you some insight on the matter and I will describe the best narrow winter boots for women!
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 (since they will be waterproof).
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. Take a look at picture below for clarification:
- 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. Take a look at picture below for clarification:
- Lastly, check if you feel like your feet moves 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.
I have seen many women come in to 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.
The good news is that I have fitted a couple of narrow winter boots for women, and I will describe them below. There is one particular boot brand that I have found to be the most effective one when fitting women with narrow feet. This has always been my to-go brand for women who need narrow fitting shoes.

All of these shoe styles fit “true to size” which means that you need to go a “half a size longer” of the size that your measure in the shoe measuring scale (Brannock device) in order to prevent your toes from rubbing against the front or the sides of the boots.
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:
I always recommend women to always 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 like and trust near their area!
The fact is that most women are unaware about 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:
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 due to wearing the wrong type of shoes or the wrong shoe size.
Don’t Forget About the Socks – Extra Cushion and Warmth
Don’t forget about the importance of socks, specially 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 will provide more warmth and cushioning for those really cold days. These socks will also allow your feet to breathe better, since this are made of merino wool, an ultra-soft, naturally anti-microbial, breathable material.
