best-sneakers-for-women-with-narrow-feet

Does every single shoe style that you try feels too wide on your feet? Do you feel like your feet always move too much inside your shoes? I know what you are going through, and I understand how frustrating and time-consuming it can be to find shoes that fit the shape of your narrow feet.

As far as sneakers concerns, there are 3 particular shoe styles that have proven to be the most effective ones when it comes to fitting the shape of a narrow foot. One of the most common mistakes that I see women make is to assume that a sneaker that is available in narrow widths (N) is going to automatically fit the shape of their narrow feet. For women with extra narrow feet that is simply not enough.

I have been contacted by several women who are tired of wasting time and money from trying different shoe styles just to end up empty handed.  The good news is that stops today!

My name is Juan Valenzuela and I have been fitting women’s shoes for the last 10 years. I have helped several women who claimed that their feet were too wide or too narrow find that particular shoe style that they didn’t even know existed, and I can help you too.

I want you to make me a promise. Never settle for shoes that don’t fit the shape of your narrow feet perfectly, as shoes that are too wide are going to lead to blisters, calluses, and corns, as well as general foot and leg pain.

After having fitted women’s shoes for the last 10 years I have become familiar with the best shoe brands for women with narrow feet and the best shoe styles among those brands.

I am going to share a secret with you. Do you know what are the 2 most important features that your shoes must provide in order to fit the shape of your narrow feet? In addition to being available in narrow widths, your sneakers must provide the 2 following features:

✅ Narrow Heel Counter: The heel counter is the back part of the shoe that provides ankle support, and one of the areas that women with narrow feet suffer the most. If you constantly feel too much heel movement and that your heels are constantly slipping off your shoes, then you must look for shoes with narrower heel counters.

✅ Narrow Toe-Box: Shoes with narrow toe-boxes are going to prevent your feet from moving too much inside the shoes.

One issue that women encounter is how they are supposed to find shoes that provide those 2 features if shoes don’t come labeled as with a narrow heel counter or with a narrow toe-box.  That’s what I am here for. I have tested and fitted hundreds of different shoe styles, and I know which styles provide those 2 features from having fitted them before.

Let’s take a look at a selection of the best shoes for women with extra narrow feet.

Before I forget, are you 100% sure of your foot length? The reason I ask is that I don’t want you to waste a lot of time and money by having to constantly return the shoes. If you know your exact foot size, then go ahead and scroll down to see the selection of the best extra narrow shoes that I have put together. However, if you are not totally sure of your foot length then take a look at an article I wrote where I describe the simplest, yet most effective way to figure out your foot size from home:
