Editor’s Note: This post has been completely revamped and updated for accuracy on May 2022 and reflects an up-to-date selection of the best winter boots for women with wide feet.
Are you having a hard time finding a pair of winter boots to accommodate the shape of your wide feet? Do you feel like every single pair of winter boots that you try are too tight around your toes and the top of your feet (instep)? Some women don’t want their winter boots to just keep their feet warm and dry, they want them to be functional and fashionable!
Finding a pair of winter boots for women with wide feet can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience since most brands only carry standard sizes (medium width). Most women find themselves starring at a wall of winter boots that look very different and very similar at the same time.
I understand how frustrating it can be having to try several different boot styles because they all feel too narrow. The issue is that there is a very small selection of winter boots for women with wide feet, but the good news is that I will help you find them.
You are in good hands because 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. We specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well.
One of the most common mistakes that I see women make is to assume that shoes that are labeled as wide (“W”, “EE”) will automatically fit the shape of their feet wide feet. In addition to finding a winter boot that is available in wide widths, you need to find a winter boot that provides extra depth and a rounder toe-box. The issue is that most women’s shoes don’t come labeled as extra deep or with a rounder toe-box.
The only way to tell if a shoe provides these 2 features is by having tried or fitted the shoes before.
I know exactly which snow boots provide extra depth and rounder toe-boxes from having fitted them before. Let me show the difference in depth between one of the boots I recommend and a different style:
Now let’s take a look at the difference in the toe-boxes between one of the boots I recommend and a different style:
Please don’t settle for any winter boots thinking that they might stretch with time or that you will only wear them for a couple of hours and once in a while. It actually takes only a couple of wears in the wrong shoe style to develop foot issues such as blisters, calluses, or corns.
In addition to accommodating the shape of your wide feet, the winter boots that I recommend provide the following features:
✅Waterproof: This feature helps keep your feet dry when walking through rain or snow.
✅ Insulated: This feature helps keep your feet warm during cold or snow days.
✅ Traction: This feature helps prevent women from slipping and falling, especially when walking through slippery surfaces.
✅ Lightweight/Flexible: This feature helps prevent the feet and legs from easily getting tired.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at a selection of the best winter boots for women with wide feet.
I only review shoe styles that I have fitted before since that is the best way to tell the amount of support that the shoes provide, how durable they are, and most importantly how they fit.

What Shoe Size Should You Order?
Take a look at the description below each boot to find out what shoe size you should order to prevent your longest toe from rubbing against the front part of the boots.
Winter boots that are too short can cramp your toes and make them overlap one another or rub against the side of the boots. On the other hand, winter boots that are too long will allow for too much foot movement inside the snow boots and create foot issues such as blisters, calluses, and corns.
