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.
Please don’t settle for any winter boot 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 due let’s take a look at a selection of the best winter boots for women with wide feet.
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.
The winter boots below have been worn by hundreds of women with wide feet, and they have reported to be happy with how these boots kept their feet dry, warm, and healthy. Please refresh your browser if you can’t see the recommendations.
Please note that these snow boots all fit “true to size”, meaning that you will need to order 3/8 of an inch longer of your foot size in order to prevent your toes form rubbing against the front or the side of the boots. This usually translates to a half a size or a whole size bigger of your foot size.
Now it’s time to order your winter boots. However, in order to buy the correct winter boot size, you need to be 100% sure of your foot size first.
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.
