best-sneakers-for-narrow-feet

Do you always have a hard time finding shoes to accommodate the shape of your narrow feet? Do you feel like every single shoe style that you try feels too wide and gaps too much around your ankles?

Do not settle for shoes that simply “run or fit narrower” than others. If you are shopping at your local shoe store and the salesperson tells you that they don’t have shoes in narrow widths, don’t many any rush decision about buying their shoes. There are sneakers available in narrow widths and I have found them to be the most effective ones when it comes to fitting the shape of a woman with an extra narrow foot.

It is a fact that women with narrow feet have the hardest time finding shoes that fit. There are certain shoe companies that manufacture sneakers in narrow widths (“N”) (“2A”), but buying a shoe that is labeled as narrow width doesn’t guarantee that it will fit the shape of your narrow feet.

There is only a small selection of shoes that are capable of accommodating the shape of women with narrow feet, but the good news is that I know exactly which shoe styles these are, and I will describe them shortly.

I am an expert when it comes to fitting women’s shoes, and I have helped hundreds of women with narrow feet find the perfect pair of shoes.  I have been working for a specialized shoe store for the last 10 years in which we specialize in women with foot and leg problems, but we provide regular shoe fittings as well.

I have been helping women find the perfect pair of shoes for their narrow feet online for the last 5 years, and based on the data I have been collected and the feedback received from women who have actually worn the shoes, I have put together a selection of the top 3 best sneakers for women with narrow feet.

Never settle for shoes that feel too wide on your feet. Wearing shoes that are too wide usually leads to too much foot movement inside the shoes, and that constant friction between the feet and the shoes can create discomfort and foot issues such as blisters, calluses, or corns.

Finding a pair of sneakers for a woman with narrow feet can be a frustrating and time-consuming experience. I have been contacted by several women from all over the world who were about to give up their quest for narrow shoes.

Most women explain me how they have “extra narrow feet: and they can’t find a single shoe style that fits. If you are tired of wasting time and money from having to constantly return your shoes, then you came to the right place.

Without further due, let’s take a look at the top 3 best sneakers for women with narrow feet. These shoe styles can be used for everyday walking as well as running long distances. Please keep in mind that these are all shoe styles that I have fitted before, since that is the only way for me to tell how supportive the shoes are as well as how they fit.

The Top 3 Best Sneakers for Women with Narrow Feet: Option 1

I have found that most Asics shoe styles fit on the narrower side, and this shoe brand seems to be women’s favorite when it comes to fitting the shape of their narrow feet. However, some of their shoe styles are actually available in narrow widths.

Women with narrow feet have reported that the Asics Gel Kayano 25 is the best fitting shoe for narrow feet. This style comes with a narrower toe-box and a narrower heel counter that is going to prevent your feet from sliding out of the shoes.

I have fitted women with the narrowest feet in this shoe style. In addition to fitting narrow feet, this shoe style has infused gel that is going to minimize the impact that your feet take when they come in contact with the ground, which basically means that the shoes protect your joints.

This shoe style is made from seamless materials that keeps women who enjoy running safe from annoying pressure points or chafing.

I summarize the advantages and disadvantages of this shoe style below:

Pros:

✅ Narrow Heel Counter

✅ Narrow Toe Box

✅ Supportive

✅ Durable

✅ Breathable

✅ Lightweight/Flexible

Cons:

❌ High Cost (Update: Shoe is on sale on Amazon).

The Top 3 Best Sneakers for Women with Narrow Feet: Option 2

This shoe style is the second most popular choice for fitting women with narrow feet. The shoe provides a narrower toe-box and a narrower heel counter, which is going to prevent your feet from moving too much inside the shoes.

Women prefer this shoe style over the Kayano 25 because it’s more affordable, but keep in mind that it doesn’t provide the same amount of support. There is infused gel in this shoe style but not as much as the Kayano 25. The more gel the shoes have, the more expensive the shoe becomes.

I summarize the advantages and disadvantages of this shoe style below:

✅ Affordable

✅ Durable
