Do you have a trip coming up where you will be traveling through various (sometimes wet) climates and you rather wear waterproof sneakers than heavy and bulky rain bots? Maybe part of your commute to work includes walking and you’d rather not change footwear for rainy days? There are many reasons why women prefer to wear waterproof shoes, so let me show you a list of the best waterproof walking shoes for women with wide feet based on my many years of shoe fitting experience.
If you are not a big fan of rain boots, waterproof shoes provide the most versatility as they will help keep your feet dry, comfortable, and will probably go with most outfits in your wardrobe.
After having fitted women’s shoes for many years, I became familiar with which waterproof walking shoes are better than others. For example, some models are a lot more lightweight and flexible, and will help keep your feet dry while allowing your feet to breathe.
We also need to consider your foot shape. Having wide or extra wide feet can make it a lot more challenging to find shoes that fit, and if you happen to have a high instep we need to look for waterproof shoes that provide extra depth.
Not sure what the instep of your foot is? Below you can find an image for clarification. The instep is the top part of your feet, and when it’s high, it makes it a lot more challenging to find shoes that fit.
What Makes the Waterproof Shoes I Recommend Ideal for Your Wide Feet?
1️⃣ Waterproof Leather Uppers
All of the walking shoes that I recommend are fully waterproof.
2️⃣ Round Toe-Boxes
This feature helps prevent your toes from overlapping and rubbing against one another or the side of the shoes. You will notice how most of the walking shoes that I recommend are available in wide widths (W).
3️⃣ Extra Depth
This feature allows the feet to fit deeply inside the shoes, preventing the top part of the feet from rubbing against the top part of the shoes. This feature is ideal for women with wide feet and high insteps.
All of the waterproof sneakers that I recommend provide comfort and protection from wet environments, but they are also breathable at the same time. Disclosure: Keep in mind that we may receive commissions when you click our links and make purchases.
