We will be spilling the tea on everything wide fit related and showing you why having wide feet no longer has to be a struggle.

So, what are wide fit shoes? Wide fit shoes traditionally incorporate a wider tread on the sole and a deeper toe box, giving your feet more room to breathe. If you find that standard sizes aren’t fitting comfortably then you may be after a wider fit. There are so many reasons why wide fit is a great solution for wider feet. Although sometimes tempting, trying to squeeze your feet into ill-fitting shoes is not a good idea and can actually cause a lot of long term damage. We now have so many wide fit styles, that are fashion forward, making shoe shopping easier for our wide fit babes.
You might be thinking, why should I consider buying wide fit shoes? Not only will wearing a wider fit lower your chances of getting blisters but will also prevent hammertoe and bunions! Yes, squeezing your feet into shoes that are too tight can cause these conditions so it’s really not worth it babe. A few years ago, it would have been next to impossible to find a pair of stylish shoes that offer a wider fit. This reality seems somewhat crazy considering that wide feet are actually really common in women all over the world. Our Wide Fit collection features signature heels, flats and even wide fit boots!
Although wide feet are common- lots of girls actually struggle to know if they need wide fit shoes or not. Lots of people are unaware of their perfect shoe size and therefore, end up settling for a not so perfect fitting shoe. There are several ways to determine whether you should opt for a wider fit. Firstly, the most obvious indicator is that you are struggling to find shoes in your usual shoe size that actually fit or they are often really uncomfortable. If a shoe feels too tight on your feet then it’s likely that you need to size up or try a wider alternative. Rubbing and blisters can also be an indication of this.
Another way to determine whether you need wide fit shoes is by measuring your feet yourself. The easiest way to do this is by standing on a piece of paper and tracing the outline of both feet. To find out the width simply measure between the broadest part of your foot. Now that you have the measurements you can look online for a size chart. This will allow you to review your measurements against your shoe size and determine whether you have wide feet or not.
If you are still unsure, there are lots of professional places that offer feet measuring services or you can order a wide fit shoe as a trial run and see how you get on. We want all of our wide fit babes to feel fabulous. If you have a big night out planned that you’re dreading finding the perfect heels for then you’ve come to the right place. Our wide fit collection also features wide fit heels so that you can sit back and relax before your night out.
Now of course, we know that some of our wide fit babes will be looking for a shoe that covers up their feet a bit more. Bunions can be a real struggle and can make shoe shopping 10x harder.
