If you have wide feet, it’s not always easy to find shoes much less a supportive pair of running shoes for wide feet. Because it’s so important to wear the right shoes when exercising, we researched some of the best-selling, top-rated products to put together this running shoe review to help you find the right pair for your wide feet. Before we get into our list, let’s take a closer look at some key features you should keep in mind while you shop.
Max Width: Every brand designated width a little differently. Typically, wide is shown as “E” but a lot of brands use a “W”. There are modifiers, too, for example, “2E” and “EE” are the same and both are wider than “E”.
Color Options: The number of color options for these shoes varies quite a bit from brand to brand. Some offer as many as 13 or 14 different options while one of our picks only comes in black with gray accents.
Size Range: Something really great about these shoes is most of them are available in a pretty wide range of sizes. The largest size range for these shoes is 6 to 15 while others are available in sizes 7 to 14.
Sole Material: Most of these shoes have soles that are made out of rubber but there are a few that use a synthetic, non-marking material. That’s not all, there are a variety of different tread styles, too.
Shoe Material: This refers to the material that the upper part of the shoe is made of. Most of them use breathable mesh with leather or synthetic overlays, but there are some leather and synthetic options, too.
Breathable: This really depends on what the shoe is made of. Mesh shoes are the most breathable and are great in hot weather. That said, if you want something to use when it gets cold, a less-breathable leather option might be best.
