Best Insoles for Wide Feet

Thursday, 29 November 2018  |  Admin

Wearing shoes that are too tight for your feet can lead to a number of issues, including bunions, bunionettes, knee, hip, and even lower back pain. But did you know that it's just as important to wear insoles of the correct width? We're here to help you determine the right size of your feet, and find the perfect insoles that will make wearing shoes even more comfortable.

Do I Have Wide Feet?

Before we dive deep into the wonderful world of wider shoe insoles, it's important to be sure that you even have wide feet. If you're already certain that you have wide feet, and have been buying special insoles and shoes your whole life, feel free to skip this short intro and jump straight to our list of recommendations. If, however, you're still not entirely certain whether your feet are wide, normal, or even narrow, this short guide should be able to answer those questions for you in no time.

How to Measure Foot Width?

It's not enough to simply measure your foot – you need to do it correctly. You can determine the correct width of your feet in three simple steps:

1. Tape two pieces of paper on the floor. Wearing a pair of your usual socks, stand on the paper, with your weight on the foot your are measuring. Then, using a pencil, draw the outer shape of your foot. Repeat with your other foot.

2. Measure at the widest portion of each foot with a ruler.

3. Write down both numbers, and consult the measurement charts we've prepared for you.

Extra Tips and Tricks

With a few extra tips and tricks, you can be certain to get the correct measurements. If possible:

  • Measure your feet in the evening, as they expand slightly during the day. By getting their widest possible width, you can then pick shoes that will remain comfortable throughout the day.
  • Have a friend or family member draw the shape of your foot. Your measurement will be more accurate if you remain standing upright.
  • Use a pencil to draw your feet. A regular pencil is very precise, and you can avoid staining your socks with ink.
