How Do I Know If I Have Wide Feet?

Wide feet is a fairly common condition, but it is a little difficult to work out if you actually do have feet wider than average. Before reading on and finding our top recommendations, we would recommend that you measure your feet. To do this, please:

  1. Please two pieces of paper on the floor, stand on the paper, and draw the shape of your foot.
  2. Measure the widest part of each foot at your foot's widest point.
  3. Write down the numbers and consult the below guide
  4. If your feet are larger than those identified in the "wide" column, you have wide feet

Top Insoles for Wide Feet

Below we suggest three insoles that are popular among users with wide feet.


Best All Round Insoles for Wide Feet

Superfeet Green Performance Insoles - WideThe world's most popular insoles are now available with a wider fit. The Superfeet Green Performance Insoles combine technology, comfort and patented designs to deliver an unrivalled level of comfort and support for your feet.

Their patented heel cup encapsulated your heel for natural shock absorption and optimal support. Meanwhile the contoured shape allows the foot to rest perfectly supported on the full-length foam insole.

  • Extra wide for users with wide feet
  • Heel cup technology provides superior heel support for reducing plantar pain
  • Shock absorbing foam reduces shock and improves comfort during use

Best Antibacterial Wide Feet Insoles for Keeping Feet Fresh

Best Wide Feet Insoles for Playing Sports

Pedag Viva Sport InsolesPlaying sports can be a little difficult if you suffer from wide feet, and it can even make sustaining foot injuries more common as your shoes may be a little ill-fitting. By using insoles such as the Pedag Viva Sport Insoles, you can provide the support your feet need.

This means that there won't be many weak points of stability. While the insoles themselves use micro-air chambers to reduce shock during use, a pad reduces metatarsal pain.

  • Thin and impact-reducing for playing sports such as running, football and rugby
  • Metatarsal pad relieves aching and pain in the ball of your feet
  • Wider design ideal for those with wide feet

Trimming Your Shoe Insoles

Another option that we would recommend looking into is trimming your insoles. If you purchase insoles that are one or two sizes too big, it means that you can trim them down to size, which will allow you to provide a catered fit to your insoles. Trimming your insoles is fairly easy, but if you want a step-by-step guide, we would recommend looking at our Trimming Guide below.

Our Top Recommended Trimmable Insoles for Wide Feet

Powerstep Original Full Length Orthotic InsolesSome of our most popular trimmable insoles are the Powerstep Original Full Length Orthotic Insoles, which provide outstanding medical-grade support to your feet, helping to reduce the symptoms caused by plantar fasciitis, arch pain, ankle pain and more.

The insoles include friction reducing top fabric which reduces movement during use, helping to provide the stability needed for wide feet. Finally, these insoles are available in a wide range of sizes, perfect for purchasing the size up.

  • Provide outstanding stability across the feet
  • Tackle plantar fasciitis pain, arch pain, ankle pain and more
  • Buy in a larger size and trim down if you suffer from wide feet.
