The struggle to find fashionable wide fit shoes is one that many of us face, but the high street has seriously upped their game of late.
If your fashion finds are often uncomfortable, or you find yourself opting for a bigger size just for that added room, you're not alone. But having wider feet doesn't mean you have to forego stylish options: many a high street retailer is now stocking a wider range, and some stores are even opening solely to cater to your needs. From the styles we'll all be coveting next season to the summer sandals you'll wear every day, shop our edit of the best wide fit shoes on the high street now...
If it's versatility you're looking for, you won't find better than a pair of classic black court shoes. Perhaps not the most practical if you're likely to sink in the grass, but these are a favourite for a reason: the slightly pointed toe lengthens legs while black works with everything in your wardrobe. In a wide fit, you can be sure that they won't dig and and leave you with blisters.
Summer isn't over yet, and a classic pair of sandals are a necessity to see you through (hopefully) warmer days. If you've always avoided strappier styles for fear of 'spilling out', then these wide fit ones will be a godsend. In durable leather and with a supportive small heel, you'll get more than your money's worth!
This summer, fashion's favourite shoe comes in the form of the backless loafer. If the thought of a backless style fills you with dread (those with wide feet know that keeping your shoe in place is a struggle!) then not to worry; these from Evans come with a comfortable slingback strap. In a versaile nude hue, these will work through summer and into autumn.
Ted & Muffy is the ultimate wide-fitting destination: their range comes in multiple different widths depending on what you choose. We love these stand-out summer sandals, but will be heading there at winter time for wider boots with calf sizes tailored to you.
Next always have a fabulous footwear collection, and they haven't failed us with their wider offering, either. These patent and suede loafers are the ultimate workwear option - and they won't pinch your feet!
It goes without saying that you'll get quality and comfort from Clarks' wide fit collection, but their new season designs are stylish and wearable, too. These classic ballerina shoes are given a new season makeover in a gold metallic finish.
For affordable finds with a new season trend focus, head to New Look. They have a fabulous offering, but we're particularly enamoured with these blue block heel shoes in the must-have shape of the season.
Want a wearable summer shoe that keeps your toes covered? Step in the moccasin, which is a perenially stylish flat option. Wear with everything from jeans to dresses.
A clasic pair of sandals are most women's go-to for occasions, but you may have avoided them in the past if you feel your feet are too wide. Rather than shunning the style completely, embrace them with a wide fit pair that will be comfortable all day.
A classic woven leather shoe in pastel hues = the perfect summer find. These slip-ons will look gorgeous with a white summer dress.
