Wide Width Shoes for Spring and Summer, a review by Wardrobe Oxygen featuring brands like Naturalizer, ASOS, J. Renee, David Tate, Munro, and More

After Monday’s Instagram publish about extensive width footwear, I felt this publish was mandatory. If in case you have extensive ft you already know the wrestle is actual find footwear which might be really large and aren’t really hideous. As I wrote in my Instagram caption, plus measurement ladies by no means purchased cabbage rose-covered polyester tunics as a result of they “spark pleasure” however as a result of that was obtainable. And ladies with large ft don’t purchase Frankenstein-wannabe Mary Janes with crepe soles as a result of they assume they’re stylish however as a result of there’s not a lot else.

If the typical American lady is 5’three” and a measurement 16, there isn’t a method the typical American lady additionally has slender ft. I’ve seen a rise in broad width footwear obtainable at common retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, DSW, Zappos, Roaman’s/Lady Inside, ASOS, Amazon, and QVC however that doesn’t imply there’s a rise in type. I’m going on a visit with a style model later this month to a heat location and was on the lookout for footwear. Over the previous month I’ve bought over 30 pairs of extensive width footwear and from them, I’ve solely stored one pair. The remaining have been returned for a number of totally different causes – they have been uglier or extra awkward in individual or they didn’t match. For some it’s a singular difficulty for me (I’ve a really brief pinky toe and really thick padding on the balls of my ft from strolling on my toes as a child), however most of them… it was as a result of they weren’t broad. I positioned them towards vast width footwear from the identical retailer, simply from a earlier yr, and the shoe was markedly narrower. Straps have been clearly shorter, with fewer buckle holes.

Since I began lifting weights a bit over a yr in the past, my physique has modified and that features my ft. I’ve all the time had excessive quantity ft (not simply large however tall/fats) and really thick ankles (not often might I discover an ankle strap that would shut round them). Now, my ft are decrease quantity and ankle straps typically shut and never even on the final gap. Pairs of footwear I owned I needed to donate as a result of they have been now too large. Nevertheless, I had extra problem this yr than in years previous find footwear vast sufficient for my ft. Under I share what footwear I’ve ordered, in the event that they have been hits or misses, and in the event that they have been misses why they have been so you’ll be able to higher decide if they could truly be a sensible choice for you.

Please observe I used to be looking for dressier footwear for spring and summer time. This isn’t a evaluation of vast footwear generally, which is why your favourite retailer will not be talked about. If you realize of a model that isn’t talked about that sells on-trend dressy footwear for spring and summer time do share it within the feedback!

naturalizer wide width shoe review



Naturalizer has been a favourite shoe model for me for YEARS. They’re one of many few retailers who has trendy footwear which might be nicely made, match properly, and are snug. I’ve Naturalizer footwear which are a number of years previous that I nonetheless attain for and nonetheless garner compliments as a result of they’re simply nice footwear. And once I know I will probably be on my ft a very long time, I’m often placing on Naturalizer. You’ll be able to see me put on Naturalizer footwear on this weblog publish, this weblog submit, and this weblog submit. So clearly, they have been the primary model I appeared to find new extensive width spring and summer time dressy footwear.

Naturalizer ‘Kinsey’ Ankle Strap Sandal

That is the type of shoe I would like in my wardrobe. It’s a variation of the ‘Nudist’ sandal Stuart Weitzman made well-known. It’s the sort of shoe that disappears and lets your outfit take the highlight. It’s not fashionable, it’s not cumbersome however it’s an inexpensive heel peak (no less than for me) and the straps a bit thicker so it’s a sturdier shoe with out wanting cumbersome or dorky. This shoe you’ll be able to put on with denims and a cute prime or with a proper ballgown. In my dream closet I’d have this shoe in a nude-to-me colour, in a metallic, and in a pop of shade like acid yellow or scorching pink. I’m not ashamed to confess I’ve ordered this actual shoe six totally different occasions in several sizes, totally different materials, even from totally different retailers hoping I’d get one that may be barely totally different and work for me.

My foot is just too excessive quantity for the strap over the toes. I can’t match my foot into that strap. I did order a pair in suede and I might get 4 out of 5 of my toes in there however the strap was too ahead to seize my tiny pinky toes and the strap was nonetheless urgent so onerous on the highest of my foot I’d find yourself bruised. Nevertheless, if it contained all 5 toes I might have tried stretching the strap to make it work as a result of… nicely so is the plight of the broad footed lady. We go above and past simply to have the ability to have footwear on our ft.

Although I don’t personal these footwear, they’re lovely, well-made footwear. I feel they run a hair slender and aren’t a sensible choice for these with brief toes, excessive quantity ft, or excessive arches. The suede choices are extra pliable than the others, I’d advocate making an attempt them first.

The Naturalizer ‘Kinsey” has been out for a bit so you will discover discontinued colours for lower than $50 and the most recent choices retailing for beneath $90. The shoe is available in satin, suede, leather-based, and metallics in a tremendous vary of colours. I discovered Zappos has the most important vary of nude-to-you colours, Nordstrom one of the best for enjoyable colours and metallics (and sale colours), and QVC greatest for actually small or giant sizes in inventory.

Naturalizer ‘Kadin’ Heeled Sandal

Chances are you’ll acknowledge this shoe from my Instagram publish. Spoiler alert, it didn’t match. In truth, it was the narrowest of all of the footwear I ordered from Naturalizer. This can be a beautiful on-trend shoe that is available in black suede, “gingersnap” suede (the colour I ordered), and a mixture of gingersnap and a few pale pastel shades. Zappos calls the gingersnap shimmer, however I ordered the footwear from them and the shimmer was hardly noticeable.

This can be a nice shoe in case you have a traditional width foot. That’s about all I can say as a result of I couldn’t even match my foot within the shoe. Relying on the retailer the shoe goes for $110 or rather less. I discovered this shoe at QVC, Nordstrom, and Zappos.

Naturalizer ‘Zenia’ Wedge Sandal

I’m not a fan of wedges until I’m attending an outside wedding ceremony or different state of affairs the place I want good stability. As a brief, curvy lady with large ft, I really feel wedges simply make me look much more brief and squat and dumpy. However that’s my private opinion on my private self, and I do know lots of you’re keen on and rock wedges. I ordered these as a result of… nicely as a result of I used to be determined.

I couldn’t strap them round my ankles and I couldn’t match my ft into the shoe. They’ve a shorter strap than the ‘Kinsey’ for the ankle, about the identical on the toe. I feel these would work if in case you have semi-wide ft that aren’t too excessive quantity. And for somebody who doesn’t like wedges, I feel these are fairly good wanting. Nordstrom has them in a beige colour, a smooth metallic, and a floral. Zappos has the identical choices plus black leather-based. They’re out there at a ton of different retailers, however I caught to those two as a result of nobody else had further colours or a greater worth or a greater delivery/return coverage.

Naturalizer ‘Klein’ Strappy Sandal

I didn’t like what number of straps this shoe had, so many straps appears a bit dated in 2019 however your fat-footed gal was feeling determined. Feeling the “nude” choice wouldn’t be a superb match for my pores and skin and look additional tacky, I went with silver leather-based.

These footwear match. The straps corral my pinky toe. No rubbing, no problem closing the shoe round my ankles. They’re additionally comparatively snug for the peak. The leather-based isn’t tremendous delicate so I’ve been sporting them round the home with socks to interrupt them in, however they don’t want a really lengthy break-in interval to be wearable to a marriage or different occasion. Nevertheless, I don’t love the look of them. I virtually thought-about returning them as a result of I feel all these straps is distracting with my wardrobe. I’d really feel extra snug sporting them with pants, however assume the metallic will make the straps much less pronounced. So I’d say these are successful, however I’m not head over heels in love.

I purchased these footwear at Nordstrom for a bit beneath $110 the place they’ve them in beige, silver, black suede, burgundy suede, and a denim blue shade of suede.

Naturalizer ‘Maddy’ Flat Sandal

Whereas I favor a heel with my style seems, these appeared stylish and cozy and one thing that might be dressier than a daily sandal and will probably work with ankle pants and midi and maxi clothes. Whereas I didn’t love the basket weave end on the heels and toe for the lighter colours, I ordered these in Tuscan Yellow Leather-based, considering they’d make the basket weave element look extra purposeful.

I couldn’t match my foot within the shoe. My foot is just too excessive quantity to even get in beneath the cross strap. If in case you have a decrease quantity foot and Naturalizer often matches, these could also be a win for you.

Additionally, the Tuscan Yellow Leather-based is a muted not crayon yellow and it’s suede. And I nonetheless assume the basket weave element makes these footwear more durable to decorate up. I don’t know why white can have a white heel however yellow and beige want some bizarre element… anyway I acquired these at Nordstrom for slightly below $90. They’re additionally out there in QVC; similar choice of colours however they’ve a greater measurement vary (although they’re $99 at QVC).

Naturalizer ‘Tinda’ Ankle Strap Sandal

Very comparable idea to the ‘Kinsey,’ I ordered these after Kinsey didn’t work out. I nervous these footwear wouldn’t match round my ankles. I used to be stunned to seek out out that they do. Nevertheless, the strap would solely include 4 of my 5 toes and even sporting them with my pinky toe hanging out my foot was sliding in all places. The ankle strap does little for stability. When you’ve got a foot that’s vulnerable to sweating, these is probably not the most secure footwear so that you can attempt. Nevertheless, a pair of Footpetals might do exactly the trick. These aren’t horrible footwear, they’re simply not proper for me.

I ordered these in Wisteria Purple from Zappos, which was a suede the identical softness and high quality as the opposite Naturalizer footwear (which is good). At Zappos, this shoe is available in a superb vary of nude-to-you smooth metallic shades. At Zappos they’re $88.95 and have the broadest vary of colours and sizes I discovered on-line. Nevertheless, when you have simply the best measurement and need simply the fitting colour you could discover them for lower than $50 at Amazon and a number of the choices can be found for Prime Wardrobe.

Naturalizer ‘Hoda’ Cutout Bootie

These weren’t the type of footwear I wanted, however they appeared kinda cool so I ordered a pair in white. I couldn’t match my foot within the shoe and the leather-based was comparatively stiff so even when I did shove my foot in there, I might have ended up with blisters and/or open sores the place the shoe edge touched my foot. These are cool wanting footwear however undoubtedly for decrease quantity and fewer large ft. They arrive in three good shade choices for lower than $130 at Nordstrom.

Naturalizer ‘Avril’ Platform Sandal

I like platforms as a lot as I like wedges, which isn’t so much. Positive, they make me should tailor fewer clothes and pants, however I don’t like the majority on my body. However out of desperation I ordered these footwear from Zappos in ‘Cookie Dough’ which is a tan suede and got here with that very same goofy basket weave-covered heel.

These have been a bit comfortable on my foot, however I felt the suede would stretch out a bit. The ankle strap was additionally a bit comfortable, however once more I felt they might stretch out. Nevertheless, I simply didn’t just like the look of those footwear. The platform felt and appeared heavy, the basket weave made these solely footwear I might put on with extra informal appears and I needed footwear that would gown up. These are available a chambray and white stripe and black leather-based, each choices that didn’t work for my wardrobe. In order that they have been returned, however in the event you discover any of those choices a sensible choice in your wardrobe, these footwear are value a attempt. They’re slightly below $110 at Zappos. Nordstrom additionally has them for a similar worth, similar colour choices.

Naturalizer ‘Leah’ Gown Sandals

I did a marketing campaign with Macy’s some time in the past and nonetheless had cash on a present card so I ordered these in beige leather-based. They’re just like the Kinsey however barely totally different and I might inform with the match. The ankle strap was looser, as was the toe strap. The one purpose these didn’t work was as a result of I’ve that wonky tiny pinky toe and it’s too brief to suit underneath the strap. If in case you have regular toes, verify these footwear out. They arrive in black, nude, and beige leather-based and purple suede and retail at Macy’s for $79. I additionally discovered these at DSW for $59.99 and Nordstrom Rack for $49.97.

Naturalizer ‘Carys’ Flatform Sandals

I used to be perusing GQ they usually had all these wacky flatform sandals for males and it impressed me. I ordered these within the White Multi which is pale blue, black, white, and coral. These are some wacky footwear, however I assumed they could look FASHUN particularly with extra trendy/edgy clothes.

Flatforms takes some getting used to strolling in them they usually don’t include my pinky toe. Nevertheless, I’m all about wacky space-age sandals this summer time. If in case you have fussy ft, take a look at this type of shoe. My mother received these from Straightforward Spirit, I attempted a pair from Munro (under), and I feel they’re a classy strategy to be snug and care on your ft with out resorting to Frumptown. You’ve gotten to an age and level in stay the place such footwear look cool, not terrible. Significantly, get out of your consolation zone, pair these with cropped pants, together with your denims, together with your Bermuda shorts, with midi and maxi clothes and linen shifts. Don’t be stunned to have a Gen Z-er cease you on the road and inform you they like your footwear. These are $88.95 at Nordstrom they usually are available 4 colours however I don’t advocate the Gingersnap model until you’re already a badass fashionista and know tips on how to rock what might appear to be platform ace bandages. For the remainder of the world, go together with the white multi or perhaps the black or silver for those who put on a predominately black wardrobe.

vaneli shoe wide width review


I’ve been a fan of VANELi for a few years for prime quality trendy footwear that match quite a lot of widths. I even hosted an occasion at an area Marmi retailer, which carries all of the Wolff Footwear manufacturers which incorporates VANELi and have owned a number of pairs from the model through the years. Nevertheless, the previous few seasons I’ve ordered VANELi footwear and located them to be extra slender than prior to now. Sadly, this spring has sealed the deal that VANELi is not a model that matches my ft.

VANELi ‘Burlie’ T-Strap Sandal

I assumed the bizarre combine of colours will be the sudden impartial that might go together with a variety of my spring and summer time wardrobe, and the low wedge sandal can be simply the factor to go together with a variety of pants, shorts, and clothes.

I couldn’t match all 5 toes into this shoe. The underside of this shoe is ridiculously slender, extra slender than the medium width pumps in my wardrobe. These retail for $129.95 at Nordstrom and TBH, I didn’t assume the fabric selection seemed that pricepoint in individual.

VANELi ‘Taletha’ T-Strap Sandal

This can be a informal sandal that appears glam because of the sensible selection of materials. A croco-embossed patent leather-based in 5 colours plus a cushty wanting sole made me assume these can be a superb informal sandal to combine in with my SAS Duo sandal I purchased final summer time.

Nope, once more I couldn’t slot in all 5 toes. This can be a hair wider than the Burlie, however nonetheless that is sized like a medium, not large shoe. That being stated, this can be a high quality shoe, and appears prefer it’s value its $104.95 price ticket at Nordstrom.

VANELi ‘Maxine’ Sandal

I’ve a pair of cork wedges that NEED to get replaced. For those who’ve checked out any outfit posts from me from the previous few summers you understand which footwear I’m speaking about. They’re from Aerosoles, they’re the identical colour as my ft and have small straps and are nearly invisible until I flip to the aspect and also you see the wedge. However because the wedge too is cork it doesn’t really feel as cumbersome. So I noticed these and received psyched. Cork is the colour of my pores and skin, cork is mushy and can stretch and provides. VANELi typically works for me!

I virtually stored these footwear. I might match all 5 toes into the toe strap, although my pinky was solely coated on the nail and my pinky knuckle appeared like a bunion coming out. However I used to be so thrilled to have a fragile heel semi-work I considered stretching them, taking them to a cobbler to regulate them, all types of issues. And I modeled them for my husband who stated, “These look so painful” and he was proper. There was no means I might put on these past a weblog photograph shoot and I don’t need to be that sort of blogger so I packed them up and despatched them again. But when your ft are vast however not tremendous broad and your toes are a traditional size, these are actually nice footwear. They’re by far the most effective becoming VANELis I’ve tried shortly and don’t appear to be your typical heavy extensive width shoe. They’re $134.95 at Zappos and in addition are available black and two metallics, making them nice for summer time weddings.

j. renee wide width shoe review

J. Renee

Anybody with large ft is aware of of J. Renee, particularly if they’ve needed to attend a marriage or different formal occasion. Bought at many main retailers, J. Renee footwear are dressy… however typically are slightly… excessive. Like plus measurement trend, J. Renee thinks extra is extra and sometimes takes a wonderfully pretty shoe and provides rhinestones, clear home windows, a bow, a metallic end, a gold heel, an enormous buckle… however J. Renee makes dressy footwear for vast ft which are really broad width so I dig via the drek and discover their gems.

J. Renee ‘Soncino’ Ankle Strap Sandal

Fast look, you’d assume these have been Naturalizer with the identical shade suede and cross straps. However since they’re J. Renee I ordered them figuring they might match.

They usually do match! All 5 toes even! They slid in all comfortable and cozy. I used to be tremendous psyched till I needed to buckle them… not sufficient material to get them closed even on the final gap. If in case you have a slimmer ankle (which doubtless you do as a result of my ankles are unusually thick from strolling on my toes) these are tremendous cute footwear. I ordered them from Nordstrom the place they’ve 9 totally different colours to select from and are $99.95. Select rigorously, as some are typical J. Renee OTT and others are very wearable and versatile. My suggestion is to stay with the all-suede choices until you’re in a marriage celebration and wish the frou-frou.

J. Renee ‘Emberly’ Block Heel Sandal

Look, I don’t want this shoe however I really like orange with scorching pink so I noticed this loopy shoe and ordered it considering it will look fierce with black, white, denim, olive, navy, and so forth. I figured I’d seize some pliers and take away that dangling gold allure from the aspect. We fat-footed women will go the additional mile for some respectable footwear.

Whelp, they didn’t work. If I had regular toes the toe strap would have contained all 5 and I might be reaching for my pliers and shopping for garments to justify this footwear buy as a result of they presently go together with completely nothing I personal. So perhaps destiny intervened with my tiny pinky toe. I do nonetheless assume they might be completely fierce in case you have the best wardrobe and private type. Additionally they are available all black, however that doesn’t learn fierce as a lot because the orange and pink. $89.95 at Nordstrom.

J. Renee ‘Flaviana’ Sandal

Look, I don’t want a pair of footwear like this. The loopy print gained’t go together with every thing I personal. However you understand how it’s, wide-footed women. If you discover one thing that doesn’t look orthopedic you get excited. And so I ordered these. I needed the black multi, and even the purple multi, however in my measurement they solely had the pink multi so I ordered them.

They match. They match nicely. They weren’t cushioning and comfy and cozy however they match. The ankle strap was too comfortable for consolation however I might punch one other gap in it and make it work. I used to be prepared to do all of that… however the pink went with actually nothing in my closet so I returned them. However do know I held on to them for an excellent two weeks questioning if magically my wardrobe would morph into one thing that would justify holding them as a result of they’re far more enjoyable than 99% of the broad footwear on this planet. These footwear are $90 on QVC, although I’ve discovered one-offs in numerous sizes on Amazon, Zappos, and Roaman’s.

wide width shoe review by wardrobe oxygen

Nina Footwear

One other model lots of you’re doubtless conversant in when you’ve got wanted formal large width footwear prior to now 5 years. They’re good at inoffensive types with dressy materials and delicate types with walkable heel heights. I also have a pair, you’ll be able to see them on this weblog submit. Not my highest trend footwear, however they’ve been worn to many a dressy occasion and been snug sufficient to remain on even once I enterprise onto the dance flooring.

Nina ‘Blakely’ D’Orsay Pump

I don’t want one other pair of pumps. Pumps is a method of shoe I can put on in common widths, and I don’t need one other closed toe shoe for spring and summer time. However the ‘Zest’ acid shade was calling my identify so I ordered them.

They’re nice footwear. They match nice, look nice, match the photograph. My ft have been completely satisfied. However I can’t justify buying such footwear, I simply don’t want them. However for those who want a dressy closed-toe shoe, these are an excellent selection and all 5 colours are wonderful. They’re $78.95 at Nordstrom.

Once more, purchased in desperation despite the fact that I didn’t need or want a satin peeptoe pump.

They did match, they have been comparatively snug as I strutted round in my bed room, however I returned them as a result of they don’t seem to be a very good match for my present wardrobe. They’re $78.95 at Nordstrom and are available three colours and can be a sensible choice in the event you’re in a marriage and wish a dressy shoe.

Steve Madden

Steve Madden makes extensive footwear, and primarily they’re the identical footwear that Stuart Weizman makes that Sam Edelman makes cheaper, and Steve Madden makes them cheaper than each Sam and Stuart. All these guys with S names making strappy heeled footwear… it may possibly get complicated! I’ve discovered Steve Madden to not solely be the most cost effective of all three however the widest.

Steve Madden ‘Irenee’ Sandal

This shoe doesn’t work for me. The strap is just too low and my pinky toe doesn’t match, they usually run a bit extra slender than I want. Nevertheless, I’m sharing them as a result of they’re a fantastic selection for many individuals with regular ft that are typically a bit broad. They’re the ‘nudist’ idea however with a decrease block heel making them wearable for longer. They’re bought everywhere however I’m linking to Zappos the place they’ve one of many lowest costs in addition to the most important number of colours. This can be a shoe Steve Madden has season after season so watch this shoe as new colours and variations arrive every season (which suggests previous colours go on sale!). $79.95.

David Tate

After having a child, my ft have been even wider than earlier than. On prime of that, I had plantar fasciitis and each pair of footwear that match harm. A reader instructed David Tate and I received a pair of ankle boots from them and wore them into the bottom. Like wore them a lot I took them to the cobbler but once more for a reheel and resole and polish they usually advised I simply get a brand new pair. I solely share one pair of David Tate under as a result of David Tate isn’t recognized for top style, however they’re actually top quality footwear and actually snug. The model is value a glance when you’ve got vast ft and chances are you’ll discover you’ll be able to carry off a heel with this model if you often can’t as a result of they’re very strategic with heel placement. I discover a number of David Tate at good costs at 6pm. 

David Tate ‘Autumn’ Sandal

Not dressy, however I felt these leather-based sandals appeared costly, like one thing that Tory Burch would come out with. I’d rock them with shirtdresses, white denims, an all black outfit and gold hoops.

These footwear match, and match properly. As snug as all David Tate footwear are. They usually did look costly… however the darkish brown towards my pasty white pores and skin was not cute. I’ll don a little bit of a pretend Jergens tan this summer time, however not sufficient to make these footwear look stylish on my white woman ft. Nevertheless, in case you are darker than I’m, verify these footwear out as a result of they do appear to be they’re costly or bought on a visit someplace cool. I ordered them for $145.95 on Nordstrom the place additionally they are available black (nevertheless it’s not as stylish because the brown), however I additionally discovered them at DSW for $129.99.


Sudini is like J. Renee. When the model’s footwear are good they’re very excellent and once they’re dangerous… nicely let’s concentrate on the great. Their footwear are cozy, and whereas many manufacturers appear to be slicing corners Sudini runs a bit wider and larger than you’d anticipate.

Sudini ‘Novara’ Block Heel Sandal

Those that comply with my Instagram Tales might acknowledge these footwear and my disappointment in making an attempt them on. I assumed these footwear seemed fairly badass in silver. One thing trendy and architectural and would have individuals asking the place I obtained them.

They have been cozy. They match even on my ankles. They appeared costly and the leather-based was tremendous good. My pinky toes didn’t match underneath the toe strap. When you’ve got regular ft, order these. Gladiator sandals are nonetheless a well-liked development and this can be a enjoyable spin on it that can be stylish longer than a real gladiator. They arrive in six colours, I personally assume the silver is the good of all of them however you would doubtless rock any of them and look far more stylish than you’d in 99% of another extensive footwear available on the market. $139.95 at Nordstrom.

Bella Vita

I’ve owned a number of pairs of footwear by Bella Vita through the years. I did a marketing campaign with a shoe web site years in the past and ordered a pair and have become hooked on the model which carries Slender, Medium, Extensive, and Additional Extensive footwear. The Bella Vita ‘Oriana’ in gold is my favourite summer time shoe two years operating and I’ll cry once they crumble as a result of they not make them. 

Bella Vita ‘Imo’ Slide

Since my gold Bella Vita gladiators are beginning to look worse for put on, I assumed these could possibly be a alternative, additionally in gold.

Nope. They seem like bathe footwear on me. They did include the pinky toe, nevertheless it rubbed on the toe they usually simply weren’t as cute as I assumed they might be. I feel these can be higher on an extended foot. I obtained them at Nordstrom for $79.95 they usually additionally are available brown and black.

Bella Vita ‘Tanya’ Sandal

I ordered these purely as a result of they’re Bella Vita and I knew they might match. They’re lovely footwear however they don’t seem to be what I want proper now.

The leather-based is good, every part is good about them besides they don’t go together with my spring and summer time wardrobe. However attempt them, all 4 colours are stylish and they might be a implausible work sandal and in addition tremendous elegant with a pair of kick flare pants or cropped denims. $99.95 at Nordstrom.

The heels are what maintain me coming again to ASOS for footwear as a result of they’re the one ‘nudist’ type footwear I’ve ever discovered that match and corral my pinky toes. ASOS has an superior delivery and return coverage.

Glamorous Kitten-Heeled Sandals

These are tremendous cute and a really wearable heel peak. The ankle strap can also be good and roomy. Sadly my silly pinky toes wouldn’t cooperate so I needed to return them. $32 

ASOS Design ‘Widsom’ Block Heel Sandal

No, I didn’t want gold sandals with a rainbow striped block heel however I couldn’t resist! They usually match too! Nevertheless, they’re a bit heavy and your woman Allie does NOT want these footwear in her closet so I despatched them again. $72 

New Look Broad Match Heeled Sandal

My favourite black strappy heels are from New Look. They’re 4 years previous and nonetheless kicking and I am keen on them.

wide width shoe review


Oh Munro, you make some phenomenally snug and properly made footwear however gosh darn if most of them are fugly. Bizarre awkward heels, extremely large straps, bizarre mixes of colours and textures of cloth… these are footwear you put on once you don’t care what different individuals assume however you do care about your ft.

They have been costlier than I needed to pay for sandals, however I knew Munro to be high quality and took a deep breath and ordered them.

Oh Em Gee. These footwear really feel like a Sleepnumber mattress in your ft. The leather-based is tremendous smooth and I feel padded so even the straps are snug. The Velcro, in contrast to many footwear, is positioned so you possibly can put on them when you have a slim ankle or a large one. They cradled my ft higher than my Birkenstocks. However… that darn pinky toe. It coated simply the tip of the toe however as I walked the toe would peek out and I simply knew it might trigger a blister. I used to be unhappy as a result of these footwear felt their complete pricetag after which some. I don’t assume the black is as stylish because the silver until you rock a Rick Owens aesthetic. These are $219.95 at Nordstrom.

Miscellaneous Different Large Width Footwear I’ve Lately Tried…

Tuscany by Straightforward Road ‘Aida’ Slingback Sandal

This may be an off-the-cuff summer time sandal that may be a step up from what I presently have. I ordered them in white considering it might be dressy.

In the event you’re in search of an off-the-cuff sandal this summer time, this can be a good selection. I don’t love the distinction stitching, however it’s not so dangerous on the blue or white choices. $59.95 at Nordstrom.
