While our wide range of sneaker options caters to a wide range of people, no two feet are alike. Anyone who follows the latest touted arrivals knows that certain sizes sell out faster than others, but we frequently overlook another important aspect of sneaker sizing: width. As a result, we’ve produced a list of all the top shoes for broad feet on the market right now.
Those that walk about with wider-than-average feet will understand the challenge of tightness when they aren’t wearing the correct shoes. People with larger forms should look for a sneaker that gives more room to breathe, not just to avoid blister-causing friction, but also to avoid long-term injury to their feet.
Fortunately, wide-footed shoes are available from companies like New Balance, Nike, HOKA One One, and ASICS. We’ll all be able to tell you the length of the shoe you need at the store, but do you know which of the nine widths your feet need? The width measurements run from AAA (ultra narrow) to AA, A, B, C, D, E, EE, and EEE, from narrowest to widest (very wide).
EE-width sneakers, which measure between 3.4 and 5.4 inches across the sole of the ball of the foot depending on the length of the shoe, aren’t available for every model. Because a broader foot usually means a wider trunk, many EE-sized shoes feature lightweight soles and additional comfort-enhancing technology.
Fortunately for those in need, chunkier types of many of the Nike Sneakers For Men available in these sizes have long been popular in fashion circles, and recent street style lookbooks show no signs of that trend ending in the near future.
Check out our full selection of wide-footed shoes below, which includes anything from orthopaedic dad core vibes in every width to slicker silhouettes that will naturally offer you the room you need.

Adidas Ultraboost 4.0 DNA Sneakers
