At this time all of our women’s sizes are made in a standard B width, and all of our men’s sizes are made in a standard D width.
If you have a narrow foot, we offer shoe inserts that can help take up excess space right where you need it, or you might wish to check out your local drug store for a large selection of padding and inserts.
If you need a wider shoe, there are a few potential ways to get a great fit.
One option is to order your usual size and stretch the shoe. This tends to be successful when you need some extra width in a specific spot (say to accommodate a bunion) or just need a bit of extra width in the front of the shoe. Stretching up one width (say a B to a C) often works well, but trying to jump up multiple widths is not likely to result in a comfortable fit, as the uppers may stretch but the sole doesn’t get any bigger! Please note that once stretched, shoes are not returnable.
Another option is to order a half size up. If you have a wide foot and often buy regular width shoes, you may be doing this already! This is a common fix and can work well, but the potential downside is that you might end up with a too-long shoe.
We also offer a small selection of styles that come in BOTH women’s and men’s sizing. This allows folks of any gender to pick the size range that fits them best. If you have larger, wider feet, you may find the men’s sizes fit you best; if you have smaller, narrower feet, you might find a better fit using the women’s sizes.
