Buying sneakers for wide feet is a real chore and those who know the struggle will know that you can’t always tell at first sight. Even the widest-looking sneakers can squash your feet into tiny interiors because of invisible inner padding. That’s why we’ve taken it upon ourselves to put together a list of running shoes for wide feet.

It’s always important to have shoes that fit properly but never more so than when you’re running. The wrong fit can cause serious injury over time and distance, putting you out of the game unnecessarily. Plus, the world of running shoes is filled with sleek, narrow designs that simply don’t work for the wide-feet gang. We’ve found that New Balance running sneakers are usually the kindest in terms of width.

Below are 9 pairs of running shoes for wide feet from New Balance. Ranging from trail runners to racers and more balanced long-distance running shoes, there’s a pair for everyone with wide feet.
