While Highsnobiety's breadth of sneaker coverage is geared towards anyone and everyone, no two feet were created the same. Anyone who keeps up with the latest hyped releases will know that certain sizes tend to sell out faster than others, but we often disregard another key component of sneaker sizing — width. This being the case, we've compiled a selection of all the best shoes for wide feet available right now.

For those going about their days on wider-than-average feet, you'll know all too well the struggle of tightness when you're not rocking the right footwear. Just like how anyone with narrow feet should pay attention to the width of their shoe to make sure they don't come loose, people with wider shapes should be mindful of finding a sneaker that offers more room to breathe, not only to keep blister-causing friction at bay, but to avoid long-term damage to your feet.

Fortunately, brands such as New Balance, HOKA One One, adidas, and more all produce shoes tailored toward wide feet. We'll all be able to readily recite the length of the shoe we need at the store, but do you know which of the nine widths your feet require? From narrowest to widest, width measurements go from AAA (super narrow) through AA, A, B, C, D, E, EE, and EEE (very wide).

On the wider end of the spectrum, EE-width sneakers aren't carried for every model, and measure between 3.4 and 5.4 inches across the bottom of the ball of the foot depending on the length of the shoe. As a wider foot generally comes with a wider trunk on top, many EE-sized shoes also come with lightweight soles and extra comfort-enhancing tech, too.

Lucky for those who need them, the chunkier styles of many of the sneakers available in these sizes have also long been having their moment among fashion circles, and recent street style lookbooks show no sign of that trend abating any time soon.

For those looking for a wide fitting shoe who don't want to bother themselves with searching for the correct width classification, further reddit investigation found that shoes with a naturally wider toe-box — such as the Nike SB Dunk Lows or Off-White OOO Sneakers featured in our list — tend to be a safe bet. That means that 2022 is a great year for those with wider feet.

Take a look at our full round-up of shoes for wide feet below, which features everything from orthopedic dadcore vibes available in any width, to slicker silhouettes that'll naturally give you the space you need.

YEEZYs are another one to keep an eye on if you're perpetually trying to find wide shoes. But worth noting is that while these feel roomy inside, the length of the shoe might feel short. Be sure to cop a half or whole size up for a comfier fit.
