Hi,

I'm looking for some comfy flat sandals for very wide feet. Any ideas as to what I should get? I'd prefer them to be black in colour.

Thanks for your help! smile

I haven't bought any this year but the wedge heel on Buttercup is very similar to the comfortable ones I own.

Stiffy, I am really enamoured with the Moshulu shoes. I think they may be for me! I need a sandal that doesn't look too clumpy, with a strap around the ankle, and a pairly padded sole. I think Fairy Bell, Buttercup, Wild Rose or Moselle could be possibilities - do you by any chance have any of those?

Also, as someone who usually can't cope with anything other than flats, their wedges are extremely comfortable. I can wear them all day without noticing.

Yes, Happy, lots of them have padded soles. I share your needs! Hopefully the item description specifies which ones. Some are birki style soles too.

Stiffy Loving the moshulu link, as yes, they do look comfortable. I may have found another choice above footglove and ecco! Is the sole padded in any way to cushion the sole of your foot? I find that so many shoes seem to have a hard sole which makes walking any distance painful for me ( I am very delicate, obviously!)

Buttery, I came to the conclusion years ago (when I was about 25) that, for me, the priority with shoes was for them to be comfortable rather than look bang on trend. This is probably because the little strappy sandals and high heels were never ever comfortable for me, and I walk a great deal, so I had no choice really but to come to that conclusion. But it was the best decision I ever made. Now, with even wider feet AND the dreaded bunions, I know what I'm looking for. And whenever I see it, I buy it, in a few colours.

Which is why I have those gladiator m and s wide fitting footglove sandals in dark blue (very nice indeed) and brown. And I also have these, which are just as comfortable, in pink (trust me, they're a lot nicer in real life, a much more grown up shade o pink, if such a thing exists) m and s wide footglove pink sandals

I can't tell you how pleased I was, in March, to know that I would be comfortable in sandals all summer long. And I got 20% off and free delivery too.

I have wide feet and every pair of Moshulu sandals I have bought have been very comfortable.

Thanks everyone! smile

the hush puppies look comfy but are a little pricey!

Why do all the wide fitting comfy ones look so mumsy? hmm

BreasticlesNTesticles Mon 06-May-13 22:50:17

They are amazing aren't they Happy

Look nice with casual dresses and skirts too

From a cheaper end ...

Try yours, simply be and also pavers. They all do very wide fitting shoes smile

Breasticles, I have those m and s gladiator sandals in dark blue and brown. I have worn them all day today, and they have been really comfortable. I have E width feet, and bunions (nice combination!) and I have huuuuuuge problems buying shoes. I am limited to m and s footglove wide and ecco, so I was delighted to find these.

those shoes are uglier even than the cornish pasty porn ones on the other thread

JimbosJetSet Mon 06-May-13 19:58:44

BTW I am a E/EE fitting and Hush Puppies are wide enough for me grin

VisitorTheDog Mon 06-May-13 19:53:37

Because if they are I want a pink pair too grin

JimbosJetSet Mon 06-May-13 19:53:31

Hush Puppies! Seem to come wide as standard and many of their styles are very soft leather. Brantano usually carry quite a good range.

VisitorTheDog Mon 06-May-13 19:50:18

ArcticRoll do you think the seasalt sandals stretch a bit? I've got a pair and they're a bit tight around the front if my foot. Wondering if they're going to improve!

Dollydowser Mon 06-May-13 19:34:10

I have wide feet, too wide for Fit flos, and I don't like myself in Birkenstocks. I stand up for many hours for my job, and I have found Naot Ashley's to be really comfortable (read the reviews on Amazon). I have had them in black, now wearing the red, and had many, many compliments. I bought them from a shop in Guildford which is now closed down, not sure where to get them from in the UK now though.

Desti Mon 06-May-13 18:19:48

These dark laze slide sandals?

ButteryJam Mon 06-May-13 18:04:10

Went into town today, and Birkenstocks look so uncomfy!!! Flip flops looked ok but are too pricey. The wide feet ones in M&S, the back straps hurt the back of my feet when walking, and Gabor too bit looked too stiff. So I'm back to square one now ... Any further ideas?

BreasticlesNTesticles Mon 06-May-13 16:55:21

Fine, but I have prob an E fitting feet?

greenshoes

Women's corporative, they will make them for you in any finish, leather or other, hundreds to choose from, any sole, they draw round your feet, (or you can do so and send it in on their special chart) they take measurements of every aspect of your foot,

and if you do ever manage to wear them out, they will resole them for you.

It will be the most comfortable pair of shoes you ever own and last for years.
