Hello, please help me and my moosive feet.

My feet are like EEE or EEE width fitting tho only a size 6 so I prefer round toe styles to make my feet look cute and like they belong to an actual lady person. But depending on the cut of the shoe or boot, sometimes I still can't get my feet in blush. So no pull-on styles.

I recently tried an extra wide fit pair from Evans that I couldn't even get on. Clarks don't have anything I want that will fit me at the moment, I basically hate everything available from the specialist wide-feet websites as they don't have much in real leather and the styles are a little hmm.

So my question is, can anyone who also has flippers tell me if they have had any luck with any particular Fly London or Dr Marten boots or shoes? I kind of need to know the actual style as it varies so much, thank-you please and thank-you again. Or similar, anything, any brand, made of leather or suede and no more than inch high heel at the most, anything, anything, except a welly.

I have wide feet too. I can wear Converse, Gabor boots, and I have Caterpillar boots but weirdly the child's size fit me better. I also have a pair of Clarks boots that are my old lady boots but they are so lovely. Fleece lined, flat and wide. Annoyingly due to losing 19lbs my wide leg boots and wellies are now too big.

Ignore me. Didn't answer your question blush.

Duo Boots also sell width fitting shoes, that is where I go - they even have an outlet store that is linked from the main Duo Boots site smile

I am LOVING my new Vivo Barefoot winter boots, they are so comfy and I think they look fab. I'm a size 8.5 as well as being extremely wide of foot,nso you should listen to me!

PS - if you're ever tempted to squeeze into a narrower fitting, google morton's neuroma. Very unpleasant, and why I have made a vow not to mistreat my boats feet any more!

MousyMouse Sat 08-Dec-12 21:42:54

have you looked at ecco or gabor ?

Jins Sat 08-Dec-12 21:51:04

I'm living in a pair of crocs berryessa buckle boots at the moment which are almost too wide. Never had that problem before.

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 21:53:36

Thanks ladies, I have been trawling back through the MN archives (again) for advice...

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 21:55:52

I am just looking through your links now... smile wine

RandomMess Sat 08-Dec-12 21:56:07

Duo boots (& shoes)

Jins Sat 08-Dec-12 21:58:48,en_GB,pd.html?cid=060&q=Berryessa

Crocs berryessa. I had a code for 20% off but I think it's expired sad

Obstreperous Sat 08-Dec-12 21:59:27

these are the ones I have

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:02:29

So from Ecco:
These, maybe

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:05:20

Those are a possibility, Obstreperous, thanks, I'll have a good look through that site. The calves look like they are a bit wide though, I don't want to be looking like a pirate on the nursery run. Are they wider than standard?

SauvignonBlanche Sat 08-Dec-12 22:05:42

Shoe Tailor?

hermioneweasley Sat 08-Dec-12 22:05:51

I have EE fitting feet and am a 6 in a wide fitting shoe. I have had the same DM boots for about 20 years and they are great - no width issues at all. Also no probs with any trainers, converse etc. for summer it used to be Birkenstocks, but I was utterly converted to fit flops this year. I o ky have the flip flop style ones but they are really wide, so it might be worth checking out their shoes and boots.

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:08:24

Thank-you for the tip Jins but I think I'm after something a bit more everyday, I don't want to go ahead and say smart/casj, like a foo-ul but something maybe winter-suitable but also indoor-suitable and then maybe I will also get some wellies for the wildy park trips.

daisydoodoo Sat 08-Dec-12 22:09:24

Have you looked in new look? They sell wide fitting shoes in lots of variations boots as well. Also next sell wide and extra wide fitting footwear.

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:11:07

Having a look at Duoboots now, apparently their "narrow" fit shoes are 21 cm wide. Even my feet aren't that wide, that's mental. Probably a mistake

DorisIsWaiting Sat 08-Dec-12 22:14:15

I'm EEE wide as well I have boots from viva la diva which I love (people with normal feet have said how nice they are!).

DorisIsWaiting Sat 08-Dec-12 22:15:49

Those Ecco ones don't look particularly wide fit...

DorisIsWaiting Sat 08-Dec-12 22:18:37

viva la diva EEE boots here they also do EEEE fitting

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:20:16

The only ones I liked from Duoboots were not made in a wide fitting, though i will definitely check back with them for warmer-weather-shoes.

Obstreperous Sat 08-Dec-12 22:21:27

The pic makes them look a lot wider than they are.

I can zip up normal calf fittings (albeit snugly), which should give you and idea of my calf size. The calf on these is a perfect fit. At least, no one's yet yelled, 'Avast, me hearties' at me from across the street grin.

rozdoylesnaughtydrawer Sat 08-Dec-12 22:21:57

Thanks Doris but no, I don't like anything from Viva La Diva or any of those kind of websites unfortunately. I am stupidly fussy but only because I like quite simple designs if you know what I mean.

Next and New Look I have not found to be wide enough on the whole.
