Really wide shoes

(13 Posts)

I have really odd feet size 31/2 or 4 and EEE fitting. So when I'm 90 and don't mind wearing tartan, furry lined bobble adorned Velcro closed horrors I'll change my name to Imelda and go on a spree.
Until then I still need to find something that fits and doesn't make me feel like crying. I'll be in London for a couple of days shortly any suggestions where I can look? PLEASE

Evans sell wide fit shoes and some of them are really wide.

I've also got very wide fit and none of the 'Wide Fit' ranges from other shops fit me.

Thanks will try and look for Ted and Muffy did they use to be called something else. Never thought about Evans so a couple of possibilities.
I had emailed Hotter to ask why they did so few styles in EEE and they say insufficient demand.
Worth a quick email?

Look online at Hassia. They are expensive but very well made and don't look as wide as they are. I get the ballet pumps, which are completely different from flimsy fashion ballet pumps, have a bit of a wedge and make my large, wide feet look reasonably proportioned. They have an insole which can be removed to make extra width if you need it.

Simply be do eee fitting shoes and boots as well. I find Evans too wide but simply be are pretty spot on.

Yours Clothing have wide fit shoes, and Simply Be. Evans wide fit are weirdly big - I have size 4.5 to 5 feet and found a beautiful pair of burnt orange suede wedges, but even the 4 was way too big and they don't do a 3. So you might find they are too big unless you go for a style with a strap.

Off the wall suggestion but at a size 3 or 4 what about Clarks children's?

You can get up to a g width fitting.

You can get some nice boots, ballerina pumps, trainers etc

Not so good for heels obviously!

the only styles that hotter do in Extra wide are the ones your great granny might sigh and wear. Shame, since I like some of the styles they don't do extra wide.

I'm 5-5.5EEE. Usually wear a 39 for a big enough heelcup and toebox, as the toes is where I'm really wide. I live in Nike trainers when it's warm and dry and Camel Active boots when it's not. Josef Siebel sometimes come up trumps.

If you're wide in the heel, then Merrel will probably fit well. They're wide in the wrong places for me!

Some of the Clarks styles such as Funny Dream fit my feet at the toes in a 5.5, but are too loose at the heel, so I can't walk in them.

Forgot Vivobarefoot. Perfect fit (but I fall over in them because I do need the support they famously don't offer!)

Thanks lots of names to look at. Anyone know if these have actual stores I can visit in London. It gets annoying buying and returning via post. If you would like hotter to do more styles in the EEE please nag them by email. Sadly the G in Clarks kids is much narrower than an EEEsad

I get mine from Evans but I'm not keen on the style. There is a wicked shop on oxfird street called ulanka they do boots that fit my 5 eee foot. Maybe try them?
