Desparate help please - wider trainers

(11 Posts)

I want some NICE trainers/casual shoes. Funky ones, mostly white and leather rather than canvas. Possibly suede.

Converse clearly too narrow. Stan Smiths, too narrow. My yearned for cream addidas gazelles, too narrow.

I had great hopes of white leather supergas. Guess what sad

I just want something nice, classic but funky. I swear I never had this much grief when I was a 90s indie kid with my pumas glued to my feet.

Any ideas please. Truly am desparate. Oh and I like the trainers you slip on but my stupid weird high arched feet never fit them.

I have small stupid stumpy hobbit feet btw. 4.5/5. So can't get men's or anything. Unless they are hobbit mens.

I have super-wide feet, to the point that Clarks wide-fit are too narrow, also a size 4 and I have Gazelles, Stan Smiths and various Nikes. I buy from the "junior" section, not sure if they are cut wider for kids (possibly boys)?

Superga all the way. I always think they must have been developed for people with wide feet.

I love the adidas climacool range. Think they come in small sizes.

climacool at amazon

Rocket dogs are wide.

I bought a pair of adidas superstars today - they're definitely wider than the Stan Smiths I used to have.

Try rocket dog avoid adidas unless you're 12

I have stupidly wide feet and tiny hobbit size too, generally find sketchers are very wide , and there is some quite nice ones. Also reeboks have worked well in the past too-although can you even get reeboks nowadays?

Thank you. Am going into town at lunchtime and will see what I can find. Will revisit the addidas options as I do like them the most (yes, am secretly 12).

Do Rocketdog do leather as well as canvas?

No, only canvas as far as I know. But I'd suggest popping into somewhere like schuh to have a look as they usually carry that make.

Look in Size? if you have one close by, they have a better selection than the usual high street shops. Don't give up on adidas, the width varies hugely from style to style. I have wide feet and about 200 pairs of adidas trainers blush
