Saltwaters for wide feet?

Does such a thing exist? I think they're super cute and the only sandals that have ever tempted me away from my beloved Birkies.

I have wide feet and wear them. Buy a size bigger than what you are [ as recommended] Think they have a cut out you can print out to check sizes. Also you can put your feet in a bucket of warm water with them on and they stretch to your feet. Mine are super comfy. They got better once i had worn them swimming!

I have size US10 wide feet and love my Saltwater sandals.

I tried them on in Office and couldn't even squeeze my foot in sad

If they are the original shape, then you have to tug the sides with your thumbs to squeeze your foot in. They also stretch and mold to your feet, especially in water - either immerse your sandaled foot, or pour water over the top. I have wide feet too and they are great.

They stretch a lot. I also have a pair of th ones that have a buckle on the toe strap bit which are even wider. I think they're the classic style.

They're perfect for wide feet in my experience.

Yep. Wide of foot here ( I even own a shoe stretcher to attempt to make shoes more comfortable). Salt waters are great for wide feet and they wear well too. However they are just very very thin and super flat of sole, especially if you are used to Birkenstocks.

No good for my wide feet, my feet were spilling out of them when I tried them last year. I didn't try the soaking and stretching because they were too pricey to take a chance on in case it didn't work.

FunkinEll - I agree with you. At first they're tight but once you walk with them they stretch really quickly. I think mine stretched to perfection after three blocks.

Now they're very very comfortable.

I have very wide feet and find Saltwaters fine. (Another one who owns a shoe stretcher here!)
