The Difference Between Our Regular & Wide Fit Styles

The Difference Between Our Regular & Wide Fit Styles

22nd Aug 2019

We're here to answer you questions about how our shoes fit...

Choosing footwear, whether you have bunions, wide feet or just wanting extremely comfortable and stylish shoes, can be difficult. Just because you have a bunion DOES NOT mean you have wide feet!

All  Sole Bliss shoes are made for women with bunions or wide feet. We have ensured that our shoes are perfectly in proportion, whilst offering ample space at the front to accommodate your bunions. Closed-back shoes have been designed to hold your heels securely in place, and sling-back styles have had the straps expertly pitched to ensure an ideal fit.

When considering which style of shoes to choose, consider the width of your feet irrespective of your bunions. As the Bunion Bed ® inside all Sole Bliss shoes stretched to accommodate very size bunion, consider your general foot shape and follow the guidelines below:

Which Shoes Do I Buy for Bunions?

If you have slim to average width feet with slight to severe bunions, our regular fit shoes should be suitable for you.

However, if you have wide feet with mild to severe bunions, then you will benefit from trying our wider fit shoes.

What are Regular and Wide Fit Shoes?

Our shoe constructions come in two categories, regular fit and wide fit. For example, our  'Carmen' court shoe is a regular fit style whereas our 'Ingrid' court shoe is designed to be a wider fit. 'Ingrid' features an almond-toe shape to enable more room for your toes and comes in various soft materials to contour to the shape of your foot.

What Type of Shoes are Suitable for Your Bunions and Wide Feet?

It is recommended that bunion sufferers look for shoes that accommodate and cushion their bunions whilst providing plenty of support.  Sole Bliss shoes for bunions and problem feet are recommended by podiatrists as:

1. The deep and spacious toe box prevents overcrowding of toes and disguises the appearance of bunions.

2. The triple layer of underfoot cushioning provides all day comfort.

3. The supportive shape at the back of our shoe provides maximum ankle grip to prevent the ankle rolling.

4. The anti-pronation device offers arch support and stops over-pronating.

"Our shoes cushion and comfort your feet, during those special events where you should be enjoying yourself and not feeling uncomfortable."

How Our Shoes for Bunions and Wide Feet Work

Can Materials Affect the Way Shoes Fit?

Everyone's feet are individual, but our shoes are developed to fit as consistently as possible across a range of different styles. The style, construction and materials can affect the fit. A shoe made from patent leather may feel tighter than the same style made from suede due to how the material contours and moves with your foot. Leather is a natural material and will stretch over time to adapt to the shape of your foot. We provide styles in half sizes and different width fittings to accommodate each individual variation of sizes.

What Shoes are Suitable for Small Bunions?
