Best Wide Toe Box Shoes for a More Comfortable Fit



Luna Nude & Cream Leather - Wide Toe Box Flats




Comfort is king – from the morning school run to glamorous red carpet events. But finding shoes that blend style with comfort can be a challenge, particularly if you suffer from common foot conditions like bunions, claw toes, or hammer toes.


If that sounds like you, you may be considering buying a pair of wide toe box shoes in a bid to avoid pesky pains such as foot cramping or blisters, typical when wearing a standard pair with a narrower end.


Concerned they might look too bulky? Don’t worry! Our super-stylish orthopaedic shoes prove that a wide toe box can not only feel good but look fabulous too. In this blog, we'll explore how to find the perfect shoe for you, so the only thing left to worry about is which accessories to pair them with!



How we picked the Best Wide Toe Box Shoes


Long gone are the days when wide-toed shoes forego style; at Sole Bliss, we have carefully picked out the best styles of shoes to provide sufficient space for wide feet and bunions without coming last in the fashion stakes.


All our shoes from our Wide Fit footwear collection feature a deep and wide toe box, which provides an ingenious design that is the equivalent width and volume of up to three sizes larger than your usual size, large enough so your feet can relax into the shoe without squeezing into any tight spaces.


In addition to this, our revolutionary stretch panel, the Bunion Bed®, is strategically positioned inside your shoes to accommodate bunions and wide feet, cushioning and supporting them in blissful comfort. The Bunion Bed® is cleverly concealed within the shoe lining, making it invisible from the outside and stylishly minimising the appearance of bunions.


And for extra comfort? Our shoes are made from luxuriously soft Italian and Spanish leathers, of the finest quality, and in a vast range of styles including high heels, loafers, and even ballet flats.

Do you need wide toe box shoes?


Now that you’ve seen some of the pairs we have on offer, you may be wondering if you fit the criteria for shoes with a wide toe box.


Firstly, if your foot fits the length of your shoes but you’re finding your toes often feel cramped and squeezed, it might indicate that you may need some extra wiggle room. Also, when you’re trying on shoes, make sure you pay careful attention to how your shoes are fitting in the toe area.


Do they feel restricted? Are you struggling to move your toes around freely? Do you regularly suffer from blisters or rubbing? If the answer to all three questions is yes, this may indicate that shoes with a wide toe box are necessary.


If the upper part of your shoes, especially around the toe box, shows excessive stretching, then it is likely that your shoes are too narrow. However, if you’re still unsure, consider consulting a podiatrist or a professional shoe fitter who can provide a detailed foot analysis and recommendations based on your specific needs.



Trinity: Sky Blue Suede - Loafers with a Wide Toe Box




What to Look For in Wide Toe Box Shoes


So, you’ve confirmed that you need shoes with a wide toe box, but where do you begin? Firstly, and it may seem obvious, but ensure that you choose a pair of shoes specifically designed for wide feet, ensuring your toes have ample room to spread naturally without feeling the pinch.


Aside from this, there are several other features to look out for. Shoes with a wide toe box should fit well, securing your heel and midfoot without slipping, while still allowing your toes some freedom. Additionally, you should have good arch support, especially if you’re wearing your shoes for a long period of time.


At Sole Bliss, we are proud to offer shoes which boast superior arch support, thanks to three layers of high-quality, anti-bacterial, custom cushioning memory foam. This cushion does more than provide comfort; it also acts as an anti-pronation device to counter the inward rolling of the foot.


We would also recommend looking for shoes with adjustable features, such as laces, buckles or straps. This can help you to customise your fit, ensuring extra comfort and stability, which is especially important in wide toe box shoes to ensure they aren’t too loose.


Finally, we always recommend ordering two sizes to ensure the shoes are comfortable and fit both of your feet properly, as even different models from the same brand can vary slightly in size.




Verity: Nude Leather - Wide Toe Heels





How do you know if your Toe Box is Wide enough?


Still unsure if your toe box is wide enough? Let us break down the key factors you need to look out for while wearing your new shoes:


  1. Your toes should be able to wiggle freely without restriction.
  2. Your toes should be able to lay flat and point forward naturally, without being pushed inwards or forced to overlap.
  3. Take your thumb and place it on top of your longest toe. The width of your thumb should be the minimum amount of space between your longest toe and the end of your shoe.
  4. Don’t forget to consider the sides of your shoes; if they press painfully against the sides of your feet or create bulges in the material, then you need a wider toe box.
  5. Are your shoes comfy while you walk? Pay close attention to how you walk while wearing them. Your toes should remain comfortable without feeling squeezed.



Are there any Activities for which Wide Toe Box Shoes are particularly good?


You’ve found your perfect pair and are ready to seize the day, but which activities are improved by wearing wide toe box shoes? Outdoor enthusiasts will be pleased to know that hiking and trail running are ideal. Wide toe box shoes allow your feet to spread naturally, aiding balance and stability on uneven terrain—great news for hikers navigating rocks, roots, and varying inclines.


Long-distance runners and walkers will also benefit from wide toe box shoes. Since feet typically swell during prolonged activity, having extra room in your shoes can help reduce the risk of blisters and chafing. For keen walkers, this extra space can also lessen the likelihood of developing or worsening foot conditions such as bunions and hammertoes, ultimately avoiding fatigue and pain.


By choosing the right wide toe box shoes, you’re not just investing in your comfort but also in the health of your feet. To view our full range please visit:
