Toe Shapes for the Perfect Fit

To ensure enough room for toes to move and spread, we offer men’s shoes in two different toe shapes – round or square.

Here are just a few ideas…

Wide-fitting Classic Casual Styles

Our casual styles are the mainstay of our men's wide-fitting shoes range, perfect for weekend wear and those more relaxed days, in soft leathers and fabrics with lightweight, flexible soles.

Or, if you require a square toe-shape, how about classic square-toed strap fastening Benny, lace-up Bob or slip-on Dalton, with twin-elastic gusset for ease of entry?

Our casual and classic styles come with air-bubble sole, leather uppers and removable insoles to create more room for feet or the insertion of specialist insoles.

Wide-fitting Men's Trainers

We all know that keeping active is so important, but it's difficult when you can’t find the right footwear. Nobody wants to go out exercising in shoes that pinch or rub and this can lead to a vicious circle of inactivity that can lead to ill health.

Our trainers are designed with all the features you'd expect from our shoes to ensure total comfort while you get out and active.

Lace-up styles like round toe shape Dawson or suede material Wakefield offer a secure fit to reduce rubbing alongside adjustability if your feet swell during the day, whilst strap fastening styles like athritis friendly Logan, grippy rubbr sole Stephen and wide opening Devon offer easier access alongside adjustability.

Open Quotations These shoes are really comfortable- far more so than I anticipated. I am even thinking of buying another pair for when they wear out :) Close Quotation

For many gentlemen, especially those with arthritis, lymphedema or other foot health conditions, easy foot access is very important.

In these cases our easy access styles could be just what the doctor ordered (literally).

You’ll find easy access designs across our casuals, trainers and slipper ranges, so there’s something for everyone.
