Wide Fit Vegan Shoes & Boots For 2023

Wide Fit Vegan Shoes & Boots For 2023
Finding wide or extra wide fitting shoes that are comfortable and stylish is hard enough. But finding vegan shoes and boots in wider fittings is almost impossible, right?

Well, not any more!

Here at DB Shoes we pride ourselves on designing footwear especially for people with wide, deep or problem feet that they can wear in total confidence that their styles are fashionable, whilst having the features that offer complete comfort from the first wear.

And people living a vegan lifestyle should not be excluded from this.

That’s why we’ve been working hard to create a range of wide and extra wide fitting shoes boots and slippers that are suitable for vegans.

We use a clever combination of textiles, animal product free stretch fabrics, faux leather and more, all held together with animal free stitching and glues, so you can be sure you’re making the conscious choice.

Fifteen fantastic Vegan Shoes & Boots for 2023

Wide-fitting Vegan Boots

Having mentioned our beautiful autumn 2023 range of vegan-friendly boot styles with asymmetric toe shape, we’d be remiss not to start with those!

1. Mid-length lace-up boot Giselle is first up; with 21cm height and calf circumference up to 35cm. The laces ensure a secure fit but also superb adjustability to ensure the perfect fit for your calves.

And don’t worry, there’s a handy inside zip, meaning you only have to set the laces once and then use the zip for easy access!

The asymmetric toe shape follows the shape of your foot for a more comfortable fit. Perfect with patterned dresses or jeans.

2. Muntjac is another mid-length boot in imitation leather with built-in adjustability and easy access.

The three adjustable, cut-to-fit straps ensure you can get your perfect fit up top 35cm circumference and the inside zip opens right down to the sole for super easy access. The stylish 1 ½" heel adds height too.

They’re also arthritis friendly and SO comfy!

Open Quotations I'm a new DB customer and I'm delighted with the three pairs of shoes I've bought. I'd reached the stage where walking was so difficult that I was in constant pain. Now, I'm walking comfortably, even when road surfaces are rough and so my fitness and physical stability are improving. The side zip in my boots means I can take them off easily and it's great to have the option of inserting insoles. I was very pleased with the speed of delivery too and would recommend you to anyone who, like me, has problem feet. Thank you very much! Close Quotation
