Extra Wide Fashion Shoes & Heels

Stepping out in style for Christmas parties and other special occasions should be something to look forward to without worrying about being in pain.

We hear from many of our customers that, until they discovered our shoes, these occasions were filled with dread as they’d have to make the choice between wearing trainers or even flip-flops to a party, or wearing dress shoes and be in excruciating pain all day (and often the next!).

This is not a choice that you should have to make, and our dress shoes and boots mean you don’t have to choose. You can have style AND comfort. You can look the part in confidence that your feet will feel as good as you look.

That’s right, we’re even offering our most stylish fashion boot options in our widest 6V(6E-8E) fitting.

Catch the eye with dress heel boot Carrie or dress heel boot Belmont, both bunion-friendly and with 2 ¼ inch heel, and both simply stunning, we’re sure you’ll agree.

Extra Wide Boots

As we endeavour to ensure that as many of our styles as possible are available to as many people as possible, we continue to increase the number of boot styles in our extra wide fittings, introducing new extra wide fitting biker boot styles like inside zip-up Reef, diabetes friendly boots Bayeux and new floral patterned leather biker boot Kestrel, that’s causing a stir for all the right reasons!

Leather or suede uppers, grippy rubber soles and removable insoles for extra internal room or the insertion of orthotics make these boots perfect for wider feet. The combination of laces and inside zips means that you can set the laces to the correct fit once and use the zip for easy access, ensuring a secure fit, adjustability and ease of wear.

There is also a huge selection of casual and sporty boots too, that are super versatile to dress up or down, like square-toed ankle boot Andes and mid-length leather boot Badger.

Stretch ankle boots Santa and twin zip boots Stoke are sporty boots with added stretch: clever seam-free stretch fabric toe-boxes that mould to the shape of your feet for reduced rubbing and total comfort. SO comfy!
