Want to know what are the best Wide-fitting Sandals? Here are our Top 10 wide and extra wide fitting sandals for 2023:
The best wide-fitting footbed Sandals
Summer 2023 sees the introduction of our new range of footbed sandals, delivering an extra level of style and comfort for the warmer months.
These styles feature a broad tread and cut-to-fit adjustable straps so, although they are available in our 2V (EE-4E) variable width fitting, they are also suitable for people requiring a 6E width fitting.
Raja is a casual suede sandal with cute crossover design in sumptuously soft dark navy or tan suede with and eye-catching pull-back D-ring fastening for a secure fit. Raja is also arthritis and bunion-friendly, as well as being great for feet that swell. Classic. Stylish. Comfy.
New vegan-friendly footbed sandal Suki features triple adjustable cut-to-fit straps* for ultimate adjustment. In two striking colour schemes, which will you choose? Also arthritis-friendly and good for feet that swell, Suki is made with no animal products.
Other footbed styles include Stacey and vegan-friendly Regan.
The best wide-fitting wedge Sandals
Our Wedge Sandals are just the ticket for perfect style and comfort. Our flexible wedge heels are Super Stable due to a straight sole profile, Super Flexible so they’re very comfortable to wear and Super Lightweight; constructed in strong but light materials so they don’t weight your feet down. They’re also Shock Absorbent with an ‘air-bubble’ sole to make it feel as though you’re walking on air.
The clever design and deep sole neatly hide the width and depth of the styles so, although the 1.75” heel offer the style and height, it only feels like a 1” heel, as the stable platform is half of the height ... Clever!
We couldn’t write a piece about the best wide-fitting sandals without mentioning new for 2023 Tuft! Be supremely-stylish without torturing your feet! This fashion-conscious design doesn’t look like they’re wide & deep but they are!

It also features four adjustable straps for the ultimate in adjustability to get the perfect fit for your feet. All four straps can be cut to the required length too*.
The best wide-fitting fashion Sandals
Super stylish wide-fitting sandal Kay has proven super popular already this season. Designed as a fashion sandal that’s perfect for summer evenings abroad or at home, it’s also designed with superb features for wide and extra wide feet.
Firstly, it opens up for easy access with toe to ankle laces and can be easily adjusted if your feet swell during the day and the elastic gusset on the ankle allows ease of fit. The punched design allows air to flow around your foot, keeping it cool on warm days and the padded footbed offers so much comfort!
