Shoe Edit for Wide Feet – Fall and Winter

Wide feet club, what up!

This is essentially a list of clogs. #cloglife

I thought my feet were hard to fit, and then I had kids. Did you know you get extra feet after pregnancy? Yup. Your body releases a hormone that loosens your joints, preparing your pelvis for the exit of that baby passenger. But joints have a terrible memory, they don’t return to Before Children (BC) proportions. And wouldn’t you know it, feet have A LOT of joints. Downside, none of your shoes fit. Upside: you get all new shoes!

I’m a size 10/10.5 Wide. Always Wide, no sneaking into a non Wide for me. Before Children, I was 9.5/10 sometimes wide.

Very few brands are like: “Amazing! You have canoe paddles for feet? We have so many choices for you!”

They are more like: “Um, we have our orthopedic collection that everyone hates. Would that work?”

NOPE. 

In rebuilding my shoe closet I’ve tried on approx. 197,439 pairs of shoes and the winners are below.

Oh, and I don’t suffer uncomfortable shoes. All these shoes are game for all day walking and standing. I’m also a big believer in clogs as everyday wear.  

Here is my fall/winter shoe edit for wide feets!

Danskos black, $170, these are my go-tos, worth every penny.

Dansko – grey, $170 – of course I bought grey as well. 

Dansko – clog bootie, $150,for clog lovers who want to be a little extra

Naturalizer – grey flannel, $60 I found these after those pink Vince slip ons broke my heart (too narrow!) They are just as cute, and the flannel is a nice texture.

ECCO – sliver sneakers, $80 (I just learned there is a retiree exercise program at the Y called “Sliver Sneakers” so I feel extra cool wearing these!), sliver is a great neutral and these sneaks go with EVERYTHING.
