Do I need wide shoes?
Whether or not you need wide shoes depends on the shape and size of your feet. Some people have feet that are wider than average, so a regular width shoe may be too tight and uncomfortable. If you find that your shoes are pinching your toes, or if you have to constantly adjust your shoes throughout the day, it may be a sign that you need a wider shoe.
Ryka recommends checking out our size guide, and trying on different width shoes to ensure you are making the right purchase.
What shoes fit wide feet?
If you're someone with wide feet, it's important to look for shoes that are specifically designed for a wider foot. Typically, these shoes are built with extra room in the toe box, which allows more space for your toes to spread out and prevents discomfort.
Additionally, you can always check out shoes with adjustable straps, laces, or Velcro closures, which can give you a more customizable fit.
Are wide shoes better for your feet?
Wide shoes can be better for some people's feet. However, not everyone needs wide shoes. The best way to determine if wide shoes are best for you is to evaluate how comfortable your current shoes are; do they squeeze your toes together? Do you have any pain or discomfort? If so, then maybe wide shoes would be better for you!
