  8. 4E Width Shoes for the Win

    Shoes For Big Feet Shoes For Big Feet

    Here at XL feet, we’re big about stressing the importance of quality footwear. How does one define quality footwear? Well, there isn’t one way. Lots of other people out there will tell you to look for any of the following things.

    They’ll tell you to look for premium materials. In dress shoes, they’ll tell you to look for quality leather and suede uppers and solid leather soles with brass tacks. In sneakers and gym shoes they’ll tell you to look for orthotics and high-tech insoles that will keep you comfortable as you go through all the motions.

    In boots for hiking, hunting, and work they’ll tell you to look for some of these same things as well as other features to keep you safe and sound. They might tell you to look for a shank to reduce fatigue and protect your foot. They might tell you to look for a safety toe of some sort to protect you against occupational hazards and abrasion.

    Some might tell you to look for full-grain uppers that are waterproof and insulated to protect you against the incursions of inclement weather. You might be admonished to find soles with excellent traction that are resistant to things like acid and oils.

    What you don’t hear a lot is that the fit of the boot or shoe is important. In truth, the wiser from among the bunch will tell you, from experience, that shoes that don’t fit properly aren’t much good at all if any. Boots for working or hiking, shoes for the gym, and even dress shoes for the office won’t do much good, even with any of these features already mentioned, but if they don’t fit you they will be your own form of hazard.

    One component of the size that doesn’t get a lot of air or press time is width. Naturally, you might understand how boots or shoes in t
