What’s the best answer to all of our customers’ questions?
CALL US! (651) 797-6000.
Since all feet are unique, and all footwear fits differently, use our experience from fitting thousands of men with XL and or Wide feet over more than a decade. Our experienced fit experts routinely fit men better from thousands of miles away over a brief phone call, than reps in their local shoe store can do in person. As one of our seasoned fit experts righteously proclaims, “It’s not that I’m that good, it’s that everyone else in the industry is that bad”.

How do I measure the width of my feet?
Not with a tape measure. A Brannock device is best. What is a Brannock device? Click here to see it at the top of the page at this link.
Unfortunately, there is no universal measurement for width. Even within the same brand, a "4E Wide" for example, could vary in how wide actually feels significantly from one style to another. Variations in how wide a 4E is can vary even more from one brand to another. Width is just one of many factors that our experienced fit experts use to determine the best fit for our customers and when fitting a foot without considering all the factors.
- AAA Narrow (Narrowest width on the market)
- AA Narrow
- A Narrow
- B Narrow
- C Narrow
- D Medium (standard or regular width)
- E Wide
- EE Wide
- EEE Wide
- 4E wide
- 5E Wide
- 6E Wide (widest reliable width on the market) Best option for more than 90% of our customers
Does XLfeet have a sizing chart?
We intentionally do not offer a sizing chart. Since all footwear fits differently, sizing charts have proven to be very misleading and cause many more returns, hassle, and costs for our customers.
Fitting feet is like prescribing medication. If patients could simply look at a symptom chart and prescribe medication to themselves based on that chart alone, this would be dangerous as different drugs interact with different people, their allergies, other conditions, and other medications differently. Even different versions of the same drug could have vastly different effects on the same person.
Fitting a foot (all of which have their own unique factors), while hardly dangerous to one’s health, is just like prescribing medication to yourself based on a chart of symptoms and not consulting a doctor. The riskiest part of fitting one’s feet based on a size chart is the wasted time, hassle, and worse, the shipping costs that result from receiving footwear that doesn’t fit.
For the best fit, please call us at (651) 797-6000.
Does XLfeet have a catalog?
Unfortunately, due to how many products are always being newly released and discontinued, if we did print a catalog, it’d be obsolete the day it was printed. Our website has the most up to date offering of our products, and if you’d like to know more, please call us at (651) 797-6000.

What’s the widest safety-toe (composite, steel, alloy, nanofiber) boot/shoe you offer?
Without question the widest safety-toe boots/shoes we offer are made by Avenger and Hoss Boots. Ironically, both were designed by Work Footwear Industry legend Don Colbert. He designed our best-selling Avenger Work boots and later left Avenger to start his own company, Hoss Boot Co. No other boot or shoe comes anywhere close fitting as wide as the Avenger or Hoss Boots in the 6E width, PERIOD! If you’re at all on the fence about 4E or 6E wide, CHOOSE THE 6E!!! If you are curious as to why, please call us at (651) 797-6000. We’d love to save you the inconvenience of a return.
What’s the difference between a 4E and a 5E (or E to EE, or 3E to 4E, or 5E to 6E)?
Just slightly more width. If you are at all uncertain we can blindly tell you based on the thousands of returns and exchanges we’ve processed over more than a decade of serving men with XL and Wide Feet, more than 90% of the time wider is better. If your even slightly doubtful, call us at (651) 797-6000.
