Comfortable, well-fitting shoes follow the natural shape of your feet. Wider feet can do well with square and round toe boxes. Narrow feet can do well with pointy and almond-shaped toe boxes. Look for narrow or wide sizes to achieve optimal fit. 

Shoes Follow Your Feet

High arches may prefer a shaped footbed and the lift of a low heel for foot support and less arch pain. Flatter feet with low arches often prefer a less shaped footbed and flat heels with sturdy soles. Narrow heels like slip-ons with straps that don’t slide off.

Shoes can be altered to fit comfortably. Too wide? Add insoles. Too narrow? Have them stretched. Too hard? Add socks. Go up a size when adding custom-made orthotics. Add moleskin where they rub. Adjust the tension of laces.
