Measuring Width

Width is an incredibly complex topic for properly sizing a shoe. This is because most people don't know that there is no standard width system used by shoe manufacturers to determine the measurements of a narrow, medium, wide, or extra wide shoe. Shoe designers use their best judgment when deciding how wide to make a wide shoe and don't consult with one another before labeling the widths of their shoes.

  • A more medical brand tends to run wider than a fashion shoe brand. A diabetic shoe that comes in a wide width is more likely to provide a roomy fit.

  • The difference in measurement between an E and and EE is 1/8 of an inch.
