    Default Dress Shoes for Wide Feet

    I have VERY wide feet (4E) and now I am in a position that I need nice dress shoes to teach in. What are some good, reasonably priced (< around $100), brands that might carry wider shoes.

    Have you tried Zappos.com or Nordstroms.com?

    I would try Talbots, either the catalog, online, or in the store. However, I think online or the catalog would give you the most options. They have great sales a couple times a year. Their Spring sale should be starting soon.

    Aerosoles has "wide" size but I don't know exactly how wide it is. I think their "medium" or regular runs wider than many brands to begin with.

    I love Softspots shoes. I usually can't find anything off the rack that fits and it's not unusual for me to wind up buying size 12 wide shoes. In the Softspots I wear 11 W and the shoes have plenty of room for me. Very comfortable. They also have WW in lots of styles.

    Zappos and the other on-line stores usually carry them. They're also carried in quite a few retail stores.

    I have good luck with both Maryland Square and Footsmart.

    www.footsmart.com

    www.marylandsquare.com

    As far as specific brands, it depends on the shape of your feet. For example, Propet makes really wide shoes, but I can't wear them because they aren't shaped for my duck feet. But, if your width is more in the middle of your foot, not your toes, they fit great.

    There are no dress shoes out there that really fit wide feet. This I have determined after years of squashing my feet and is why I go to the men's running shoe section of Kohl's and am thankful I am allowed to wear them at work.

    I have been wearing men's New Balance sneakers for years, but sometimes I need to dress up. I did just order a pair of these:

    from Maryland Square and I will see how that works out and post about it next OT day. I actually have a nice pair of dressy sandals with some heel that fit well, but they aren't always appropriate, especially in the winter .

    Another vote for aerosoles. I'm not crazy wide, but wide enough with a lot of foot issues, and either a size 10 or 11 depending on the style of shoe. I think they are great and comfy!

    I secretly want these http://www1.macys.com/shop/product/i...xx.esn_results I know I won't fall off them, they're sinfully cute and I'll wind up being just like one of Cinderella's sisters, lopping off a toe and half my foot to fit. Do we have a boo hoo emoticon now? Cause I need it.

    Sierra Trading Post, www.sierratradingpost.com. Good quality shoes, and it will let you search by size and width. I have never had a problem returning anything if it does not fit.

    Hmm. These aren't too bad http://www.aerosoles.com/eng/product/envy/envy

    Is that squared off toe the current thing? How much of my foot will I need to lop off to fit in this one?

    I fiddled with the size button and it finally started to work and I got that 5.5 thing as well. Thats, that's . . . just STUPID.
