16 Sandals People With Wide Feet Actually Swear By



1. Elastic sandals that'll gently hug your feet but not too tightly for us wide-footed people. It's a basic sandal made snazzy with its crisscross design.

Promising review: "I haven't worn these for a long period of time yet, but I am very picky about shoes, sandals in particular. I have fairly wide feet, and usually wear a 10 in close-toed shoes. These 9.5s fit perfectly. Most of the 'strappage' is soft, durable elastic, and there is a piece of soft leather behind the heel so that back strap stays in place. The straps across the top is nice and flexible. They are simple enough to casually dress up or down. I'm in love! Very happy with this purchase and excited to wear them." —Autumn

Get them from Amazon for $9.79+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 14 colors).

2. Sandal slides for a slip-on-and-go type of sandal for all of your seasonal festivities.

Promising review: "I love that these are adjustable, first and foremost. I was concerned about my feet especially being swollen due to pregnancy right now. But they are great for wide feet and super comfortable." —Love Yourz

Get them from Amazon $21.24+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 17 colors)

3. Clarks flip-flops, a classic flip that's everything BUT a flop. See what I did there? Reviewers say they fit like a glove and are super comfortable whether you're running everyday errands or headed for a night out.

Promising review: "I absolutely love ❤️ these flip flops!! I’m a nurse and when I’m not at work I’m usually wearing flip flops if weather permits. They have very good support for walking or standing for long periods of time. I read in the reviews that some people found them to be narrow; I did not find them to be narrow. My feet are wide and they fit great. I usually wear an 8.5, and the 8 fits like a glove. I will be purchasing another pair for myself and a pair for my mom. I know she’ll love them!!" —Donna

Get them from Amazon for $28.32+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 37 colors).

4. A pair of washable and waterproof Birkenstock Arizona slip-ons because they're perfect for beach days. As things heat up, I'm sure you'll find yourself happier and happier to have a pair of these hanging around your closet.

Promising review: "I wear these shoes EVERYWHERE! I wear them to the beach, in the water, to the store, and my favorite place to wear them is the amusement park! I spend hours on my feet at amusement parks with my kids and no matter what shoes I wore, I was always in tears by the end of the day from my feet hurting so bad. I wore these to Sea World and I could've walked around hours more. For the first time ever, my feet did not hurt! I'm buying more colors. I typically wear a 9.5 and bought the 9-9.5 and the shoes fit perfectly. I have wide feet as well and the width was great even though it's labeled as narrow width. I can't think of any cons to purchasing these slides. You will not regret this purchase!" —Crystal

Get them from Amazon for $29.34+ (available in sizes 5.5–15.5 and 25 colors).

5. Or a pair of classic Arizona Birkenstocks that reviewers say even relieved some of the pain they experience from plantar fasciitis.

Promising review: "This is perfect for my pregnant feet and city-living future mom! I baseline have wide feet with bunions so this actually is perfect for me. I’m still in the breaking-in process but I have faith as it molds to my feet they will get more comfortable over time. Someone said these were knockoffs but I did quite a bit of research and compared the two and couldn’t find any fault. So far they are genuine to me! Love the neutral color and the straps don’t rub on my feet, which is great. Can’t wait to break these puppies in and walk around post-COVID with the little babes!" —Sam Oh

Get them from Amazon for $89.95+ (available in sizes 3–17 and 70+ colors).

Promising review: "I love these! I bought them in yellow/gold and black for my European vacation. I have wide feet and I have problems finding shoes that are comfortable.

Promising review: "Love these! They’ve been on a few trips already and they are extremely durable. Easy to clean, super adjustable, and comfortable. I have wide feet and that was my struggle to find a sandal. Would definitely recommend. I got the black and they are true to size." —New To This

Promising review: "I was pretty worried about these because I have wide feet, a high arch, and not the thinnest ankles. I took a chance and ordered my usual size (US 10) and was very pleasantly surprised. Never experienced any pinching or rubbing whatsoever, even the first time I wore them. However, I did pull on the ankle straps a bit to stretch them out before I put them on. I wear them everywhere now and really, really like them. They're perfect for summer and the rose gold adds some fun to any outfit." —Pea

Get them from Amazon for $24.95+ (available in sizes 6–10 and 10 colors).

10. Platform gladiator Dr. Martens with an air-cushioned sole so you can carry around that chunky look you get from your fave boots without having sweaty toes.

Promising review: "It runs a half size big but I think all Dr. Martens do for the most part. Love this shoe. I get so many compliments. I have wide feet and I work on my feet all day and I can wear these for a full day." —Stefanie F.

Get them from Amazon or Dr. Martens for $140 (available in sizes 5–11).

Promising review: "These sandals are so comfortable and stylish. I received compliments the first day I wore them. I have wide feet and usually wear an 8 but I ordered up a half size to accommodate it. The fit is true to size with room for wide feet, so an 8 would have been fine. I want the other colors too! You’ll love them." —Kimberly Arnold

Get them from Amazon for $23.19+ (available in sizes 6–11 and 14 colors)

12. An incredibly cozy flip-flop made with the same material found in yoga mats that'll keep your feet zen all day long.

Promising review: "I love these sandals they are very comfortable even for my wide Frodo feet. I normally wear an 8.5, and I went up to a 9 which I normally have to do as most shoes are not really wide enough for my clod hoppers. They are a smidge long since I have short wide feet. But again I am very used to this and it does not bother me that my toes are a good half inch from the top of the shoe bed. The straps are all soft and elasticy which isn't a word but lets roll on. The straps have a good give but not so much that you feel like you're gonna flop out. But they are tight enough, even for my fat feet, without cutting off the circulation. Over all, they are very comfortable and I will most likely buy another pair as soon as possible. You can never have enough sandals even though I clearly do. Don't even look in my closet. I'm a sandal hoarder." —Gina Central

Get them from Amazon for $22.87+ (available in sizes 5–11 and 14 colors/prints)

13. A funky sandal wedge to give your OOTD a statement piece that'll stop traffic. Plus, the colorful beadwork gives you an amazing palette to inspire your daily fashion.

Promising review: "I absolutely love these! I sat on buying them for two months due to the reviews. I wasn’t sure if they were going to be uncomfortable or even wide enough for my feet. I am a flat-footed country girl, forever barefoot, and rarely wearing pumps. BUT let me tell you, these are the most comfortable wedges I have ever had and will be buying them in all colors. I am a heavier girl and can walk for hours in them without any discomfort. I suggest ordering a size up, I ordered an 8 because of the reviews (normally a size 7) and my toes fit perfectly under the strap and my feet don’t slide in them. They are exactly as pictured but way better in person. The beads are pretty sturdy and I have had no problem with them! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Don’t hesitate, get them!" —Deja P.

Get them from Amazon for $29.50+ (available in sizes 5–10 and 12 colors).

14. Flatform espadrilles just begging to give you a little added elevation. They come in so many different colors and styles that many reviewers get multiple pairs.

Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE SANDALS! I am so glad I got them. I hesitated and decided to get them after reading a lot of reviews. I have wide feet and I have a hard time finding cute sandals that actually fit me. These are PERFECT for people with wider feet and I get so many compliments. I got them in black too and I'm pretty sure imma give in to other colors 👀😬🤷🏻‍♀️ Good quality for the price too. I did size down half a size and they fit perfect 👌🏼" —Nely

Get them from Amazon for $15.95+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in 68 colors and prints).

15. A pair of tie-up sandals, an otherwise basic sandal with a dainty tie at the ankle that gives a peekaboo of fancy.

Promising review: "I have wide feet and a new tattoo and was struggling to find sandals I could wear to work while it healed. Thought I'd take a chance and am extremely happy with this purchase! They're comfy and cute and don't break the bank. My only complaint is I want more color options. PRETTY PLEASE MORE COLORS!!" —TealToeNailz

Get them from Amazon for $15+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in six colors).

16. Some slide sandals because you want a shoe that not only feels good on the foot but looks good on the foot, too.

Promising review: "I love these sandals! I have been looking for sandals like these and can’t find them anywhere that fit! I have wide feet and sandals like this tend to be too tight and uncomfortable. But these fit amazing for wide feet! The inside of the band has a little bit of cushion, which is nice! I would definitely recommend these if you have the same issue as me! I do typically wear an 8 and I ordered a 9 just in case and they fit me perfect, so keep that in mind that you might need to order a size up!" —Allyssa Olivas

Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in sizes 5–11 and in eight colors).
