What are the most professional, comfortable heels for wide feet? Reader N wonders:
I always have trouble finding a pair of comfortable yet fashionable shoes for two reasons – 1) I have wide feet and can only buy wide shoes of which there is a limited selection, and 2) I also have flat feet/collapsing arcs. Could you suggest some brands that have nice shoes in wide sizes (especially those available in Canada?) that are also comfortable and affordable? And maybe other tips about shoe inserts? Thanks!
We have talked about how to find shoes for your weird feet, as well as the best general shoe brands (and tips) for buying comfortable heels, but we haven’t talked about pro shoes for wide feet in a few years now. (I would recommend treating flat feet/wide feet as two separate problems, but your podiatrist can advise you best there — we’ve talked before about women’s shoe inserts to make the heels more comfortable.)
(These gold heels really look like the ones in the picture above!)
