If you’re a cute little chubby-footed babe, you know the struggle of shopping for adorable shoes that can comfortably cradle your feet. I always have a solid rotation about 5 shoes in my closet, and lots more that I don’t wear because they just don’t fit well enough. Recently, I’ve really been making an effort to buy comfortable, durable, and well fitting shoes, that I am also totally obsessed with. It hasn’t been easy, but it’s been pretty fun! If you’re in the same boat as me, and want to start placing a little more priority on your fine little feet, this list is a great place to start. Here are 10 places to shop for wide width shoes:


This is my go-to store every year when I start shopping for knee high boots! I love them because they offer lots of options in many differing price points, so there’s always something that works for me. They also have a great size chart, and go up to a size 13!



I think most of us know that this plus size clothing giant carries great clothes, but how often do you check out their shoes? Because Asos has a HUGE amount of wide width shoes, with sizes going up to 11!


Lane Bryant

Lane Bryant has tons of options for shoes ranging from casual to formal to fun at the pool. These wide width shoes range in size from 7-12 and are very affordably priced and often paired with a sale. They offer boots year round, sandals, flats, and heels so that you can find a shoe for any occasion. Lane Bryant is a huge name in plus size with an inspiring story that has always remained body positive.



Torrid has been increasing their stock of fashionable shoes for a couple years now, and I’m finally sold on a lot of their styles. I also just really love Torrid’s commitment to the belief that my fat ass can walk in 4 1/2 inch heels and appreciate their faith in my balance. It’s the little things, ya know? Sizes go up to 13.



Comfortview is a brand of shoes that specializes in wide widths. While they don’t have their own store front, they’re sold on several plus size sites. They do have a store on Amazon, that’s easy to access and gives you all the latest styles. Sizes go up to 13.

Ashley Stewart

Ashley Stewart came out with some super cute sandals this year, and I’m pumped (haha shoe jokes!) to see what comes out this fall. They have lots of awesome strappy sandals and their shoes are eye catching without being overwhelming. Into it. Make sure you check their sale section, because their sale shoes don’t show up on the “view all” page! Up to size 12.



Target can be such a great resource for fashionable and affordable plus size wear. They have so many options for plus size work wear. concerts, pool, chillin at home, or really whatever activity you get yourself into. Target has a large variety of cute and fashionable wide width shoes ranging from flats/casual to heels and club wear. Even their incredible Universal Thread line is making wide width women’s shoes!

Yours Clothing

All of their shoes are a EEE fit (which basically means they’re as wide as they come), so you don’t have to worry about sizing or whether or trying to figure out if you’re a “curvy wide” or “super wide”, which I totally appreciate. And look at these adorable rain boots. To die for. Sizes up to 13.


Woman Within

This site has a lot of great options for casual, comfortable, and athletic shoes. The prices are affordable and everyone loves a multifunctional shoe: athletic and cute. These would be perfect with some leggings and a cute athletic crop top. #athleisure.

Forever 21

Forever 21 always has something hip and trendy going on and they aren’t stopping when it comes to shoes. Their wide width section is small but mighty with fashion-forward pieces like these lemon yellow sandals and their extensive amount of plus size clothes would make an awesome duo.



No list of shoes is complete without Zappos. The site is a bit hard to navigate when looking for wide width shoes, but that’s just because they carry every damn shoe under the sun. Sizes go up to 13.


So, you think you’re ready to give those super cute wide feet the lovin’ they deserve? Do you have any other favorite places to shop for shoes? Let me know in the comments!

    I would add Payless. Their quality lasts so much longer for me than Torrid or LB, plus cheaper and they have a lot of cute designs. Like at least 90% of my shoes are from there, I am a 12w.

    • fatgirlflow July 27, 2015 at 2:29 am

      I really like payless too! They’re definitely great for wide width shoes. I wonder if they have payless outside of the US… hmmmm…

      • Moira Mckinnon July 22, 2019 at 3:14 pm

        I believe Payless closed all of their stores. In 2017, they closed 400. In a recent article on CNN, the rest of the stores were supposed to be closed by this past May. :0(

        • fatgirlflow July 22, 2019 at 10:00 pm

          Yeah they did 🙁 such a bummer cause they were such a great resource!

  • Aggie July 27, 2015 at 2:57 pm

    Which of these sites carries small sizes?? I’m a size 5 wide and I have sooooooo much trouble finding shoes :'(

    • fatgirlflow July 27, 2015 at 6:24 pm

      I would definitely try zappos!!! And comfortview!

  • Sarah April 16, 2016 at 10:36 pm

    I randomly found you on youtube and I have been obsessed with your videos and I thought I’d check out your website. I stumble upon this post and it’s like heaven shined a light down on me! GIRL! I seriously NEVER find shoes. I am stuck with rainbow flip flops and tennis shoes that aren’t even cute. I am SO glad I found you–just placed an order on yours clothing for some cute basic sandals and I’m so excited to wear them with my super new cute clothing I’ve purchased inspired by you! THANKS GIRL <3

    • fatgirlflow April 17, 2016 at 9:36 am

      AHHHH I’m so glad you’ve found stuff that works for you!!!!! <3 xoxo

    I recently discovered this amazing shoe line that started out in Australia that not only carries wide width shoes, but also allows you to custom design your own shoes. The prices are a little steep, but I would suggest investing in these shoes for a special event or just save up for a nice pair. Cute true wide width shoes are sooo hard to find! You can also find the line at Nordstrom. If you are from the Pacific Northwest like me, you can visit them at Nordstrom Bellevue Square and book an appointment with a personal shoe stylist and even host a shoe party. https://www.shoesofprey.com/

    Also, another suggestion for Aggie who was looking for smaller sizes in a wide width is Cinderella of Boston. I heard of them while watching Little Women LA, go figure! They are always wearing cute shoes!

    Corissa, thank you for all the work you have done to compile all these lists, your advice, and your positive outlook that has helped so many and will continue to inspire us all! Much love xo

    Hello again!
    My last comment ran a little long, but I cannot believe I forgot to mention Allegria shoes. I practically live in them. I can personally attest to their comfort. They come in many adorable styles and because they have a wide toe box and a wide width insert they are perfect for people that have problems with their feet. I have a flat foot problem and bunions but after lots of research I found these and I swear by them. I own the Debra Sugar Skulls and the Paloma (style escapes me but they look like a disco ball). Check them out!

    • DW August 20, 2016 at 1:41 pm

      Thanks for mentioning Alegria, Rachel!! I recently discovered them and bought a pair of Paloma mary janes on eBay. I tend to have a lot of foot problems because I wear 11WW and I have pain in my heels. I’ve been trying to find plus size bloggers who talk about Alegria shoes because I want to know more about other peoples experiences with them. Since they are so expensive, I can’t buy a bunch of the different styles to try out, and they are hard to find in stores, especially in the 42 wide/11 wide. I feel like they could be a great plus size accessory, and I wish more people would write and make videos about them.

    • Melanie September 26, 2016 at 10:13 am

      Hi Rachel, can you explain the wide width insert in the Alegria shoes-clogs.? I wear a 7 wide. Should I order my size but will the insert fir correctly? Thanks so much.

    • Shannon Davis February 23, 2020 at 8:23 pm

      I have difficult feet…high instep, wide width and flat feet. Right?! I love Allegra and just recently discovered HOKA sneakers, trail shoes and boots. They are great for wide and hard to fit feet!

  • Rachel October 15, 2016 at 11:09 am

    Sorry for the late response, I just saw your message. Maybe you’ve found your answer, if not here is a link with more description of the Alegria wide width insert, http://www.alegriashoeshop.com/FREE-Wide-Option-p/alg-wide.htm
    In my personal experience I have found the wide insert to be helpful in overall fit. I have 2 styles of Alegria, the Paloma and the Debra styles and both have wide inserts and seem to fit just fine.
    On another note, I like to add a recommendation for a good wide width running shoe. I recently purchased a pair of Nike Lunar Glide 6. I read some reviews and lots of people rave about this particular style of the Nike Lunar Glide. One reviewer recommended purchasing them in the men’s size, since they seem to be a wider fit. Luckily, I found that that make the Nike Lunar Glide 6 in a more feminine pattern, the Photosynthesis. I was able to find some on Eastbay for a really good price. I would highly recommend. http://m.eastbay.com/?uri=product&sku=76259401&model=218843&cm=GLOBAL%20SEARCH:%20KEYWORD%20SEARCH

    Hi. I am diabetic so it is very important that I take care of my feet. I first saw the Alegria shoes being worn by a nurse and she had been wearing them for years. I found them at a uniform store. I now have two pairs and am ordering 3 more! They are the best shoes and most comfortable I have ever had.

    • fatgirlflow February 8, 2019 at 6:36 pm

      I’ll make sure I check them out!!!

  • Heather July 21, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    My go-to for cute wide and extra wide shoes is SimplyBe.
    They were the first place that I ever found comfortable and cute extra wide boots and heels. They also offer several different calf sizes for their boots!

    • Delayne July 22, 2019 at 3:38 pm

      I highly, highly recommend Clarks brand shoes – they carry wide width in a large range of sizes. You can find them through QVC and also through Zappos, I believe, and even Amazon and eBay. Everything from dress shoes to sandals. They’re COMFORTABLE. They’re well-made and of good quality, and they last forever.

  • Jenny R July 22, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    I know Zappos has shoes in wide widths for men but does anyone have more sources? I have two teenagers who like cool styles that fit.

    • fatgirlflow July 22, 2019 at 9:59 pm

      are you looking for sneakers for boys?

  • Ellie August 12, 2019 at 10:42 am

    Try just fab. They have cute affordable wide width shoes. They are a subscription service, but you can always skip the month. They also have wide calf boots!

    • fatgirlflow August 12, 2019 at 10:57 pm

      i used to have a subscription but gave it up – maybe I should try it again?

  • Rasheme March 23, 2020 at 10:53 pm

    I use LongTallSally,cause I wear a size 15,so none of those you listed I can fit.

    • fatgirlflow April 3, 2020 at 11:03 am

      Oh I like long tall sally as well! I should add them!
