Flip Flops for Wide Feet

The right flip flops for wide feet can be a very comfortable and suitable option for those warm summers.

This article will look at flip flops that offer good comfort features and a wider fit option.

Wide Feet Causes and Concerns

As someone who has wide feet, you may be wondering what some of the causes and concerns are to these foot shapes;

Causes of Wide Feet
Most people are just born with wider feet than others. However, there are cases where age or gaining weight can also cause your feet to loosen a little and become a wider shape. Certain foot deformities and injuries may add to feet becoming wider with time. Footwear that fits improperly can actually cause damage and deformities, which may lead to wider feet.

Lastly, feet that tend to swell quite a bit will generally be wider.

Some Concerns Related to Wider Feet
Most concerns that develop with wide feet are because shoes usually do not fit properly, leading to issues such as bunions, calluses, Cross Over toes, and hammertoes.

Wide feet on their own may not actually cause problems, but your shoes and even flip-flops must fit properly.

Wide feet are caused by excess weight or fallen arches, and flat feet may be at more risk of other issues because there is no proper arch support. Your feet may also be wider and flatter if you have very low or fallen arches.

This is where heel pain, Overpronation, and other health concerns may come into play.

Choosing Flip Flops for Wide Feet

There are a few features that you need to consider in a good Flip Flop for comfort and support generally, but for a wider foot type, your main aim is to get a flip flop that is available in a wider width option;

  • Fit – Opt for flip flop sandals that either has a general wider fit or that are available in wide width options. Also, look for something with extra depth, and if possible, flip flops that may offer some adjustability on the uppers.
  • Uppers and Sole Materials – There are not many options in uppers for Flip Flop sandals, they will be either a polyester or textile fabric, mesh, genuine or synthetic leather, rubber, or a Pu material. For the outsole, your best option is a rubber or EVA rubber blend for cushioning. The tread of the outsole should be lug and patterned for optimal slip resistance.
  • Support and Comfort features – Generally, a wide design shoe may make your feet look even wider. Yet when you choose any footwear with good arch support and proper alignment, your fete will automatically look slimmer. The same goes for Flip Flops. Look for flip flops with a contoured or arch support footbed with cushioning insole and midsole for shock absorbency and support.
  • Options – Besides wider width opts, flip flops for sandals will also come in more size and color options which will vary according to the specific brand and model.
