Running Shoes for Wide Feet 2014
Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14
One of the most popular moderate stability shoes on the market, the Adrenaline GTS comes in widths. Available in D, 2E and 4E, it has become a go-to option for runners who have wider feet and need medium support. What’s more, a no-stitch upper and new lacing design in the latest model allow this shoe the flexibility to fit a variety of foot shapes comfortably.
Known for their foot-shaped toe box, Altra is a great option for runners with wider feet. While the Olympus only comes in regular widths, its uniquely wide toe box will accommodate many runners looking for a bit more wiggle room up front. A highly cushioned option for trail runners, their zero drop platform allows your feet to strike naturally no matter what the terrain.
New Balance 860v4
A stability model that comes in the wide “D” width for women and “2E” and “4E” for men, the 860v4 utilizes a higher-density EVA foam in the arch to help control each strike and prevent over-pronation. Weighing in at 10.9 ounces, this is a great option for a runner who needs some stability in a lighter weight package.
Asics GEL-Cumulus 15
Appropriate for under-pronators to mild over-pronators, the GEL-Cumulus offers a well-cushioned ride thanks to a combination of foam and gel technology. With a meshy upper in the forefoot, this shoe allows for some give in the toe box to accommodate slightly wider feet. Also, Asics’ Personal Heel Fit employs two layers of memory foam in the collar to mold to your feet and provide a personalized fit.
Saucony Guide 7
Available in widths for both men and women, the Saucony Guide offers support, flexibility, and comfort all in one package. A moderate stability shoe, the latest model also provides a soft, well-cushioned ride and heel-to-toe transition thanks to Saucony’s power grid technology in the heel. Additonally, the redesigned Guide utilizes a FlexFilm upper that is both seamless and lightweight, ensuring comfort for a variety of widths.
While the Topo ST isn’t supremely wide throughout the shoe, it’s a great option for someone with a wider forefoot. Comprised of an anatomical shape, the last accommodates a greater amount of width in the toe box than most traditional running shoes, allowing your toes to splay slightly. Not only does this contribute to greater comfort, it also promotes a more natural strike and toe-off.
A heavily cushioned shoe perfect for trail buffs, the Vasque Ultra SST is a welcome alternative to many traditional running shoes. Utilizing Vasque’s new ShapeShifter technology, the upper is sewn directly into the injection-molded EVA midsole. This design makes for a sock-like fit for a variety of foot shapes. A straighter-than-normal last will also appeal to runners with wider feet.
