Mainstream fashion brands are focusing more often on width. This has made more trendy options easier to find in the current styles. This is made all the better by the current fashion in footwear that's putting practical designs into the mainstream.
The trend for today's high heels is in a thicker sole that's not quite as high as platforms. It has slightly thicker heels and more rounded toes. This fashion has led to a more balanced aesthetic for wider feet and sometimes lets those with foot girth shop at stores that don't specialize.
Footwear should be selected with the correct width. Many purchase shoes that are far too narrow, letting them stretch to fit the feet. This leads to a loss of elegance and ends in a look that's clearly stretched. It's much more elegant to wear a well fitting shoe because it retains its look. There is little point in trying to hide width in narrow footwear as it's ineffective.
A pointed toe isn't always the best choice for feet with more width. The toe needs only a slight roundness to balance itself out. Stilettos with extremely pointed toes and narrow heels set the aesthetics off balance and can look less attractive.
Flat footwear introduces a problem for wide feet because many of the options open to others are too masculine when they have extra girth. There are medically designed brands that don't focus on the youth of some of their clients and tend to create footwear that's old fashioned and lacking in femininity. There are, however, some that do create youthful styles.
Lace ups and hush puppy-like flats are best reserved for a particular kind of outfit. Others need flats that are far more feminine and the styles that achieve this best are Mary Janes with buckles and ballet pumps. The deep front section places width into proportion for a more feminine appeal.
Wider styles are particularly easy to find in boots these days. The square and round toes in trendy modern boots balance width well. Even when boots are practical, they have an edgy trendiness.
Boots that are wider have become increasingly popular and easy to find. UGG boots and other sports conscious styles are often sold by surfing and skiing brands. They usually have natural width without having to aim towards it. Sports wear and ski stores are well worth looking at by those with well girthed feet.
The summer months are often the easiest for finding wider footwear. The lack of constraint that sandals provide makes them easier to fit. When trying to find wide shoes for women in the hotter months, thongs can be the fastest solution. Width is almost unlimited by any straps or buckles.
