If you have wide feet, you know just how frustrating it can be to find a pair of shoes that don't squeeze, constrict or dig in. That especially holds true for flats — even if they're technically the right size, you end up feeling like one of Cinderella's stepsisters as you try to wedge your foot inside.
Well, that's all once upon a time. A mass of Amazon shoppers has singled out a particular pair of flats that are perfect for wide feet while being ridiculously affordable. In fact, these are so inexpensive, that you can't afford not to buy every color. Meet the Amazon Essentials Women's Belice Ballet Flats. These shoes — an Amazon bestseller in their category — are wide, comfy and available in 34 colors. The best part? They're just $22!
The magic lies in the shape and the material. The rounded toe is way easier on the tootsies than a pointy profile. The sole is super bendy, and the upper is made of a buttery soft faux leather with a faux suede lining. Gently elasticated trim helps the shoe mold to your foot's unique shape.
Over 36,000 shoppers have given these shoes a perfect five-star review, including many with wide feet.
"I have the worst feet ever," shared one shopper. "They're wide, and flats always seem to pinch the end of my foot and give my heel blisters. These are so so soft and comfy."
Another loves them so much, she wore them to her son's wedding: "I have wide feet AND bunions," she reported. "I am singing a Hallelujah! They are comfy from the very first minute!!! I usually wear an 8.5 and ordered the 8.5 wide. PERFECT fit!"
Have a hard-to-shop-for shoe size? These are available from a size 5 to a size 15 (and yes, they come in half sizes, too) in wide and regular widths.
"I have very odd feet (puffy, gout), and it is hard to shop for certain shoes," lamented one shopper. "I gave these a chance in a 13 wide, and am glad I sized up. These fit wonderfully and do not irritate my high in-step. I love how quickly they came and how nice they look and feel."
