Are you looking for stylish and comfortable boots in large sizes? Here's your guide to finding the best boots for big feet, with tips on what to consider and how to find the perfect fit.

The Challenge of Finding Boots in Large Sizes

We at Grand Shoes know how frustrating it can be to search for stylish boots when you have large feet. The selection is often limited, and it can feel like compromising on either style or fit. But don't worry - there's hope! With the right knowledge and a little patience, you can find boots that both look great and feel comfortable, regardless of size.

I remember how it was before I discovered Grand Shoes. I went from store to store, only to hear time and time again that they didn't have my size. When I did find something in my size, it was often outdated styles in boring colors. I felt limited and excluded. But it doesn't have to be that way! Today, there are more options than ever for those of us with big feet.

What to Consider When Buying Boots in Large Sizes

When you're looking for boots in large sizes, there are a few things you should keep in mind to find the perfect fit:

  • Make sure to choose boots with a wide last. Many boots are too narrow for large feet, even if the length is right.
  • Check that there's plenty of room in the toe box. Your toes should be able to move freely without being squished together.
  • Choose boots with good support for the arch and instep. This is especially important if you have flat feet or high arches.
  • Consider the material the boots are made of. Leather and other natural materials often mold to the foot over time.
  • Try on boots towards the end of the day, when your feet are at their largest. Make sure there's a little extra room.

Remember that all feet are unique, so what works for someone else might not work for you. Trust your own instincts and choose the boots that feel best on your particular feet.

Finding the Right Size and Fit

Finding the right size can be tricky even for those with average-sized feet, and for those of us with large feet, it can feel like an impossible task. But by carefully measuring your feet and knowing what to look for, the chances of finding the perfect fit increase significantly.

Start by measuring the length of your foot. Stand on a piece of paper with your heel against a wall and mark where your longest toe ends. Then measure the distance between the wall and the mark. Do this for both feet, as they often differ slightly in size. Use the measurements to find your shoe size in the size chart for the brand you're interested in.

But length is only half the equation. You also need to consider the width and shape of your foot. Some have narrow feet, others wide. Some have high insteps while others have low. All of this affects how a boot will fit.

If possible, try on boots in a physical store. Walk around in them in the store, feel if there's enough room in the toes and over the instep. Make sure the heel stays in place and doesn't slide up and down when you walk. A good rule of thumb is that there should be about a thumb's width of space between your toes and the end of the boot.

If you're shopping for boots online, carefully check the size guide and read reviews to see if the boots tend to run small or large. Many online retailers also offer free returns, so you can order multiple sizes and send back the ones that don't fit.

Materials and Features to Look For

In addition to size and fit, there are certain materials and features that can make a big difference in comfort when you have large feet. Here are some things to keep an eye out for:

  • High-quality leather that molds to the foot
  • Padded collars that reduce pressure on the instep
  • Removable insoles that can be replaced with custom inserts if needed
  • Sturdy soles with good traction that provide support and stability
  • Zippers or velcro straps that make it easier to take the boots on and off

Also consider what you'll be using the boots for. Will you be hiking in the woods, standing and walking a lot at work, or just wearing them for everyday use? Different activities place different demands on function and comfort. A boot that's perfect for a walk in the woods might not work as well for a day in the city.

Care Tips for Boots in Large Sizes

Once you've found your dream boots, you naturally want them to last as long as possible. With proper care, a pair of high-quality boots can last for many years, even with frequent use.

If the boots are made of leather, be sure to waterproof them regularly to protect against moisture and dirt. Brush off mud and grit after each use and let the boots dry at room temperature if they get wet. Stuff them with newspaper to draw out moisture.

Use shoe trees when the boots aren't being worn to help them retain their shape. And let them rest for at least a day between wears so they have a chance to dry out thoroughly. Alternating between two pairs of boots will make both pairs last longer.

If you notice the soles starting to wear down or the boots need to be sewn up somewhere, take them to a cobbler right away. The sooner damage is repaired, the longer the boots will last.

Where to Find Boots in Large Sizes

Now that you know what to look for, it's time to start shopping! But where do you actually find boots in large sizes? Unfortunately, many regular shoe stores have a fairly limited selection above size 45. But don't despair, there's hope!
