It’s great to see a lot more brands starting to do wide fit shoes, from River Island launching some of their best styles in wide fit, to Lovedrobe launching shoes for the first time on site in 2016 and ASOS slowly filtering in a lot of wide fit styles and half sizes across the board, things are looking up! Of course we can’t forget New Look and Evans, who have been holding it down for the wide fit crew for some time now. I haven’t had a chance to try out any of the new season offerings just yet, I’m sure it won’t be long though as some of these shoes are just beautiful.
Embroidery is not going away this season, and these Suedette Embroidered Loafers from New Look (£27.99) are just dreamy! I’ve been looking for a pair like this so to find them in wide fit is just the best. They come in pink and black and I’m fearing for my bank balance as I’m struggling to choose between them.
I’ve also been searching for some bow front sneakers ever since I saw the Jeffrey Campbell ones launch, but alas, I’ve not been able to find any in wide fit until now! These White Bow Front Slip On Trainers (£18.99) are perfect and very reasonably priced to boot. (Get it?!)
You may remember my love of pink cross front mules in my AW16 accessories post, so I was delighted to see these wide fit beauties in Evans. The snakeskin heel on them is to die for. The Cross Front Mules (£35) also come in Khaki and Black but they have the same colour heels, whereas I like the contrast on the pink ones.
I also love to bring out the tan shoes when spring starts to be in the air, these Punchout Block Heel Sandal (£40) are just perfect for that and will look great with a mid blue cropped jean.
ASOS is leading the newcomers with over 200 styles of wide fit on their site right now (some of these are New Look brand too however) their ASOS brand is not to be sniffed at though, with both basics and more fashionable offerings. These jacquard pairs are my favourites with the Hundred Bow Sandal at £32 and the Jacquard Loafers at £22.
My final ASOS pick are these rose gold beauties. I’m after a gold pair for later this year and these tick all of the boxes: block heel, not too high and shiny – I think I may order them and see! ASOS Starling Pointed Heels (£35).
With only 16 styles on site the range is slightly limited. I loved the western boots they had in wide fit but I was too slow to buy in my size and they are close to being sold out now. These Western Style Shoe Boots (£48) are like the spring/summer version of them though, with open toes, and western buckle details on the sling back and I’m loving them.
Sometimes you should really invest in a shoe that will last the seasons, and Lovedrobe seem to offer that. These Scalloped Edge Grey Faux Suede Court Shoes (£55) are perfect for that and still have that bit of an edge over the standard court thanks to the scalloped edging at the heel.
I’ve loved Faith for a long time now, whilst I was at Uni my friend worked there so she always had the most gorgeous shoes and I’ve been a fan since. They seemed to stop selling Size 9 shoes last year, which was a disappointment to me as it meant I could only wear their sandals. However, I’ve now seen they’ve introduced 16 wide fit styles on Debenhams and some on ASOS and Next, so I may squeeze into an 8! Mainly offering Faith’s classic Court Shoe styles my faves are the Cliff Court Shoes (£35)
I really do think 2017 will be a good year for us wide fit gals if these picks are anything to go by! Bye bye basics and hello gorgeous shoes that just happen to be wider fitting, it’s about time and I can’t wait to see what else is in store as we get into the height of Spring Summer launches! Let me know if there’s any amazing shoes I’ve missed from this edit by hitting us up on our social channels!
