How do You Know if You Have Wide Feet – Matt’s Guide for 2019/20

Most of us go through our lives without ever stopping to take a good look at our feet and ask ourselves where do they stand in the grand hierarchy of foot sizes.

As you can guess, that is a big mistake, and its consequences only tend to grow bigger if you are an avid runner as I am.

The real issue here is that we usually try to describe our feet through the so-called shoe size, which is:

  1. a pretty arbitrary number that leaves too many details out, and
  2. focuses primarily on the length of the feet rather than their width

That is not that big of a problem if you have narrow feet that can easily slip into any pair of shoes. The folks with the feet that are a bit wider are not nearly as lucky.

But, how do you recognize if you have wide feet, what does that mean for your health and running performance, and is there anything you can do to mitigate this problem?

Let us try to find out.
