Best Sandals for Narrow Feet

As you have most likely noticed when it comes to wider feet the options and availability of wide width shoes are endless, but what about a Narrow Foot. Wearing regular or wide footwear can cause irritating and blister causing friction in a narrow foot, not to mention instability which may lead to injuries.
So in this article, I have narrowed down some excellent tips for Narrow feet and footwear as well as some great options in Ladies sandals for a Narrow foot.


Narrow Feet and The Issues Related to Narrow Feet


  • Regular Shoes – The greatest issue with narrow feet is that most regular shoe types will fit loosely, even medium width shoes will not fit properly. Improperly fitting and loose footwear can cause your feet to slide, decrease stability and result in injury. Besides this, a loose shoe will irritate your feet and the friction and rubbing can result in blisters and even Bunions, Calluses and corns in the end.
  • Finding Footwear – Finding footwear for a narrow foot is not easy, and most narrow styles are not all that appealing. You may need to look for a shoe brand that is naturally more narrow than other brands or look out for brands which offer a narrow fit as well.
  • Proper Support – Most Narrow style shoes do not offer much comfort and support features, and most of your orthopedic shoes and comfort shoe brands only offer wider width options. If you have a foot condition or deformity it may be pretty hard finding a therapeutic shoe in a narrow fit.

Some Tips on getting Your regular Shoes to Fit your Narrow Feet

If you would like to fit into a regular pair of shoes, here are a few tips to try, although I would rather recommend opting for a Narrow fit option. Most of these tips, however, will only work in a closed style shoe.
  • Lace Up – Lacing your shoes upright to the top and reinforcing the laces can help to provide a better and slightly more snug fit.
  • Heel Inserts – A heel insert can prevent your feet from slipping around in your shoes by creating a better grip.
  • Arch Support – You can use one arch support or stack one on top of the other to take up some extra room in your shoes.
  • Gel Pads – A Gel pad under the forefoot lifts your feet slightly and gives a more snug fit.
  • Insoles and Inserts – An insole or insert can provide comfort and cushioning while also taking up some space in your shoes to make them a bit narrower.
  • DO NOT – Never stuff your shoes with tissue papers or cotton balls as these will cause pain and slip around in your shoes.
