Top 10 Widest Natural Shoes

Do you have trouble finding shoes with enough room in the toe box? We’re here to help! We’ve pulled together a list of the top 10 widest toe box shoes. All of the shoes on this list are Correct Toes approved and respect the natural shape of the foot. If you find that you need a little extra room in your shoes, we recommend removing the liner to gain more width.


Softstar | Primal RunAmoc


Designed with an extra wide toe box, the Primal RunAmoc allows toes to splay freely and easily accommodates Correct Toes. It’s handmade with natural leathers and a flexible Vibram outsole. The Primal RunAmoc is currently the widest natural toe box shoe on the market.


Ahinsa | All Styles


Designed by a physiotherapist, all of Ahinsa’s footwear offers a generous amount of room in the toe box. Each of their shoe styles promote natural foot function through a flexible design and a sole that’s flat from heel-to-toe. Ahinsa shoes are ethically handmade and designed with cruelty free material that’s 100% vegan. Custom sizing is also available.


Feelmax | Kuuva 4

The Kuuva 4 is a natural foot friendly waterproof boot. The upper is made from leather and nylon, with an additional waterproof mid-lining. The 4 mm lugs will provide your feet with the traction they need without sacrificing ground feel.


Lems | Boulder Boot 



This boot can handle everything from pavement to trail. Providing ample space in the toe box, the Boulder Boot is lightweight, naturally shaped and very flexible. Feet will stay dry and warm with the water resistant and flannel-lined upper.


Softstar | Dash


The Softstar Dash is constructed with premium leather and a Vibram sole. With a 5 mm Trail sole or 2 mm Street sole, the Dash is extremely flexible and comes in narrow, regular and wide widths. We suggest the wide width for the best fit with Correct Toes.


Som Footwear | All Styles 

Som Footwear’s multi-purpose shoes have a natural foot shape design, a highly durable SOM sole and a flexible canvas upper. Their footwear is incredibly lightweight, and all of their styles are Vegan-friendly.



The Drifter Leather | Custom Shoe Styles 


The Drifter Leather offers custom-made shoes crafted with high quality leather uppers and Vibram outsoles. Their shoes can be made to an individual’s specific foot measurements, providing a custom fit to accommodate Correct Toes.


Altra Running |  Escalante 



The Escalante is a lightweight, zero-drop shoe with a 25mm stack height. There’s plenty of width at the ends of the toes in both the men’s and women’s version, and the knit upper lends some additional room and flexibility.




Fitkicks are light, flexible and allow for natural foot movement. Easy to slip into, they feature a protective toe guard and a stretchy upper material that forms to the feet.




Glerups blend 100% natural Merino and Gotland wool to create slippers that offer comfort and breathability. This slipper has two sole options – an indoor sole made of vegetable tanned calf skin or an outdoor rubber sole.

  1. Hi I am looking for some nice dressy shoes in Wide…do you have any styles ?

  2. My Topo Tribute running shoes are zero drop and have a very roomy toe box. I’m quite happy with them.

  3. Hello Correct Toes!

    I have been following your newsletter for a few years now and I appreciate all your minimalist footwear related content and shoe reviews like this one! So thank you!

    In general, I like minimalist shoes a lot but over the years, I have found myself gravitating more and more towards one brand, Altra, simply because of the brands that I’ve tried (my other experience is with Lems), Altra always seem to have the most comfortable amount of cushioning underfoot. This is important to me because I spend most of my work days running around on concrete floors.

    I love seeing all the shoes out there, so I am wondering if when you review shoes you could perhaps consider including a description of the amount of cushioning, such as 8mm, 12mm, 20mm, or even just calling it minimum, medium, maximum, or something like that.

    Thanks again for all the great content.

  4. Oops, I see now you do include that info in some of the shoe descriptions. I guess I just want to point out that “stack height” (that’s what I’m referring to is called, right?) is of primary importance to me, although I know some people like the opposite. Thanks again.

    1. Hi John,

      Thanks for your feedback! We’ll keep that in mind going forward when reviewing and promoting shoes. And yes, “stack height” is the correct term.

  5. I was very disappointed when Altra narrowed their shoes. I had to stop buying them. Had 4 pairs.
    Are the shoes above back to the previous width? I now where Topo Athletic.
    Thank you,
    Doug, plantar FASCIOSIS survivor.

    1. Hi Doug,

      It really depends on the model with Altra. Some have maintained a wider toe box, while others have narrowed. We’ve found that the Escalante has been a good fit for people, especially because the upper is so flexible.

      Topo is a great alternative though!

  6. Generally, how “wide” is “wide”? The spread of my foot is 4-1/2″ with the aligner in place and weight on the front of my foot. I am afraid to ask, but are any of these shoes going to accomodate 4-1/2″? I suffer from “foot humiliation” (just kidding) already because my dad’s favorite new date intro was “Here to pick up my daughter? She just got a new job with the forestry service, stomping out fires”! Anyway, I’m trying to figure out where to start with this total commitment to strong feet.

  7. Hi, I have bunions and that part of my foot is very very wide. I feel squished in every shoe I tried on. Today I tried on the Altra Escalante and it felt very narrow for my feet. What shoe wild you recommend for me for walking (mostly pavement) and the gym?

    1. Hi Kassia- I’d look into Softstar’s Primal RunAmoc for a very wide toebox. You can also try wearing men’s models instead of women’s. Men’s models are typically wider and may accommodate your feet better.
