WHAT SHOES ARE BEST FOR NARROW FEET?
A better fitting shoe means a better performing shoe. And you shouldn't have to compromise on fit or performance just because you have narrow feet. Here are a few tips for finding a great fit:
Focus on snug-fitting features like Nike Flyknit or Nike Flywire. Shoes with a Flyknit upper hug the feet like a breathable, supportive sock that contours to your feet. And Flywire cables help create a secure, locked-down feel as you tighten the shoelaces.
Look for styles that tend to run narrower. When it comes to running and training, you may want to try shoes that tend to offer a narrower fit, like the Nike Joyride Run Flyknit or the Nike Free RN 5.0 (or another Nike Free pair). And if you're looking for a narrower day-to-day lifestyle shoe, try Cortez sneakers or the Women's AF-1 Sage.
Think outside your usual shoes. For men, try a women's shoe instead. The standard width for women is equivalent to a men's narrow width, and sometimes the heel of women's shoes is also slightly narrower. Just add 1.5 shoe sizes to your usual men's size to determine what size to try in women's. For example, if you wear a men's size 9, try a women's size 10.5.
Give it a go. If you have narrow feet, sometimes there's no way to know if a shoe fits until you try it on and test it out.
And if the fit isn't right, return them (yep, even after you try them out).
