The Top 5 Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet (2022)

Those of us with wide feet know that finding a comfortable basketball shoe that still performs at a high level can be a challenge. Often, getting the width right means moving up a half size (or more), which can throw off the balance of all of the other finely tuned features in the shoe. It’s a tough balancing act, but in these cases fit may unfortunately end up trumping other key features.

It’s a struggle, but finding that perfect fit usually means holding on for dear life and sticking with that model as long as possible. Below you’ll find a list of the highest rated shoes for players with wide feet.
