The Top 5 Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet (2022)

Updated: May 31, 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.

1. Nike LeBron 19

  • The outsole does an okay job gripping the court, but doesn’t have as much bite as the previous LeBron 18.

  • Bounce Pro cushioning gives the Dame 8 a firm forefoot with lots of heel compression, striking an ideal balance between court feel and protection from impacts.
  • Secure lockdown across the foot with strong lateral stability and a wide base to avoid roll-overs.

5. Puma Clyde All-Pro

  • Perhaps the best traction of any shoe this year. Multidirectional pattern helps you grip, stop on a dime, and cut all over the court.
  • A very nice cushioning upgrade over Puma's previous basketball shoes provides good responsiveness and feedback.
  • Support is excellent for a low-cut silhouette.
