Wide Fit Skechers: Everything you need to know
From our years of experience: Begg Shoes are a leading independent stockist of Skechers in the UK. We have nine stores and many years or experience working with Skechers. Our customers often ask about wider fitting options and we have written this blog to help you figure out which shoes are most likely to work for you, if you need a wider fit. Please feel free to contact us for more help or with any questions – enjoy!
Do Skechers come in Wide Fit?
Yes, there are now two options within the Skechers range which cater for wider fitting requirements – either Relaxed Fit or Wide Fit are worth a try. Until 2021, Skechers were generally made in one of two possible fittings – Classic Fit and Relaxed Fit. From our experience in stores, Classic Fit is a standard or regular width fitting, and Relaxed Fit should be considered a wide fit.
Recently a new range which is called Wide Fit has been created though these are fairly rare for now, while they are just entering the market. We recommend you should try either Relaxed Fit or Wide Fit. We have created a Womens Wide Fitting Skechers range on our website as well as a Mens Wide Fit Skechers page to help identify the wide fit styles and save you some hassle.
Do Skechers sizes run big or small?
We have found in our stores that Skechers can offer a relatively generous fit, in most cases, though there is no hard and fast rule. Most of our customers stick with their regular shoe size. Our Skechers are sold in their UK sizes on our website and some styles come in half sizes too.
Are Skechers good for wide feet?
Skechers wide fit trainers are a great option for those needing a wider fitting shoes. The extra width across the toe box offers a comfier fit, and the uppers are often made from soft textiles to provide a flexible and comfortable fit. If you are doing a lot of walking or longer distances, the very soft and lightweight nature of trainers may not be the right choice. We recommend you try to pick the right type of shoe for the job.
