Wide Fit Skechers Trainers Are Here!

Did you know that ill-fitting shoes can cause foot pain and deformities in the foot? A recent study on foot pain found that 37% of older adults with foot pain or foot deformities were actually wearing the wrong size or width of shoes!

Finding the perfect pair of shoes is a challenge if you're a woman or a man with problem feet. However, like everyone else, you want good-looking trendy footwear.

Wide fit Skechers might be just the shoes you're looking for! Read on to find out why.

Skechers Shoes Begins

From a fledgling company established in 1992 by the former CEO of L.A. Gear, Robert Greenberg, by 2020, Skechers quickly soared to ranking in the world's top ten shoe brands! This billion-dollar company sells shoes in more than 170 countries worldwide and is now the fourth most prominent brand in the UK!

Skechers started out with the Cascades men's logger boots in 1992. They then expanded their offerings to include kid's shoes, sandals, sports shoes, work boots, and many retro styles for men and women. As a result, Skechers now offers over three thousand different footwear styles for men, women, and children!

Skechers success was based on their ability to determine what people want. They looked at the needs of athletes, hairdressers, and restaurant workers. They also enlisted celebrities like Meb Keflezighi, the Boston Marathon winner and the well-known Kim Kardashian, to promote their high-quality footwear.

In their pursuit of excellence, Skechers also recognised that not all feet are created the same. As a result, they designed their innovative wide-fit Skechers and Skechers Arch Fit wide width. We specialist in the wider fit range of Skechers, so all the Skechers you find on our website will be wide-fit or extra wide!

What is Different About Skechers?

Skechers' focus has been comfort, quality, support, and flexibility. This has been achieved through advanced technology and superior materials. We have always been really impressed with how much effort Skechers puts into researching new materials and ways of improving comfort and levels of support in their footwear. Those of us with wider feet can now enjoy these advancements and get branded trainers that don't squeeze our feet. Here are just some of the developments we love.


Many Skechers sports and active-wear shoes are made with quality mesh fabric.

This allows air to circulate throughout the shoe to keep your feet dry and comfortable. This also prevents the build-up of bacteria leading to foot odour.

The mesh can also help prevent chafing and discomfort if you have bunions or hammertoes.


Skechers uses memory foam technology developed by NASA to make your shoes mould to your feet, adding a significant element of comfort. In addition, if the memory foam loses its resilience, you can get a replacement insole, which is a huge advantage!

Many of the styles of Skechers uses 5 Gen Cushioning Technology in the midsole to offer a lightweight and responsive cushion to protect the wearer's feet during activity.

The outsole of Skechers arch fit wide width features high-rebound Comfort Pillar Technology, another trademarked characteristic of the high-quality Skechers provides.


Another hugely appreciated quality of Skechers shoes is how lightweight they are. The minimalist technology makes most running or walking Skechers some of the lightest shoes on the market.

Are Skechers Great For Wide Feet?

Yes, Skechers now includes wide-fit and extra wide fit in many of their styles!

Ladies' Wide Fit Skechers

Ladies have a large choice of wider fitting Skecher trainers. You can go for a secure lace up if you are looking for trainers for active wear or a slip-on if you just have an active life or looking for a really comfortable pair for all day wear. 

Whatever style you go for you will benefit from the high-quality cushioning in the insoles and Skecher arch support technology.

We are adding new styles all the time as Skechers introduces their ladies wide fitting range, but stock sells quickly so don't delay if you see a pair you like.

Can you get Skechers Arch Fit in Wide Widths?

The simple answer is YES. We include plenty of wider fitting Arch Fit styles in our Skechers collection.

What is arch fit? Well, Skechers uses advanced technology which supports the arches. This is important for people who suffer from plantar fasciitis and problems with overpronation or a tendency to roll the foot inwards. 

The arch support insole is contoured and has a heel cup to provide stability. If, however, you have your own orthotics, you can even remove this insole while still benefiting from Sketchers podiatrist certified resilient foam used for shock absorption to dull the impact of foot landings.

People with high arches need extra room in the upper. Skechers provides for this with a four-way stretch mesh or knit in many of the models. This feature is forgiving of high arches or any other foot problems. In addition, the inner lining of the shoe is non-abrasive while providing moisture-wicking to keep your feet comfortable and dry.

Take a Walk in Comfort with Skechers

As you can see, it's not surprising that Skechers has been earning top-notch reviews for their many styles and models of shoes. The appeal of Skechers is indisputable–for kids, adults, and anyone with challenges with shoe fit.

It's time to investigate Wide Fit Sketchers and discover this quality for yourself!
