The title says it all – extra large, Extra Wide Mens Boots are in stock at XL feet. Plenty could be said on the trials and travails of guys with large or wide feet as it respects the search for adequate footwear. Without drawing it out too far, suffice it to say that it’s a trip and a half to try to find extra large boots or shoes for men.
There is a fine detail in this that sometimes gets overlooked during the search for shoes and boots that don’t cause undue pain and, dare we say, fit properly. While the trials of guys looking for extra large boots may be fairly well known, or could be discerned, the trials of those looking for extra wide boots may be lesser known.
The thing about this is, however, that if you have extra wide feet, boots won’t do for you even if they are technically in your size. Boots that are in your size might fit your foot but put a large amount of pressure on your toes or the balls of your feet. If that’s the case, then you are a prime candidate for wide boots, and moreover, extra large boots just might not be large enough for you.
In that scenario, you’ll find it incumbent upon you to find boots that are wide enough to accommodate your feet. If you don’t you will be putting yourself at an elevated risk of a number of problems. For example, you will probably be much more likely to develop or aggravate arthritis, and you will certainly be at a higher risk of developing corns. This is particularly true if the boots you currently wear place a lot of pressure on the balls of your feet or on the joints of your toes.
Then there is the more subjective reality that you will be in discomfort most if not all of the time. One of the areas that is most often affected adversely by inadequate width is the toe box. If you’ve ever experienced the sensation of narrow boots, then you know it to be a painful one. Most of the time it is a relatively minor inconvenience, but if you need steel toe or composite toe boots it’s a whole different issue.
If you have ever been unfortunate enough to experience the affliction of narrow boots paired with safety toe features, then you don’t need any help from us to jog your memory. If you haven’t then take us at our word. Expressions such as ‘ground beef’ and ‘rubbed raw’ have been used to describe the experience. It is an experience best left to the books and the past than endured firsthand.
The point is simple – if you have extra large and extra wide feet, then you need not only extra large boots, but extra wide mens boots as well – in the same package, that is. But perhaps you have not come here for an explanation or for a course in apologetics and you are only seeking succor in the form of boots that fit. In that case, we have not only the explanation of the situation but the balm for your wounds. We can help you find boots that fit, and fit well.
