You'll need wide fitting shoes. At Run and Become we've got lots of wide running shoes you can try.
It's always advisable to come into our store to get a proper Natural Gait Analysis shoe fitting. We can then offer you some different models to try and make sure you end up with a suitable shoe for your foot strike and foot shape. Not near London? We offer Online Gait Analysis, where we can also take into account the shape of your foot.
Meanwhile, here are some of the wide-fitting options we stock...
The ever-popular CloudGo is now available in a wide fitting. This lightweight, flexible neutral shoe is built on a 10mm heel drop. The Helion™ cushioning provides responsive energy-return, with a spring-back sensation in the midsole. Excellent for runners wanting lightweight road shoes in a wide fit.
New Balance's most cushioned neutral shoe is lightweight, flexible and very shock absorbent. Built on an 6mm drop to promote a more natural, midfoot strike. The Men's 1080 comes in a wide (2E) and an extra wide (4E) fitting. The 4E 1080 is the widest of all neutral shoes available, as far as we know. The Women's comes in a wide fitting (D). New Balance wide fittings are often a little deeper than those from other brands, so they give you a bit more space between the insole and the upper, creating more volume for your foot.
The Brooks Ghost franchise of well cushioned, stable, neutral shoes is tremendously popular. DNA LOFT 2 cushioning provides consistently soft yet responsive cushioning from heel to forefoot. A stretchy, engineered mesh upper shapes itself to the foot’s natural contours. It comes in 2E and 4E widths for men and a D width for women.
The Glycerin is the ultimate in softness! Brooks' top-of-the-range neutral shoe features a DNA Loft midsole for a supremely comfy and pillowy feeling, while still offering all the responsiveness and durability you need from a running shoe. An adaptable double-jaquard mesh upper conforms to fit your foot's individual shape. It comes in a 2E width for men and a D width for women.
Hoka are known for their exceptionally well-padded running shoes, with outsized midsoles that almost resemble platform shoes. They're favoured by ultra-distance runners, runners with persistent injury problems and those who just love a seriously cushioned feel when running or walking. Many of our customers find the fit of Hoka shoes too narrow for them, so we're happy to be able to offer the Bondi – Hoka's loved and trusted ultra-cushioned road running shoe for the neutral striker – in a wide fitting. Its compression-moulded EVA midsole is 31mm thick at the heel and 27mm at the forefoot, to give you a soft underfoot feeling and plenty of impact absorption. A Meta-Rocker propels you from heel to forefoot in a smooth forward motion.
If your feet have a tendency to collapse inwards when running or walking, your leg is being pulled out of the correct position with every step. You’ll therefore need some support on the inside of the shoe to hold the foot upright and prevent injury.
The Adrenaline GTS is one of the most popular and effective antipronation shoes. The GuideRails support system reduces pronation and holds the foot in the optimum position. DNA LOFT 2 cushioning lessens the shock on landing. A super breathable upper with a midfoot saddle to cradle the foot completes the experience. Available in 2E and 4E for men, and D for women.
A breathable and stretchy engineered-mesh upper adapts to the shape of your foot for a comfortable fit. A dual layer midsole, featuring softer materials on top and firmer materials underneath, offers a cushioned underfoot experience. Structurally sound, a firmer density post on the inside stabilises pronating feet. In our experience, wide-fitting New Balance shoes tend to be a bit broader and deeper than their equivalents in other makes, so they offer a little more volume than others. Wide and extra wide for men (2E and 4E), and wide (D) for women.
The Cloudflyer is a well-cushioned trainer with mild support. The Cloud pod segments on the outsole are larger than on this model's predecessor, to provide more stability and comfort on the road. A padded tongue brings a more customised fit. With the engineered mesh upper, breathability has massively improved.
Superb cushioning and a super-lightweight feelare the main points of difference with the Arahi. The J-Frame™ provides unique anti-pronation support, by holding the foot in a stable position from the lateral and medial side. The zonal upper is breathable in places where most needed. It also contains recycled materials to support the environment. Hoka wide-fitting shoes are a bit snugger in comparison with other brands.
For years and years there was a gap in the market for a specifically wide-fitting off-road shoe. Up until now, we've had to make do with the standard-width trail-running shoes that come up wider than the rest, which can vary from year to year. These brands have provided us with a solution...
In comparison with the Challenger, Hoka Speedgoat has a more durable Vibram Megagrip outsole. Not only does it have deeper lugs but it also offers the 'stepped' lugs feature, which will help you to shake away the mud from your shoes and keep your feet light.
This is the second edition of Salomon's maximum-cushioned trail-running shoe. As its name suggests, the Ultra Glide is made for short to long or even ultra distance. Salomon's specific Contagrip® outsole is designed for mixed terrain: road, off-road, wet or dry conditions. The new upper is soft and breathable.
