5 Fashionable Wide Width Shoes (that are also comfortable!)

Posted on December 01 2020

Fashionably Wide Width Shoes - Ally Shoes



At ALLY, we believe every woman deserves to have a pair of comfortable, fitting dress shoes. When we did our initial customer interviews, one of the biggest complaints about heels and flats is the lack of width options. Many women need a wider fit either due to bunions or just a wider toe structure, but their options are limited. They either have to go with styles that look clunky, or size up in order to get more room in the toe box. This is simply not acceptable. As a result, we decided to find innovative ways to make fashionable wide shoes. 


Ally Technology on Fashionable Wide Width Shoes


When first launching ALLY, we decided to offer three different width options (A - narrow, B - medium, C - wide). Recently, due to popular demand, we have also just launched our Extra Wide Width (D Width), which will help anyone who needs more room in the toe box or with bunion issues. For our wide fit, we made sure to only expand in toe-box width, while keeping the middle and back of the shoe as consistent as possible, since most women don’t need the shoes wide throughout. In addition, we also applied an Innovative usage of stretch leather and borrowed best practices from sneaker-making to create flexibility and responsiveness in our shoes.

Wide Ankle Strap Heel (Shoe #1)

This is a savior especially for those with a wider foot in the front and a narrower heel in the back. The strap helps secure your feet while allowing you to find a wider fit, not to mention this is an extremely elegant look.
