How can I tell if I have wide feet?

The shape of your foot is crucial when picking your new football boots. A good way to do your due diligence is by outlining your foot on a piece of paper to measure both length and the widest part of your foot. You can then head over to a size guide like to see what category your foot shape falls into. If you have wide feet, well then you most likely need a pair of wide football boots.

The do’s and don’ts if you have wide feet

There is no such thing as a “one size fits all” when it comes to football boots. Learn more about what you should consider when buying football boots for wide feet.

Do not go up a size to accommodate a wide foot

If you struggle to fit into a pair of boots or they feel uncomfortable in your regular size, then you are most likely better off with another type of football boot.

Never accommodate a wide foot by going up a size on a pair of boots that are simply too narrow. This can lead to pain, bad lockdown and worst of all injuries.

If the boots of your dreams don’t fit properly they are quite simply not for you. And although that can be a hard pill to swallow, you should come to terms with what is best for you. Don’t cheat yourself out of a better football experience by sacrificing performance and comfort for the aesthetics.

Try out different boots to find your best fit

Size and fit should be your main priority when buying new football boots. Modern football boots are designed to give you a close fit without feeling uncomfortable or restricting you in any way. And that is exactly what you should be looking for!

We recommend that you narrow down a list of football boots that you can try in your local football store or order online.

Top 10 football boots for wide feet 2021

Without further ado we present our best football boots for wide feet in 2021. At the end of the day, it is all about personal fit and preference. Therefore, the list has no particular order but is rather meant to inspire you to find your next boot.

Mizuno Morelia 2

Are you looking for the pinnacle of the modern leather boot? The Mizuno Morelia 2 is quite simply one of the most flawless boots money can buy, and luckily they fit pretty much any foot shape.

At first glance they may look like the classic leather boot but looks can be deceiving. Actually, the Morelia 2 is almost as light as the Mercurials. A mere 10 grams separate the two which is an impressive achievement by Mizuno considering the premium materials and built quality.

The thin and rich leather makes them fit perfectly straight out of the box while the deep lacing system gives you the option to adjust lockdown for your particular shape of foot. Another unique feature is the flexible soleplate that moves so naturally with the movement of your feet. With this combination of materials and technologies, the Mizuno Morelia 2 sets new standards of what comfort is in a football boot.

The Morelia 2 should not be confused with the Morelia 3 which is more narrow fitting.

Puma Ultra 1.2

If you have wide feet and are a fan of speed boots then look no further than the PUMA Ultra. With a spacious toe box area and a good amount of width in the middle, they can really make the difference for a wide foot type.

Coming in at just 160 grams, the PUMA Ultra is one of the lightest boots currently available. They are also insanely comfortable due to the soft woven upper that wraps gently around your foot. PUMA Ultra also happens to be one of the market’s cheapest top-end boots, which is just yet another reason why you should consider them as your next boot.

It is worth noting, that the new PUMA Ultra 1.3 is a bit more tight-fitting than the predecessor, the PUMA Ultra 1.2. Of course, you can try out both and see what fits you the best.

Nike Phantom GT

The popular Phantom GT is a brilliant football boot that offers plenty of wiggle room through the entire length of the boot.

Some would argue that the Nike Phantom GT is just a wider variant of the Nike Mercurial. And that makes them a great alternative if your wide feet didn't fit into the Mercurials.

Although the synthetic material won’t stretch as much as leather it will definitely soften up with time to provide an even more comfortable and adaptive fit.

Nike Tiempo Legend

The Tiempo Legend series are known for offering unique comfort and the sophisticated touch of leather. If these are among your priorities and you have a wider foot shape, you should definitely add the latest Nike Tiempo Legend to your shortlist.

Overall, we are talking about a well-balanced boot that offers a bit of everything. The new Nike Tiempo Legend 9 stays true to its heritage while incorporating modern technologies. The combination of soft kangaroo leather, quadfit system and flyknit will mold nicely to most foot shapes.

In comparison to the previous Nike Tiempo Legend 8, the new Tiempo Legend 9 can feel a bit tighter with a slightly lower toe box area. If you are interested in the Tiempo series, you can naturally try out both to find your best match.

Mizuno Rebula 3

You might have noticed that we are quite fond of Mizuno football boots. The unique level of comfort and touch you get from the premium kangaroo leather, that stretches and molds to the shape of your foot perfectly, can be incredibly valuable for a wider foot shape.

The new Mizuno Rebula 3 has been built over the same foot shape as the predecessor which was a major hit for players with wide feet. The pliable leather upper does its job to perfection while the deep lacing system gives you a more personal fit and lockdown.

When it comes to overall quality and durability, The Mizuno Made in Japan beats the competition, which is also reflected by the price tag. But if you are looking for a next-level leather football boot then Mizuno is definitely worth every penny.

We recommend you try out Mizuno boots a half to a whole size smaller than your regular size, as they run a bit larger.

PUMA Future Z

Like most PUMA boots, the PUMA Future Z has a relatively wide fit.

Since its launch day, the PUMA Future Z has been a very popular choice due to its incredible comfort and snug fit. One of its unique features is the stretchable FUSIONFIT compression band, which offers a more forgiving fit around the midfoot which is especially accommodating for wider feet.

It’s worth mentioning that the PUMA Future Z has a quite long toe area. So we recommend you try them out in both your regular size and half a size smaller to find your optimal fit.

We recommend that you try the PUMA Future Z in both your regular size and half a size smaller, as they have more length than one would assume.

Nike Mercurial 14

It may come as a bit of a surprise that we have included a pair of Nike Mercurials on a list of football boots for wide feet. Over time the Nike Mercurial has got a more spacious construction, which is good news for all of us with wide feet.

The latest Nike Mercurial 14 (and Superfly 8) feels like its predecessor, but with a bit more volume in the front.

When they fit properly, the Nike Mercurial 14 is an overwhelmingly good football boot. The combination of elastic flyknit and a thin synthetic upper gives an incredibly close fit and razor-sharp touch on the ball. Furthermore, the outsole is one of the most aggressive ones available, giving you that extra bite when accelerating.

Although the Mercurial 14 has more width than previous generations, there are several alternatives out there that offer more volume. So before you go all-in on a pair of Mercurials, we recommend you try out different football boots to find your best match.

adidas Predator Freak .1 Low

The adidas Predator Freak .1 Low offers a snug and comfortable fit which will feel forgiving for most foot shapes.

While the looks grab the attention, the adidas Predator Freak is excellent at providing that close feel on the ball which is amplified by the Primeknit material and the grippy Demon Skin spikes scattered across the upper.

While the fit is wide in the front, it should be mentioned that the Predator Freak has a narrow midfoot which can feel a bit cramped for some foot shapes.

adidas Copa Mundial

Next up is your dad’s and every referee’s favourite boot. We are of course talking about the iconic adidas Copa Mundial. There is no denying that the Copa Mundial remains an excellent choice for pretty much any type of player and shape of foot.

If you are looking for a classic leather boot that has the room to fit even the widest foot then the adidas Copa Mundial is your safe choice. Not only does the old-school construction give plenty of width in both the mid- and forefoot, the incredibly soft leather upper will also mold nicely around your foot no matter what shape.

Note that the Copa Mundial will stretch more than a modern leather boot, so we recommend that you get them as tight fitting as possible.

New Balance Furon 6+

With a decent volume and a weight of just around 180 grams the New Balance Furon 6+ falls into the category of a speed boot suitable for wider foot shapes.

Actually, the New Balance Furon 6+ is among the most comfortable boots on the market due to the incredibly soft and flexible Fit Weave upper. Another plus is the new HYPER LOCK lacing system which gives a more forgiving fit and better lockdown than its predecessor. All in all an excellent boot that is arguably one of the best to come out from New Balance to date.

That concludes our top list of best boots for wide feet in 2021. What you end up with is naturally your decision. As long as they fit well and match your priorities you can't go wrong. Remember that if you have slim feet you can also wear wide football boots without any problems. Just don’t expect them to be as tight-fitting as other models.
