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 sizecharter.com 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.

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.
