5 Easy Tips to Create Custom Shoes for Large Feet

Do you believe that having wide or big feet means sacrificing style and comfort? Well, think again! 

We understand the struggles faced by individuals with wide or large feet when it comes to finding shoes that not only fit well but also make a statement. It can be frustrating to settle for limited options or compromise on style just because the mainstream shoe industry fails to cater to your unique needs.

But fear not! We will share five easy and practical tips that will empower you to design and create custom shoes tailored specifically for your wide or big feet. From understanding your foot measurements to selecting the right materials and implementing modifications, we've got you covered.

So get ready to step into a world where larger feet no longer limit your footwear choices. 


Why Large Feet Require Custom Shoes for Every Occasion

Unlike narrow feet, large feet can suffer from the lack of variety of designs and sizes when you're looking for a dress shoe, a loafer, or classic shoes, especially because most shoe stores stick to standard sizes.

But this can't be a problem for any custom-made shoe brand, especially ADORSI. We don't just create your size; we are careful when it comes to creating a whole experience of foot comfort and elegance; an experience where you don't have to compromise one thing to get the other.

Broad feet may mean only wider feet or longer feet; it doesn't necessarily mean both if that's what you're thinking. The thing is, with standard shoe sizes that you can find at regular stores they usually get the standard measurements according to the whole feet not only a specific part of the feet.

We don't count on such a thing as a regular measurement; we create your own special measurements so that you can have your own perfectly plus-size shoes, whether they're casual shoes or formal ones.
As you might struggle with the lack of a wide range of shoes that you can use on different occasions, ADORSI comes to the rescue. Just think of it, and we have it: customizable dress shoes, loafers, square-toed, derbies, and much more.


5 Tips to Create the Best Custom Shoes for Large Feet

1. Make Sure Your “Accurate Size” Is Accurate

Your shoe size can change with time. You might need an above-average shoe size several occasions or even extra-wide shoes for others. You might have noticed that your old dress shoes got a little tighter since the last time you have worn them.

Don't think that it's because they shrunk, yes, some types of synthetic leather can shrink, but this also might mean that your feet might need wide-width shoes, for example:

Walking for long hours and weight gain can cause your feet to grow flatter and so, what we identify as bigger.

The whole foot doesn't grow bigger all of a sudden but with time and the physical effort that you make, then yes it can.

It can be a medical condition that may cause your feet to grow suddenly, and if that happens you'll have to check with your doctor and give your feet the comfort they need by getting them the right current size.

2. Ask for a Roomy Toe Box for Comfort

One of the most important aspects of creating custom-made shoes for your large feet is ensuring comfort, and that starts with asking for a roomy toe box. At Adorsi, we understand the significance of having comfortable larger shoe sizes that don't cramp your toes or leave you feeling restricted.

Imagine slipping your feet into a pair of elegant dress shoes, trendy sneakers, or stylish boots, that have ample space for your toes to wiggle and breathe. It's like giving your huge feet a cozy sanctuary! By requesting a roomy toe box, you can say goodbye to the discomfort and pain often associated with ill-fitting shoes.

At Adorsi, You can find shoes that are both style and comfortable but in larger sizes. Our skilled artisans meticulously design and create custom shoes, ensuring that the toe box is spacious enough to accommodate your feet comfortably.


3. Use the Best Insole for Your Feet

The shoe's outer sole and insole can make all the difference in your experience. They're not just about the right shoe size, they're also about the right kind of material they're made of also the ratios they're created with letting room for your feet to breathe inside the shoe.

This might be something you can really benefit from if you have a medical condition, one that requires your feet to be ventilated all the time.


4. Choose materials with some elasticity

One important tip we would like to share is to choose materials with some elasticity when designing your custom-made shoes. Opting for such materials can make a world of difference in terms of comfort and fit, as they offer flexibility to accommodate the unique shape and size of your feet.

The beauty of materials with elasticity is that they provide a snug yet adaptable fit. They have the ability to stretch and mold to the contours of your feet, ensuring a comfortable experience. This means that your shoes won't feel too tight, restricting your movement or causing discomfort.

By selecting materials with elasticity, you can enjoy greater ease of movement and a reduced strain on your feet. Whether you are walking, running, or simply going about your day, your custom-made shoes will provide the necessary support while allowing your feet to move naturally.

Here are a few examples of materials that possess the elasticity you should look for:

1. Leather: Genuine leather, especially high-quality calfskin or lambskin, is known for its natural elasticity. It adapts to your feet's contours over time, ensuring a personalized fit. Plus, it's a durable and stylish choice.

2. Suede: Suede is another fantastic option as it has a soft texture and inherent stretchiness. It molds to the shape of your feet and offers a plush feel while maintaining breathability.

3. Stretchable Synthetic Materials: Certain synthetic materials, like elastane blends or neoprene, possess excellent elasticity. They offer a snug fit and can comfortably accommodate wider feet.

At Adorsi, we take pride in our expertise in crafting custom-made shoes that perfectly suit your individual needs. Our team of skilled artisans is dedicated to delivering superior quality footwear that not only fits impeccably but also looks fantastic.

We offer a wide range of materials with varying degrees of elasticity, allowing you to customize your shoes to your liking.

5. Measure Both Of Your Feet

While it may seem like a logical assumption that both of our feet should be the same size, the reality is often different. Yes, our feet may have the same measurements, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are the same size.

When we stand or walk, we tend to distribute our weight unevenly, relying on one foot slightly more than the other. This can cause one foot to expand slightly more than the other. Although this difference in foot size may not be visible, it can certainly be felt when you wear your shoes.

That's why it's crucial to consider both the fit of loose shoes and the potential issues that tight shoes may cause. Looser shoes provide your feet with room to breathe and accommodate any slight variations in size between your feet. On the other hand, tight shoes can cause discomfort and restrict natural movement, leading to potential discomfort and foot problems.

That's why it's important to acknowledge and be mindful of the size of both feet. 

ADORSI offers you a total free remake guarantee for these kinds of situations, so rest assured, even if it's not the ultimate comfort you're looking for, we are ready to make it again until it is.


Things to Do When You Test Your New Shoes

Now that you have your new bespoke shoes, it's time to put them to the test and make sure they're everything you hoped for.

Here are some things you can do to ensure a great experience:

1. Take them for a stroll

Start by taking a leisurely walk in your new shoes. Pay attention to how they feel on your feet. Do they provide ample support and cushioning? Is the sizing just right? Take note of any discomfort or areas that may need adjustment.

2. Test them on different surfaces

Try walking on various surfaces such as pavement, grass, or gravel. This will give you a better understanding of how the shoes perform in different environments. Notice if the grip is sufficient and if the shoes maintain their stability on different terrains.

3. Take them for a jog or run

If you're a runner or enjoy jogging, take your new shoes for a spin. Gradually increase your pace and observe how they respond to your movements. Do they offer the necessary flexibility and shock absorption? Keep an eye out for any signs of discomfort or rubbing.

4. Wear Them Throughout the Day

Put your custom-made shoes to the ultimate test by wearing them for an entire day. Whether you're running errands, going to work, or engaging in your favorite activities, pay attention to how your feet feel after prolonged wear. Are they still comfortable and supportive? Take note of any areas that may require further adjustment.

5. Experiment With Different Socks

Try wearing your new shoes with various types of socks. This will help you gauge how they feel with different levels of thickness and materials. It's essential to ensure your shoes accommodate your preferred sock choices for maximum comfort.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. Why do I have large and wide feet?

Many reasons can cause your feet to grow as we mentioned, maybe long hours walking or running in your shoes causes the feet arch to flatten a little, making it look bigger or wider.

That's why ADORSI avoids the mistake of assuming your size and making it into a standard size. Even if your size includes a half, that won't be an issue. We only make your size, not the world's standards.

2. Is it better for your shoes to be tighter or looser?

In general, it's said that the looser shoes are better as they give your feet room to grow as well they let good ventilation in.

But, there is no place for this question with customized shoes, as they are exactly a custom fit for your size, so looser or tighter isn't a thing we know; our measurement dictionary only includes the word “Fit.”
