Basketball shoes for wide feet are hard to come by. The number of performance basketball shoes that aren’t suitable for wide-footers out there is impressive. There’s nothing worse than ordering a pair of sneakers, waiting patiently for them to arrive, then trying them on and finding out they don’t fit.
With the surge of online shopping and the slow death of malls, wide footers might not get the chance, or just flat out don’t have the time to try sneakers in-store. Which makes it hard to avoid buying cool-looking foot vices.
We have you covered here at WearTesters. We test hundreds of sneakers each year to determine the best overall basketball shoes for the year, but also the best shoes for different on-court needs. So, here are the best basketball shoes for wide feet. Check it out.

Best Basketball Shoe for Wide Feet 2024
Nike GT Jump 2
It’s nice to see the changes Nike made in this shoe. They have taken everything that was great in the first model and tweaked it to make the GT Jump 2 that much better as a performance basketball shoe. As an added bonus for our wide-footed readers, they are a great choice for this foot type. The last they are built on is accommodating and the amazing forefoot cushioning makes for a silky smooth ride on court. Read the full review.
Way of Wade 10
Again, Way of Wade shoes in general are great for wide-footers because of their wider last. The Way of Wade 10 is lightweight and offers great cushion, provided by a dual-density foam setup: Cloud Foam and Pebax. It feels like Zoom Air took steroids and was put under your feet. Simply put, this is one heck of a shoe to play in. If you’re a fan of DWade or want to try non-mainstream shoes, this sneaker is for you. The upper is light and breathable, and they fit true to size. A bit pricey but worth it. Read full review.
Price: $199- $240
Puma Stewie 2
The Puma Stewie 2 is Bianna Stewarts’ second signature, and simply put it is just a great all-around performance model. This top-notch guards shoe boasts excellent indoor traction, a very well-balanced and bouncy cushioning system, and a very secure and natural feeling low-top build. It won’t be a great outdoor option, unfortunately, but as long as you keep them indoors, you will get a very similar on-court experience to the Puma Clyde All-Pro, which is an all-time great. KEEP IN MIND that in the US the Stewie 2 comes in women’s sizes, so if you want the correct men’s size you will need to go 1.5 sizes up (ie: 12M = 13.5W). Read the full review. Price: $125
Under Armour FUTR X ELITE
The Under Armour FUTR X ELITE is a weird basketball shoe, not in a bad way, but there really isn’t another performance basketball shoe out there quite like the FUTR X. Traction is top-notch, cushioning is responsive and speedy, support and containment are awesome, the one sticking point is the fit. You might love it, you might hate it, but one thing is for certain, it is one of the widest and most forgiving toe boxes ever. Read the full review. Price: $150
The Curry 10 is Stephen Curry‘s third signature sneaker under his own brand, and it’s even better than the second one which was already an excellent performance basketball shoe. The Curry 10 lands the number one spot on our list of the best basketball shoes for wide feet and also has a slot on our list of the Best Basketball Shoes overall, but it also makes this one, too.
The key here for wide-footers is the last. It has considerable width and will accommodate most if not all, foot shapes and sizes. On top of that, you get Under Armour’s Flow technology which offers the smoothest rides out there. Read the full review. Price: $160
Wade Shadow 4
The Wade Shadow 4 is another pick from Way of Wade, and the fact is that the wide last with which they construct their shoes are perfect for wide footers. In terms of cushioning, we have a dual-density foam midsole that combines Cloud cushioning (an EVA-based foam) and a forefoot BOOM puck (which is Pebax-based).
Way of Wade All City 10 V2
The Way of Wade All City 10 V2 implements upgrades from the regular Way of Wade All City 10. Way of Wade shoes already have wider last, but one of the best features the V2 incorporates is the functional midfoot strap. Most straps on performance basketball sneakers don’t work and are there for the placebo effect. However, this enhances containment and allows you to adjust the fit to accommodate wide footers.
The well-sculpted and padded heel also adds to the support and fit. Finally, there’s 3/4 length Boom cushion for underfoot comfort. The Way of Wade All City 10 V2 is one of the best basketball shoes from the brand this year. See the full review. Price: $149
Nike PG 5
The Nike PG 5 are bad boys (our term for great performing shoes). Great traction. Materials that actually work in containing one’s foot. Added support features. And a comfortable fit. The Nike PG 5 is a very well-rounded shoe that will accommodate a lot of your basketball needs, especially indoors. One of the better cheap basketball shoes you will find. Read the full review.
adidas Harden Vol 6
The adidas Harden Vol 6 is a great comeback from the heavily criticized adidas Harden Vol 5. The materials are on the cheap and outdated side of the spectrum, but they do still conform to the foot really well and will allow for a nice break-in period. The full-length Boost midsole is very much welcome and feels like the first signature shoe for James Harden. Read the full review. Price: $140

Nike LeBron Witness 7
The Nike LeBron Witness 7 begs the question: where else can you find a nearly full-length Air for $115?. There’s much toe box wiggle room as well so wide-footers should be able to fill up that space for a one-to-one fit. Read the full review. Price: $115
