11 Best Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet

Best Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet

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 on 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 Shoes For Wide Feet: Performance Models

curry 9

Under Armour Curry 9

The Under Armour Curry 9 is Stephen Curry‘s second attempt at a signature sneaker with his own brand within a brand, and it’s even better than the first one. This not only made our list for 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. The Flow technology is also smooth for all of your moves on the court. Read the full review. Price: $160

adidas Harden Vol 6 no background

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 The materials are on the cheap and outdated side of the spectrum, but they do still conform to the foot really well and will allow for a nice break in period.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

adidas Trae Young 1

The adidas Trae Young 1 was not a disappointment, and it’s more than a good attempt at a first signature sneaker. The midsole is Lightstrike, and the whole heel section is Boost. Both are very comfortable, and most people will enjoy them on the court. The shoe is also made on a very wide last, so instability is less of an issue and it delivers a better fit for wide-footers.

Nike Zoom GT Run

These guys are actually a good shoe for wide-footers, but everyone else might not like them. This is due to the material and the containment. While well suited for wide feet, it’s not great for more typical foot shapes. They’re lightweight, feature good traction and plush, responsive cushioning. A good all-around performer, all in all.

adidas Dame 8

The adidas Dame 8 is one of those shoes that may look basic to you, but it does pack a lot of tech. One of the highlights of the sneaker is the brand’s newest cushion technology called BouncePro. It’s a dual-density foam setup with a combination of soft and firmer foams. The materials are also accommodating enough that wide footers will enjoy the sneaker’s fit. Little to no break-in time as well. Read the full review. Price: $120

nike lebron 19 white background

Nike LeBron 19

The LeBron 19 is a cushion lover’s dream. The midsole is Cushlon, and it houses an Air Max unit in the back and a huge Zoom Air Unit in the front. It’s very reminiscent of the Penny Hardaway signature line. The traction on our pair feels like it will perform great on the court. The tongue is plush and a huge improvement from the LeBron 18. The full performance review is underway, so take this initial score with a grain of salt, but, in any case, it’s a good bet for wide footers. Read the full review. Price: $250

Li-Ning Way of Wade 9

As a general rule of thumb, most Chinese brands are great for wide-footers. These bad boys have serious Nike Glove vibes (esthetically). They are lightweight and offer great cushion, that boasts both Cloud Foam and Pebax. The upper is light and breathable, and they fit true to size. A bit pricey but a good bet. Read full review. Price: $225

Li-Ning Wade All City 9

The Li-Ning Wade All City 9, a potential shoe-of-the-year candidate, is the yearly Dwyane Wade takedown model that sits below the Li-Ning Way of Wade 9 mentioned previously on this list. They feature many of the performance features from the main signature model at a lesser price. Plus they’re wide-footer approved. What else could you possibly want? Read the full review. Price: $110

Anta GH3

The Anta GH3 will not give you anything that’ll blow your mind, but it offers solid technology. One of the more exciting things here is the two straps connected to the tongue on the lateral and medial sides. They, together with the laces, provide a better fit. This is especially true if you have wide feet. The foam isn’t too soft either, so you don’t feel unstable. Read the full review. Price: $135

Nike PG 6

Nike PG 6

The Nike PG 6 looks like a downgrade on paper from the Nike PG 4 and Nike PG 5, which both had the Nike Air Strobel unit, but they deliver great performance. The midsole is made up of full-length React foam, which feels soft and has some rebound to it. The upper is a basic, layered Jacquard, which does take a bit of break-in time but should make for a custom feel and fit—getting the EP version wouldn’t hurt for wide-footers but they’re accommodating enough for most foot shapes.

Puma RS Dreamer

The PUMA RS Dreamer gets extra points for looks. They feature non-plush, responsive cushioning which is great for guards and smaller players. If you like squishy cushioning, you’ll want to look elsewhere. The Puma RS Dreamer features a great fit for all foot types, solid support, and really good traction. Just add a cushy insole and you’re good. Read full review. Price: $125
