10+ 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

Best Basketball Shoe for Wide Feet

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

New Balance TWO WXY V2

New Balance TWO WXY V2

The New Balance TWO WXY V2 is an upgrade from the last version and is even better than their flagship model for the Klaw. The traction is fantastic for as long as it lasts. The cushion with FuelCell and Abzorb DRS works well for most positions. The FitWeave upper is comfortable and moves well with your feet. The fit is accommodating enough for wide-footers to enjoy it.

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 The materials are on the cheap and outdated side of the spectrum, but they do still conform to the foot really well and will allow for a nice break in period.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 PG 6

Nike PG 6

The Nike PG 6 delivers 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.

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.

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. A good bet for wide footers. Read the full review. Price: $250

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

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.

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

puma rs dreamer no background

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

Best Budget Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet

Best Budget Basketball Shoes: Under Armour Curry 3Z5

Under Armour Curry 3Z5

The Under Armour Curry 3Z5 is a worthy successor to the previously well-known 3Zero line. The shoe might look basic, but their on-court performance definitely is not.

There are synthetic leather overlays on the mesh build, which combines quick to no break-in time with good containment and added durability. The MicroG used feels fluffy and very responsive as the cut is thin. Wide footers can also go true to size. Read the full review.Price: $80

Best Outdoor Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet

Best Outdoor Basketball Shoes: 361°-Zen-3

361° Zen 3

The 361° Zen 3 is a great all-around outdoor option, but if you need a wide-foot option, this is our top pick. 361º is a Chinese brand, and Chinese brands usually build their shoes on wider lasts. Wide footers that want to be able to play outdoors for hours, this is the shoe for you. See the full review. Price: $100
