Best Basketball Shoes for Wide Feet

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 shtore. 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 best basketball shoes for wide feet. Check it out!

under armour embiid 1 no background

The Under Armour Embiid One is one of the best all arround performers. They’re good indoors, good outdoors, good for guards and centers alike, and good for wide footers. Traction and cushion are standout features, while the lockdown wings offer that extra layer of protection to keep you snug and secure on the footbed. Read the full review. Price: $90 $120

under armour curry 8

Under Armour Curry 8

Stephen Curry’s first shoe under his own brand, the Curry 8 was a hell of a good start. It is the first shoe to ever feature UA Flow foam, one of the best foam cushioning set ups currently on the market, and offers some beastly traction. On top of that the wide forefoot build makes the shoe wide-footer-friendly and the lightweight sock-like knit upper is really comfortable and more stable than expected. Price: $160

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. Reed full review. Price: $225

nike lebron 19 white background

Nike LeBron 19

The LeBron 19 is a cushion lovers 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 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

new balance kawhi 4 bounces

New Balance Kawhi

The New Balance Kawhi is Kawhi Leonard’s first signature sneaker and a literal tank of a shoe. The design is based off the similar New Balance OMN1S. If you appreciate stability, you will love these sneakers. They do require some break-in time but after that you get a really solid on-court performer that focuses on support and stability. Read the full review. Price: $160

If you liked the Dame 2, you will like this cushion setup. Read full review. Price: $140

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.
