5 Wide Fit Sandals to Step Up Your Footwear Game this Summer


Summer is officially here! Besides marking the beginning of sundress season (bless) it means that it's time to book those pedi appointments and don your sandals! As a 5' 8 plus lady, finding shoes, talk-less sandals, that fit my feet is always a struggle. I still have flashbacks of tear filled shopping trips through dozens of stores looking for a single pair of wide-fit sandals. The plus-sized industry has evolved and expanded so much in such a short period of time to include brands that take to heart the struggle wide-fit ladies face. My goal is to ensure that no lady goes through the same struggles I faced each summer, so I've compiled a list of my top 5 wide fit sandals to help with the wide-fit sandal search!


1. Driven by Optimism Wedge in Rose - ModCloth

As if I could turn down a patterned shoe, this retro funky pair of wedges are the perfect way to add colour to you summer wardrobe. True to the vintage forward feel only ModCloth can provide, these wedges pair a pretty rose-nude tone with a Saved by the Bell inspired zig-zag print to provided a comfortable, yet fun, summer sandal!

2. Micro Suede Lace-Up Wedge Sandal - Ashley Stewart 

Nothing screams summer like a vibrant pop of colour, and what better way to do so than with your shoes! This sizzling pair of lace-up wedge sandals from Ashley Stewart are the perfect statement sandal for your summer wardrobe, bringing a fun burst of colour in an easy to wear sandal. Pair these with a simple white lace dress or your favourite pair of light wash denim capris for a quick and chic look!

3. Braided T-Strap Sandal With Tassel - Lane Bryant

When you love festival style as much as I do, finding festival inspired pieces to add to my everyday wardrobe is an important task. These braided and tasseled beauties from Lane Bryant combine the best of both worlds - fun, colourful, festival inspired accents in a flat sandal that takes sassy casual to a whole new level!

4. Coral Twist Strap Espadrille - New Look

Espadrilles are making a huge come back to the fashion scene (did they ever leave though?). They are always a crowd favourite for the summer season, so why not experiment with different styles? Not only does this heeled pair provide the comfort and wearability that is the back bone of espadrilles everywhere, the coral accent and platform heel adds the perfect summer shade to the mix!

5. Leather Sandals - Asos

This one is for my inner minimalist who tends to make an appearance once in a while. These Asos leather sandals bring sparkle to any summer time look with a "barely there" feel. The best part about leather sandals is that they hold up very well so these can be a permanent addition to your closet to be brought back out year after year!
