Sizing

Many of the shoes in this list offer extra-wide widths, but some only come in regular widths. Consider your needs as well as if your feet may swell. It is also a good idea to read reviews to determine if shoes tend to run larger or smaller.

Usage

Before making your purchase, consider where and how you will be wearing your shoes. If you plan on exercising or taking long walks in them, make sure you have a good fit and enough support in the sole to keep you comfortable during extended wear.

Getting Shoes On And Off

If it is difficult for you to bend over, or if you have dexterity issues in your hands, consider a shoe that is easy to slip on and off. Shoes with out laces may be easiest, but also consider if you will need an adjustable strap to tighten your shoes.

Material And Adjustability

If your feet tend to swell or you have flare-ups, laces or an adjustable strap might be ideal. Consider also the material of the shoe. Fabrics like leather may stretch with time, but might not be easily adjustable. If you plan to wear your shoes during warm summer months, consider a breathable fabric to keep you feet cool and your shoes from smelling.
