I not only have wide feet BUT I also have to wear an Arizona type boot on one foot, I also have to wear a custom orthotic on the other foot. I have a very hard time finding shoes that fit all of that, that are affordable too. Propet is my go to shoe, not all of them work for my purposes but I can find some that work well. These surprised me, I can't wear sandals but I needed something light and airy so that my feet could breath in warm weather and these did the trick. When I looked at them before putting them on I thought they were too small but I decide to give them a try and was so very happy when my feet with all the "things" I have to wear slipped right in. Sigh, finally. Good looks, comfortable, supportive and affrodable. I got two pair and do recommend these for those who have problem feet, I actually let another woman who has problems with her feet try mine on, they worked for her too.

Surprisingly very supportive for problem feet!
I bought the Black-Grey Heather mesh. I am a wide, hard fit with flat feet in need of arch support and room for orthotics. Also, overweight. I am amazed at the comfort of these shoes! After healing from heels spurs, achilles tendonitis, and plantar fasciitis all in my left foot and heel, I have had to be extremely diligent to have good support. I am amazed how supportive these are considering how light they are. These shoes actually are a tad cute, too, which is always a bonus when you are 65+ and need good support. I hope they never stop making them!
Can't beat this comfort, so I wouldn't personally even try.
Such a great shoe. So comfortable from moment one. I realize I may have to do some finagling if the cloth eyelet ever broke like with one reviewer, but I've got thread and a needle so I'd still take this how over many others. I even like them more than the washable walker from Propet. And that was my go-to shoe. now it's this!
Love the look, comfortable, but not very supportive for me
I really do like this shoe. However, for me, they don't support my ankles enough. The sides of the shoe are very soft and "give." I have terribly flat feet and my ankles roll in, so not ideal for me - but I will wear with my orthotics on days I'm not on my feet too much. Very comfortable!
MATERIAL LACE HOLES - NOT SO STRONG
I agree the shoes are comfortable but the design is not exactly right. Instead of grommet type lace holes, the laces are held in place by silky material loops. One of the loops broke the very first time I tried to wear the shoes. It took a few minutes to repair that loop but I am concerned the material loops are just not as strong as a grommet type lace hole. I will be more careful when I look at the pictures and ensure I do not order any more with the material loops. I just wanted everyone to know in case they too miss that detail. I love Propet shoes...this is the first model that could use a bit more design thought.
Not for me
Just got these in 7 - 4E color: Honey. Hate the color. It looks lighter on my PC than in person. Could be a resoultion thing. But they were a dark gold color. I can get over that. With feet my size I have learned to lived things that aren't perfect.
I need to return these though because they were not wide enough and just felt snug all over. I have purchased the same size (7EEEE) in Propet's and they fit great. Not these. They also had almost no arch support. My other Propet's did. Also, as others have stated, the holes for the laces look like they would tear easily if too much pulling went on when lacing up.
Very disappointed. I hope this isn't a trend with Propet and maybe just a fluke or just this style.
