I get it… for those of us with wider feet boots can be a nightmare. As a tall, plus size woman, I know all too well the perils of unpackaging a brand new pair of “wide” boots only to discover they barely make it over my ankles. 

So, I’m going to try and save you from that by listing the top ankle boots that accommodate wide soles, toes, and ankles, drawing from both personal experience and from the best reviewed boots online.

wide width low heel booties

Every pair of Luoikas I’ve bought have fit, and comfortably too. They specialize in wide soles, and these comfortably fit over my ankles and have plenty of room for my toes.

These are one of the most affordable ankle boots I could find, which is why I snapped up a pair in black myself. They’re made from a soft suede with a simple single zipper down the side for added comfort, and are rated 4.6 stars out of 5 overall.

I’m hoping to get a couple years of wear out of them but at this price that’s pretty darn good.

doc martens chelsea boot wide

Doc Martens are known for running large, both in foot size and width. So, even though they don’t specify that these come in wide sizes, these are absolutely going to fit most wide feet.

I picked out this Chelsea boot because of the generous sizing (it runs all the way up to a 15 women’s or 14 men’s) making it super tall girl friendly!

wide width ankle booties

This boot has an elegant design from Luoika, and comes in a range of suede colors from black to a dark khaki that really caught my eye.

What I love about Luoika is they always design footwear for plus size women. Their memory foam insole is 1.5 times thicker than the average insole, able to take our weight without messing the insole up, which just shows their awesome attention to detail!


clarks cora rouched ankle boot

Wide sizes up to: 10
Price: $110
Shop the Cora from Clarks

wide width ankle boot

Clarks have a very decent range of wide width footwear. I’ve personally worn some of their wide width sandals and always found they fit my wide feet on point. And I think, with a very good 4.3 stars as their overall rating, these ankle boots are going to be worth it too.

A double strap, solid buckle, and zip make these visually very appealing.

I was in need of replacing my black booties and found these Clark’s! Very comfortable. True to size. Great for work. Great for everyday. I wear them often!! And the price/value point was on point!

This cute bootie gets the nod because of the dashing denim or burgundy suede colors and a very affordable price tag. Reviewers say you may need to size up in these.

Sizes up to: 11 (run wide)
Price: $169.95
Shop the Doc Martens combat boot

The original Dr. Martens combat boot, renowned for its undeniable style, runs wide and can definitely work for bigger ankles and feet.

These give premium ankle support and are 100% waterproof, as you’d expect! Just look how flattering they look on the legs of plus size influencer, Gabriella Riseto, too.

Shop the Cora Chai from Clarks

wide leather ankle boot

The warm leather option – this is ideal for harsher winter months when you still want to slip on an ankle boot with jeans or leggings as opposed to a full calf boot.

I wouldn’t recommend if you have “extra wide” feet, as some reviewers say the toe area is narrow and they don’t seem like traditional extra wide sizings like the ones we’ve looked at on the list.


chooka waterproof chelsea boot

Wide sizes up to: 11
Price: $40
Shop the Chooka rain boot

Okay, so they don’t specify “wide” sizes, but having read some of the reviews from women with wider feet, you can be sure that women unanimously class these as a wide rain boot. And, they’re a bargain… and waterproof! These would be a superb all-weather boot for a relatively small price.

Make a statement with these elegant yet bold boots from Naturalizer, a brand that I can verify is wide feet friendly.

Available in the burnt cinnamon (above) or in the traditional black leather option, these boots are 100% waterproof and the 3 inch heel is seriously going to accentuate those legs, whether you pair these with denim or a skirt.

sargasso & grey lily boots

This boutique brand specializes in extra wide widths, and as you’d expect from the price, these are genuine suede with foam padded insoles. The double elastic side panels ensure they’re easy to slip on and off, too. 

These are a major statement shoe for going out in. They’d work beautifully paired with jeans in winter.


I picked out a variety of different styles here and hope I’ve saved you from the dreaded boot return process (yeah, that’s a nightmare.) If you’re looking to expand your boot collection further, be sure to check out my list of the best wide calf boots, too.
