Q: What shoes does Skechers make in a wide width? What width is considered a wide width?
A: Shoe size and width seems pretty simple, but it’s a bit more complex than it looks. There are multiple options, and everyone’s foot is unique. Luckily, Skechers makes a lot of different size and width options so nearly everyone should be able to find great shoes that fit them.
When we talk about shoe size, we’re really talking about length. Most shoes available in a medium width are made to fit the average foot of that length – the longer the foot, on average, the wider it is at the wide part of the foot. Shoes tend to mainly be available in the medium width, which for women is a B width, and for men is a D width. Skechers also makes shoes in what we call a “Wide Width” on skechers.com and an “EW” width on the shoe box. For women, the Wide Width or EW option is a D width. For men, the Wide Width or EW width is a 3E width.
Skechers also makes certain shoes in an even wider width for men – the Extra Wide Width, or on the shoe box the abbreviation is EWW. That’s a 5E width. Skechers also makes the Relaxed Fit® collection of shoes, which are made to fit roomier in their medium widths. For the Relaxed Fit® shoes, a women’s medium will fit a medium B width but also a somewhat wider C width. For the men, a Relaxed Fit® medium should fit a medium D width or a slightly wider E width.
You may be thinking that this is a lot of alphabet soup, and you’re right. But those people who want or need a little more room in their shoes know when a shoe fits right, and even those who wear a medium width appreciate the roomy feel of Relaxed Fit® shoes. Because when you feel relaxed and roomy in your shoes, your whole day just seems to go a little bit better.

All of you The Voice fans have something big to cheer about: the show’s Season 5 winner Danielle Bradbery is about to cover the globe as the new face of SKECHERS! The 17-year-old singing sensation is hitting a high note with a Spring 2014 TV and print campaign for BOBS from SKECHERS, the charity footwear line that just passed the six-million-pair donation mark for helping kids in need.
Danielle’s been on a rapid rise: with more iTunes hits than any singer in The Voice history, her Top 20 Country Songs hit The Heart of Dixie in July, a new self-titled debut album and appearances everywhere from Rolling Stone to People’s Ones to Watch party. She’s a perfect inspiration for the BOBS movement and young women everywhere, and we’re so excited to have her as part of the SKECHERS team.
One of the world’s most successful charity footwear brands, the year-round BOBS collection now has two big names behind the line for women, men and kids: Danielle joins celebrity ambassador Dancing with the Stars host Brooke Burke-Charvet, whose huge popularity has driven millions to the collection since its 2011 launch.

Hey SKECHERS Fans, it’s that busy time of year again, with lots of parties, lots of food and hardly any time! This holiday season, I’m all about working out more to balance the decadence of the holiday festivities. Try to knock out your workouts in the morning so you have the rest of your day for family and fun, energized for all the celebrating ahead! I just heard a medical study that Americans put on seven lbs. between Thanksgiving and New Years, and they only take off four lbs. of it in the new year – my goal is to stay fit and defy the odds!
With a hectic work schedule and busy household, it’s not always easy to make time for yourself, let alone the gym. Bring A-List Trainer, Greg Joujon-Roche into the privacy of your own home – let’s do it together this year, you and me. I promise I can change your body.
Do you have a good friend that will hold you accountable for your workouts, but keep you laughing at the same time? Having a workout buddy really helps to keep you on track and stay motivated. It’s great to watch yourself and your loved ones reach their fitness goals.
I know a lot of you are waiting until January 1st to start your new fitness regimen, but who needs New Year’s Resolutions? Let’s start today! Check out my post on my website ModernMom.com called Screw New Year’s Resolutions.
