This material only really applies to guys who need size 15 socks or any other size that might go by the term “extra large socks.” That being said, it will also cover some general benefits of socks, so if you’ve ever been wondering if you really need socks at all, keep on reading.
Wearing shoes in extra-large sizes or extra wide widths can be a pain for a whole bunch of reasons but we’ll stay pretty basic. We know that it can be tough to find shoes that fit the size of your foot and the width too. Especially with really wide widths like size 4E wide shoes, it can be tough to find shoes, boots and slippers that fit. The good news is that you’re in the right place to find the shoes and boots in that width.
Wearing size 14 men’s shoes puts you in something of an uncomfortable position. Size 14 men’s shoes are sort of right on the edge of what’s considered to be ‘too large to stock’ by most retailers. As a result, you might have just as much trouble finding boots, shoes, socks and other footwear as guys with much larger feet. If you wear a guys size 14, you might as well wear a size 21.
If you need size 17 men's shoes, you probably won’t be surprising anyone if you let out the secret that it’s pretty tough to find shoes that fit you. Even we here at XL Feet wouldn’t be surprised if you were to let it out of the bag that you couldn’t find any styles you liked, even when you happened up a pair of size 17 men's shoes that actually did fit you.
Here at XL Feet, we make it easy for guys with extra-large feet to find the footwear they need. That doesn’t just apply to shoes and boots, but to anything else you could need in footwear to stay cushioned, supported, and comfortable. That extends to socks and slippers as well.
Sometimes, you use things that get the job done just well enough. Sometimes, you need an umbrella but you just button your coat up a little bit tighter and tuck your chin down into your collar. Sometimes you need a spade but all you have is a scoop, so you just end up using the corners of the scoop to dig on in. And sometimes, good enough is good enough. Cutting corners should never be the aim of any project of yours, but when you absolutely need to cut corners, you may as well do it with an uncommon measure of spit-shine and elbow grease.
If you need extra wide men’s shoes, it’s rarely more noticeable than when you actually need workboots to support you and protect your feet. Whether you rely on the protection of a faithful pair of workboots every day on the job or you only periodically break out a pair of boots for yard work, a proper fit is critical. While a proper fit is important to preventing injury, an improper fit can actually be the cause of it. Here are some things to consider.
Hiking is one of the best ways to get back in touch with nature and spend a day really being present in the outdoors. It’s not just for the warmer months, either as some of the best days for spending outdoors are in the winter, where the activity will keep you warm. Few things are more enjoyable than the sights and solitude of a long hike - although hiking with buddies is a great way to get out there too.
