Have you ever hiked in the wrong pair of shoes? It’s a terrible feeling: your toes compressed into a narrow cap, your ankle rubbing uncomfortably against tight fabric. But, the right pair of shoes—they feel like heaven, like walking on air, on clouds of candy-floss. Our Extra Wide Hiking Boots are fitted specifically for outdoor activity. They are the perfect companion for the rugged outdoorsman, whose love of crisp air and rushing rivers compels him to climb slopes both steep and gentle.
Going for a hike can be a truly relaxing outdoor activity that helps you to become one with nature and reduce the stress of the busy everyday world. One of the best parts of going on a hike is that you can go at any time. If you can find a good trail that you can easily navigate and that provides the scenic views that make hiking so relaxing and it is close and easy to access, you can easily go for a hike at any time.
That said, hiking requires comfort. You won’t get far if the shoes you wear aren’t build for the task of climbing over rocks or logs or for inclines and declines you can face on a hiking trail. The selection of hiking shoes can get a little thin and feel like they are built for one type of foot. But not everyone has the same feet in size or width. So why should you have to constantly hunt to find shoes that fit you and keep you comfortable?
Big feet need love, care, and comfort too. Foot care is critical and often overlooked. We spend a lot of time on our feet, and so we need to tend to them. At XL Feet, we want to empower you to care more about your foot care routine. We have compiled five foot care tips you need to know.
If you have ever been on a hiking adventure with the wrong type of shoe, then you know it’s an experience you would never want to encounter again. But if it’s your first time going for an outdoor adventure, take it from the experts: get a shoe that’s suited for the specific outdoor activity!
With XL Feet, you always end up with the proper fitting shoe, but we also want to make sure you get the style you are looking for. Many shoe styles are made from historic designs with modifications to make them more up to date. We want to introduce you to 3 designs you can find in our shop.
When it comes to foot size, things can get kind of controversial. We know from experience that individuals with bigger feet sizes have had to endure a lot teasing in their lifetime or have had trouble finding their shoe size in store, but what if you have bigger feet AND they’re wide? This is a dilemma for a good number of shoe wearers, and it can be very discouraging when shopping time comes around.
Having rather large feet is neither a gift, nor a curse. If you have a larger than “average” shoe size, it may feel as if your foot size is a curse. Not true.
Did you now that large feet can aid you during swimming? The larger the foot, the more motion you get in the pool. Some of the top Olympic swimmers are known to have pretty big feet. It’s like having your own built-in pair of flippers!
