I tend to be more of flats girl myself, but some days you just want to go tall and that’s where a pair of wide width heels come in. Whether you’re like me and you need something shorter or you want to go tall, there is something for you.

We’re breaking down the different type of heels that you can get your hands on so that you can make the perfect outfit for your next job interview, night out on the town, or steal the show as a classy wedding guest.

Wide width kitten heels

If you’re a heel newbie or just not talented walking on high heels (guilty), then a pair of kitten heels are your absolute best friend. While you get all of the glamour of a heel, you also get the safety of staying closer to the ground.

Kitten heels are typically between 3.5 cm (1.5 inches) and 4.75 cm (1.75 inches) and resemble their taller counterpart the stiletto heel. They’re great if you’re looking for that formal heel but you’re not comfortable teetering a few inches in the air.

Clarks Linvale Jerica wide width kitten heels

Clarks make a stellar wide width shoe and their Jerica kitten pump is no exception. It’s a classic black heel that sits low to the ground, perfect for work, a backyard wedding, or a night on the town.

The heel measures 2.2 inches, meaning you won’t topple over when you’re trying to get from A to B. And those who wear these bad boys think it’s easy to walk and perfect for your next job interview!

Touch Ups Jane ankle-strap sandal

While the Touch Ups Jane sandal doesn’t have a traditional stiletto style, I’m going to count it because you still see the dramatic curvature even though it’s not rail-thin.

This cute pair of wide width heels is perfect for summer. It’s a strappy sandal with a low comfortable heel that you can wear with a pair of jeans or a fancy dress.

Trotters Kiera kitten pump

For some reason, nude is my current favourite colour when it comes to heels and the Trotters Kiera pump does it so well. It’s got contour fit, arch support, and flexibility, making it comfy to wear all day long.

The lining is a soft Nappa leather with a foam bedding, so you won’t get any sore feet with these bad boys. Wearers say that these are a good, solid shoe that does exactly what it’s supposed to.

Wide width tall heel

If you’re looking for wide width heels that are a tad bit more dramatic, you might consider going with a taller heel. Luckily, it’s not just short little numbers that come in wide width sizes.

Your taller heels can be anything over the 1.75 inches that you’d find in a kitten heel. They give you a little extra height and some more oomph, if you can master walking in them (sadly, I cannot).

LifeStride Suki woman’s wide width tall heels

If you’re looking for a daring red heel that you can wear with your cute little black dress, then check out the LifeStride Suki pump. This fashionable little number has a bit of strappy action going on, so it’ll work splendidly for the summer.

The heels on this bad boy are approximately 2.75-inches, so you’ll be standing tall and looking great. Plus, if you don’t love the red, you can get it in four other fashionable colours.

LifeStride Saldana wide width pump

The LifeStride Saldana pumps are not only wide width heels, but also incredibly fashionable. With its classy heeled look with an open middle, this shoe is perfect for warmer weather.

The heels on this bad boy measure approximately 2.75 inches, giving you good height but not too much that you feel like you’re going to topple over. Plus if you don’t love the navy pattern I have pictured, it comes in 12 other colours.

Naturalizer Celina wide width tall heels

If you’re looking for something a little more daring with a little more shine, check out the Naturalizer Celina Pump. This little number has a 3.25-inch heel, so you’ll look like a Queen next to your six-foot-something partner.

These shoes are lightweight, even though the sole looks a little clunky. The footbed is breathable and it has a perfectly proportioned platform. It comes in five other colours if you don’t love the black patent.

Wide with heeled sandals

Summer is here, which means if you want to give your heel game a little bit of a warm weather pick-me up, a pair of wide width heeled sandals might just be for you.

These are basically fashionable sandals with cute straps and a heel to boot. They’ll look good whether you’re doing a swimsuit fashion photo shoot or you’re going out for dinner with that hottie from down the hall.

LifeStride Charlotte heeled sandal

If you’re looking for strappy, cute, and totally fashionable, check out the LifeStride Charlotte heeled wide with sandals. They have a soft system comfort package that helps to provide all-day support, cushioning, and flexibility.

Wearers of these bad boys say that they are super cute and the heel is sturdy, but occasionally the bottom strap feels tight. Plus the straps are elastic, so they won’t fall down while you walk.

Naturalizer Pressley platform dress sandal

The Naturalizer Pressley wide width platform dress sandals are a great choice if you’re looking for something that’s 100 percent leather. They have a 3 and 3/4 inch heel with a 3/4 inch platform, so you’ll get all the height you deserve!

Wearers say that these shoes are great for dressing up or down. They fit true-to-size, are really comfortable and you can wear them all night long. Plus, there are four other colours to choose from.

Wide width wedge pump

Wedge pumps are a great choice for those of us that are looking for a tad bit more stability in our heeled shoes. They’ve got the classic pump look with a wedge heel, so there’s less tetering.

These aren’t quite as classic as a pair of standard thin-heeled pumps, but they can be a great choice if you’re looking to be a little more sturdy at your next professional gig.

Naturalizer Olivia Wedge Pump

Naturalizer makes killer wide width heels, and if you’re looking for a web pump their Olivia style is a top choice. They have a 3-inch heel with a 0.5-inch platform.

Ladies who have these share that they’re one of their favourite pairs of shoes. They look great, are super comfy and are perfect to wear all day long. Plus, you can get them in three fashionable colours.

Clarks Flores Tulip wide width wedge

A pair of these Clarks Flores Tulip wedge is perfect for your next business trip. They’re 100% leather with a rubber sole and a heel that measures around 2 inches, perfect to give you a little height but not too much!

I read a review for these bad boys by a flight attendant who said they absolutely loved their orthopedic footbed, but you do have to make sure to get the right size or the tips might squeeze your toes.

Wide width slingback pump

Your final choice for heel that we’re going to talk about today is the slingback pump. These have a really classy dated look to them that I really like.

The sling back has a classic pump-style tip with a single strap in the back. They can come with a cute kitten heel or a more bold stiletto height, depending on what you’re looking for.

Naturalizer Charlee Pumps

If you want a great summer-looking heel, then the Naturalizer Charlee wide width pumps are perfect for you. They’re made of a suede or leather upper (depending on the colour that you pick), have a pointed toe, and the classic slingback strap.

These bad boys have a heel around 2-inches. The footbed has contour technology to make sure that your foot feels cushioned and comfortable all day long.

Naturalizer Banks wide width pump

The Naturalizer Banks pump is a super cute shoe with a smaller kitten heel that will go perfectly with a cute shirt or a stylish pair of jeans. They have a breathable lining and flexible sole, allowing you to walk with confidence.

You’ll love the extra cushioning that these shoes have, providing you with comfort for a prolonged period of time. These come in 11 super cute colours, include a really awesome yellow if you don’t love the gunmetal we’ve got pictured.
