Fit Hacks For High Volume Feet?

If you have high volume feet and your shoes are too tight over the top of your foot but fit everywhere else you can try a few things:

  • Size up – Depending on the shoe you may be able to size up for more vertical space and still get a good fit. This is most likely to work if your foot volume is predominantly in the instep.
  • Stretch the shoe by strategically stuffing it and waving a hairdryer to warm up the material.
  • Stretch the shoe with a wooden stretcher.

  1. If your shoes have laces your foot is high volume in the arch/midfoot, you can also skip the lacing in that section or run the laces on the same side (instead of crossing the laces over the foot) for the section that’s tight. Youtube has some good videos for this.

  2. I’m not sure if my son has high volume or super wide or both. I can’t find any shoes to fit him. Any suggestions? small size needed. about size 12. age 5.

    1. Hm, Foot Buddy would be a good one to check out. They stop at size 12, so won’t fit him much longer. Also Mukishoes would be a good one and Magical shoes.
