Wide Toe Box Shoe Reviews

On an ongoing basis we review shoes that align with our mission and values in an effort to guide our customers to the best Correct Toes compatible footwear that is available. We judge the shoes based on how wide their toe box is, how flat the footbed is, the amount that the shoe is allowed to flex with your foot as you step, and the ability to sense the ground through the sole.

Barebarics I Revive | Natural Foot Approved

The Revive from Barebarics (partners of Be Lenka) is an excellent example of designing healthy and functional footwear with modern fashion trends. The toe box is generous and won’t cause or worsen bunions, but still felt a little snug when worn with unmodified Correct Toes inside. With the 5th toe spacer trimmed in halt Correct Toes fit much better. This zero-drop sneaker has no heel elevation or toe spring, so your feet stay flat on the ground. \

The Revive is also super flexible in all directions, and the 4 mm outsole allows for great proprioception and ground feel. Sustainable and vegan materials with perfect color stability, breathability and tear resistance were used in the production this shoe.

escalanate racer

Altra I Escalante Racer | Correct Toes Approved

Just like the Escalante, but a little bit thinner and a little bit lighter. The Escalante Racer has a foot-shaped toe box wide enough to fit Correct Toes for most feet. The sole is flat with a slightly beveled toe spring but is zero-drop, so there’s no heel elevation. Compared to most cushioned road running shoes, the Escalante Racer is pretty flexible in all directions. The 22 mm stack height of the Escalante Racer is 2 mm less than the Escalante but is still pretty substantial compared to other shoes in the natural footwear realm. And cushioning will obviously dampen sensory perception and proprioception compared to something more firm.

The lightweight Escalante Racer (6.8 oz) also has a super breathable mesh upper, while the regular Escalante (9.5 oz) comes with a more robust sock-like engineered knit upper. The Escalante Racer probably has the lowest stack height and is the most lightweight and flexible of the current Altra footwear.

This shoe features no toe spring or heel elevation and the 6 mm zero-drop Vibram outsole is incredibly flexible, allowing for uninhibited natural motion of the foot and incredible sensory feedback. The super soft Nubuck leather is so lightweight, you’ll hardly notice them on your feet.
