Many of you have mentioned that you need shoes to accommodate wide feet and/or bunions. While I’ve never experienced bunions, friends of mine who have tell me they can be quite painful and make walking for long periods difficult.
Shoes for wide feet and bunions
So when the nice people at Sole Bliss contacted me and offered me some of their shoes to try, I thought this might be a brand you’d want to know about. I checked out their US website, and thought their sneakers looked really cute. (Plus they have a side zip for easy on and off, one of my very favorite features!)

Sole Bliss Sneakers
These sneakers (gifted) are available in several colors and finishes. They run about a full size large. I’m usually a size 38 in European sizing, but found the 37 was a better fit. They’re plenty roomy in the toe box but don’t look any wider from the outside than my other favorite sneaker styles.
They aren’t stiff, but aren’t super “bendy” either. The insole is well padded, and there’s some light arch support. Yes, they are very comfortable, and after wearing for several hours, felt like they had molded to my feet.
The color is a darkish metallic bronze, which IMO is a great neutral! And it comes with a pair of sparkly laces too.

Not just sneakers
Sole Bliss also offers several other types of footwear including dressier styles. Fans include the Duchess of Cornwall and Helen Mirren. (In fact, after articles appeared in the UK press recently about DoC buying several pairs, there was a “run” on the sneakers! They will be restocked soon.)
