What’s up guys and girls, I’m here to help you. Are you like me and have a difficult time fitting into a lot of the modern football boots? Sounds familiar? I’m sure you’ll enjoy the top 5 list of the best boots currently on the market for people like you and me with wide feet. Let’s talk more about the differences between the pairs so you can decide which one of them is the best soccer cleats for wide feet.
Quick comparison of the Best Soccer Cleats for Wide Feet
Let’s get started with your dad’s favorite football boots – Adidas Copa Mundial. A classic pair with an insanely soft, flexible and most importantly a very accommodating kangaroo leather upper. Perfect for people with wide feet. Seriously with Adidas Copa Mundial I dare you to go down a full size and I promise you will still match the shape of your wide feet.
When it comes to the ball touch the Copa Mundial is exactly what you would expect from such a no-nonsense leather boot. It is elegant, it is soft and it is plushy. They are so far down on this list due to the lack of any modern features. No fancy soleplates and a little lack of stability when you’re moving sideways on the pitch. But pure wideness wise you can’t go wrong with the Copa Mundial.
- Very accommodating kangaroo leather upper
- Fits even widest feet
- No modern features
Number 4 on the list is the Nike Magista Obra II. Which is probably the widest of the current Nike models out there on the market. This boot comes with a dynamic fit collar and this fancy 3d structured Flyknit upper assault plate. That is made to improve your ability to turn on the pitch. Now the coolest thing in my opinion about Obra II is indeed the upper. These little bumps gives you that soft and dampen touch on the ball with a lot of friction as well. Also the good news for guys like you and me is that the feet is indeed very accommodating for wide-footed players. Especially around the toe box area and thanks to the dynamic fit collar you get that sock like sensation if that’s what you’re looking for.
If you’re not into the high cut game at all the so-called little brother of the Obra the Nike Magista Opus 2 is also a brilliant choice for you. Instead of the Flyknit on the Obra 2, Opus 2 comes with a super soft synthetic upper which will stretch a lot. If you give it some time and love on the football pitch. Nike Magista just deserves to be on this list.
- Flyknit upper increases friction with the ball
- Dynamic fit collar
- Wide toe box
- Difficult to air-out after play
Number 3 on the best soccer cleats for wide feet list is Adidas X16 + PureChaos. It is made for the Game Changer. These cleats are built with this interesting two-piece upper system with a knitted sock underneath and the soft synthetic material on top. This combination is magical for wide-footed players. The upper is sensationally soft. A perfect match for anybody with a wider foot and since the laces are hidden underneath little lace cover, you do get a much bigger striking surface with less distractions and a whole lot of grip thanks for the texture on the upper. So if you’re worried about laces being on your way perhaps the PureChaos is something you want to look into.
Also I really have to mention the sock. Which in my opinion is of the perfect height and I do prefer it over the higher model on the Obra 2 for example. Long story short this is a wonderful choice for anybody with a wide foot and I could play a game in these any day.
- Two-piece upper system
- Covered laces
- TechFit Collar
- Snug fit through the midfoot and ankle
Number 2 goes to the Puma evoTOUCH. These cleats have kangaroo leather upper. And underneath the leather Puma has used their evo sock construction to give you that barefoot like feeling when lacing up in the evoTOUCH. The toe box area is probably the widest on the market. It’s ridiculously wide and straight out of the box the upper is so thin and flexible that you can basically break these boots just by flexing the upper for a couple of minutes. It’s all about that barefoot like feeling – expect to be super close to the ball with every single touch when rocking the evoTOUCH. You can’t go wrong with the Puma evoTouch. The toe box is so wide that you have my word they will mold to your wide feet.
- Evo Sock construction
- Really wide toe box
- Easy and fast break in
- Heel can cause blisters
At number 1 is The Puma evoPOWER Vigor 1. Ever since the launch of the original Puma evoPOWER throughout the generations the family has always been wide. And Vigor 1 is a little bit more anatomical than the evoPOWER of the past. Thanks to the new and updated upper material this boot will accommodate the widest foot in existence among you. These cleats have the softest synthetic material I have ever seen or felt on a pair of soccer cleats.
By only trying these on I can feel and tell you how sensational the feet is going to be. And the main difference between the Vigor and the Puma EvoTOUCH for example is that while both boots will give you that barefoot like feeling, the ball touch with the Vigor 1 is slightly more dampened and patted thanks to the Accufoam pads on the upper. That’s my number one Puma – evoPOWER Vigor 1 – brilliant pair of soccer cleats. And this concludes my Top 5 list of the best soccer boots for wide feet.
- Accufoam upper improves ball control
- Widest on the market
- Easy and fast break in
- Little loose ankle collar
Best Soccer Cleats for Wide Feet Comparison
How to check if I have wide feet?
Everybody has differently shaped feet. It is probably one of the most varied body parts that we have. So it’s really up to you to figure out what shape your feet actually are. The best way to know if you have wide feet is to ask yourself a question – Do you regularly have trouble fitting into shoes? Not just soccer shoes but regular shoes in general. If you’re buying shoes and you fit into them perfectly every single time. You do not have wide feet. If you find yourself not fitting into regular shoes. Driving to specialty shoe stores to buy double or triple pairs of wide shoes then that’s generally a good sign that you actually do have wide feet.
Widest foot point?
One other thing to take note of is where is your foot at its widest point? A wide mid-foot generally restricts what shoes are you going to fit in more than for example of wide heel will. Wide heel doesn’t mean all that much but if you have a really wide mid-foot or a really wide forefoot that changes up your options as far as soccer cleats go.
Another thing to take note is are you flat-footed? If you do have flat feet generally you are going to have a little bit wider feet. Personally I would say semi flat feet or slightly flat-footed but not too wide. And other than that go with regular foot size.
Proper cleat size?
One of the major things when it comes to getting the proper fit out of your soccer shoe or determine whether or not you have a wide feet is – a lot of people don’t actually realize what size they need and how their soccer shoes should fit. I’ve made a separate guide on this here. Really go check it out if you don’t know how your soccer shoes should fit.
A lot of people are wearing their shoes way too big and that’s why they’re not able to get a good fit out of their shoes. One major rule that you need to live by when you’re buying soccer shoes is – Don’t force your foot into a shoe that doesn’t fit. It’s very important to buy cleats that fits you properly if you’re for example a size 9 us and pretty much every cleat you try fits perfectly in the length but it’s too narrow for you. You should absolutely not go half a size up and just say – okay now the width is okay but the cleats little bit too long. That’s not acceptable. If you don’t fit in your regular size you should never size up into a soccer shoe. Instead pick a different model that fits you properly in your proper shoe size.
I hope I have answered your question. You really need to determine for yourself whether or not you have wide feet. It’s not a question that I can answer for you and like I said go ahead and check out our guide. Figure out how your shoe should fit. Because a lot of people are wearing their shoes way too big and that’s just not right. It kind of defeats the purpose of buying high-end cleats because you’re paying more for a better-fitting soccer shoes. So, if they’re not fitting perfectly, you’re not getting the right size, you are not getting your money’s worth. And if you already know that your feet is wide, go up and pick one of our top 5 best soccer cleats for wide feet.
