Intro

A cool shoe selection for the flat and the wide, according to Shauna.

They aren’t all the rave but Pat and Charlie are cute and comfortable. Not to mention, I can wear them forever. Like SZA, I have a thing for dirty shoes.

"I've had a thing for dirty shoes since I was 10..."

                                                         -SZA. Broken Clocks

Pooh– my father–blessed me with very wide and very flat feet. So all day trucking in heels is not a joyful moment and some shoes I just can’t wear–like the Nike Roshe and Air Vapormax. The dreaded leaning shoe is a big fear of mine and I don’t need a “What are those?!” moment. When I shop, I have to constantly remind myself “comfort over cool.”  However, my mini-sneaker collection is doing numbers on the meter. They aren’t all the rave but Pat and Charlie are cute and comfortable. Not to mention, I can wear them forever. Like SZA, I have a thing for dirty shoes. If you have wide feet like me, I think you’ll enjoy this list!

Nike Blazers

Leather over suede. They widen with time.

Vans

"Got My Vans On But They Look Like Sneakers!"

Chuck Taylors

These classics are not made for walking. Insole me please!

Air Jordan 1

Like wine, they get better with time.
