What is the difference in size with wide shoes compared to regular shoes? Although there are established metrics to determine length and width in shoes, the biggest difference you will notice is the girth around the ball joint (the widest part of the foot), which is what gives you a “roomy” fit. Here at Hitchcock Shoes, we grade the width of our women’s wide shoes from 2E (ee) width to 6E and even up to 8E. We have our own exclusive Hitchcock Wide Shoe Closet line of 6E ladies shoes, and we also carry 6E wide width shoes for women from EasyB of England. Our collection of women’s 6E wide shoes include, boots, dress shoes, booties, flats, pumps, loafers, casuals and slippers too.
