Looking for advice on narrow hiking shoes.

Are there brands of hiking shoes that I can order in narrow for men?

Thanks for reaching out!

While it is technically a boot, we do carry the Lowa Renegade GTX Mid Hiking boots in a narrow width (in the 'Sepia' and 'Deep Black' colors). If you are specifically looking for a shoe, Lowa does make the Renegade GTX Lo hiking shoe in a narrow width. While we do not carry that model at REI, we do offer a special order option that would allow you to order that shoe directly from Lowa. That process can only be done in your local REI store  and is dependent on the vendor for availability, shipping, and processing times.

Hopefully this helps, thanks!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@GET do you know the width of your feet (A, B, C, D)? In general, men's footwear is based on a D width and women's footwear is based on a B, if you measure somewhere between an A-C width and shorter than a US 10.5 length (men's sizing), you could consider some women's shoes/boots in your search as well, as they will typically run more narrow than a men's shoe/boot.

You might also look at shoes/boots from Oboz and Vasque, which are two brands that tend to run narrow but aren't necessarily offered in narrow versions (like @REI-JohnJ's suggestions).

Hope this helps!

Unless Oboz has changed recently, I disagree. I have narrow feet. When I was living in Bozeman, I wanted to support the local company, so I bought a pair. I couldn't get the laces tight enough, and have not considered them since.
