I am buying hiking shoes for an upcoming trip. I wear 12 D. Should I get 12 wide ?

Hey @gjpierce thanks for reaching out!

Finding the correct boot for your feet is a very important part of the equation for having a successful adventure. Congrats on getting started on the right foot (pun intended :))! For the best boot fit possible we recommend scheduling an appointment with a boot fitting expert through our Outfitting Scheduler at your local REI. They will be able to measure your foot and match it to the best boot for you! 12 D is not technically a wide in footwear, but depending on other factors it may be worth exploring that idea. It will depend on your foot and the construction of the boot.

I hope this helps, best of luck on your upcoming trip!

@gjpierce the advice from @REI-JohnJ is great - one small additional piece of information - D width is considered medium width in men's shoes and wide in women's shoes.

John,

Thanks - I took a chance and ordered them. They arrived and fit just right - so I ordered another pair!!

We have a lake house and I'll keep a pair at each place.

@gjpierce So glad to hear that! I wish you many good miles of trail with your new boots!
