At least, in my case it was. When I saw 'XW - Medium', as the shoe size, I expected a '2D' or possibly an 'E', but never in my wildest dreams did I expect to receive a '3E' !!! I had a quarter inch clearance on each side! My feet are wide, but these are way out of my league! The ad on these is a little tricky. I gave them 3 stars because of construction and appearance. They are a sturdy shoe suitable for walking, except in my case, even with the wider width, the high side cut into my ankle. A bit uncomfortable. These are 'extra wide' alright, but 'True Fit' is out the window!
I was looking for a comfortable shoes that would allow for the supports I need to insert into the shoes, as well as be attractive and feel stable. These shoes fit the cause. They resemble pervious athletic shoes I've had, but can no longer wear because of balance and stability problems, plus the need for wide shoes to accommodate my inserts. I feel comfortable wearing them to all casual outings and at home.
