Asics® Narrow Fit Shoes

The most comfortable shoe is a shoe that fits properly and comfortably without being too loose or too tight.

When you have a more narrow foot type, most shoe brands will fit quite loose, becoming irritational. Asics luckily has many of their ranges and models in Narrow fit size options.

Finding The Best Fit for Narrow Feet

To find the best fit for a more narrow foot type, you need to consider the width and length of the shoe.

Asics, in general, offer a more narrow to medium fit, so individuals with a Narrow or regular foot shape will gain much from the brand. However, they also have wide and extra wide width options in almost all their footwear models and ranges.

Choosing the Right Asics Narrow Fit Shoe

There are a few things one should consider before making an informed decision about the Right Narrow Fitting shoe,

  • Socks – The socks you wear with your shoes take up some space, particularly if you wear thick socks, so always consider this and fit shoes with their intended socks.
  • Weight – Depending on the use of the shoe, for walking and running, lighter weight si always more acceptable. Though if you need more stability and control, a heavier shoe is always a better option.
  • Width – Asics shoes are available in different width opti9ons, though sics tends to run more towards the Narrow side. Make sure that you, in fact, need a Narrow option, and not just maybe a medium. Toe room should be ample, and the fit should never squeeze your feet or slip around.
  • Length – Always have a little extra room at the top of the toe area, particularly in a running shoe or walking shoe, so that you can fully extend your toes in the shoe.
  • Intended Use – Lastly, the use for which the shoe is intended will also determine the type and fit. A more snug fit is required for running, whereas, for casual everyday wear or even walking, you can have a more relaxed fit.
