What Does 4E Mean In Shoes?

4E means extra wide shoes when measuring men’s shoes1. It is one of the three measurements of the width using the letter E. The others are E (wide) and 2E (very wide). The more E there is in width, the wider the shoe will be.

To know if you need 4E shoes, you need to measure your shoe width. Here are some steps you can follow12:

  • Wrap a tape measure around the widest part of your bare foot.
  • Place a foot on the ground as if you were standing normally.
  • Mark the width of your foot in millimetres on the tape measure.
  • Use this measurement to determine the shoe width you need.

You can also use a shoe width chart to compare your measurement with different shoe sizes and widths3. For example, if your foot width is 114 mm and your shoe size is 10, then you need a 4E shoe.
