How much wider is 2E?
There is approximately a 1/2″ difference between widths (2A, B, D, 2E and 4E) and a 3/8″ difference between 4E and 6E width. This difference occurs across the ball of the foot and is the maximum difference in width. There is less of a width difference as you move toward the tip of the shoe and toward the heel.
