We make deliberate choices about the language we use, but most manufacturers typically market clothing and shoes according to gender, so we've listed both women's and men's options below. However, the main differences are size and fit (generally, loose versus tight).
For shoes, specifically, some men's shoes are built to support greater weights. So people with bigger bodies may want to opt for men's versions, whereas people with smaller bodies may prefer women's versions.
Always choose what feels best on your body — regardless of what the label says.
