    They're about the same. The mens may be wider though.

    the woman's shoe is a little smaller in length. in US shoe size a men's 7 is the same length as a women's 9 but women's shoes tend to be slightly narrower than men's shoes & the arch support in the men's shoes tend to be more towards the toe while the women's arch supports tend to be back towards the heel.

    Source(s): have to wear a men's 8 workboot for work when I can't find a women's 10. I need inserts & thicker socks when I wear the men's shoe if I want it to fit right.
