Hey Loves! Per the usual, this is a topic close to my feet (and heart). I wear a size 12. I’ve talked about this a few times and I’m sure my friends get tired of me lamenting about the struggle that is a girl with large feet. I mean, up until recently, if you wore a size 12 shoe, you were in trouble.
There just wasn’t much out there for us.

It’s not like that anymore. Retailers have started to catch on – thank goodness – and the options for those of us wearing shoe sizes in the double digits is more bountiful than ever. Believe it or not, we’re not the only ones who have trouble. A few men in my life who have large feet often lament the same woes.
Not to mention, when you do find a shoe that you love, sometimes it can be a bit pricey. I’ve flipped over shoes and seen the $150 and above price tag and been a little bit upset.

I wanted to feature a few flats that are awesome as well as talk about a few of the places you can order from when you have larger feet. Don’t hate me because I’m peeping you to the game… let’s look at some gorgeous flats!

So let me also give you a few pointers of where to shop:
- Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack – They are known for their catering to those of us with large (or small) feet. With designer labels, shoes made for every day wear as well as a wonderful selection of sandals, I consistently rely on them. Every year, they hold an “Over and Under” sale for those who wear over a size 10 and under a size 5. Not to mention, if you’re willing to shop outside of the season, then Nordstrom Rack is nirvana.
- Barefoot Tess – With a retail shop located in Baltimore (if you’re in the area you should definitely check them out) I have a special love for them. They offer amazing flats and reasonable prices. They also have introduced me to a few new lines of shoes and sandals that I may have never known about. The wonderful folks over there also offer regular sales deals. Check them out.
- Payless – don’t sleep on Payless – ever. I have bought a few pairs of sandals over the last few years from them. Each time, I would get consistent compliments on the sandals and flats. One of my favorite personalities and designers Christian Siriano and other designers have been creating fun, cute and affordable shoes. Not to mention, no matter where you are in the US, there is always a Payless close.
- Shoes of Prey. Two words: CUSTOM SHOES. Need I say more? Marie recently wrote a great post – check it out. I’m pressed to order a pair (or five) and try them out.
- Zappos – No explanation needed. Check it for yourself. Variety, large range of sizes and reasonable prices makes them a winner any day.
- Nine West – They carry through a size 12. Sometimes they are available in store as well.
An extra tip and pointer as to where to shop? NOT a flat, but still pretty fly… Check out the newest designer to fashion heels UP TO A 15, Jewel High Shoes!
The sisterhood of the large and wide feet must stick together…..
So this begs the question – where do you shop for large size shoes? I need to know! Am I missing out?
I love all the shoes. I just bought some flats from Payless a few months ago. They were 7 1/2 W. They are so comfortable.
All the shoes you have listed are between pretty and gorgeous.
I like onestopplus.com because they ALWAYS have a 7 1/2 W. I buy some of their stuff on the cheaper side but I can tell you that the J. Renee stuff is fabulous and you can ALWAYS get 50% off coupon codes. Not to mention using Ebates. I love this shoe. I bought it in black and can’t wait to have an occasion to wear it:
Ohhhh yes! I almost forgot! LOL
I also have size 12 feet, I LOVE Shoes of Prey and have ordered quit a number of them. The very first pair didn’t quite fit right, but when I notified them of the issue they were able to get me a new pair made and sent. They are a great company and they just lowered the prices, even better. 🙂
NICE!!! I have to order me a pair from them…
I have a HUGE (emphasis on the HUUUUUUUUUUGE) wardrobe of size 12 Payless shoes. If not for them, I’d have been relegated to a minuscule selection of grandma styles or just men’s shoes in the past. It’s only been in the last ten or so years that the shoe industry has started to realize that women who have large feet actually might have some sense of style (I still think that it’s in large part due to the demands of the transgender/cross-dresser demographic) beyond the CFM heels previously available. Their prices made it possible for this former working single mother to indulge on occasion. And then once the kids were older & gone, I could go crazy, so to speak.
I also have a large selection from ALONAI.COM. Mostly boots, but a few shoes as well. I’ve NEVER worn a pair without getting complimented by friends & strangers or asked where I got them from. They specialize in smaller sizes starting from size 2 and go all the way to size 15. The larger sizes tend to be wide. Granted there are some style differences between the very small & very large sizes. Mainly heel height & the larger sizes tend to be wide. Mostly fabric or “faux” they do have some real leathers as well. Regular pric es generally range between 29.99 and slightly over 100.00 for the real leather ones. But there is always some kind of sale going, not to mention their outlet department. The best thing about about this company are the fantastic end of season/discontinued style sales they have. With shoes going for as little as $5 and boots as low as $10 I load up. This last sale I got a 9 pair variety for less than $70 all shipped together for a $10 flat shipping fee.
NICE than kyou for sharing… I will have to check out ALONAI too!
I wear 11/12 as well and I get 80% of my shoes from 6pm.com where I always find a huge variety of shoe styles/brands and I also have a nice collection from payless. 😉
Ooohhh thanks for the tips!!!
I actually wrote a post about this not long ago because I also wear a size 11 sometimes 12. Overstock.co , Amazon, Ebay and Drag queens stores are good places to check out.
