Stylish Shoes For Women With Big Feet Do Exist

25 places to find wide width shoes

I can’t really remember a time in my life when I wasn’t frustrated with having big feet. The struggles for those of us who happen to have feet size 10 and up seem to be endless. From barely squeezing your feet through the opening of skinny jeans to finding a pair of comfortable shoes — or better yet, a pair of cute shoes in your size. Growing up, I wore a size 10 in women’s shoes by the third grade. In middle school, I learned to avoid the women’s section and head straight to the men’s when shopping for gym shoes.  They definitely fit better but I couldn’t help but notice all the bold and bright color choices are replaced with dark and rugged options in the men’s department. By high school, I started to rely on Payless for feminine flats and prom shoes. During college, I basically lived in flip-flops and gyms shoes but once I entered the working world, I needed shoes appropriate for the office.

Thankfully, Nordstrom, Zappos, and Nine West came to the rescue with brands that carry shoes above size 10 and wide widths. Fortunately, there are also a number of companies that pride themselves on catering to women with extended-size feet almost exclusively — which also means they take great care in offering a stylish selection. Here’s a list of companies that help women with big feet step out in style:

1. DSW (up to 15 wide)

      Unfortunately, the fashion industry caters to the average so everyone on the small and large side of the equation have to work SUPER HARD to find cute and comfy shoes. At least we have Google, I can’t imagine dealing with this pre-internet.


  10. Great list! I like to get shoes/clothes from Torrid, and I got really cute knee high boots from Avenue. I just can’t wear the wide width shoes that are slip on and don’t have straps or anything to keep them on lol.

      I’m a big fan of Torrid too, only place with a dressing room that doesn’t make me feel even fatter. I find that using the shoe chart and reading the reviews help me make better purchases and less returns.

      1. I agree with you on all of that! Torrid jeans are my favorite too. Though I finally tried a pair from Maurices and they’re really comfortable too.
