The thing I hate about being tall is having big clunky feet to go along with it. Out of all the troubles I’ve experienced with finding clothes that fit, shoes have by far been the biggest struggle. I wear a size 12 and the majority of the time I need the wide width–try finding that in a shoe store. Believe me, it’s hard. Nearly every mainstream shoe store sells only up to size 10–a few carry 11’s. It’s rare to see anything bigger. If you’re looking for where to find shoes for women with big feet, you’ve come to the right place because I know all about where to find them!
Unfortunately, if you wear larger than a women’s 10, you’ll many times need to do your shoe shopping online.
When looking for above a women’s size 10, you will probably need to use the internet. There are plenty of online shoe shops that offer huge selections of cute trendy shoes in bigger sizes–even up to women’s size 15!
Don’t worry though! It’s OKAY!
Here’s a list of great places that carry extended shoe sizes for women — some of them in up to a size 15! (My top recommendations!)
So I actually discovered that Amazon has a pretty decent selection of shoes for larger feet and the best part about it is there’s lost of options that won’t break the bank. I found lots of stuff between $20-$50! Winter boots, fashion boots, sneakers, sandals – they seem to have it all.
You can also find specialty lines like Amallitalli that sell on Amazon, up to a size 12 (check out here)
Zappos has an amazing selection of shoes for all sizes– in up to a women’s size 15! They even offer width options for most of their shoes ranging from extra narrow to extra wide.
Long Tall Sally (formerly Barefoot Tess)
Barefoot Tess was a specialty shop that has extended sizes for women’s designer and brand name shoes. They used to have their own website, but they’ve teamed up online with Long Tall Sally and appear to only be selling through them now.
They have a nice selection of boots, flats, sandals and more.
They carry mostly casual and dress type shoes, UP TO A SIZE 15!!!!!!
They only carry up to a 13 now! :(
Great selection of all types of shoes in up to a women’s size 13! They carry a few size 14’s as well!
They offer a pretty big selection up to a women’s size 13, have a small selection of 14 and 15.
They have a decent selection. Carries shoes suitable for any occasion up to women’s size 13
Carries up to a size 12!
They actually have a pretty decent selection all the way up to a women’s size 13! They technically have size 14 but I only found 1 option.
Torrid actually has a really cute selection of shoes from 9 – 13W. The nice thing about Torrid is in addition to their website you can actually find these shoes IN store. The only bad thing is the selection isn’t huge (especially in-store) and they only carry wide widths as they’re a specialty plus size shop. They’re still worth a mention though if you are looking for WIDE width shoes. I absolutely love them!
They’re one of the better known shoe stores out there, but I never realized they carried larger sizes for women until I looked on their website (I was so used to just never being able to find the size I needed in store, I don’t think they carry higher than a women’s 11!)
But you can actually find all the way up to a size 13 wide in women’s and they have quite a few options that are on the affordable side.
Payless (RIP PAYLESS!!!) Worth a mention, Payless carries up to women’s size 13. The selection isn’t too bad, but it can be hit or miss. (They actually have really cute stuff right now though!) However they’re probably one of the most cheap shoe sources around, you really can’t beat the price!

Shoe Show Mega
I never knew this place existed but was recommended by a reader – I’m very excited to check it out. They carry sizes all the way up to a 14W for women and actually have a much better selection in the higher sizes than most other shops.
The best part about this place is the shoes are actually affordable – you can score some shoes for between $10 – $40 and they have sales!
See… you don’t have to resort to the men’s shoe section–you can find women’s shoes in extended sizes online!
For the longest time, I simply resorted to the men’s shoe department. (I still am sort of guilty of doing this from time to time). Particularly for athletic style shoes, if I just need a good pair of walking shoes or shoes for the gym, it isn’t a big deal. You can find pretty neutral looking men’s athletic shoes. However it’s nice to wear the cuter girly ones–they help feminize your look. But geeze, they are so hard to find!
Besides, it’s not like you can purchase flats, dressy shoes or any type of feminine style shoe in the men’s section. Having cute shoes is important as it will help pull together your entire look and make you feel more confident in yourself. Trust me, it’s hard to feel sexy and confident when you’re cute outfit is ruined by wearing boy shoes.
I hope the aforementioned list helps a lot of you ladies out in your quest for shoes, I know it certainly would have helped me in the past! :)
