Where To Buy Larger Shoes For Women

Fat Mum Slim /

If you’ve ever asked, where on earth can I buy larger shoes for women? This blog post is for you.

Where To Buy Larger Shoes For Women, cos the struggle is real {it is!}

When I was created, everything about me was created on the bigger side, including my feet. Growing up it was torturous not being able to buy shoes for my size 11 feet. I’d have to resort to men’s shoes, and that’s not really that cool when you’re a teenager. I can remember seeing one pair of women’s shoes that I REALLY liked, and I squeezed myself into a 9.5 and painfully paid for it. Anything for fashion.

Thankfully, now there are more options for us larger feeted ladies, and I am so grateful. SO GRATEFUL. Today I’m sharing those stores, most of which I’ve tried. Your feet can thank me later.

WHERE TO BUY LARGER SHOES FOR WOMEN

BARED FOOTWEAR | UP TO SIZE 43
You are going to love this store, because I am totally in lust with them. They do beautiful, on trend designs and their Instagram feed is drool-worthy. I have three pairs, and I think they’re worth the investment.

FRANKIE4 | UP TO SIZE 13
Hello my new friend Frankie4! This is one of my new favourite brands because the shoes are just beautifully made, and so comfortable. The footbed inside the shoes is created by a podiatrist and physiotherapist, so that you’re doing the right thing by your feet. I have the NAT white shoes, and they’re amazing, and so are these delicious ASHLEY boots {and I seriously don’t like wearing heels, but these don’t feel like I am}.

SHOES OF PREY | UP TO SIZE 15
Shoes Of Prey is a great Australian success story, and I think I must have bought my first pair around 5 years ago. You can totally custom-create a pair of shoes to suit you, or buy straight from their creations. They do super beautiful shoes.

TARGET AUSTRALIA | UP TO SIZE 11
Although back when I was younger their range was much smaller, Target’s shoes and extended sizes got me through my early 20s. They have great prices and almost every shoe goes up to a size 11.

TORRID | UP TO 11.5
Torrid was one of the first stores that I discovered who did larger sizes for women’s shoes, and I was so excited… especially because they do heels, wedges and other fun styles. Of course, if you’re in Australia there’s postage to take into consideration.

TAKING SHAPE | UP TO SIZE 42
This is a plus-size clothing store in Australia who also happens to make a pretty cool shoe range as well. Bonus! Their styles are more on the classic side, with a touch of fun thrown in.

JFAHRI | UP TO SIZE 43
Forget big boring shoes, how great are the colours and styles this shop does? I am loving the bright aqua boots, and the other colours they have as well. At this stage they seem to mostly do boots, but I hope they start doing other brightly coloured styles too.

WILLOW SHOES | UP TO SIZE 13
While some people might need bigger sizes for the length AND the width, Wilow Shoes specialises in longer shoes – which I love because my feet are just long. They got some stylish designs, and they ship worldwide.

NORDSTROM | UP TO SIZE 14
I love this place. I know for us Aussies buying from the States can be a little expensive, but they do have a discount store that we can try to save a few more dollars, Nordstrom Rack. In Waikiki, Hawaii they opened up a Nordstrom Rack store last year and I stocked up last time I was there. I was in shoe heaven!

SOLE SEARCHING | UP TO SIZE 14
This store specialises in bigger sizes, size 10 to 14 to be precise, and nothing else… so they totally get bigger feet and catering to them. I found their prices to be a bit more reasonable compared to others as well.

    My foot isn’t large as much as it is wide and I find a lot of stores here in the U.S. do not keep a large supply (if any) of wide sizes in stock. I usually have had success ordering from ShoeBuy, Shoes.com, Zappos, J.C. Penney, Clarks, Overstock, Easy Spirit, and Nordstrom’s (as you mentioned above).

    Thanks for the list Telle. I have big WIDE feet. My hubby has size 15 feet so our kids have no chance. Raya is 9 and already wearing a woman’s size 7 from Target. I just get so nervous about buying shoes online because in store is hard enough the thought of having to return all the ones that don’t fit does my head in.

      It’s not so bad, really. A lot of the retailers have free shipping on returns, and some stores like Nordstrom’s will take their items back at the store, and their customer service is really good. Plus, once you get used to a retailer, you get a good feel for which of their shoes will be a good fit for you.
