This article is going to cover the best places to shop for plus size shoes. Especially if you have large feet and a wide width.
Plus Size Shoes For Large Feet
When you wear a size 11 it’s not easy to find cute shoes for big feet. Sometimes I feel like Oprah in The Color Purple. All my life I had to fight to find cute shoes for these large feet. Growing up finding a size 10 was definitely challenging but it could be done. However, after having a baby my feet betrayed me and grew to a size 11. That’s when shoe shopping became arduous. Another ‘big’ issue with finding the right footwear is that sometimes you just fit yourself into whatever you can get your hands on which can cause pretty painful feet issues, luckily there are podiatry services like Victoria Foot & Ankle as well as others, that can help with sorting out the long-term pain and suffering you’re going through, but it is best to find the right shoes for you now, so you don’t suffer down the line.
When I really think about it, you can find cute shoes when you have large feet. The issue is the availability of that size 11, 12, and 13. There have been countless times when I walked into a shoe store and ogled at a shelf of beautiful shoes to find out they dont have my size. And the reason they don’t have my size is because they were only sent one pair of size 11’s and someone bought it already.
It’s an infuriating experience. On the other side it’s a win when I’m the person who got the only size 11. Why do brands do that? Why would they only send one or two pairs of larger shoe sizes? If they’re constantly selling out, wouldn’t that suggest to the buyers to order more of the larger sizes? Do any of you have the answer? If so, please share.
Finding Cute Shoes For Large Feet
Another issue with finding cute shoes for big feet is some of the designs from brands who specialize in shoes for larger feet are just awful. Either they look like an old lady shoe that nobody’s grandmother would wear or they look orthopedic. The shoe designs are bland.
I’ve searched high and low over the years to find retail brands and designers who create modern on-trend plus-size shoes for women with large feet. I’m proud to say thank God I found them. Some of these brands and designers have provided me with the shoe fixes I needed. As a shoe lover, I’m very particular about my shoes. So whenever I find a brand that I like (say, for instance, Chimmy Churry), the first thing I look for is whether it meets all my criteria. I’m a high heel kind of girl and I love colorful, printed, and textured shoes.
That’s why today I’m sharing some of the best places to shop for cute plus size shoes if you wear a size 11-13. Even if you have wide width feet. Some of the brands I’ve shopped and some of the brands are on my list to shop this year. So I wanted to share them with you. You can thank me later.

Hi Alyssa. 6pm.com, Zappo’s outlet, also has shoes in sizes up to 15. The pickings are not as good in the larger sizes, but I always find something cute at a reasonable price. You can filter for size, width, and many other features.
Zappo’s was def my go to when I wore a 10.5…after an increase to size. there are truly no quality, great looking shoes for those of us 11.5+ which is SICK! Designer’s do better, we need shoes and desire cute shoes to show off for you too!
Crystal Demi says
This story is mines! Just imagine if your extra large feet was also extra wide. Whoe is me! These days I’ve just been wearing crocks. Somebody please help me!
Kellie Z says
I agree. I’ve worn grandma shoes since I was 12 because those were the only styles that came in Wide. I also have a long, high instep which makes it hard to find boots that fit too. it’s so aggravating.
Thank you for this! This too is my life story, I wear 11.5 & love to rock a heel!
Well done! What a fabulous collection of shoes. I especially appreciate your wide width consideration.
What a great post! Awesome information! I wear 10.5 – 11 (depending on the designer) so I feel your pain when shoe shopping! Thanks again! All the best from Toronto!
Thank-youuuuu!!! I have larger than average feet and shoes are a nightmare for me. You’ve given me so many new brands to try that I hadn’t heard of. BIG HUGS!!!
Kellie Z says
Thank you for this post. I wear a size 10 WW and it is so hard to find nice shoes. My daughter wears an 11 wide.
I’ve had good luck with Nordstrom over the years; but as you say, they usually sell out quickly in the bigger sizes.

Need a 12/13 dress flat sandal shipped by 6-18
Nope, none of the places in this list hit my size (16 wide) so I guess I’m stuck wearing uncute men’s shoes – which I also have trouble finding a pair in my size (14 wide men’s)
Antoinette Scott says
Thank you for the tips. My sentiments exactly when it comes to walking in the store and only finding one in your size.
I only have luck at Just Fab for boots… the shoe pickings are always thin, if not anorexic for wide sizes, 11 and 12, as I may take either depending on style.
Thank you for the help in finding other places to try.
