Hey curvy girls all over the world,
Ever since the birth of my son five years ago, my feet have never been the same. As a teenager, I wavered between a size 9 and 9.5 in shoes. When my little love love made his official world debut five years ago, my feet jumped to a bonafide 10. Now shopping for a size 10 shoe is nothing to really cry about. Countless retailers and shoe brands carry a size 10 and I’ve always been able to snag my size. However, this year proves to be a bit difficult to shoe shop for me because I am no longer a size 10. I am now wavering between a 10.5 and a size 11.
Being the self proclaimed shopaholic I am, I had to go on a hunt to find places to accommodate my size 10.5-11 foot. To be honest, its harder to find half sizes than it is to find whole sizes. I found I was more frustrated looking for a size 10.5 than a size 11. I can only imagine the trouble my fellow large footed sister who wear wear a size 12 or larger go through.
To help make things a little easier, I have listed some of the best places to shop online/ in-store for a size 11 and beyond.
I hope it helps and if I missed any, please do share by leaving a comment.
