You know, I’m pretty sure that there has been tons of market research with regard to the perfect sized foot. Â Unfortunately, not every foot is created equal. Â I’m sure everyone is aware that I have a facebook fan page where I post shoes daily. Â On my page, I have a some of my regulars who show up even though the majority of what I post will not fit them. Â I have to say, it’s quite disheartening to constantly hear that they love the shoe but it doesn’t come in their size. Â I have no idea why most major manufacturers have not jumped all over this market.
There are a couple of sites that cater to women who have wider feet but I have to be honest, the name of my site is Sexy Bags & Shoes and the selection of what is considered sexy is slim. Â Again, I’m sure there has probably been tons of research done on this topic that says if you have a wide or a large foot that you don’t want sexy or additional height. Â Well, as with most rules, there are exceptions. Â A friend saw a really hot pair of Jessica Simpson shoes on my fan page & so she purchased them with her fingers crossed that maybe they would fit her, when I say hot, I mean 5 1/4″ heel and all. Â Got them home and then sadly found that her hopes were dashed. Â I’m not sure where the thought came from that women with larger feet or who are taller don’t want to wear heels.
My best girlfriend is literally 6′ tall without shoes, I don’t think she owns a pair that is lower than a 4″ heel. Â Fortunately for her, she has a larger foot but her width is pretty standard. Â For those of you with wide & large feet, here are the few options I’ve managed to find.
Barefoot Tess – They don’t have a large selection of high heels but at least they do have some. I love that they take into account that if you leave a larger footprint, you may need more stability. Wedges work well for adding both height & stability.
DesignerShoes.com – This retailer also offers shoes for women who have larger or wider feet. The highest heel I found was 3″ and they have some trendy looks.
I will admit though, when it comes down to a truly sexy shoe with some serious height, I refer people to ShoesUSA.com. Â There are a few places to make a custom shoe but nothing quite like what you find here. Â The sizes are as small as a size 4 all the way to a size 14 1/2 and the heels heights go all the way to 6″. Â Depending on what you design, these shoes run neck and neck price wise with your favorite designers but you have an original shoe, your colors, your size, your heel height. Â Be as sexy & as unique as you dare. Â I hope this helps some of the women that are having a challenge finding great shoes that are truly sexy.
