Large Size Shoe Shops for Women

I’ve worn a size 11 or 12 shoe since I was in 6th grade so finding fabulous women’s shoes in a larger size has always been quite the undertaking.  Selection and availability have definitely improved over the years with more and more large size shoe shops for women popping up all the time.  To see all of my shoe reviews, click here.

Here are some large size shoes shops for women where you can find your dream pair of generously sized shoes:

North America

Rothy’s – Rothy’s is a US-based online shoe brand that goes up to a size 13! The shoes are made from recycled plastic water bottles and are SO comfy. I ordered both the ballet flat and the pointed toe flat and ended up keeping the pointed two pair. Check out my review here!

Smash Shoes – US-based and offering colorful, trendy and fun shoes up to size US13; Ships internationally

Nordstrom/Nordstrom Rack – Back in the olden days, Nordstrom started out as a shoe store so it’s no wonder they’ve realized that there’s a market for extended size shoes (unlike many other department stores who only carry up to a size 10).  On the website (and sometimes in the stores), they go up to size US14.  I’ve definitely seen size 13 and 14 shoes sitting out at the Nordstrom Rack stores. Sign up for the email list to find out about special “extended shoe size” events.

Zappos – The site lists women’s shoes up to a size 20 but when I had a gander at the shoes in sizes 17-20, they all looked unisex to me (Converse, various athletic shoes etc.).  It looks like their selection of women’s shoes goes up to size 16.  Zappos offers FREE shipping (although items may take 4-5 days to arrive so Zappos isn’t quite as speedy) and FREE returns.

Marmi – Marmi’s selection is mostly for the more “mature” leggy lady but I do see something that strikes my fancy every now and again. The go up to size US13 and have several locations throughout the US.

    Hi! Love your blog, although I haven’t read all of it yet 😉 Have you found tall boots that have tall shafts? My feet are not large but my calves/shins are quite long, so all the standard tall boots are too short – the ‘calf bump’ hits well below my actual calf. Any wonderful tall boot finds out there?

      Hi Laura! Thanks for stopping by and so glad to hear you like the blog. What size shoe do you wear? One tip I can offer you (and you probably already know this) is to look at the shaft height on some of the boots on tall retailer sites like Long Tall Sally. This will give you an idea of the shaft height you’re looking for and then you can compare this with the measurements on boots from “non-tall” retailers. I know that my 6’2 blogger friend Karen at TallWife.com found a stunning pair of over-the-knee boots from Sam Edelman. She featured them on her blog recently. If I think of any more places you might be able to look, I will let you know.
