For those of us with feet larger than a size eight or nine - the average woman’s shoe size in the U.S- shoe shopping may seem like a torturous chore rather than a delightful experience. Just like our bodies and the shapes that accompany them, shoes have different stances and range from petite, to wide and curvy depending on the length and thickness of our feet.
Plus size shoes are truly not hard to find; contrary to popular beliefs, plus size shoes are being sold in many more stores and outlets because of the popular demand. Even though fairy tale movies may show ballet dancer’s tiny feet and lovely glass slippers in a size six, this does not mean that extended size shoes can’t be just as gorgeous, if not even more.
Know your shoe size!
Shoe sizes vary with each different style and company. For those of us with larger feet, say sizes 9-12 or even higher, shoe sizes are especially hard because of the rarity in stores. When shopping for plus size shoes, know your size in different brands! If you are a size 10 in sneakers, which are wider than most shoe styles, do not be surprised or saddened to find that in formal pointed heels, you may be a size 11.
Use plus size in a positive manner!
This may sound cheesy, but tell yourself that you love your body and your feet! Love yourself, and you will love what you put on your feet and body even more than before. There is nothing wrong with having larger feet! Or having to use plus size shoes. Having to buy larger sized shoes should not be seen as a chore or a death sentence but as something lovely and exciting! Humans come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, which include feet, some of us have wider feet, while others of us are longer, and that is okay! Plus size shoes are just as beautiful as regular shoe sizes, just like people.
Flare it up!
Give the shoes some sparkle! Accent the gorgeousness by looking for large sized shoes that fit your agenda. If you are shopping for a specific event and want to look classy but chic, try something in a color that isn’t black. Colors are for everyone, regardless of stereotypes and shoe sizes. Wear stiletto heels with embellishments or a complimentary, yet bold, color to offset your outfit. Everyone love a show-stopper accessory.
