The 6 best shoe brands for plus sizes
I love to shop, but I don’t particularly like shopping for shoes. My fear for this has little to do with the shoes themselves, but more to the drainage process involved. If you’re someone who wears something above a size 10, you know the struggle all too well: until about ten years ago, when my feet decided to push a few inches firmly on size 11 territory, the process was as easy as walking into a store to find what I liked. Because waist extension is rarely stocked in physical stores, now my in-person shopping has turned into online shopping. And if there are specific styles on my wishlist (like Zara’s that have haunted my favorites tab), I usually can’t afford to wait until later; the larger sizes tend to sell out at lightning speed.
If you’re new to the game, you might feel like there are no or few options (especially for stylish and current styles), but don’t give up yet! As a Marketplace Editor, I was able to discover new brands and stores that made my shoe shopping experience much easier. Below, I’ve featured the best places to shop if you have bigger feet like me, along with the most valuable tips and tricks I’ve accumulated over the years. I have a feeling you’ll want to bookmark this for later.
