Question: I’m a 5’10”, thin, average feet (not too narrow, not too wide) but large feet (size 11). I find it impossible to find shoes that have great style and versatility in my size at a decent price. I’m already pretty tall and all though I love many of the great designer heels coming onto the scene, I’d be the 8 foot woman if I wore any of them. Help me find some fabulous shoes that I can really afford! I need to know where to go and what to buy if my feet are ever to get out of their current wardrobe!
Answer: Back in July we pointed out a sale at one of our favorites for modestly priced shoes for big feet — Barefoot Tess. There you’ll find flats galore from a size 5 to 13, all at reasonable prices. We also suggest DesignerShoes.com where you can find inexpensive shoes in up to a size 16. Of course, there’s the traditional go-to etailer, Zappos, that offers free shipping both ways and a search by size function that allows you to pinpoint shoes up to a size 18. These Gabriella Rocha Leyla flats are just darling and only $55.
