Buying Heels

Unread post by Stahlketten »

I have been noticing that more and more advertising shows "plus sizes" available.
I am lucky enough that I wear almost exactly the same size as my wife so it is not very difficult if I were looking for heels.
Do others here have trouble finding heels in the normally available women's sizes?

There are enough places that carry shoes above size 10 now that it's pretty easy to find good, fashionable women's shoes. We often have to pay a bit more, but usually only another 10-15% or so.

Well, i would say it depends on several things:
  • where are you located? At least in germany there are quite a few stores now, that offer high heels at least to a german size 44/45.
  • what types of shoes are you looking for? Is it more the "normal" everyday wear that you a looking for, or more of the erotic style?
  • do you prefer easy buying and returns in case something goes wrong? I know several people that order from amazon from asian sellers which seems pretty bad when you have some complaints, as well as the quality that "might" be not that good
As JaniceNoyb already wrote at least for moderate plus sized feet the offers get more and more luckily
You can also find me on Facebook or on Visibleshape

This was just from something I had noticed in recent advertising.
I can wear a women's size 9, so availability and selection are pretty good.
I was just wondering how many people here need "Plus Sizes".

I'm a 42 or 43 in EU sizes, 10 1/2 or 11 in US women's sizes. Here is one of my favorite shoe stores. Very classy, well made shoes https://classicpumps.com/

10 1/2 doesn't appear to be that difficult to find with the more common brands. I have been seeing a lot of advertising by Fashion Nova and their sizes go quite a bit larger than that. The site you posted seems to be very conservative in styling.
Torrid is a brand that tends to run in the large and wide sizes as well.

Yes, Classic Pumps are old fashioned & conservative, like me :D . I like them because those are the kinds of shoes women wore when I was first discovering girls in the '60s; the traditional spike heel with a pointed toe. Fashion Nova has some really cool stuff, and there's a Torrid store right here in town (I probably won't go because I'm chicken). Thanks for those links.

If you know your size, Torrid stuff shows up all the time on eBay but usually in much larger sizes than I can use. Fashion Nova has a lot of sales but I have never actually seen their products in person. Visit the Torrid store with your lady friend and see what they have.
