Bette Midler once said, “Give a girl the correct footwear and she can conquer the world.” That’s all well and true, but what if a girl’s trying to conquer a Christmas party and can’t find cute shoes to fit her size 11 feet? What then, Bette? What then?!
You can see this is touching a nerve for me, because it used to be my life. Any woman with big feet will tell you that shoe shopping can be a total nightmare. Fortunately, there are gorgeous shoes available in sizes that are bigger than a 9—you just have to know where to look.
The following are 13 pairs of holiday party-appropriate shoes for girls whose feet are bigger than a size 9.
ASOS Penelope Pointed High Heels, $63 (sizes 10 and 11)
ASOS always knocks it out of the park, and these red faux suede heels are no exception.
Zara Mid-Heel Court Shoe, $39.99 (sizes 10 and 11)
These two-toned heels from Zara would be a great fit for the girl who likes to keep her pops of color on the subtle side.
ASOS Leyton Embellished Pointed Ballet Flats, $45 (sizes 10 and 11)
Who needs a heel when your shoes are this gorgeous and detailed?
Eloquii Leopard Print d’Orsay Heels, $130 CAD (ships to the US and Canada; wide width, sizes 10, 11, and 12)
These are the most expensive shoes on the list by a long shot, but I thought they were too gorgeous to leave off. Consider these shoes and investment purchase, because leopard never goes out of style.
Torrid Strappy Platform Heels, $52.50 (wide width, sizes 10, 11, 12, and 13)
If you have wide feet, you need to get yourself to a Torrid store, stat. All of their shoes come in a wide width, and they’re gorgeous. Case in point: the pair above.
Christian Siriano for Payless Dena Smoking Loafer, on sale for $19.99 (wide width available, sizes 10, 11, 12, and 13)
Christian Siriano’s line for Payless is really cute and crazily inexpensive. The best thing about his shoes, however, is the sizing: these loafers (and all Christian Siriano for Payless shoes) are available in both regular and wide width, up to a size 13.
ASOS Soulmate Co-ord Pointed Heels, $45 (sizes 10 and 11)
The striped print on these shoes remind me of super chic wrapping paper, and I love that.
ASOS Steal the Show Heels, $35.50 (sizes 10 and 11)
I’m a sucker for coral, and I love the T-strap on these ASOS shoes.
ASOS Moonstone Flat Shoes, $72 (sizes 10 and 11)
Everyone could use a great pair of embellished loafers during the holiday season.
Torrid Faux Suede Mary Jane Heels, $49.50 (wide width, sizes 10, 11, 12, and 13)
Mary Janes are a Christmas party staple, and this pair would be great for girls who are looking for a little lift.
ASOS Platinum Pointed High Heels, $48 (sizes 9.5 and 10)
I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t be able to go anywhere in these heels without hearing about how gorgeous they are.
ASOS Landmark Embellished Ballets, $45 (wide width, sizes 10 and 11)
I love the embellishment on the toes of these wide-width flats from ASOS.
ASOS Play it Cool Pointed High Heels, $53 (sizes 10 and 11)
Who doesn’t love a good pair of slingbacks? I really like the color on this pair, too.
