 Size 11-12 shoes?!

I know it has been posted before, but Im hoping new girls might have new suggestions..

I have big feet... like size 12...
It's impossible for me to find nice shoes..
Tall girl on Queen has some.... but they are so overpriced.
Payless has some, but they are so cheap!

Is it too much to ask to get "regular" nice shoes?!
I'm sure im not the only one with big feet?
Where do you buy your shoes?!


Im seriously desperate...:/

The last couple of pairs I've gotten from Walking On A Cloud.... but again, they're pricey. But at least they're really good quality to go with the pricey. Anywhere that focuses on 'foot health' (so Walking On a Cloud, BioPed, etc.), will have larger sizes in stock or be able to order them.

I also had luck in KW at a store that catered largely to the Mennonite community... they had the best selection of good quality shoes in hard to find sizes (and at an 11/12 AAA/AA, I know about shoe angst *laugh*)

Try the Shoe Company (if you have one nearby) - they carry 11's and you should find a few that run a little larger...

I find the Shoe Company can be a little too close to the Payless end of the scale, personally... inexpensive, reasonable looking shoes, but poor quality (no support, no durability)

I hear you. I wear 11.5 and have the same complaints. I have recently found Aerosoles as a brand. I got a couple of pair at Tallcrest and also a pair at The Shoe Company for much less. But the best deal was online. Even with shipping and duty the sales shoes were worth it.

They fit a bit bigger than normal so 11's fit me-truthfully they might be a bit too big, but I like them. Online they do have 12's. There is a store in the Rideau Centre if you want to try on their sizing.

Good luck! It's like finding a needle in a haystack to find good fitting stylish shoes that aren't cheap but aren't an arm and a leg either.

Aldo carries 11 but you usually have to buy online.

There is an internet company I heard of here (in Australia) that specializes in shoes for women size 9-14. She is an ex-basketball player and could never find shoes...so she started a company.

Check it out: http://www.soleymoley.com.au/Soley_Moley/Welcome.html

She ships Internationally.

My sister wears an 11. She buys most of her shoes online from Barefoot Tess. She has the best shoe collection of anyone I know. They also have a Facebook page that lets you know of sales.

I second Aerosoles as well, as my current favourite shoes are from there.
