My friend Genevieve has big feet (sorry hun). Size 11 to be exact. Don't get me wrong; Genevieve is a beautiful, smart gal, with jet black hair, and stands a little over six feet tall. Her only downfall is her gargantuan feet. Most major department stores don't stock her size and the rare times she finds a shoe in her size, they're ugly and old fashioned. If you can relate to Genevieve, check out BarefootTess.com.

This wonderful site specializes in selling trendy and fashionable shoes in sizes 6 to 15. Besides carrying their own line, BarefootTess.com carries a large — no pun intended — selection of popular shoes mongers including Chie Mihara, Corso Cormo, and Loeffler Randall. Stomp loud, stop proud.

The average shoe size for American women is 8 -- formerly less than size 5; the average height is about 5'4" -- it used to be about 5'. Clothing sizes haven't quite kept up with size increases. http://www.slate.com/id/2065546/

I have to agree, Barefoot Tess is a fantastic shoe store that caters to those of us who wear sizes 11 and up. There is also another great shoe site that all you full-footed women have to visit. It's called Your Feet Make You Unique. This shoe site was created by a woman who says she proudly wears size 11 shoes. You'll find all kinds of designer shoes in larger sizes (11 and up), shoe reviews and articles. I think it's a fantastic site. So definitely check out Your Feet Make You Unique at http://www.yourfeetmakeyouunique.com

I have to agree with previous posters; "downfall" and "gargantuan" are pretty harsh ways to describe someone's feet. For someone that tall, they're in proportion to her height. As another tall girl who wears size 11, I have to admit that I've had some pretty bad experiences asking for help finding that size in stores. Sales women have raised eyebrows, asked me if I was sure that is my size and one even laughed out loud. (Weird, I know.) Now I just buy large shoes at Nordstroms or online.

I'm only 5'5", but I wear a size 10 or 11 depending on the style. I usually have a hard time finding shoes so I'll definitely check out this site.One of my friends is 6' and wears a size 12, so I'll definitely pass this on to her. She has a ridiculously horrible time finding shoes.

This is an awesome site for tall girls! Being a 6'1" fashionista I know the agony that comes with trying to find great shoes (and pants), there are not a lot of good resources for tall women. One site that I love is www.thetallstreetjournal.com, it is a brand new site but has the potential to be a great resource.

at 5'10", i'm a size 11 as well (and agree with bhilb about the "downfall" comments--ouch!), and i've given up shopping in regular shoe stores. it's impossible to find anything that's a) cute & not frumpy, and b) decent quality.i've been a big fan of barefoot tess for the last year, actually. the great thing is that they carry up to a size 15, and stock really nice brands. sign up for their email lists, they have CRAZY sales. as in, 40% off of sale prices.

brielleblonde, I didn't mean offend at all which, I'm glad I didn't. I'm just being honest about it because other people are so honest about their hatred for longer feet.
brielleblonde brielleblonde 8 years
wow, royalbluemoss, i'm glad your so straightforward. i actaully love my shorter feet, which are not stubby at all, and look particularly fabulous in shoes! Then again I think i would look silly 5'3 with long feet, so short ones fit me well :)
RoyalBlueMoss RoyalBlueMoss 8 years
um, I think feet under a size 8 on women are gross and stubby personally. They look weird. I have a size 10 and I love my long gorgeous feet.

I have size 11 feet. When I was growing up and would go shopping my sisters (both with size 7 1/2 feet) would have a wealth of shoes to choose from and the shoe salesman would hand me a single pair. I am excited to peruse this website.

I don't have large feet, but they are pretty small, and I can relate to the annoyance of never finding your size. I usually wear a 6, but sometimes need a 5 or 5.5 in certain styles, and I can NEVER find them. And the only size 6 in each style is usually the display model, so I get stuck with the pair that everyone has tried on and stuck their feet in. It drives me nuts.

my name is also Genevieve and my feet are size 10.5 or 11...but I am only 5'5", unlike your friend! I am impressed by the rest of you guys who can find shoes in big sizes...I cannot buy online, I always have to try them on...

Wow, as a fellow size 11, I must say I'm a little insulted that you called your friend's feet a "downfall" and "gargantuan." On a tall girl, smaller feet would not work. I'm certainly not the only size 11 that I know, either. Also, like tree-tastic, I don't have a hard time finding shoes, although it is usually more difficult to buy them--i.e., ordering them online rather than walking into a store and buying them.

I have size 11 feet and have never had a hard time finding shoes my size (my huge shoe closet is a testament to this). I think it's great that there is a site for bigger feet, but I don't know that it is necessary. Many of my friends have larger feet and I have never heard them complain about finding shoes or the size of their feet.

i agree, tulipsc! I have size 5 feet and I can NEVER find cute shoes! I hate when they do this, they make big feet stores, and plus size stores.. but not stores for smaller women!

I don't know that many people that wear shoes in size 11 as for women... dont get me wrong, I have nothing against them. I have a lot of girl friends who wear size 5 or 5.5, and I think it's harder for them to find shoes that they want because most of the brands do not carry size 5 - they start from size 6! They should have it for small feet women as well!

That's a good idea. I used to run a couple of shoe stores, and we used to stock only one each of the smallest and biggest sizes (and if the shoes were cute, good luck finding a 5, because I'd already claimed it), so it was very difficult for any size 10 or 11 customers to get what they wanted without special ordering and whatnot. And a lot of the shoes never came in 11 to begin with.

Aw :) I think longer (I hate saying big) feet are beautiful and sexy. I have a special place in my heart for y'all because my mom has size 9 feet and she some how thinks this makes her an alien or something; she always talks about how she wishes she could get that weird toe shortening surgery or whatever. I wish I could take away that self-consciousness away from her, but no matter how hard I try and tell her how many of my friends have size 9 and larger feet, she wont listen! :P ANYWAYS! Barefoot Tess is an awesome site. Sign up for their email list because they have crazy sales all the time. They are an awesome business all around.
