Large Size Ladies Shoes at Katie Long Shoes!

Since the age of 14 when I grew my size 8 ½ tootsies, I've always struggled to get really nice shoes.  You know that feeling when you go into the shop, admire all the gorgeous shoes and then ask for about 10 pairs of shoes in an 8 and they come out with 1 pair!!! Of course often they give you a 41 for a size 8 (which for those of us with big feet is really annoying when we want a 42 for an 8).  Then, because you can just about squeeze into them, you buy them, wear them once and then they get relegated to the back of the wardrobe ready for the annual charity clear out 12 months down the line!

Of course, I have loads of girlfriends who are experts at buying the most luscious shoes which look fab on their nice size 5 & 6 feet! So, I decided to stop feeling jealous and do something about it. And so in Feb 2008 I started my quest for lovely Large Size Ladies Shoes!

Sourcing has been fun,frustrating, irritating and sometimes just plain disappointing! There are so many amazing companies producing fabulous shoes but often only up to size 41, not willing to invest in the larger lasts (moulds) to produce the bigger sizes. I really believe this will gradually change as more and more young people are growing up taller and with larger feet. For now I've found a few good suppliers I hope to work with and hopefully develop with as my website grows.

I wouldn't say all my shoes are perfect yet! We all like different things but there should be something for everyone.  You'll find lots of variety, but I don't hold lots of stock of each shoe.  Some shoes I have definately have the wow factor, but I am still looking for those suppliers that can give more wow factor in 'Large Sizes' so if you read this and you can help email me!

Most shoe buying is done at least 6 months ahead (a season in advance basically.) However, if there is a type or style of shoe you would love to have then please email me and let me know. If you simply wish to make a comment, make a recommendation then please let me know. All feedback is valuable. Click here to contact us.
