Best Stylish and Comfortable Shoe Options for Women with Big Feet




Ruby: Black Suede - Stylish Shoes for Women with Big Feet




Having large feet should never stop you from looking and feeling fabulous. By choosing the right shoes, women with larger foot sizes can easily find a balance between style, comfort, and support.


In this complete guide, we will offer valuable information, guidance, and useful tips to finding ladies shoes for big feet. From important features to consider when buying shoes for women with big feet to our top recommendations on flattering shoes for big feet, we have everything you need to know!


Nearly all Sole Bliss shoes are available in a size UK 9 / EU 42. We also have a collection of Trainers called Sprint which are now available in a size EU 43


What Features Should Women Look for When Shopping for Large Shoes?



When searching for ladies shoes for bigger feet, heels are often neglected. However, heels have a remarkable ability to give the illusion of smaller feet by changing the angle of your foot from flat to diagonal.




Verity: Pale Grey Leather - Flattering Shoes for Big Feet




This doesn't mean you have to wear platform heels or heights that you're not comfortable with. Even a moderate heel height of around 5cm can make a visual difference. Sole Bliss shoes provide a variety of styles, ranging from kitten heels to platforms, so there is a style for everyone!


Go for Square or Rounded Toes


In order to make your feet look smaller, it is best to avoid shoes with pointed toes and choose ones that have rounded or square toes instead. The best shoes for women with big feet in the Sole Bliss collection are Mercy and Victoria (among lots of other cute shoes for big feet) and these offer a round and square toe shape to alleviate the appearance of difficult joints and big feet.



Mercy: Navy Suede - Ladies Shoes for Big Feet




These styles can help make your feet look more in proportion and add a classy touch to your shoes. Embrace the flexibility and timeless charm of rounded toe shoes to enhance your style and boost your confidence.


Look for Horizontal Straps


Shoes that feature straps are an excellent choice for stylish shoes for women with big feet. Choose shoes with horizontal, thicker straps, such as Mary Janes or T-Bar sandals, as they visually break up the foot and create an illusion of a narrower silhouette. However, be cautious with ankle straps, as they can make the feet appear wider and shorter.




Madison: Pale Taupe Suede - Shoes for Ladies with Big Feet





Choose Dark Colours and Neutral Tones


The choice of colour is really important for shoes for women with big feet. Dark and neutral tones, such as black, navy, brown, beige and other deep hues, have the remarkable ability to work wonders in creating a slimming effect, thus making your feet appear smaller.




Chloe: Black Suede & Luxe Leopard - Cute Shoes for Big Feet





These shades have a visually receding quality that helps to minimise the appearance of larger feet. We would advise to steer clear of white shoes as this colour tends to enhance the appearance of being bigger and can draw more attention. The best shoes for women with big feet are always dark. 


Comfortable and Supportive Styles are Key


When choosing women's shoes for bigger feet, it is important to prioritise comfort. Seek out designs that have cushioned soles and sufficient arch support to ensure you can stay comfortable all day long. Sole Bliss shoes are designed for comfort!

It is crucial to find the right fit to avoid any discomfort or foot problems, so don't hesitate to try different widths and styles. Sole Bliss shoes are designed with 3 Layers of Memory Foam cushioning built underfoot, creating a soft and comforting foundation for your feet.


Look for High-Quality Materials


Choosing shoes of high quality is important for durability and long-lasting comfort. It is advisable to select footwear made from superior materials, such as high-quality leathers and suedes, as they allow your feet to breathe, minimising the likelihood of foot odour and discomfort. The use of premium materials is essential in ensuring optimal breathability and enhancing overall comfort.




Sprint: Black Leather - Trainers in Size 43




All Sole Bliss shoes are handmade in Spain and Italy with the use of high-quality craftsmanship that plays a pivotal role in determining the longevity and overall feel of our shoes. Therefore, investing in shoes crafted with the utmost attention to detail can make a substantial difference in your footwear experience, providing both comfort and durability.

Ranging in multiple colours and designs, we are sure you will find a style you love!




Luna: Cream Croc - Wide Round Toe Ballet Flats




Continuing with the topic of flat shoes for bigger feet, we suggest opting for chic and comfortable styles that include embellishments on the toe area.

These delightful embellishments not only add a feminine touch but also ensure that you remain comfortable throughout the day.

Tips for Shoe Shopping for Women with Big Feet:



Understanding Your Precise Measurements:


It is crucial to have accurate foot measurements in order to find the perfect shoe size. You can try visiting a professional shoe fitter who can determine both the length and width of your feet.


This serves as a foundation to help guide you in the right direction, as various brands may use different measurements and sizes based on their origin. In this instance, we suggest using your EU when considering Sole Bliss shoes. All our shoes are crafted in Spain and Italy and we use EU size conversions.



Embracing Your Foot Size and Prioritizing Comfort:


Celebrate the distinctiveness of your foot size, as it contributes to your individuality. We firmly believe in valuing comfort over conforming to societal norms.
