Fashionable and wide are two terms that just don't seem to exist when looking for shoes.  It is so difficult to find wide cute shoes.  It took me days just to be able to put this post together. Being blessed with both a wide instep and big feet, I'm always on the look out for that rare combination.  It's kind of like spotting that chicken on Orange is the New Black.  (Yes, that is my new show!) Anyways, I often frequent Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack for their wide widths and size 11s, but it's important to know that other places that carry wide shoes exist. Your plus size clothing retailers will often carry them if they have a shoe section.  If they don't carry wide widths, their shoes will generally have a wider fit.  Don't be discouraged by the nurse shoes, keep looking, because you can usually find one or two pair of shoes that are totally fancy. It's all about being patient and consistently looking at these sites for new arrivals.  This brings me to my next point, buy your shoes sparingly.  I don't have a slew of shoes anymore. With a knee surgery behind me, shoe pain being the most ungodly pain on the face of the earth, and just being older, I can't take uncomfortable shoes.  I'd rather wear three girdles that are three sizes too small than to endure the pain caused by a pair of vengeful pumps. With that being said, I'm always willing to wait for that perfect pair of shoes that I can both walk in, have some comfort for 3 to 4 hours, and above everything...is fabulous.  I'd rather pay for one pair of shoes that are gorgeous and a great fit than 10 pair that I can barely walk in.

  1. All of these shoes are lovely...I want some black knee boots. My been ones are perfect! I got them from Avenue which also has nice wide width shoes and boots and they have good sales!

  2. Love them all but like you I have knee problems requiring treatment and the orthopedist said absolutely NO shoe with a heel higher then 1 inch. He blames heels on women needing knee surgery and knee replacements and hip replacements more then men and said they also cause bunions and hammer toes. hmmm.. well no more heels for me!

  6. YES!! I'm so glad that you're hooked on Orange is the new Black!! LOL! It's a really good show! I can't wait for the second season.

    My struggle is the opposite. I have small/puffy feet. I wear a size 7 and the top of my feet are naturally puffy. I despise the "pump fat" that I get when wearing the cutest shoes sometimes.

    And don't get me started on brands that claim to have wide shaft boots, but don't. Ugh!

    Those boots are calling my name. :)

    p.s. I won't lie by omission...probably going to get those torrid leopard print pumps too hahaha. :)
