Women’s Shoe Sizes by Denae Doyle Consulting
Many women have difficulty finding a pair of shoes that do not hurt their feet. Nothing will destroy your “feminine stride” like a pair of tight shoes! To avoid this common mistake, I recommend most TG women select a WIDE width when wearing closed toe heels or boots. Or, select an open toe shoe or sandal. Men generally have wider feet than most women. If you have a flat foot, it is important to select a higher quality woman’s shoe. Also, add padding to your heels, such as Good Feet.
There are very few US retail stores that carry a WIDE width in woman’s shoes in larger sizes over size 10. Through my work, I have located the two best stores– for the larger and/or wide shoe which anyone can purchase over the internet. Nordstrom’s for the more expensive shoe and Payless Shoe Source for the less expensive shoe. Another great tip—use their web site! Both stores have wonderful large color photos showing what sizes are available from their entire data base and often ship for free. http://www.nordstroms.com and http://www.paylessshoesource.com Nordstrom’s has many quality shoes in the $85.00 and up range.
