    Hello my loves! I must kindly ask I troubling question that has bothered me for quite some time.

    Being a Canadian, I’ve never really had access to many options regarding stores that carry shoes (heels in specific) in my size. Unlike broader economies, such as the US and UK, here we have limited stores other than Amazon that carry shoes in my size (I wear a women’s size 13) and I was just curious if others knew of secret gems I didn’t regarding this issue.

    If anyone has any advice, I’m happy to hear anything your comfortable sharing! Thanks!

    Evany

      Wow!  I do owe an apology for missing that.  Not shipping outside the U.S. is something I honestly never look for/overlook on a site.  I just don’t get it though.  If we can mail privately from the U.S. to Canada, why can’t UPS, DHL, and FedEx just drive it across that mystical red line on the map?  And, all 3 of those services have an air fleet too, so if that line is tearing up their trucks or something, why not just fly over it, it cant be THAT high, the cold fronts keep flowing right on over it.

      I honestly do apologize for missing that.

        It’s no problem…. It’s a common thing, and it’s not always easy to find.   You don’t need to apologize for missing it.

        I’d only added the editorial comments for the exact same reason that you think it’s silly they don’t ship to Canada.   It’s just a painful that it seems it’s because they can’t issue the export/import papers that they don’t (and that Canada is 10% the size of the US market).

      You girls might try a store called ‘Shoe Dept.’.  They stock mostly stock reductions from other companies and are very reasonably priced, and have lots of larger sizes that won’t sell in a lot of stores, and most a named brands too.  Online, shoedept.com

        Booo! … US shipping only.

        Paula Thanks for the link but unless you can jump across to the US or have a shipping service (which is more available to those who are lucky enough to be near to the border, for us Canadians), it would appear that you’re out of luck with this one.

      Hi Regi,

      I would be willing to forward the shoes to you, and even cover the postage, one time.  But it would be better for one of the girls in Michigan or Wisconsin to do it.

      I’m a 13 Wide, so I feel your pain. Pickings are slim, even on Amazon; but we have a Shoe Show in our mall, and I just got a pair of flats in 13W, and low-heel boots in 12W (their 13W was actually too big!).  They also have online shopping, and Payless online has a few, also.

      I totally get how you feel on that Regine, just because it can be often so expensive to order online and lacks the empowerment that walking into a store and buying things can often provide. I only hope that a window of opportunity opens up for us crossdressers and trans folk after the pandemic. I’ll let you know if I discover anything!

      xoxo

      I’m shopping a lot at aliexpress and there they do sometimes have huge (women  20!) sizes and many even have free return. For example how about how about some low heel (7cm) pumps that goes to size 19US/50 for $19 (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005001332782875.html) or some very high (4″+ = not for beginners) stiletto boots for $25US and size up to 48 ? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000113611016.html.
      If you don’t like them for any reason they can be returned for free (they provide a prepaid return label).
      The biggest issue is that it takes a while to arrive and you will have issues trying to find your size but with the free return you at least don’t have to spend $$ on stuff you can’t use.

      Thanks endlessly Kelly! This may honestly have saved me from much of my stress of ordering online! Thanks!

      Shoes.com had a decent variety of 11 and 12 boots. I picked up a couple pairs recently.

      Shoe Show on line has at least 35 pairs of women’s shoes from flats to heels at 13W and Payless on line also has heels up to 13.  I recently ordered a pair of blue 4″ spike heels in 12W for $19.95 with free shipping. I expect in Canada you would have to pay for shipping. Mine should be here either tomorrow or Tuesday and I’ll let you know how I like them.
