    Hi,

    Most of my favourite large size (uk10) shoe shops seem to have closed over the last 5 years. I recently bought some from Amazon from China but am not very happy with the fit (too narrow).

    I’m just looking for regular court shoes with 1 to 3 inch heels and also a pair of suede knee boots with 3 inch heels.

    All I can find now is some v expensive suppliers and the eBay/Amazon Chinese manufacturers.

    Does anyone have advice for regular shoes at affordable prices from UK?

    Thanks so much!

    Megan

      Hi Megan

      As mentioned above – long tall sally website would be a good place to start,

      but ‘Onlymaker’  may be the best place to look – its not in the UK  but makes shoes up to size 15 !!

      Maybe worth buying a few as the prices seem reasonable -??

      ‘ onlymaker.com ‘ … its an American site and looks great, but not seen any of their products in the flesh so to speak ..

      Hope that helps

      Dawn

      I have a few pairs of “Dream Pairs” ballet pumps from Amazon, size 9, I am normally an 8.5.

      In fact just ordered another couple of pairs in different colours.

      I think Dorothy Perkins and New look do wider fit.  Debenhams have a huge rage and larger sizes.

      However I am buying cheaper shoes at the moment as I “find my style”.

      I have quite a wide fit, normally have to wear Meindl men’s shoes as they are a wider German fit, or go up half a size for ecco.

      Hey Megan

      Hope you are well.

      Strangely enough, the best fitting shoes I have found have been in Primark.

      Although their heels are way beyond anything I can walk in, I have a pair of smart loafers, flats and boots and they are brilliant!

      Hope this helps.

      Hugs

      J D Williams, Dorothy Perkins and New Look all do larger sizes – and Jones the bookmaker too.

      I was drooling over a lovely pair of boots in Jones’, and, when I asked the assistant if they had any sizes larger than 8, she said that I could order them, and the shop would hold on to them until I was ready to try them – even if that was weeks away – and I’d only pay if they fitted and were exactly what I wanted.

      The branch of New Look I went into said the same thing – so it’s worth hunting and asking!

      Most of my shoes are from these stores.

      Love Laura

      Maybe not what you want, buuut….

      I’m still finding my way here, so all my early shoe purchases have been secondhand. Personally I’d rather have something decent quality, leather pref, that’s hardly worn than something cheap, and probably poorly fitting. I’ve got some lovely black ankle boots, some Timberland calf length brown leather/nubuk boots (I reckon new 200£ for 40£) and just now some Think Mary Janes, all leather, €30. Obvs u have to take a chance on sizing, my fave s/h shop does free delivery and returns tho…!

      hope you’re having a nice relaxing Sunday

      stay safe

      Seren xx
