Crossdresser Shop - High Heels

There’s nothing that says feminine bombshell more than a sexy pair of high heels. Whether your preference is 4″ stiletto’s or a more modest 2″ wedge heel you face a challenge shared by many crossdressers – finding shoes that fit well.

Finding the Right Size Woman’s Shoes

Woman’s shoes are smaller and narrower than men’s shoes. When buying woman’s shoes you should start with at least one size larger than the men’s dress shoe you wear, and one width wider. While you’re probably familiar with sizes, width’s can be a bit trickier. Widths are measured by letters (A, B, C, D and E), where A is narrower, and E is wider. 2A or 4A or even narrower, and 2E and 4E even wider. Some websites substitute N (narrow, roughly equivalent to A), W (wide, roughly a C/D), and WW (very wide, roughly E or 2E).

Some examples:

  • A men’s size 10 would be a woman’s 11W or 12W
  • A men’s size 10W would be a woman’s 11WW or 12WW

Where to Find Large Woman’s Shoes

Now that you know your woman’s shoe size, you’ll discover that not many stores stock your size, often topping out at a size 10M, or if you’re lucky a size 11W. Many crossdressers need shoes a few sizes larger. Thankfully there are now many stores stocking larger shoes, often in sizes up to 15 or 16. I’ve listed a few of my favorite stores below. All of them stock larger shoe sizes.

Shop For Crossdresser High Heels

The Internet is vast, if you start with the three stores below I can almost guarantee that you’ll find a fabulous pair of large woman’s shoes that fits you perfectly.

Buy Large Size Heels at Zappos

Zappos: Great selection of large woman’s shoes, and offers free shipping both ways. The safest way to find your woman’s shoe size is to order a few shoes from Zappos and return the one’s that don’t fit. I have had wonderful customer service from Zappos, they have my strongest recommendation.

Pierre Silber – Sexy High Heels In Larger Sizes: The name says it all. A great place to buy sexy high heels in sizes up to size 16.

Designer Shoe Warehouse: High quality at a great price – you can’t go wrong with DSW.

Nordstrom: Wear the latest fashions. Nordstrom often has larger sizes up to 13W.

Other Places to Find Large Woman’s Shoes

Payless Shoe Source: Payless has a surprisingly robust selection of large woman’s shoes in sizes up to 13. If you’re on a budget these can be a great alternative to the pricier stores. Be sure to shop online, I’ve found that in store the selection of larger sizes tends to be lacking.

Shiekh Shoes: Woman’s shoes in sizes up to 15.

Shoe Show: A fabulous collection of larger sized shoes and boots.

Heels.com: Lots of cute high heels, but their selection starts to thin for size 11 and 12.

Wide Widths: Fashionable Wide calf boots.

    • Ashley Qubit 2 years ago

  5. Holly 2 years ago

    Here kin the uk I mostly buy my high heels from justfab I’m a size 9 in footwear, their shoes are well made great fit and they’ve expanded their website so I can buy clothes which is excellent also have a look a their GX range of shoes designed by Gwen Stefani from No Doubt they have special deals if you add a friend.

  6. Samantha G..... 2 years ago

    It’s also very hard to find half sizes above women’s size 10. Most stop at 9.5
    You can also probably get by with a smaller size for a sandal (open toe) shoe
    than for a pump (closed toe)
    Sandal I can wear a 10 but pump I need 11.

  7. Shaynna Clark 2 years ago

    I love sexy heels just like most girls and I understand the internet is a great tool to browse or buy heels from. What I’d like to know is why all the sexy heels stop at size 9? Is it me or does it happen to all us girls with a 10 and up?

  8. Debra Wright 2 years ago

    I couldn’t find a wide shoe with just fab but I did buy flats from them their tight but comfortable

  9. Karyn Lobelia 2 years ago

    I love wearing ballet flats or Mary Janes at home or shopping . It was really hard to Karnataka to wear heels . I suggest staring with kitten heels and slowly gaining height in heels . Wearing pencil skirts or dresses will help you learn to walk in high heels . I am only 126 pounds so I can easily walk in heels , I suggest with a large bag you can wear flats and change to heels . I always wear flats when I drive by myself , with heels ready to put on when I get out if I want to wear them . Of course , if I am with my wife she drives and I wear my lovely heels .

  10. Candy 2 years ago

    I was born a woman and I can’t find 13 ew Mary Janes for less than $50
    Husband set a limit on me.
    I just want to hide & cry

  11. Janine 2 years ago

    I found the cutest pair of heels in my local Payless store.
    They don’t have a large selection of shoes in my size but occasionally I go there and find a pair or two that are
    The ones that I bought are my favorite because of the way that they fit and look
    I’ve got quite a few compliments on how they look when I’m out especially if I’m at the mall.

  12. Robert Montoya 2 years ago

    I have bought shoes from sexy shoes. Com. They have larger sizes I wear a size 14 they are too best.

  13. Christina Bentley 2 years ago

    I’m a size 9 and it go’s all the way up to a 16 wow that is nice just glad that it does where everyone can have some heels to wear . And be beautiful all at the same time.

  14. Marissa 2 years ago

    Nordstrom Rack has well fitting flats, heels, boots, etc up to size 13. Brands like Jessica Simpson, Franco Sarto, BCBG Generation, sometimes Tory Burch in size 12. Most of these sit on the shelves so I wait for their 25% Clear the Rack Sale. As a mens size 10.5, a women 12 wide fits nice…

  15. Marian 2 years ago

    I found a great pair of heels at just fab I’m a size 11 and they look and feel great they have lots of great styles and sizes

  16. KerryMichelle 2 years ago

    I bought a cute pair of gray and black peep toe sling backs in a size 10 at Payless shoes for only $19.99. They look good with black slacks or a LBD and are fairly comfortable for walking. I recommend them.

  17. tina 2 years ago

    I m have a width problems with swelling in the ankles and need the WW Width and the size 12 fits great and since I have and impressive collection Of Boots from them Wear them when I can Hmmmmmmmmmm.

  20. Sharon ainsley 2 years ago

    I have bought shoesome from shoe dept. and online from ebay. I am lucky that I do not have a large foot. My favorite shoe maker is Steve Madden. They are easy to wear and fit really well. I have also had a lot of luck with guess brand shoes. A lot of other brands just are off some how either small toe box or to narrow. Charlotte Russe is another good brand. I wear a size 10, so I count myself lucky. I hope this helps you girls.

  21. Kestianna 2 years ago

    I’ve always had a terrible time buying shoes…being a size 12/13 men’s, makes looking for good women’s shoes tricky at best!

    • Kim Cummings 1 year ago

      They are out there. Try a site called snaz75.com I have found that they have sizes up to 14 and larger.

    • Kim Cummings 1 year ago

      I found some adorable high heels, some are 6 inch pumps and high heels with peep toe clear sandals too. The sexy one’s are in my opinion the patent leather high heel pumps in up to sizero 14.

    I just dropped off my son at the university and there was a co-ed making her way across the parking lot. I looked at her and thought–“oh my God, I have those shoes, too!”

  24. Michelle Brown 2 years ago

    I,also,have had that same experience.I watch a female attorney walk into the building and realized I had the same pair of shoes she had on.Oh ,the joys of shoe shopping.

  25. Lea 2 years ago

    Two of my favorite thoughts…”I love her shoes” and “I’ve got those too”.

    Recently, I’ve started to work up the courage to actually compliment women on their shoes or outfits (makes them smile, maybe they get curious too about a guy who notices, makes me smile that maybe I made somebody’s day).

  26. Dot (Donna B) 2 years ago

    Great to know about these. One to add to the list is ” shoebuy.com ). They go to 15 and on occasion I’ve seen wide heels to 17. Yes I have big feet and bought two pair. Good price and delivery. Thanks for other site. Liked Zappos for lots. Later. Peace and hugs.

    • Julie Carson 2 years ago

      Donna I have sizw fifteen male shoe so 17 women’s. I found a pair of high heels in my size, haven’t worn heels since I fit into mothers. Do u wear high heels

  27. Sarah-Jane 2 years ago

    I love strappy 4″ to 5″ heels ( my weakness ) and wear a UK size 9 but need wide fitting. Trying to find the styles I like in colours other than black is almost impossible and I like to colour coordinate outfits so blues, reds and neutral are essential for me. Looking on Amiclub’s site I found a gorgeous pair of turquoise pastel sandals that would be perfect for me and with a discount code only $14.99 however delivery was almost $70. I see lots of beautiful clothes and shoes on US sites but always the delivery costs are very prohibitive.

  28. tina 2 years ago

    I love wearing womens high heeled boots I wear size 13 knee High Boots boots and also thigh high Boots I really enjoy wearing them would love to see other cross dressers wearing them .

  29. debbie 2 years ago

    I am a male size 9 and 101/2 to 11 in womens sizes so can find stuff easily on the racks. I just adore wearing heels and own too many now lol. Be they pointy toe or open and strappy they all just feel divine to walk in. I like too wearing a pencil skirt to keep the strides small and perfectly fem

  30. Miriam 2 years ago

    I wear a size 12w. Torrid has some great styles. They are a friendly store and they fit well. Payless at times has a few exciting shoes. Recently I picked up a pair of very sexy ankle straps in red and they fit perfect. I’ve also been buying shoes at Lane Bryant and Catherines. I just picked up 2 pair of very sexy suede stilettos at Catherines for $18.00. I have a few local shoe stores near me that have larger size women’s shoes. I don’t buy over the net, because I have to try them on, because not all shoe companies use the same standard. Lane Bryant at times has some great deals on dresses and shoes, Catherines dresses and tops are cut to big. You need to try these clothes on. Catherines and Lane Bryant have no problem with you trying on their clothes and shoes. DSW has a very limited large size selection. Beacon Shoes also have some very cute styles. Aerosoles has a very nice wedge that is very cute and goes well with a skirt or slacks.

  31. Jesse Nicole(Smokey) 2 years ago

    I think most people buy their outfit first and then find shoes and bags to match. I Am exactly opposite. I buy the shoes first and then work my way up!

    • Yvonne 1 year ago

  32. tina 1 year ago

    • tina 1 year ago

  36. Charley mmmm 1 year ago

    As a larger individual I have become very disappointed in the styles and heel height that I find in my size I wear a 14/15 men’s that being said I am also 6’3 for it don’t come close to being feminine I weigh 300 and have a beard down to the middle of my chest. I have dressed since I discovered the sensation of leggs sheer elegance pantyhose hose. After a few years I had found mini skirts in combination with the pantyhose it was fantastic! While playing around in the cellar storage area I found my forever favorite heels in a box brand new it looked so wit great appreciation I slipped on those blue 3 inch sling back peep toe pumps. I have been looking for a lifetime it seems to find a sling back in combination with a peep toe that doesn’t have a 6 to 9 inch heel. I am already awkward in my five inch shoes but can’t really strut my girlfriend is always envious. But I don’t want to be almost 7 feet tall

    • Kim Cummings 1 year ago

      I found a nice selection of high heels in sizes up to 14 at snaz.com.

  38. Kim Cummings 1 year ago

    Beware of cheap items that are not of the best quality. It is better to pay a little more than get shoddy items.

  39. Jill sailmaker 1 year ago

    Classic pumps, pointed toe, 31/2-4″ heels….. I do have a certain type I just love. They make me feel so fem and sexy lovely, I wear a 9.5 woman’s……… I just don’t understand women today, you just don’t see very many that wear heels, a shame…… nothing to me is more womanly then high heels

  40. Kim Cummings 1 year ago

    Instead of carpets, I have put in wooden floors. The process of walking around in my 6 inch high heels on carpet is not easy. The sound of the high heels on hard floors is more endearing. I have confidence that I am quite sure how to walk around with these “killer heels” It is not easy, but with all the practice I’ve had, I have mastered the walk.

  41. If you are a size 12 or larger, have some patience, and like to scour the internet, then I would suggest Amazon. Once you are in the category of women/shoes, type in size 12, 13, or whatever. Your probably going to get over a 1000 hits. I usually do a sort by price (low to high) and open in another window the ones that I’m interested in. Many times they still aren’t any available in my size. Many times, I’ve found some great deals…shoes retailing for over $80 for less than $20. You might have to go with an odd color or style, but it’s a great way to try out some styles.

    I’ve also used eBay, but with a Prime membership on Amazon, I can usually get new for the price of someone else’s used. Occasionally, I nab a really good deal there as well. I wear a size 12-13 and need a more narrow shoe. Most of the shoes from Payless that I’ve bought have gone away. I don’t worry about either place sending me shoes that announce “I’m a crossdresser”. Amazon comes in their box, and most sellers on ebay recognize the need to be private.

    • Lisbeth Lacy 10 months ago

      I use Amazon Prime too. What I like about Prime is free two days shipping and no questions ask refunds which is so important when buying clothes and shoes . But the negative side of Prime is limited selections. For example I find a pair of heels exactly the style and size 10d. and it’s marked Prime so I click on the product to open and read the details, make my selection and purchase. But the Prime is limited to certain sizes and of course as usual the shoe size that I need is not marked as Prime.

  42. Kim Cummings 12 months ago

    All girls MUST HAVE A NICE COLLECTION OF HIGH HEELS! I LOVE THE WAY THEY LOOK AND LET ME KNOW THAT MY LEGS ARE NICE AND LONG LOOKING! THE POWER OF A PRETTY PAIR OF HIGH HEELS AND PANTYHOSE TOGETHER ARE AWESOME. THE EXCITEMENT AND THE SMOOTH AND SILKY LOOK GET THE ATTENTION OF ALL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE IN LOVE WITH THE VISUAL EFFECTS OF THE SENSUOUS FETISH FOR THE LEGS AND HIGH HEELS CLAD IN THE PANTYHOSE!

  43. Marissa 12 months ago

    My size is a mens 10.5 US, I fit size 42 UK or Size 12 US womens sizes. My instep is large and medium to wide feet.
    Here are some examples:
    Stuart Weitzman OTK 5050 Nappa Boot SIze 12, a half inch too large
    Tieks Flats Size 13, a half size too large, rubs above toes
    Tory Burch Flats, just right
    Jessica Simpson Claudette D’Orsay Pump Size 12, TTS
    Chloe Lauren Snakeskin Size 42, pinky toe hurts after 30 min of wear, need to widen
    Repetto Cendrillion Patent Size 42, does not fit period
    I like designer apparel and footwear because price is just a number. I do not mind gently used.

    Nordstrom has extend sizing, Nordstrom Rack has size 12 & 13, I have seen some 13’s that could be 14s

    Hello Everybody,

    I have found a fantastic, well established ladies shoe store in Parramatta, a suburb of Sydney – Australia. They are called Long Line Shoes and mainly cater for women who wear larger sizes but they are also very receptive to people like us.

    I went in there for the first time (more nervous than you could believe) and, after waiting outside for the customer to leave I entered and told the Sales Attendant that I wanted a pair of high heels! After getting that out (surprised myself) she asked me what size?? “Oh, I don’t know – they are for me” no problems, she sat me down and measured. Because I had socks on she produces some short stockings, takes my measurement and I walk out an absolutely joyful lady. After that I was wore stockings or panty hose to make it easy. They are wonderful, their shop is secluded and their prices are not inflated. I recommend Long Line Shoes, Sydney to any girl in the area and even if it’s you first go it’s not a problem. Just do it!

    I usually wear control top pantyhose because of the the support and figure enhancement​ even though I do have a nice figure. I simply like to feel the firm compression. My favorite brand is Berkshire. I usually select sheer nude or beige.

  47. Lisbeth Lacy 10 months ago

    I am fascinated with garter belts and thigh high hosiery. Pantyhose are sexy too as well as practical but garter belts & stockings are classic, retro, and very femme. My favorite style are the heavy duty garter belts or corsets with attached garters from the 1950’s. with Cuban style seamed stockings​. This style of lingerie is perfect to wear under your knee length pencil style dresses with black Mary Jane style heels for a retro 1950’s fashion statement. Watch an episode of Perry Mason or Mad men or watch a film noir movie from the 50’s to see the style that most attractive woman wore. Awesome time period for fashions

  51. Jen Jennings 6 months ago

    Size wise, the general rule is to add 2 sizes. In some instances, a 1.5 size difference works. Find true WW sizes, especially in larger sizes, is especially difficult …if…U do not want to get into the expensive category. Once in awhile, eBay might have a few listing in new, quality WW widths. Still, even if 1 selection is available, using the right search term is critical. Even with lingerie, simply using search term “satin teddy” did not identify the best – and incredible bargain lingerie available. I am not endorsing any sites; nor the KEY SEARCH terms, that I eventually found indirectly. Jen
