The Tall Girl Guide to Shoes & Shoe Sizing

Whether you’re ready to rock some heels, strut yourself in sneakers or feel fly in flats, this blog is the place to be for tall women. 

Whatever style speaks to you (and if it's all of them, we aren't judging), we know that shopping for shoes as a tall woman with larger feet can be frustrating. At shops, bigger sizes are often out of stock or simply don’t exist. 

This guide highlights some of our favorite shoes that are made in wider fits and larger sizes, so you can step out in style in the perfect pair, every day. 

These Boots Are Made For Walking 

Boots are an autumn and winter staple. Do you have yours yet? We have a wide selection of boots for women in varying lengths and heights. So, whether you’re looking for everyday boots or something a little sassier, we have it. 

Tall Boots

Over-the-thigh boots can be hard to pull off. But not for us tall women! While some over-the-thigh boots may swallow up a short woman's legs by reaching her hips, they can flatter and accentuate long limbs. What a win!

Knee highs are a great option if over-the-thigh boots aren't your thing or aren't the vibe of your outfit. These allow you to show a little more leg and highlight your features! Knee highs are great with dresses, skirts or pants:

How To Find Your Solemate   

Every single foot is unique and requires attention before slipping into the perfect shoe and sizing. Below are some tips to help find your solemate. 

    1. Always measure your feet. Your foot size and shape can change over time! This is due to many different factors like age, pregnancy, weight gain, and fluid retention. Be sure to measure your feet in the late afternoon, as this is when they tend to be their largest due to swelling. 
    2. Measure feet when standing. To obtain an accurate measurement, measure your feet from the very back of your heel to the longest toe and find the width by measuring across the widest part of your foot. 
    3. Be wary of different-sized feet. You might be surprised to learn that many people have one foot that is larger than the other, so be sure to make measurements of both your left and right foot. Your shoes should fit your larger foot, as adjustments can be done to help size the shoe for the smaller foot.
    4. Check for space at the back of the shoe. With your shoe on, stand and feel for reasonable space, approximately the width of your finger, between your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
    5. Give it time. Sometimes, when you first put on a pair of shoes, they seem perfectly comfortable. But after wearing them for a while, you may feel tension meaning they may be a little too small. 

Shoes Your Own Adventure

Shoes are that final touch for any outfit. You should love them—and they should fit properly! If you have been struggling to find shoes that speak to your style in your correct size, we hope this guide has helped and that you can enjoy adding to your shoe cupboard by placing an order now!
