 Stylish Shoes For The Larger Foot 
At Upper Street our philosophy is that style is for everyone, even if you have large feet. Create your very own perfect pair of shoes for every occasion, in UK size 1-10, European size 33-44 and US size 3-13 with heel heights from 1.5" to 4.5".

You can choose from hundreds of different styles, materials and embellishments to create your unique pair of heels. Before you get started, here are some handy style tips and inspiring shoe designs to help you create the most flattering designs for large shoes....
Kick off your flats and choose high heels instead. Whilst many women who need large shoes shy away from high heels, they actually make your feet look smaller. The heeled silhouette breaks up the line of a big foot and the extra inches on the heel appear to shave inches from the length.

If you aren't used to tall stilettos, choose our feminine 1.5" or 3" mid heel peep toe. Another flattering option for large shoes is the platform. The built-up sole gives extra height that helps to conceal foot length and is actually easier to walk in than shoes with thinner soles.

Round toes are more flattering than pointy toes. Pointed styles tend to be close fitting.  This makes the foot look more slender, creating the illusion of extra length. Round toes are by far the most stylish choice for large shoes; they help to create more balanced proportions by emphasising the width.

Steer clear of fine strappy sandals. Shoes that expose a lot of naked foot can make your feet look larger. However, showing a bit of skin is certainly sexy. The golden rule is to choose the right kind of straps to flatter the larger foot. Horizontal straps have an amazing effect as they create a mid line across the foot helping to shorten it’s appearance by bringing the focus to the width. For a triple horizontal hit select our edgy triple strap.

Striking accents make feet look smaller. Interesting details such as our large structured bow, Swarkovski gem cluster and flower corsage all provide clever focal points that draw the eye away from the length of the foot. Select one of these fronts at the start of the design process. Embellishments such as diamante trim and gunmetal studs also provide eye-catching definition.

Dark coloured shoes work best. Just as dark colour clothes have a slimming effect, the same principle applies when choosing large shoes. But don’t limit yourself to black.  There are plenty of beautiful dark shades and tones to choose from in our extensive colur palette. Select from sultry greys, rich chocolates, deep purples and marine blues for beautiful shoes which flatter large size feet.

Experiment with multiple colours in our 3D design studio. Blocks of different colours will break up the line of the shoe creating the illusion of smaller feet.
