RubriqueFind the Perfect Dress Shoes for Large Feet

Finding stylish dress shoes for large feet can be a challenge. At Grand Shoes, we provide tips on what to consider and how to find shoes that fit your style and size.

The Challenge of Finding Dress Shoes in Large Sizes

For those of us with large feet, finding attractive dress shoes can be a real challenge. Many shoe stores have a limited selection in larger sizes, and the available models are not always the most appealing. But don't worry, there is hope! With the right knowledge and a little patience, you can find the perfect dress shoes, whether you wear a size 46 or 55.

I remember how frustrating it was to shop for shoes for my first suit. Store after store sent me home empty-handed, and the few options I found were neither stylish nor comfortable. But over the years, I've learned some important things that I want to share with you.

Choose the Right Model for Your Foot Size

The first step is to choose a shoe model that fits your foot. When you have large feet, it's important to pay extra attention to the fit. Avoid shoes with a narrow toe, as they will only pinch and cause pain. Instead, opt for a roomier last with a rounded or square toe. Derby models are often a good choice, as they have an open lacing that provides more room for the foot.

Monk shoes are another option worth considering. They have a strap with a buckle instead of laces, which makes them suitable even for higher insteps. Loafers can also work well, especially if you have a narrower foot. Choose a model with a slightly longer toe for the best comfort.

Materials and Details That Flatter Large Feet

When it comes to materials, invest in quality. Choose shoes made of genuine leather, preferably full-grain. It molds to the foot and only gets better with age. Avoid shiny materials that draw attention to the size of the shoe. Matte or brushed leather is more flattering for large feet.

Pay attention to details such as seams and decorations. Choose shoes with discreet seams in the same color as the leather. Avoid contrasting seams or too much embroidery and patterns, as they can make the foot look larger. Thinner leather soles are also preferable to thick rubber soles.

Colors and Shades That Work

When it comes to color, opt for classic shades like black, dark brown, and oxblood. They are timeless choices that work with most suits. Avoid light colors that draw attention to the feet. If you want some variation, try darker shades of navy or green.

Also, consider matching the shoes with the color and style of the suit. Black shoes are a given with a black suit, while brown shades go well with blue and gray suits. For a blazer and trousers combination, you can be a little bolder in your shoe choice, perhaps a pair of dark red or nicely patinated brogues?

Shoe Tips for Best Comfort and Fit

Finding the right size is key for comfort. Always try on the shoes and walk around in them for a while before making a decision. Make sure there is a little extra room in the toe, but not so much that the foot slides around. Width is just as important as length. Many brands offer shoes in different widths, so find out if you need an M, W, or even WW last.

Use a shoehorn to avoid stepping down the back of the shoe when putting them on and taking them off. Invest in quality socks made of breathable natural materials to prevent blisters. If you have insoles, bring them with you when trying on shoes to ensure you get the right size. And don't forget to take care of your shoes! Regular cleaning, waterproofing, and polishing extend their lifespan and keep them looking great longer.
