Finding comfortable wedding shoes in large sizes can be a challenge. Here, we share our best tips for finding shoes that fit perfectly all evening, whether you wear size 12 or 18.

The Challenge of Finding Comfortable Wedding Shoes in Large Sizes

As someone with size 14 feet, I know how difficult it can be to find stylish and comfortable shoes for special occasions like weddings. You want to look elegant on the dance floor without having to suffer in tight shoes! Unfortunately, the selection of dress shoes in large sizes is often limited, and many stores have little to nothing to offer those of us with bigger feet.

But don't worry - there is hope! With the right knowledge and a little extra effort, it is possible to find amazing wedding shoes even for those of us with large feet. Here are my best tips:

Choose the Right Style and Model for Maximum Comfort

When it comes to comfortable wedding shoes, the choice of style and model is crucial, especially in large sizes. Some things to consider:

  • Avoid narrow and pointed toes that can squeeze the toes together. Instead, opt for spacious, round, or square toe boxes.
  • Make sure the shoe has a stable and supportive construction around the heel and instep.
  • Choose a model with a moderate heel height. Too high heels can become uncomfortable in the long run, especially if you have heavier feet.
  • Consider shoes with a strap over the instep or laces for adjustable fit and extra support.

Personally, I prefer [[brand]]derbys[[brand]] or [[brand]]monks[[brand]] for weddings - they are both stylish and comfortable, even after hours on the dance floor!

Materials Matter for Comfort

In addition to style and fit, the choice of materials is important for the shoes to be comfortable all evening. Here are some guidelines:

  • Soft and supple high-quality leather is usually the best choice. It molds to the foot.
  • Breathable materials like [[brand]]canvas[[brand]] or [[brand]]suede[[brand]] can be nice if you easily get warm feet.
  • Avoid hard, stiff materials that don't provide any flexibility.
  • Make sure the shoe has a soft, padded insole for shock absorption and comfort.

I recommend investing in quality shoes from reputable brands. They cost a bit more but are often well worth the money in the long run, both in terms of style, fit, and durability.

Try the Shoes on Properly Before Buying

Trying on the shoes properly before deciding is extra important when you have large feet and the selection is limited. Here's how I go about it:

  • Walk around in the shoes in the store, feel if they pinch anywhere or chafe.
  • Try sitting down, standing up, and walking around in the shoes for a while to assess comfort.
  • Feel with your finger inside the shoe - is there plenty of room at the toes and heel?
  • Try on shoes in the afternoon when your feet are at their largest. Then you know they will fit even after a long day.

Don't hesitate to ask for help and advice from knowledgeable store staff. They can guide you right among the different models and sizes.

Prepare Your Feet for the Wedding

Even with comfortable shoes, you may need to prepare your feet a little extra before a long day at a wedding. My best tricks:

  • File away calluses and corns well in advance to avoid blisters.
  • Use foot cream regularly the week before to soften the skin.
  • Cut your nails a day or two before the wedding.
  • On the wedding day, use a thin layer of [[brand]]Vaseline[[brand]] on places where shoes often chafe to prevent blisters.
  • Bring bandages or [[brand]]Compeed[[brand]] in your wedding bag in case of an emergency.

With these preparations, you increase the chances of a really comfortable wedding day, even for your feet!
