Since moving to San Francisco from Australia, the hunt for larger sized shoes has become a lot easier with popular department stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s all carrying great brands up to a size 13. But where is the fun in shopping in big lacklustre department stores? I am determined to not bow down to convenience when my personal style usually sides with the little guys. Independent designers, thinkers and creators, who commit themselves to handmade craftsmanship and bespoke practices resulting in edgy, beautiful, on-trend shoes in above average sizes. This post is dedicated to SHARING some of my favourite more independent shoe sources for those out there who, like me, love a great pair of shoes from outside of the box!
