Today’s post is a collaboration with Long Tall Sally and I’m styling larger sized feet with some new sandals from the 2016 summer shoe collection. This is to coincide with the new campaign just launched at Long Tall Sally called If The Shoe Fits.
I was selected to work on this exciting If The Shoe Fits Campaign as it’s actually relevant to me. I do take a larger size shoe size myself not that I have really ever discussed my shoe size on the blog before now.
Being a size 41 (UK size 8 and a US 10), I usually take the biggest size in most brands. Sometimes I even find that some brands of shoes don’t fit at all. My feet actually were not always this size; I used to be a full size smaller before I had my twins. Then after I became a mum my feet were larger and stayed that way. This is a common thing to happen and after reading an interesting Infographic which contains the results of a survey taken by Long Tall Sally, I found out just how common it is.
What is also interesting is that a lot of women wear ill fitting shoes for one reason or another. The If the Shoe Fits Campaign is dedicated to finding the right fit shoes this summer.
Being tall, I don’t feel like my feet should be any smaller and they are perfectly in proportion with my silhouette, but it’s sometimes really frustrating when you can’t get the pretty shoes that you want to wear because they don’t have them in your size. A good pair of shoes is a real confidence booster for me.
Long Tall Sally stocks ladies footwear in sizes 7-13 which is rare in most other shops on the high street. I know I’m on the smaller scale of these sizes but I can only imagine how hard it is for women who take bigger shoe sizes to find the right shoes that are still on trend and feminine to create the look they want to achieve.
I was able to select a pair of shoes for myself from the high summer collection. My choice was the LTS Egypt Suede Lace Up Boots. Lace ups are a huge trend again this season and I had been looking for the perfect pair for some time so I was delighted when I saw these available.
I find that when styling larger sized feet, a mid heel flatters my feet whilst still being comfortable enough to wear all day. The raising of the foot by wearing a heel creates an elongated appearance to the leg and makes your feet look a little smaller. The lace up detail adds a current and trendy look to the whole outfit.
I hope you enjoy the post about styling larger shoe sized feet. I would like to know if any of you struggle to find a shoe that fits yourself, whether it be too big or too small. I would love for you to let me know in the comments section below.
