A beautiful pair of shoes can give you a boost of confidence — and make you feel extra feminine.
But do you struggle to find stylish shoes in your size?
In this article, I share my top shoe shopping recommendations for crossdressers and transgender women (or anybody with feet US size 13 or larger!).
But first, what’s your shoe size?
Before you go on a shoe shopping spree, you must know your size. To convert between men’s and women’s shoe sizes, simply add 2 sizes to your usual men’s shoe size. For example, a men’s US size 11 would be women’s US size 13.
To convert between US and international shoe sizes, check out this shoe size chart.
Now let’s shop!
Long Tall Sally
The ultimate shopping destination for tall women, Long Tall Sally has shoes for every occasion in US size 10-15. Best of all? They are an international e-commerce site, offering service and shipping within the US, UK, EU, and Australia.
UPDATE (October 7, 2020): At the time of this update, Long Tail Sally has changed ownership. The current stock is being sold off in preparation for new products. We will continue to monitor the site for more news.
