A beautiful pair of shoes or high heels can instantly make you feel more feminine and attractive.
But do you struggle to find stylish women’s shoes in your size?
In this article, I share my top shoe shopping recommendations for transgender women and crossdressers (or anybody with feet that are US women’s size 13 or larger!).
How to convert a men’s shoe size to a women’s shoe size (US sizes)
Before you go on a shoe shopping spree, you must know your correct women’s shoe size.
- To convert between US 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.
Now that you know your shoe size, let’s go shopping!
Long Tall Sally
The ultimate shopping destination for tall women, Long Tall Sally offers large size women’s shoes up to a US size 15. This UK based e-commerce site offers service and shipping within the US, UK, EU, and Australia.
While Pleaser Shoes prides itself on being the leader in sexy footwear, they offer a range of styles – from sexy to classic and pinup to goth. Most importantly, they offer women’s shoes up to a size 16.
FSJ Shoes is a China-based shoe manufacturer that offers a huge array of styles up to a size 15 US. Best of all, they also offer custom made shoes at affordable prices so you can make any shoe dream come true!
Being the largest online shoe shop, it should come as no surprise that Zappos offers a wide range of shoes for women with big feet. Zappos also has a generous one-year return policy that includes free return shipping.
Amazon has a surprising large selection of women’s shoes up to size 16, including pumps, flats, sandals, boots, and more. As an added bonus, many items are eligible for Prime delivery and free returns.
Who doesn’t love a good deal? While Payless only offers women’s shoes up to a size 13, they are a great option for affordable footwear if your feet are on the smaller side.
Let’s not forget about good old eBay! Ebay has a huge selection of transgender and crossdressing shoes at some incredible bargains. The best part is that you can search for women’s shoes up to a size 19!

I get my 13WW shoes from Torrid.com. I’ve gotten everything from patent maryjanes to wedge sandals with 4” heels to Wonder Woman trainers there. Their sizes run same same. I wear a 13 in mens shoes as well.
I find Amazon and Zappos too unreliable, they seem to return a lot of items outside the search parameters — although I did get a lovely pair of ballet flats from Amazon.
I’m definitely going to look into these other outlets, thanks for sharing them!
Ebay was the best place to find some very good items.
Got some real Louboutin for very interesting price.
But I’m lucky, I just fit US size10 or UK size8
Hey, Girls (by the way, Swedish hei is used as a greeting)
Thank You for all the great tips!
I’ve been leery of online shoe shopping, but should take the plunge sometime or other.
One of my favorite sources is Nordstrom’s Rack. More limited choices, but the shoes are good-looking, and not very expensive.
Alas, in most stores (including my favorite, Goodwill), the large sizes tend to be boring, drab, uninteresting. But thankfully, not always.
I’m a men’s 10-1/2 W or 11, and women’s 12W, or sometimes just 12, works. My local skating rink does not go up to women’s 12, so I have to ask for men’s 11. They seem to be used to it. I have wide toes, narrow heels (just like dear old mom), and like to call them “duck feet”.
I’ve been seeking white, moderate heel boots for quite a while, but still haven’t found what I want. I saw something on Nordstrom’s site, but haven’t checked it out yet.
Careful, it’s easy to overdo shoes. I know, I know, you can never have too many, but yes, you CAN overdo it!
Another great source for shoes is also Justfab.com. I have bought the majority of my shoes and boots from them, and they are very affordable. Of course, Amazon can be a decent place to find shoes, but nothing beats the in-store experience for shoe shopping, also thrift stores can hold some gems but usually they are found in the mid-sizes.
My collection consists of 8 pair of boots, 4 pair of pumps, 2 pair of flats and 4 pair of house shoe/fuzzy/furry boots all in 10.5-11…yes I have small feet for a 6ft tall person.
Loveyours clothes shops in England do shoes up to size 12. I purchase all my shoes from them, and they have sales on. knee length boots I purchased a couple of years ago, for £19,99.
Hei,minulla on 39 jalka,joten löytyy naisten kenkä valikoimista .
I have found that onlymaker is a great source for shoes…they cater to men(trans, cd, etc) in high heels so carry larger sizes and they are not super pricey.
The add 2 sizes in converting men’s to women’s sizes in not completely accurate. I sold shoes for about 6 years going through high school through graduate school. For example, I wear a men’s size 11 in a C width when available. Most of my women’s shoes are 11 wide. The only 12s I buy are for boots and athletic shoes.
Women’s feet have gotten larger over the years. My daugher in law and 14 year old granddaughter both wear 11s. They are in for quite an inheritence when I kick off. I remember unpacking the boxes when we received a new line of shoes. Typically, we received two each in size 10 and 4. We would get three each of 9s and 5’s. Sizes 5 1/2-8 1/2 would be the majority of the order. I imagine the stores now order less really small sizes and a few more 11s.
