My mom has size 11 feet and she loves shoes. She says that she feels obligated to buy them if they fit and feel good because the size is so hard to find in general.

I wish I had suggestions for you, but she doesn't buy designer shoes in general. Good luck, though.

Hi! I got good news for you! I've been to this site and they actually do sell large sizes shoes and best of all they are the high end stuff and still better yet they are not at the full retail price! I've just checked out the site for you and I do see Manolo Blahnik shoes in size 41, I used to see Chanel shoes in size 41 too but I guess they're sold out for now...anyways the website's address is:

The site main page is at http://www.jadeboutique.com

If you want to hit their Manolo Blahnik section directly then visit this link:

http://manolo-blahnik-shoes.jadeboutique.com

Hope this helps =)

Abby

I thought size 41 is size 10? A lot of shoes that I looked at that have European sizing say 41=10... I'm confused now.

I think sizing depends on the designer... Manolo does tend to run a bit small.

I feel for all because i get frustrated too by the lack of nice designer shoes. I have the same exact problem. I wear a size (8-9 UK) or size 11b US. I have to search hard and spend hard to acquire nice designer shoes. I buy Gucci who fortunately has 11 as their largest.

Manolo Blahnik runs small and i have been told size 41 is a size 10, therefore would come up small. I have a pair of chanels in a size 12(they run small too) and they fit perfectly. I guess it will be trial and error.

Jimmy choo apparently runs true to size, so its possible you can try them at

Jimmychoo.com
Gucci.com


Gina (of London) does custom made and has occasionally size 9(42) but its another game of get /call there first.

A lot of designers have their sizes available in larger sizes online.. but I definitely feel for size 11s. Maybe some day designers will realize that there is a customer out there who wishes they could wear their shoes, but can't because of size problems.

I have seen a number of designers with size 41, 41.5 and even 42(Blahnik). But they never last very long. The women with feet this size and is lucky enough to have deep pockets snatch them up rather quickly I assume.

Are Zanotti's and Louboutin's true to size or do they run small also?

Ok I just did another check: Dolce & Gabanna, Blahnik, Zanotti, Dior, Burberry all have shoes that go up to 12/42.

I'm sooo happy I no longer have this problem! After loosing 14 kg my shoe size also dropped a number

But before that I always bought whatever I saw in my size. And I didn't see much.

Sorry no store recommendations, you don't have those crappy shoe stores we have here

Good luck!

I tried on my first pair of "designer shoes", the Marc Jacobs satin ballet flats and the Burberry ballet flats in a size 10. I might be a size 10.5 or 11 in designer shoes cause they fit kind of tight
