Littles with big feet


MatchboxMaus

Recommended Posts

A big problem I've found with looking at stuff for littlespace is finding stuff that fits the bigger, less petite littles of the community. I know over the years more and more places are catering to plus size littles but there are still issues for taller littles or littles with bigger feet. One of the biggest problems, I've personally found is looking at sites (or even in some stores) and finding cool clothing options that can be used in littlespace (for me it has to be short sleeved/legged options because of height) but then looking for shoes to go with said items and finding out that the cute shoes that would be perfect for littlespace doesn't come in your size and the shoes that do come in your size are 9 times out of 10 really bland/boring.

I've noticed a lot of the more DDlg fashion/Kawaii oriented stores only do shoes that go up to US size 9 (UK size 7/ EU size 40) and I was wondering what about the littles with bigger feet than that, who want cute stuff too or even trans littles? I know there's probably not that many affected by it but it does seem a little sad

 

Am I the only one getting pout over nothing or has anyone else found this problem?

Heh. UK size 9 here....

 

Try getting any shoes in my size is hard. It's got better as I got older with more places stocking them so at least I can buy shoes... But the options are terrible.

 

I can't just go into a shop and buy cute things and I certainly can't go online without paying the price.

 

So yeah. It sucks.

I've not had this problem, but after a quick look around online I've found a handful of things. It would help if you said your size and the styles you're after, though. ^^ 

 

I first looked at eBay because I know you can sort by sizes there and they have tonnes of stuff. This is just one pair I found and am thinking of getting for myself. The quality may not be amazing but they are adorable and go up to a US size 12.5 :)https://www.ebay.com/itm/Womens-Shoes-Lolita-Mary-Jane-Sandals-Bowknot-Pump-Wedding-Cos-Strap-EUR50-Cute/352371383893?hash=item520af89e55%3Am%3AmUeMG9EdBljZVh10FLXZyiQ&var=621736264187

 

And I absolutely adore Pleasers. They're well made and super comfortable, and some of their styles come in bigger sizes too. I only had a small look but I found these which I find cute. https://www.beverlyheels.com/?name=SPRITE-02-Baby-Pink-Patent&product=1030381208

 

I'm a big believer in Converse going with everything. You could get some low tops and some of those socks with the frills and it would look super cute. ^^ I also think ballet flats or t bar school shoes would work well, and you can usually get those in bigger sizes in general shops (where I live, anyway). You could also try looking on the sissy clothing websites because they'll sell larger sizes. I'm sure there's a decent range out there if you look around. :)

Yayyy! These are super dooper gorgeous. Maybe I will treat myself. Thanks for doing that "research"  :D

 

Yes there ARE a lot of larger sized women's shoes available these days, but I've never seen any unicorn sneakers, little kitty logos, etc.  :(

Firstly, I hope you won't mind me saying this, just want to help all of us who are buying shoes:  Unfortunately, there is NO exact comparison between USA sizing, Continental/European, or UK. They are 3 unique measuring systems.  Mostly because some countries measurements are taken in cm and some in inches, and then rounded up or down. Thus a European 40 can be a 6-8 UK or 4-6 USA.

This is actually being discussed by international markets, being as so many people shop online, ship abroad, etc. There's a lobby for standardised sizing, but another lobby says it would confuse the local market. Hey ho...

 

So although we can have a rough idea, the ONLY way to be sure a shoe will fit is it to try it on. 

 

I recently bought a shoe which was advertised as a 9.5 USA which I knew would just about fit me as I'm a 10 USA.  When the shoe arrived, it wasn't a USA shoe, it was continental size 40 (usually more of a UK 7 and I am an 8). If it had been advertised correctly it would have said "size 40" but the website was in America and chose to assign an American size to the shoe. (If anyone is interested in having them, they are gorgeous flat mary jane lolitas, pink, bows, ankle strap etc.  Friend Request me for photos.)

 

Sorry for being a bit long winded. Which answers your 2nd question....no, you are not the only one who gets pouty about it! That's why I had to vent LOL. 

 

On a brighter note, at least more shoes are available in larger sizes now. I remember, as a child, when only one or two styles in the whole range would come in a size 8.  My friends would wander around the shop choosing what they liked and asking for their (small) size.  After repeated disappointments (..."that's not available in your size dear aka you're HUGE)"... I learnt to go directly to the shop assistant and ask "ok so what do you have in an 8 please?".  It was demoralising.

Thank you for the links, will check them out a little later. I am a UK size 8 in some shoes and a UK size in others. I've looked at sissy shoe sites in the past and although its much more likely that they will have my sizes, the shoes also tend to be more suited for older littles/middles as they tend to be cute heels and/or heeled boots. Mary Janes are awesome too, which a lot of sissy sites also cater too but it does make a change have different styles too. Dollskill tend to have cute varieties of shoes but it's a hit and miss on the sizes selling out. I remember an old friend buying a pair of Carebear boots from Dollskills (I can't see it on the site anymore) that came in a UK size 8, the only problem is Dollskill costs a lot of money then you have import taxes

Yeah, I've noticed on a couple sites have varying sizes on their websites but I included the sizes in my post because it tends to be the general theme I've noticed with a lot of stores. As a kid I had so many problems buying shoes because I had wide feet (I now just have tall and narrow feet) so I ended up having to buy from the boy's section and that can be quite limiting when the only options I had were sneakers or just really chunky shoes.

 

I reccently heard about a DDlg clothing website on Tumblr which kinda sparked the debate even more. They have a plus size section for clothing on their website (found under "more") but when it comes to shoes, they have some really cute designs with Hello Kitty and Unicorns and Dinosaurs but there sizes don't run past what I'm guessing is a US size 9. It would be nice if places recognised that there are some people with bigger feet that do like cool designs on shoes too not just one set style or colour
