19 Pairs of Large Size Shoes for Under $50

Scoring cute shoes under $50 is no easy feat, especially when you wear a hard-to-find size. Sam Riedel broached this issue in a recent piece for Autostraddle, noting that Payless is “the only store to ever sell women’s size 11 shoes at a price point low-income trans chicks can afford.” While that’s hardly hyperbole (and Payless does have a lot of cute stuff right now), I’ve managed to track down a few more options! Below, 19 pairs of flats, sandals, and pumps up to at least a size 13 — all for under $50, and many with additional coupon codes for on-site savings.

  1. <3. i'm a cis woman with size 14 (US)/12 (UK)/46 (EU) feet. I used to only be able to find the most ridiculous large size shoes online before (the kind a drag queen would only wear while performing at a bar). I'm so happy some businesses are flourishing in this niche market (even though a lot of them chose to stop their sizes a size JUST under mine!).

    the hardest though is to find QUALITY shoes at that size. A lot of them are sort of poorly made sadly, and are either really uncomfortable to wear or will only last for half a season before breaking down :(

    • A good example is Long Tall Sally, whose shoes used to be not really well made. They’ve really fixed that problem and now make super cute, really sturdy shoes :D

      For non north-americans, LTS is from the UK, and ships pretty much anywhere (although free returns are only available in limited countries sadly).

      • I did not know about LTS until you mentioned it. Thank you, thank you, thank you <3. It's nice that they carry a few sizes above mine, which is some much needed flexibility in my shoe choosing. I've often foregone trying to find a larger at size at places like DSW and suffered through wearing a pair of shoes until they "broke in" some. That really doesn't work when you definitely need the next size up.

    • I am US 12/EU 44 and have the same problem, but also might have wisdom to share:
      – Shoes of Prey have been fairly good quality in my experience and offer both size and width custom sizing (everything is custom).
      – Torrid shoes used to be horrible quality but have gotten way, way better. Years ago I had many instances of their wedges coming apart between the sole pad and the heel but the pairs I have bought in the last year have seemed much better constructed.

  2. thank you so much!! someone i care about a lot just came out and they’re always looking over my shoulder when i window shop online and hinting at shoes they like, then being disappointed their size isn’t available. their birthday is coming up next month so yay :)
