Best Designer Size 12 Shoes

Shoes | Size 12 Favorites 
What are some of your go-to brands for size 12 shoes? Let’s be honest – size 12 boots and shoes are a little bit harder to find than smaller standard sizes 6-10. However, tons of great designers are realizing that this small market has plenty of women who want fashionable size 12 shoes and comfortable and stylish boots size 12.

There are tons of great places to buy size 12 shoes online and you can start with behemoths like Endless and Zapoos – both make it incredibly easy to search for your shoes by designer, by size, by color, by heel height and style.

One of our absolute favorite shoe designers that thankfully is making incredibly women’s size 12 shoes and boots is Jeffrey Campbell. Jeffrey Campbell shoes have that something extra. They are edgy without being too extreme. Jeffrey Campbell boots are particularly spectacular – favorites being the engineer boot called the Wishlist boot. Jeffrey Campbell makes high heeled boots, low-heeled boots, flat boots and various boot heights. If you are looking for great over-the-knee boots, Jeffrey Campbell boots are some of the best OTK boots available today. All of the styles are definitely on-trend and get noticed.

For more classic styles, Stuart Weitzman makes beautiful size 12 shoes. Heels, boots and flats are all adequately represented by Stuart Weitzman shoes. These shoes tend to be on the pricey side so they may be more of an investment. If you want shoes that will last forever, this is one designer whose workmanship you can count on. The styles offered tend to be classic looking so most of them could stand the test of time and season. You’ll be able to pull the size 12 black riding boot out of the closet five years from now and it will still look chic. Stuart Wietzman shoes are available online at many shoe retailers including but definitely not limited to Zappos and Nordstrom. Comfortable high heels with some support and good craftsmanship can be expected.

Nine West shoes are affordable and offer tons of pretty and sexy styles. With most of their shoes coming it at under $100, Nine West shoes tend to be a great value. If you are looking for a basic pair of pumps, stilettos, sandals, flats or boots – Nine West has them. They don’t tend to be as fashion forward with their styles but they stick with the trends in addition to the basics so you will be stylish without feeling like a victim to trends.

Unlike Stuart Weiztman shoes, you probably won’t be able to wear your Nine West shoes forever. Nine West makes good quality but not of the exceptional quality of the more expensive shoes.

Another beloved designer that makes size 12 shoes is Steve Madden. Unfortunately, this blog doesn’t love Steve Madden anymore. After a bad customer service experience, Steve Madden boycott is in effect. The Steve Madden brand encompasses a lot of shoes – Madden Girl, Steven by Steve Madden, and Steve Madden shoes. The shoes are definitely on-trend, often knock-offs of more expensive shoes and shoes that you see on the runway. For example, when a beautiful pair of silver peep-toe Jimmy Choo shoes was featured on Sex in the City several years ago, Steve Madden made a copy and obviously sold it for a fraction of the price. Many lower priced designers do this with great success. We can’t all afford Jimmy Choo shoes! Steve Madden shoes are decent quality and a fair price. The Steven shoes are a bit more expensive and the styles are usually more luxe and of slightly better quality.

If for some reason you have a problem with the shoes, even right after you buy them, don’t expect Steve Madden to help. Their customer service was terrible. After having bought many pairs of Steve Madden shoes, I expected better when I spent over $300 on a pair of boots that came with a WRONG detachable piece. After trying in store, on the phone and via email – the customer service message was clear. No help, no resolution from Steve Madden. But, they do make size 12 shoes so make your own decisions. I, for one can’t see spending money at a company that doesn’t care if I’m happy with my purchase when THEY made the error.

Which have you worn? Do you have Jeffrey Campbell shoes to be your style? Do you prefer the more classic and luxe Stuart Weitzman shoes? Do you find that Nine West Shoes offer a better value and great styles? Have you tried any of the Madden Shoes? What is your favorite size 12 shoes designer? Which designer do you wish made size 12 shoes?
