Where to Buy Boots Size 12

Where to Buy Boots Size 12

If you have struggled to find beautiful size 12 boots, read further. Previously, it seemed that size 12 shoes were all dowdy and matronly or in that “comfort shoe” category. Fortunately a few great designers have taken notice and created gorgeous shoes in larger sizes so that people wearing larger than a size 10 can buy on-trend and fashion forward shoes and boots.

Here are a few of the best websites to find size 12 boots this season:

Check out Endless. Endless, as the name suggests has a huge supply of boots and shoes in every size, style, color, and heel height. You can find affordable shoes and high end designer shoes all in one place. It is incredibly easy to search for size 12 boots with their excellent search features. They allow you to narrow your search by size and then by many other categories including price, color, style, heel height, brand, and width.

Zappos is another favorite shoe shopping resource. Zappos also has an impressive collection of shoes and offers plenty of stylish options for size 12 shoes and boots. The site is also very easy to search and offers cool video clips where you can see the shoes you are interested in on a person and up close from every angle. This is an awesome feature. You also will find reviews of many of the shoes and boots on the site where other customers rate how they felt about the shoe quality, wearability and most importantly – fit. People will point out if the boots felt true to size or wide or if they hurt after wearing for a long day. Zappos also offers incredible customer service and a great shipping and return policy.

Barefoot Tess is a bit more under the radar but is a fantastic resource for size 12 shoes. They actually specialize in and only sell shoes larger than a size 10 and often get exclusives on certain shoes and boots in the larger sizes. The search features are not as great as the other larger sites. The return policy is also not as generous as an Zappos or Endless but is fair and reasonable. The main reason to choose Barefoot Tess is because they have a stellar selection of fashion forward shoes and boots that you don’t normally see in larger sizes. Where else can you find Chie Mihara size 12 shoes and Jeffrey Campbell shoes in a 12? They tend to have some off-the-beaten path designer offerings that make them special. Barefoot Tess also has its own stylish and affordable in house collection offered on their site.

There are some other places to check out for size 12 shoes. Surprisingly, Nordstrom has a decent selection of size 12 shoes and boots on their website. Nordstrom offers cheap shipping and has a generous return policy allowing you to return to their stores as well as by mail. You will also find reviews on the Nordstrom website to help you decide if the boots you are looking at will work for you. They also carry some really fun, fashion forward designers and some trendy boots for the season.

Some designers that tend to make boots that work for size 12 are Fitzwell boots and Fitzwell Shoes, Annie, J. Renee and Stuart Weitzman. Many other designers make select boots and shoes in size 12 so don't be discouraged until you've given it a good search for the boots you want. 

I would bypass Macys, Piperlime and Kohl’s as they didn’t seem to have size 12 boots available when we searched. You can also find some cheap boots on ebay both new and used.
What are your favorite stores that have size 12 boots?
