How big are we talking? And what kind of shoe? My mom wears an 11 and likes Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack. They carry a lot of Sam Edelman, which goes up to a 13. They go on sale a lot too, and you can usually find some good stuff in the more uncommon sizes. I can vouch for the pumps at least being comfortable.
I'm also a half size, a 7.5, so when I buy stuff on sale it's usually something that doesn't REALLY fit me but I justify it because it's cheap. Also, yeah, if something is on sale and available in my size it's usually because no one wants it. I wear the same two pairs of heels for professional settings where I know I'll be on my feet a lot, one pair of Cole Haan platforms that honestly aren't super professional, and the Sam Edelman pumps. Heels that don't fucking kill are expensive, if anyone has any recommendations that aren't Clarks or Naturalizer I'm all ears.
For shoes that stay on your feet, what about slingbacks? I have a pair of Seychelles slingback flats that were no problem during a game of tag with my nephews (AND were on sale in a half size!).
Also, hello Girl Thread. I was going to post this in the "Why was your day good" thread but it seems more fitting here. I'm extremely happy with the Mondrian-inspired manicure I got this weekend. Please share your favorite nail art, whether it's something you did or if you just like it.
