Where can I get size 13 shoes?

28th July 2008

Where can I get size 13 shoes? Lawrence contacts SmartGeezer and poses a sizeable dilemma:

SmartGeezer, you seem pretty up on wear to shop, but can you solve this? I’m a size 13 shoe, needless to say shopping for footwear is no fun for me. Know of any websites that not only sell big sizes, but also styles someone might actually want to put on there feet? Maybe even branded shoes and trainers? Help!

You know what they say about men with big feet, right? It’s a bitch to find shoes online. I’ve sent the Smartgeezer slave elves out into the far reaches of the internet to hunt down size 13 shoes which are half decent for a Smartgeezer such as Lawrence. Working on the basis of coming home empty handed means no food, water or shelter, they search high and low. Did they find enough sites to feed themselves and their little elf children?

Find out below:

Cloggs – Not a great line up unless hiking boots flip your lid.

Extreme Pie – Going to have to hunt around this surf/skate store but there’s a few pairs available in 13.

Jones The Bootmakers – Loads of shoes but this search for size 13 brings up some size 46 (UK 12) so you may have to hunt around for size 47’s.

Shoes International – Do a search for ‘size 13′ here, they got a bunch of smart shoes.

SportsShoes.com – A big selection of big sports shoes.

Totally Shoes – Has a few Converse and others but annoyingly brings up Child size 13’s too.

Walk Tall – I think this is more commonly known in the trade as ‘The Motherload’. Over 300 styles for you to sink your excessive plates of meat into my old son!

Hope that helps you out a little in finding some decent shoes for you. Thanks for your email, you now get two entries into the Gouldy’s tshirt prize draw for your troubles, the slave elves get fed and you help provide a useful post for others with size 13’s…a good day’s work.

We can now all take the weight off our feet and veg out in front of the TV.

    Finding size 13 isn't really a problem in the U.S. I guess we're just bigger here. And I don't mean fat (though we are that too).

    Yeah, I think there's more of a market for big feet over there, that's why there's more of the Big & Tall type stores over there too. The most common upper limit here is size 12….finding 13's and up is much harder. But the slave elves did a good job :)

    walk tall always seems to come up trumps, and not over priced. Am quite sick of walking into shoe shops and asking ‘what they have in size 13,’ not even choosing a style first, even the great british M&S stops at 12, surely we are not in a tiny minority!

    Is self promotion okay in the comments? If you’re into skate shoes then we usually have a reasonable selection in size 13 (around 60 styles in stock at time of writing): http://www.vapourised.com

    Hi! There is a new website with recommendations of online shops selling shoes in large, small and wide sizes and clothes to tall, short and plus-sized people, i.e. for all of us who are not shaped in a “standard size”. The address is http://www.sizes4you.com.

    I know Barratts, Marks and Spencer, Nike and a few other high street/online stores now go up to size 13! I found a list of sites I hadn’t considered before at http://www.sizeshoe.co.uk but the list is quite short!
