Too big for your boots?
When I worked on a magazine I used to get endless emails from readers looking for fashionable shoes in big sizes. I would harangue the shoe PRs on a regular basis to find out why their sizes stopped at an 8. ‘No room in the warehouse’ would come the rather unconvincing reply. Even today, when certain brands do trumpet that they go up to size 9, you can guarantee there are only a few styles in that size made and once they’re gone, they’re gone. So it’s nice to discover Angeline Tournier, whose shoes go up to size 10 and are properly fashionable. The range is quite small at the moment but is sure to go on to bigger things.
(PS, they start at size 3.)

Those are both very nice shoes, and I’m sure people with size 9 feet and above will appreciate having shoes by Angeline Tournier as options.

As someone who has endured the condescending looks from the Hobbs shop team. These shoes are a sight for sore eyes. Too often the larger sizes are dull beyond belief but not these!

I am a size 7 or 8 and I think it’s a lot easier for me to find shoes than previous generations. And I could end up a 9, because once your feet have stopped growing, the arches begin to flatten because we don’t wear properly supportive shoes. So you need to wear bigger sizes!

I am a huge fan of Angeline Tournier designer shoes and bags. They fit well, are very comfortable, and are super cute!
