I have difficult feet. They are far from tiny and elegant, and they are quite wide too. Like flippers. But that’s all good, cause I’m an excellent swimmer, and my shoe addiciction is ridiculous enough as it is at the moment… If I had normalsized feet, I would probably have 600 shoes and live in a box on the street. I know shopping for shoes can be a bit of a bitch when you’re plussize, so let me point you in the right direction! These are all from Asos, but no worries if you’re not used to shopping with them, I buy stuff from them at lmeast twice a month and I’ll explain at the bottom of the post why you might want to give it a go. Here are 5 wide fit ankle boots I’m currently digging. A LOT.
Velvet is supermegahot right now. I’m keeping my velvet addiction on the low, I only have 4 dresses so far, but I might expand my little velvet mania with this velvet ankle booties. A perfect alternative to regular black ankle boots, to give an easy but fun touch to basic outfits… or to go all out with a partydress ofcourse! Shop them here, they go up to a size 9 (that’s a wide fit size 42 for you EU babes… although, as I will explain below, they fit like a 43)
Continuing my suede journey, how completely amazeballs are these suedette sockboots with plexi heels?The great thing about this model is that the stretchy material makes it perfect for all types of ankles, so even if you have heavier ankles, these will still fit like a dream and not cut into your flesh (been there done that). Find them here.
Speaking of statement ankle boots, how fun are these silver glitter ones? Imagine how beautiful the world would be if we all wore glittershoes every now and then. So make the world a better place, and buy these beauties here.
I can’t make it through winter (you know… from a fashion point of view…) without flat ankle boots. These ones are so incredibly cute, I love this shiny detail at the toes and the zipper on top. I bet this pair looks cute with both skirts and pants, so high five for versatility! Shop these cuties here.
Oh, and if these ones weren’t perfect enough already… They also come in silver, hah! With prices like that, you don’t have to chose… just get both :p.
How to shop shoes online at Asos
I know a lot of women who prefer to try things on in store before buying them. Believe it or not, I am the same way! I love touching the material and feeling how something fits. However, if I limit myself to what I find in store, with my size and shape, I either have to settle for safe and boring options, or I have to drive a long way to go to a specialist shop that probably also only carries boring and safe stuff (except more of it). So not being able to try something on is a price I am willing to pay, because when I shop online I have sooo many options in soooo many different styles…
Shopping shoes online can be a bit scary at first, but one of the reasons why I love Asos is because they make it so easy. Delivery is free and relatively quick, returns are free and also relatively quick. You can see the products from different angles, and they even have a little video so you can see it even better. They have a lot reasonably priced items, so if you’re in doubt just order 2 different sizes and send the other one back when you’ve decided.
The shoes listed above go up to a size 9 (as do a lot of shoes at Asos). That is a EU42 (a size that is already difficult to find in most stores). They fit true to size or even a little bit on the bigger side, especially in wide fit. So even if you are a EU43, go ahead and try it :).
Happy shopping girls!
