Being of the very averagely foot-sized demographic of 7.5, I never thought about the fact that some people can't buy their shoes at a store. Then I was tasked with finding size 14 womens shoes for a man. Yes, I am deep in costuming for Hairspray at this point and the things I need to find are getting more and more odd. First, a "buty pant". Next, the largest bra I could find at Wal-Mart. Hairdresser's capes that can be worn as dresses. And yes, these very hard-to-find shoes. You would think I was costuming Priscilla, Queen of the Desert!
I finally found them, not on Payless.com, not on Zappos.com or even on Amazon.com. I found them on Sears.com! Who would have thought that Sears carries a whole line of shoes also to be found in online drag queen boutiques?
Sadly, they didn't have both the sizes I needed, but I traced them to another site, janetscloset.com. Besides the fact that Bordello makes up to size 14 as well as regular sizes, they make some really cute shoes...Funtasma was a cute brand that popped up a lot as well.
P.S. - I did eventually find them on Amazon as well and 6pm.com carries larger sizes too.
