Sandals are often difficult to find in sizes larger than 10 or in wide-widths in the brick-and-mortar stores of most towns. And: the few options that are available are often very basic. Since the average foot size of American women is getting larger and wider, it is fortunate that is not the case on-line with both shoe specialty super-stores and apparel retailers catering to the demand for more sizes in a greater number of styles and trends.

 

Shoe stores, in particular, understand the need to try on several pairs for the right fit and have gotten in the habit of offering customers free shipping, sometimes both ways. The shoe super-stores also frequently have active customer feedback sections and extra information regarding fit to help shoppers make informed decisions before ordering.

European sizes often give slightly more width equivalent to an American D width, rather than a C, although not as much as our wides that tend to be E width. The exception are Italian labels which often run narrower than American shoes. Some women find they can get enough extra width by going up a size (or even two) in some shoe styles when wide-widths are not available.   This strategy works for slides, mules and open back sandal styles better than for others unless ankle straps are minimal and very adjustable.

Casual sandals are summer or resort wear options that mix with trendy, classic, and BoHo trends.  Mixing well with cute shorts, crops, and capri pants, in addition to maxi dresses and other casual warm weather styles, heels can run the gamut from flat to wedge and higher heels.

Dress sandals are sought for formal looks including special occasions such as prom, and weddings.
