Can we please have a shoe thread?

Post links, reviews, sizing questions, etc.

I'm trying to find some good flat shoes for lolita that are comfortable to walk around in all day. Other than tea parties and ballet flats, does anybody have any suggestions? I plan to mostly wear toned down sweet lolita so I'd like to find some cute shoes in pink, white or purple. Thank you in advance for your help!

>> No.7799935

Anything with low wedges will be comfortable long long periods of time. The best thing I can recommend is breaking the shoes in well beforehand and gel insoles. Sweet, sweet gel insoles.

>> No.7799951

I will never find VW Anglomania 3 strap heels in gold. Ever.
But man I wish I would!

I also need comfy shoes, and good ones for more classic and elegant coords. Sometimes Mojo Moxy and Irregular Choice has something good...but it's been a while since I looked.

Also, gel insoles will definitely save your feet.

This leaves me with exactly a week to get a pair of shoes for a big event.

Ladies, any ideas on what shoes I should go with?? Any place that ships super quickly? Pic very much related. I wear size 7.5 us or 23.5/24

I think Hot Tomato is more a budget brand so they're probably less comfortable. They're made well but there's absolutely no cushion in them and since they're a size larger than I wear that doesn't help much either.

Well I had several Melissa shoes before getting into lolita sooo.... Plus they're comfortable and easy to clean.

The only pair that most lolitas want are the triple strap anglomania heels, gold being the most popular (gold shoes are now a hit regardless of the brand). I've seen maybe the triple strap flats being worn, but they were reminiscent of those bordello boots that were popular way back when.

That's both part of it and not part of it.

They do look a bit plastic and a bit like jelly. It's kind of cool to have shoes that are a bit see-through, or that aren't made of conventional materials like normal canvas or leather.

And yes, they do look a bit like Barbie shoes, and Barbie was a style icon. They're fun, they're not meant to be high end hand crafted heritage leather shoes to begin with, just fun shoes.

At the same time, for "plastic shoes", I really haven't found any other brand that is Melissa's equivalent. Other el cheapo jelly/plastic shoes tend to have shiny plastic and have ridges in weird places where the molds come together. Melissa is the one brand that consistently does GOOD plastic shoes.

I guess if you aren't into the plastic/jelly shoes look then it all looks the same to you, just take our word for it, the quality is definitely there.

Has anybody actually tried shoe stretching to trying to up the size a bit on shoes? I think it works depending on the shoe material.

Also I was passing by a Clarks shop in the mall the other day and noticed some really cute shoes in their window display. From what I can tell looking at their website, their Ciera line would work nicely with classic and goes up to at least a size 12.

From reading reviews, their shoes are suppose to be pretty damn comfy. If they're that comfortable and last nicely, might be worth the 100+ pricetag.

Oh yes, I do it all the time (same anon you replied to). It does, in deed, depend on the material. Real leather stretches very good, fabric not so much. PU leather is nearly impossible to stretch. In the case of these melissas there is nothign to stretch as it's plastic.
Thank you for sharing those shoes! Sadly I live nowhere close to the US, and each time I try to purchase shoes from USA or Europe, the shipping costs are ridiculous. Payless won't ship to my country, they do have stores here but they only carry shoes up to size 11 and refuse to order some in size 12 extra for me, even if I pay in advance (bloody bastards). I think I'm pretty fucked. I'm buying shoes fromChina now. It's risky, because in many cases the fit tsn't right either and they may be poorly made, but it's my only way to find pretty shoes.

Been looking for ages, nothing has popped up. I couldn't even find any cheap ones on Taobao that I liked that would have been worth it.

I've had Payless sneakers last me like 6 years of constant abuse, I don't understand the vendetta against them TBH.

Not like they're anywhere else for significantly cheaper without being ugly or babby sized.

I don't have these, but I do have a pair of CP boots and I like them. They are well made and comfy.

>mfw I have such big feet I've worn ugly shoes my whole bloody life
Same here! I'm a US size 12-13 (depending on the brand) and pretty much the only thing stopping me from getting into J-fashion is lack of cute shoes in big sizes. The shoes in >>7839976 are adorable and come in a 12, but I've never worn Clarks before so I'm not sure of their sizing, and even then I'm quite tall already so I'm not too keen on wearing anything that'll make me taller.

The only site I can find that sells decent shoes for big feet is Barefoot Tess, but there don't seem to be many styles that catch my eye for the fashions I'm interested in (classic lolita and otome). If anyone has any links that'd be of use I'd appreciate it!

Pleaser subbrands? Bordello, demonia and funtasma appear to do large sizing

Anon, if you're still around, and if it's not too much trouble, would you be willing to measure the insole of the ballet heels?

yeah, why not Drag Queen shoes? do it

Does anyone know where I can get funtasma shoes? I'm Aus based but happy to buy online internationally.

do you know where can I get vivienne shoes? do they still sell the winged and heart shaped ones?

I feel insecure about buying them online since tehy cost a fortune and I don't want to end up in fake shoes.

Do you mean like the ones in OP's pic? Those can be found on the Melissa site. Idk where to get them in person, though. Hopefully someone else is more helpful

Anywhere I can get a wide variety of lolita/alt fashion shoes in size 12 besides an tai na?
I hate having huge feet, its the bane of my existence.

Not even joking when I say I'm going to track down these shoes and buy a pair of black slouchy socks just so I can also have this look. 10/10, anon

Not specifically lolita but if you wear gothic than pleaser and the sub brands will cater for you. Otherwise some secret shop shoes and bodyline shoes should fit. Oh also possibly Irregular choice.
