Big feet…Nordstrom is the answer

I am a shoe size 11 (EU 42) and it is a challenge to find shoes that fit my ‘big’ feet. As a result, the rule I follow is to either buy it if I find it, or forget it because it won’t be back 🙂

So, I was pleasantly surprised to receive the following notification from Nordstrom: they have extended their line for out of the norm feet 🙂 (over size 10 and under size 5).

Well, so many choices and now I have a headache 🙂 You can checkout the shoe haven at Nordstrom.  Some of my picks below, simply click on the image to be redirected. Let me know if you fall for the temptation, and which shoes you select 😉
