Big and comfortable
DesignerShoes.com was founded in 1997, and provides fashion shoes for women with larger feet. The Company specializes only in hard to find sizes: wide sizes 8 to 14, extra wide sizes 6 to 14, narrow sizes 9 to 13 and medium sizes 10.5 to 15. The company have recently formed a Teen Advisory Board to help the DesignerShoes.com better serve the footwear fashion interests of young women in high school and college with bigger feet. This represents about 10% of all teens. Most fashion brands fail to cater to teens with larger sizes which accounts for millions of America's teenage girls. Many are left to shop in the men's shoe department. DesignerShoes.com offers over 45 top brand names including Anne Klein, Valentina, Naturalizer, Sofft and Via Spiga. It offers six "Collection" categories including Couture, Teen, Bridal, Comfort, Everyday Value and Fashion Fun. In addition to on-line ordering, DesignerShoes.com serves customers at its retail location at 125 Newbury Street in Boston's fashionable Back Bay.
