True story about to happen here, tune in. I once had a girlfriend who searched for the perfect guy, first by feet then by face. I was never sure why she was always looking and poking at me, she kept showing me shoes and feet. Finally, one day I could take no more of the foot fetish and I simply asked her why she was obsessed with feet? Her answer astounded me, as I kind of knew what was about what as about to be said, after all we have heard guys with big feet have big — STOP!!!! She was looking for a guy with big feet and making sure they were huge, like a size 12 or bigger because her feet were a 9 and she wanted her flippers to look like small feet to everyone else they were around! She figured if he had big feet and if they were even wide that would be an additional bonus because she thought that if his feet were big, her flippers would look smaller! Today, my husband struggles with the Big & Wide Feet syndrome, you know the result of having big, wide feet that can’t be furnished by going into a traditional retailer and trying on multiple pairs of shoes? Someone out there needs to cater to XL Feet! So you know what they say about guys with big feet then right? Guys with big feet need BIG shoes! If you are a guy with XL Feet, Extra Wide Feet from EE to 6E, or if you have feet bigger than a size 11, this is a story you have to read, because I know where you can shop till you drop and get what you want! Let’s help all of the Men with XL Feet.
What do they say about guys with big feet? They get their shoes from XLfeet, where: Fitting Extra Large Feet is no Extra Large Feat®. What do you do if you can’t find shoes that are in your size, or have a child that has outgrown their current size and they are about to become shoe-less unless you can create a solution? Do you drive all over town or is there a different solution? Here’s a quick clue to today’s discussion, XL FEET will help you find the shoes you need for your child, or your guy or if you are the guy reading this: for you!
Big mens large work boots to size 18 EEE Extra Wide are what you will find at XL FEET and shopping won’t be a challenge.
My challenge recently has been not only in athletic shoes but in work-boots for my husband’s lovely size 11 EEE foot. When I set out to purchase replacements for his athletic wear or his boots most retail shoe stores have employees that gaze at me in despair when I ask for the size and width as though I have just been dropped off from outer-space. The size is not really the problem it is the width in our case, but finding the size and width together is a virtual nightmare. Did you know that most retailers only carry footwear up to a sizes 12/13? Often traditional retail store don’t even carry anything past the marking of a “W” for wide as no such markings of EE or EEE, EEEE, or 6E even exist. Why are guys having to squash their big feet into small shoes that don’t fit? That just leads to one man with a big foot that is having his foot squeezed like a over-ripened tomato and that’s not cool!
Men with XL Feet
The need for shoes for men with big feet is not unique however, because 75% of those seeking shoes for big feet, wide feet, large feet are: mothers, daughters, sisters, wives, and girlfriends. Think of it this way, if you looked in your guy’s closet or your son’s closet would you find anything ‘acceptable’ for them to wear out if you had not picked it out? There you have it the Woman Prophecy of shopping for you guys.
My story today is with one of my friends and business owner, Adrian of XL Feet. Adrian really understands that women and men are both struggling to find and chasing after sizes that are basically not able to be found. Adrian himself is a sizse 16 and he knows the plight of the guy with the wide foot! He is an actual owner that walks the walk(lol) and can talk the talk! Have you a foot that is a 6E wide? Sigh with relief if you are reading this because I have found the ONE location that will cater to your foot: XL FEET
Adrian’s customers are comprised of 75% women trying to hook their guys with big feet up with shoes that are stylish, trending and BIG! Often, mom’s get to struggle with their new ‘big guys’ who boast sizes 13 and 14 and the challenge is on as to where to purchase those shoes. The chase can be all over town or you can just stop at XL Feet on line. Adrian has a brick and mortar store but his online store will dazzle the EEE, Extra Wide, Big Foot shoe-seeking guy or ladies buying for the guys. You don’t have to run all over town, just run to your computer, and type in the last words your Big Man and his feet will ever need again to buy shoes: XLFEET.COM
How would it be to never have been able to try shoes on, multiple pairs or even find multiple pairs of shoes in one place that fit, since you were about the age of 12? Unfortunate and potentially it could scar this child from liking to shop(oh no ladies, this could be bad, as you won’t have a companion shopper late on.. stop this plight!) This is often what happens to boys once they hit age 12 and grow into sizes like 12, 13, and 14 – and the shame of it is, they can’t find a selection or shoes that they need for all of their occasions and life. It would seem that an entire demographic of our population has been overlooked but the thing is the shoes exist and XL FEET has them, regular retailers don’t!
So, how did we handle the big man’s feet in my life? We XL Feet’d him up! With a really wide and large foot, we found a few options that offered steel work toe as well as EEE width. I have learned that many men who need workboots suffer from buying the wrong size and that an EEE really makes a difference in how a guy will feel after spending the day on a construction site on their feet. XL Feet knows this as well and offers a full line of EE and Extra Wide 6E to suit all guys up with the shoe of need.
Adrian and I discussed WIDE feet and Adrian says, “In terms of wide, every E of width is just shy of 1/4 of an inch. It may seem like a small amount of room, but for a man with EEE wide feet, the difference between Medium/Regular and EEE Extra Wide is about 3/4 of an inch, and this makes all the difference in the world.”
Now for the meat and potatoes of the shoe: This is a Thorogood 6″ Sports with with Steel Toe and it is made in the USA. The material used offers moisture-management which is a plus for those big, sweaty feet! These are very comfortable plus-sized boots and they come from a company named Thorogood who is an employee-owned company, which is all good news for American retail and commerce!
Take a look at the sole of the shoe and the inside – cushioned insoles and the soles are durable and rugged for use on the job site.
So, after all this you realize what they say about Men that have big feet right? They need big shoes and if you are looking to lavishly let your guy live out loud in fashion for his extra-wide, extra big feet, don’t shop retail stores, shop at a specialty store. Let Adrian, the real BIG FOOTED guy, dress your foot in shoes from dress shoes to work shoes, the XL Feet store has it all. They are the heel and sole for guys with big feet and wide feet! Lavishly live Extra Wide Feet, Extra Large Feet and the need to cover those feet out loud with fashion, work boots for guys with feet that are XL Feet.
