Fourteen Year Old Needs Size 15 Shoes – that are Cute for a Teen!

Hi Shoe Lady,

My 14 year old daughter is 6’2″ and wears a size 15 shoe. I have the hardest time finding age appropriate shoes (flats, sandals, low heels) for her. The shoes I find are either to high or not trendy enough for her age. She thinks they look too much like grown folks shoes. Please give me some advice on a site I can go to. And to, the shoes are soooo expensive when you get pass a size 12.

Please advise.


Dear Q,

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you wrote on behalf of your daughter!  Please use this coupon code – your first name in all caps- and she’ll save 10% on her first order of size 15 shoes.

Everyone knows that women’s feet are getting longer fast.  The average size in 1990 was size 7.  Today it is size 9.  Tell me why shoe stores still stop at size 10?  What will they do in 2030 when the average women’s shoe size is size 11?  Will they still stop at size 10?  Whew!

I find 87 styles in size 15 on today.  Some of these are not appropriate for a 15 year old.  But I do think you will find some cute and inexpensive choices.  Manufacturers are beginning to realize that there is a big market here.

Also, I strongly suggest that you carefully measure her feet to make sure she really is a size 15.   Follow the instructions here:   Let me know if you have any questions.
