Web-based shoe retailer provides fashionable womens footwear in larger sizes

on Thursday,May 27,2010 20:05


In an effort to help women with larger than average feet stay up-to-date with the latest shoe trends, BarefootTess.com has created a web-based platform that provides a wide variety of designs in larger sizes.

The website, which sells in women's sizes 10 through 15, sells larger versions of high-fashion footwear at affordable prices. The site was created five years ago by Karen Willamson of Baltimore, who developed a character named Tess who struggled to find desirable shoes in a size 11.

According to the website, Tess is a fashionable girl in her twenties who needed a singular place to find designer shoes in large sizes. In the past, she'd been offered orthopedic or men's shoes by salespeople, and was distraught by the lack of options to fit her feet.

To answer this need, which is felt by many women with larger-than-average feet, the website offers a variety of footwear options, including bridal collections, sneakers and vegan shoes. This array of options is intended to enable women with large feet to express their personalities without an extended search for shoes.
