Welcome to Your Feet Make You Unique- a large-size shoe blog designed for women who wear large size shoes.
My name is Andrea Pace, creator and writer of Your Feet Make You Unique. Because I proudly wears size 11 shoes, I know all too well how it feels to be frustrated, disappointed and embarrassed when it comes to finding and buying shoes in larger sizes.
Why Your Feet Make You Unique was created
I really enjoy sharing this story with anyone who will listen. It was definitely a life changing moment in my life:
In March 2006, I had the opportunity to take a weekend trip to New York to see a Broadway play. Of course, my friends and I found time for a little sight-seeing and shopping. Have you ever been to Macy’s in New York? It’s just overwhelming. After I picked my jaw off the floor, I headed straight for a gorgeous pair of strappy, light-brown sandals.
Mesmerized by this exquisite pair of shoes, I found a sales clerk and quietly asked her for a size 11. She politely took the shoe and went to the back and a couple of minutes later she came back to tell me what I already knew, “Sorry, this shoe doesn’t come in Big Foot Size.” Of course, that’s not what she said. After I worked through a few seconds of extreme disappointment, the sales lady asked me a simple, but life changing question, “Would you like to know who makes shoes in your size?” This simple, yet profound question was a definitive turning point in my life. Why hadn’t I ever thought to look up that information or even ask? Years and years of disappointment and embarrassment could have been avoided.
Somehow, I felt empowered by knowing names of designers who create beautiful shoes in my size. I actually felt better about the size of my feet. I wanted other women to feel better too.
That’s why I created, Your Feet Make You Unique. Now women can instantly shop and access information about the kind of shoes they want to wear in their size. I’ve also included practical tips, articles, shoe reviews and more...My goal is to make women feel better about the size of their feet and make their lives just a little easier.
Because I care. Because I know how you feel you have a friend at Your Feet Make You Unique
