We understand how frustrating online shoe shopping can be, especially for ladies who wear size 12(+) shoes. With summer officially kicking off next week, we’re here to make online shoe shopping easy for tall women and provide you with a one stop shopping guide for trendy and essential summer shoes available in larger sizes for tall girls.
We’ll also pair our shoe selections with our best summer clothing styles for tall women to give you full outfit and style inspiration! Don’t forget to follow along with us on Instagram, where we share tall style inspiration and fun outfits for tall women every day!
Any other tall girls have a love / hate relationship with summer shoes – specifically open toe shoes? The worst experience with sandals in our opinion is that awful feeling of having your toes hang over the front of the shoe or your heels falling off the back, because you had to squeeze your foot into the largest shoe size the store carried. Thankfully, that tall girl problem has been solved by a number of brands providing great options for shoes in larger sizes. We put together this shoe guide to help steer tall women in the right direction for summer shoe shopping, and even provide some full outfit inspiration using our favorite summer clothes for tall girls!
Both of these Sam Edelman sandals come in multiple colorways and sizes above women’s size 11, including women’s size 12. The Gigi sandal can be paired with our tall lounge shorts in gunmetal and our tall ribbed ruffle tanks, for a super cute and easy daytime outfit for tall girls! Just like our lounge shorts for tall women, these sandals can be dressed up or down depending on how you accessorize! The Bayside sandal is another great casual option for tall girls, since they are slide on sandals. While both of the Havaiana sandals are made of rubber, we were so excited to see the brand moving towards a more elevated style shoe from their traditional thong flip flop styles. Lastly, the Hush Puppies Lily Slide sandal is to die for! Consider this sandal your “fun’ sandal when you want to be tall girl stylin’ – but also not have to try super hard, LOL!

We highly recommend that tall women have a good go-to pair of sneakers in their closet this summer that can compliment any casual outfit. As pictured below, all of these sneakers are more of a fashion sneaker – meant for casual, everyday wear versus exercising. Fashion sneakers have definitely found their way into most brand’s footwear collections, but the larger size sneaker options we have listed below can serve different purposes for each outfit. The Nike Daybreak sneakers are available in women’s size 12 and are perfect for activities like running errands or even going to parks! Pair these sneakers or the Stan Smith’s with our tall lounge shorts in black and one of our tall tees for a completed comfy look! The Vagabond Zoe sneaker can be a dressier option for casually getting drinks or grabbing a bite to eat. The black leather material really upgrades the style!
Wait! Before you scroll past this section, hear us out ladies. These heels range in heel height from 2-3.5 inches, so you can pick what feels most comfortable for you! Not to mention the Otto + Ivy Lula shoe and Monaco Block Heel from Coix Shoes are brands that specialize in making shoes for tall women, and they are designed by tall women themselves! If you're still not fully convinced heels are your thing, we made sure to include Target’s Arrie heel as a safe option, since this heel is technically a platform sandal. Target also carries the Bella heel that is a flirty/sassy option for a taller heel with a snakeskin print. Any of these featured heel options for tall women would be stunning with our tall jean shorts (coming soon)! Our shorts for tall girls will come in a classic blue denim wash and black wash, so pairing them with just about any color of our tall tanks and tees would be adorable!
