I managed to find a site that sell plenty of large size heels upto a size UK11. i have been hunting for a good pair of peeptoe boots / sandals for a while but managed to find these all under £50 and available in size UK11.

I really love the feeling of peeptoe boots on my feet.  They also look so sexy especially with a pair of tight fitting jeans

i will not be ordering from http://www.just4birminghamjobs.co.uk/  again but i have managed to find a nice pair of peeptoe sandal boots. they have a 3 inch block heel so they will be easy to walk in and hopefully comfortable.  http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/Large-size-Mens-Ladies-Tan-block-ankle-Strap-Shoes-UK-10-UK-11-DRAG-TV-CD/311741390890?hlpht=true&ops=true&viphx=1&_trksid=p5197.c100068.m2280&_trkparms=ao%3D1%26asc%3D20140211125758%26meid%3Da921cf105e114792a78f808e4bcba60a%26pid%3D100068%26clkid%3D773537160032027933&_qi=RTM2108002

The point is well taken. :penitent:  The zip up pair of ankle boots have the pointy toe. Won't that give you the same problem as the lace up boots?

Thighbootguy: while I prefer rounder toe I can make pointy work, especially if I just plan to use them for practice with 5.5" heels.

So, please tell us what went wrong with this supplier or its product.

They sent me a pair of nike trainers instead of a pair of high heeled peeptoe boots.  when i tried to contact them to organise a return they would not respond to my emails.  i contacted them around 5 times with no response.  im lucky the trainers fit ok as i would have been left with an item of no use

In another post I mentioned that showshow.com has free shipping through Jan 1,2016.  Taking advantage of that and a great clearance price I bought a pair of Air Underground Mobile boots in a size 12 for $15. (see the the other post for a link).  They are a moccasin style shoe with a hidden 3" wedge heel that I wasn't expecting.  When I opened the box I was sure they had sent me the wrong size (they looked like a 10) but to my amazement they fit,  The shaft is tight and has some fancy fringe.

They also have a functional lace on the back of the knee.

I have a guitar gig coming up this Friday and Saturday nights and I'm planning on wearing these boots.  Last time I thigh boots with 5" stilettos and that made loading/unloading equipment over an open mesh metal walkway a challenge.

Any thoughts on what to pair these boots with are welcome (a skirt is not appropriate for the gig).

This rather confirms my doubts that this merchant is legit.   I simply didn't (and don't) believe that it can supply its whole range of footwear in the large sizes it lists - the probability is that you have been fobbed off with what may well be the ONLY shoe style it has in your size (UK10).   I notice that the site gives no merchant identity and contact details and seems to require payment via Western Union - all very suspicious.   But if you look here: http://www.just4birminghamjobs.co.uk/-ezp-14.html it shows what appears to be your order - almost a boast that you are a satisfied customer!   I suggest you give a scathing review on its site, at the very least.

So, I decided to get a black pair from Skyscrapers heels to go along with my red pair. Unfortunately they sent pointy toe when I'd ordered round toe. They quickly offered to let me keep this pair while they have a round toe pair made. I like that kind of service!

I figured it would be a show of good will to order a pair they had on clearance. Zip up ankle boots will be easier to throw on then the thigh boots for practicing in 5.5" heels.

Quick update ---  I wore my new Air Underground Mobile boots with black leggings to my chiropractor this morning and she absolutely loved them and made a note of the shoeshow.com web site.  Th then went to Walgreen's to pick up a prescription and a middle aged male customer called out, "Love your boots" when I was about 30 feet away.  I turned his way and smiled and gave him a thumbs up.  I think this pair is a winner.

Even if you don't prefer the black boots I do. Those are very sharp.

Surcoming to the temptation of low prices and free shipping I ordered two more pair of boots from shoeshow.com.  Considering that I have always been on the fringe of social acceptance anyway, I bought a pair of Hot Tomato Elk River boots in a size 13 with a 1/2" block heel for $20 and they further defined my social position.

Fun, warm, comfortable, and slightly outrageous.

The second pair are Its Ok Mariya OTK boots in a size 13 with a 1" block heel for $15.

I wore these boots to a performance gig last night and got an "I like your boots" comment.  It is definitely easier to unload and move equipment in these heels rather than the stilettos, which I wore last year to the same gig.

Both of these boots are size 13M and, if anything, are a little large.  I have to wear both pair with bulky socks.

Aren't we all here on "the fringe of social acceptence"?  Both pairs look great!   The fringe pair are really cool.

Not to deviate too far from the topic of this thread but...

I mentioned that I wore my new Its Ok Mariya OTK boots to a gig.

 GEDC1179.jpg

I was busking at an event called Art Walk at the Essex art studios in Cincinnati.  Essex is in a large building with about 100 separate artist studio's that they open to the public twice a year and they invite musicians to come in to perform (busk) soto add to the festivities.  I was sitting in a wide hallway with folks walking past and occasionally dropping a buck or two into my guitar case.   The way I was sitting, I had to look up to see people's faces, but looking straight ahead I saw a lot of boots and heels, which is one of the reasons I really like this gig.  Not that I was keeping score bit I only say two pair of boots that were as high as mine were. :cheeky:

Not bragging, but I'm fairly competent with my performance, but I can attribute my getting lost (missed chords, mumbled words,...) in several songs when a pair of chin droppingly gorgeous, tight shafted, stiletto heeled boots walked by.   I kept telling myself, "pay attention to what you're doing" and then I realized that was exactly what I was doing... boot/heel watching.  I was a fun evening. :rocker:

A bit snug, hoping they stretch a bit. The heel is noticeable, but easy to walk in.

Hehehe, well, it's 5.5" with about a 1" platform, but the base is wide enough it should be stable on anything except pure ice. I figure they will go well with ski/snow pants and be pretty hidden. Already have a friend wanting me to visit MN in winter, so I expect they will get a bit of use there.

If your heading North, you might need them, but being your in the deep south - - - If it gets that bad, there will be no place to go in them. We all know what a 1/4" will do down there.

As a guy I Was not sure what all the fuss was about boots as I wear work boots every day.  I finally broke down and got a pair.  They are 3" stilletto heel and goes up to just a few inches above ankle.  Closed toe, and square toe.  With zipper side.  Dark brown, almost a black.   Not work appropriate :)

wow, they  are so much fun to wear.  No worry about slipping out.  Easy to put on so I am wearing  heels more often.   So easy to slip on after work and run a few errands.  Even lakes through a department store formth first time  

I was worried that boots would not provide that soft fem feel, but they bring their own joy, and click clack as I walk.  Plus with the cold weather, my toes stay warm.

sorry no pictures.

I saw this pair of boots earlier this week. Only 1 pair of size 4UK available. I asked for my size, but they were online order only, so The lady working on the clothing section offered to write the produce code down for me. I have received them and look forward to wearing them for a test walk soon.

i suspect one of my sisters has brought the size 4UK pair that I saw  originally, as she mentioned when visiting today getting a new pair that sound just like them. large.IMG_0037.JPGlarge.IMG_0036.JPG
