Large Size Men’s Shoes

Men’s shoe sizes greater than a 47 are considered large sizes. Up until recently, options in these sizes were limited. However, due to rising demand, this is poised to change.

Large Size Men’s Shoes

The human race is growing. Not just in terms of population, but also in terms of bodily size. A 2002 study conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) found that, on average, people are 22 centimetres taller than their counterparts were 100 years ago. One would assume, then, that shoe sizes have also dramatically increased; this is not the case. The average men’s shoe size is 42. The average shoe store will readily stock sizes up to a 47. What should one do, though, if one has larger feet and requires a size larger than a 47?

Demand for large sizes shoes has risen by 70 percent

10 years ago, it was much harder than it is today for men to find shoes in large sizes. The best they could hope for was to get lucky at a shoe retailer. Stores specializing in large sizes were few and far between, and largely limited to urban locales. In these days, though, e-commerce means that large sizes are much easier to come by—and their availability continues to rise. Hardly surprising, given that some retailers have witnessed a 70 percent increase in demand for large sizes. The range of available large size shoes will likely continue to expand—after all, nowadays one sees more and more extremely large and small sizes.

Playing it safe: custom-making large sizes

Here, we feel we ought to draw attention to master shoemakers. For those who learned the craft from scratch, it’s a piece of cake to prepare large size men’s shoes for clients left wanting by meagre in-store selections. Naturally, custom-made shoes are more expensive than ones that are factory-made. However, custom-made shoes promise a perfect fit (and consequently support foot health), which makes up for their cost. Ill-fitting shoes, after all, end up damaging the musculoskeletal structure of the leg and foot. Moreover, high-quality men’s shoes last much longer than their mass-produced counterparts.
