Good Walking Shoes for the Professional Woman

The 9-to-5 can be stressful enough without the agony of painful footwear to make it unbearable. After reading this, make a vow not to squeeze into those gorgeous heels that look so irresistible in the store and make you drown out all reason that screams ‘Regret!’ as you flag down the nearest shoe salesman. Promise yourself that you’ll no longer hobble down the hallways in the office at work and sigh in relief as you kick off those toe monsters once you’ve settled into your cubicle. And, once you’ve broken up with the too-good-to-be-true shoes that you knew deep down would break your heart, your purse, and almost your ankles, pledge to never turn back and move on to every professional female’s dream: stylish yet comfortable options of women’s wide shoes online.

Penelope, the Star of the Workplace

When it comes to a match made in heaven for the busy working woman, Penelope is the Holy Grail of all business footwear. Sleek but casual, this shoe is extremely cozy with a slipper-like feel that’ll make you ooze with satisfaction before, during, and after-hours. Penelope is hand-crafted suede from Italy and available in red and black to suit your personal taste.

Once You Go Penelope, You Never Go Back!

The saying is true, even for shoes. Well, the right kind, anyway. Penelope lives up to the promises of a designer shoe for professional working women with larger feet. The only way to find out is to try it for yourself. Go ahead – take a chance on footwear that’ll romance your toes into the happiest union between foot and shoe.

In the Words of a Pleased Customer

Cate, one of our happy patrons, had a lot of positive thoughts concerning her experience with Penelope.

“They are incredibly comfortable and sturdy, I can wear them all day and my feet don't feel sore and I don't feel the need to stop what I am doing so I can give my feet a break. They are also very versatile, I can wear them for a night on the town or I can wear them if I just want to have a low key day. I have not found much that I couldn't wear them for.”

Stop beating yourself up for the romance turned sour with uncomfortable footwear. It’s time to invest in better high-quality shoes that will help you get through the work day with ease and feet that are still in tact when you leave the office.

LLXLLQ Featuring: Valencia Shanté, model and ex basketball pro, size 11

 How were you introduced to LLXLLQ large designer shoes for women?

During SF Fashion week last year, I met Johanna. I’d just come back from doing a fashion show in NY and was super excited. I'd never watched a runway show before; until then, I’d always just been in them. Witnessing one really gave me another perspective of what I can do better as a model. It wound up being a great experience and I got the chance to walk a competition they had at the end of the show. Afterwards, Johanna came up and introduced herself and LLXLLQ, which developed to me becoming a spokes model for LLXLLQ.

What has your experience been like with LLXLLQ footwear?

LLXLLQ Customer Shoe Size Fitting and Reviews

In order to facilitate for our online customers in choosing the right shoe size we have asked one of our customers, Karin Sundén, to come visit our “shoe closet” and do a shoe fitting and comparison of our complete shoe selection.

The LLXLLQ shoes are made by European manufactures and sizes, translated to US sizes. Since they are also made at a few different manufactures, who use different lasts to craft their shoes, the sizes may run a little different.

Summertime Shoe-cation

The weather's pleasant, there's plenty to do, and the fashion scene is leaving an incredible impression on those who want to turn their wardrobes up a notch this summer. If you're still in need of that perfect sandal to give your confidence and clothing a boost, you've come to the right place. Check out what's in store for the remaining months of mostly clear skies and anticipated leisure.

Betty & Savannah

Some footwear exhibits so much personality that they're deserving of human names. Meet Betty and Savannah, two of LLXLLQ's feature sandals. Handmade in Italy and available in varying colors, these beauties promise to deliver comfort and quality for every occasion this season. Both of these larger size designer shoes for women each have their own dose of magic that shines differently in each shoe owner.

“She’s a Total Betty!”

So, every Betty you’ve met, or heard of, probably embodied self-confidence, originality, and, magnetism, right? Think about it: actresses Betty White and Bette Davis, activist Betty Shabazz, comic series heroine Betty from Betty & Veronica, etc. Well, here’s another awesome Betty to add to the list.

Created from the best suede, Betty sandals are ready for purchase in pink, blue, yellow, and red. They have a softness that exudes femininity and offer an abundance of arch support for the feet. It’s the ideal shoe for a first date over dinner at sunset or dancing with friends on a cool, moonlit night.

Savannah, the Southern Belle of Sandals

Like a freshly picked Georgian peach, Savannah displays a rare sweetness coupled with a low-key charm. This all-purpose sandal is undoubtedly a classic prize. The flower that’s located in its center gives it just a hint of fanciness without making it too fussy. Its small heel spells out elegant but simple, lady-like yet adventurous.

One would never guess that such a doll of a shoe comes with its own protective gear. The rubber sole on its bottom helps to avoid messy slips and falls. Its open toe makes it easy for your feet to exhale while you go through the motions of your day. Also plentiful in colors, Savannah sandals come in red, black, and white.

Happy Customers Galore

Elizabeth Jacobo selected a pair of Betty’s in yellow to help brighten her feet’s appearance for the summer.

"I picked these because they are fun and happy, summer shoes,” says Jacobo. “The heel is not too narrow and they are comfortable. These are the most comfortable strappy summer suede shoes I have ever owned."

Also, our youngest customer thus far, 14-year-old Kara, is from Palo Alto, CA. The local basketball player was the first appointment for a shoe closet sale this summer and tried on a minimum of 10 items before she chose Betty in pink and Savannah in white.

If the Shoe Fits, Wear It Well

Pick your favorite style and all into character with new sandals from LLXLLQ to experience a fashionable summer beyond measure. Your feet will definitely thank you!

Featured Stylist: E. Denise Johnson, Michael Boris NYC

LLXLLQ had the pleasure to work with wardrobe stylist E. Denise Johnson and Michael Boris designed clothing for our first photo shoot in San Francisco, October 2012.

E. Denise Johnson has been surrounded by fashion since she was born, and have a well-rounded professional career in the field. Early on she was on the original staff as assistant store manager opening the first flag ship store for Ralph Lauren in New York City, 1984. Since then she also worked with Ralph Lauren in Paris. She has worked at the upscale specialty clothing store Wilkes Bashford in San Francisco and Palo Alto, as well as on the creative advertising side booking models for the founder Marie Christine at Look Agency. Today she is the west coast representative for Michael Boris Clothing and a highly appreciated wardrobe stylist for private individuals.

Designer Michael Boris, based out of New York City, is referred to as The Master of Anonymous Luxury. During 35 years he has mainly been serving his made-to-order clients. He is also represented in Wilkes Bashford, Nieman Marcus, as well as specialty stores nation wide.

Below you can read E. Denise Johnson's point of view with regards to shoes, or watch the video that also includes photos from the photo shoot with Michael Boris Design clothing.

"My name is Denise Johnson, and I work with designer Michael Boris out of New York. I guess he would call me his assistant here on the West Coast, and I oversee his show room here in San Francisco.

We are here to prepare for a photo shoot of LLXLLQ to get the shoe line up and running and complement your shoes."

What role does shoes play when it comes to fashion? "I alway say that  shoes are your most important accessory. That is how I have always seen it in fashion, when ladies are trying on things. One of the first things I always want to do is to find the appropriate shoes to the appropriate outfit. Shoes will make or brake your ensemble."  

What is your advise on selecting shoes? "I like the the classics. Yes, there is fashion. You have the higher heels, the medium heels, and the flats. The beauty right now for women is that we aren't dictated by any type of heel hight as women has been in the past. Now it's basically what works for you as a woman, and there is a nice variety of option out on the market place right now.

The most important thing is: find what works for you and make sure that you can walk in them."

On the topic of not having size 10-12 in shoes... "Well - I am disappointed too and one size can't fit them all unfortunately. Even if they may not work for me, I think they [LLXLLQ shoes] are beautiful, and there are some lucky ladies out there who will be able to wear them.

I think that it is great that there is something that they will be able to wear, that is designed for them, for ladies of a certain shoe size. That hasn't been the case in the past, and it is great that they have some variety and have beautiful shoes."

The new Michael Boris Fall 2013 collection is available at Wilkes Bashford San Francisco until Friday, June 28. It is well worth a visit. Much like the LLXLLQ shoes, the Michael Boris clothing provide comfort and quality in well-designed and handcrafted pieces.

Summer's Here - Let's Leave a Colorful Footprint!

LLXLLQ's summer selection is much like a Kandinsky painting: sustainable, rich in color, unapologetically unique, and worth every penny. It's time to find designer shoes - maybe even to a discount - that make a positive statement and provide the blissful comfort you crave.

Whatever Strikes Your Fancy

This season's styles can be worn for several types of occasions. Invest in classic stilettos for an after-five corporate affair. Or, go with backless sandals at a romantic picnic for two at the park. Even try easy slip-in flats for that long awaited family vacation. Either way, you'll discover shoes that match every event and keep you feeling queenly, yet natural.

Why It's a Win-Win

The best part about LLXLLQ is the overwhelming confidence instilled in buyers once they've chosen a pair of shoes that fit their standards. These handmade comfortable beauties from Italy are specially made for women who wear sizes 10-12. Some styles are flat while others have heels up to 4 inches high.

Where to Go From Here

Well, that's easy: browse the online store to see the latest larger size designer shoes for women and fill your personal cart today. While you're at it, don't miss this weekend's Summer Solstice Celebration at the Four Seasons Silicon Valley that will feature LLXLLQ's shoe line, Camilla Olson's fashion line, as well as Chef Marco's grilled cuisine, Quattro's debut of summer cocktails, and live music.

Be spectacular this summer: let your feet do the talking -- identify and flaunt your colors with shoes that have something to say.
