The runways were awash with clear plastic shoes for spring 2013 we’re talking Lucite shoes, PVC shoes, and perspex shoes but are see through shoes in larger sizes for women with big feet? This is one of those trends that might not be for everyone, and forget about even attempting it if your big feet are not in tip top condition – pedicures to the ready girls! It’s an interesting trend, and certainly one that could work well in larger shoe sizes.

On the one hand, the warmth of spring time and plastic shoes on big feet may not be the ideal combination for comfort, but on the other hand, thanks to the flamboyant-ness of some of our cross-dressing sisters (we love you grrls!), there is a surprising amount of choice of see through shoes in larger sizes out there but let’s face it, there is a fine line between walking the runway (so chic) and working the pole (not so much).

We love the creativity of shoe designers in incorporating the trend into the shoes, Louboutin, Jimmy Choo and Prada have proven themselves once again to be masters of the art of the shoe. However for us lesser mortals for whom designer shoes are not an everyday occurrence there are a few rules to observe to work the trend.

 

 

Clearly Chic: How to wear the see through shoes trend with style

Watch the heel height

Towering platform heels on see through shoes scream one thing and one thing only unless you’re a celebrity, even then, don’t do it to yourself.

Mixed materials
You’ll be right on trend with shoes that combine see through materials and other more conventional materials in an interesting way. Cap toe see through shoes work well for big feet because it gives the illusion that your shoe is much smaller than it really is, and can make feet appear more dainty as demonstrated by Ms. Kardashian. However avoid if you have wide feet.

Go for clean lines

Clean and classic streamlined styles will always be more flattering for big feet

Balance the see through shoes with the rest of your outfit

But if you fall in love with a more out-there shoe, that’s fine too. Just remember to balance the shoe with the rest of your outfit to let the shoes add an unexpected chic.

Subtle Details

Women with big feet can work a more subtle spin on the trend by choosing shoes that incorporate luscious see through details like a lucite heel into the design of the shoe, or even a clear PVC panel added to the shoe.

Pedicure

We said it before, and we’ll say it again. If your budget won’t stretch to a pro pedicure, then for the love of all that is sacred, check out the Isy B. guide to making your big feet pretty at home.
