Contact: Mira Smoljko
"I specialise in beautiful women's shoes for bigger feet. Sizes start at 10 and go at least to a 13, and I even have a range going to size 15.
Since starting my business in 2009, a good part of my clientele has been transgender and cross-dressing folk, I even have a private room for shyer customers.
The big thing about my shoes is that they are regular fashionable women's shoes, just in bigger sizes. As a size 11 myself on a decades long mission to find nice shoes to fit, the majority that I have come across were either granny style or fetish types. I guess this is one of the reasons that I do get a few cross-dressers because, I have women's shoes that real women wear.
I love providing this service for cross-dressers and even more so. I adore talking shoes, style and where asked, on how to style an outfit with the right pair of shoes and the right colour. It is a real labour of love and I thoroughly enjoy it." - Mira. (Letter to Seahorse)

We will strive to make your purchase easy and hassle free. Our business philosophy is simple, we treat each customer the way that we ourselves would like to be treated. We specialize in bigger sizes from 7 to 14 and carry a very large selection of styles and colours giving the person with a larger foot the opportunity to feel good about themselves." - from the website.
"This is a small shop tucked away in an obscure part of Collaroy Plateau, but is well worth the trip to see their extensive supply of top-quality shoes for the larger foot. In addition to a wide range of shoes, they sell jewelry and other accessories. What a great feeling to find nice, stylish and comfortable size 12 shoes at last!" - Christine.
