“If you’re a woman with a foot larger than size 11, finding fashionable shoes that fit can be a herculean feat. Stores like 9 West, Enzo, and Sacco, with the broadest selection of the most stylish shoes, carry sizes 6 to 10 and some just recently added size 11. But for the larger sizes, woman are forced to travel miles to find the one store that sells their size.” Hunter, Karen. “It’s Big Feet First At Tall Step.” New York Daily News. 3 Apr. 1995. <www.nydailynews.com>.
