As someone with big feet (I wear a size 13, which I pray will not get any bigger) it's been a lifelong goal of mine to find shoes that flatter my anatomy. With casual footwear it's not that hard - I find shoes with laces closer to the toe accomplish this, as well as shoes with shorter vamps and small soles. But when it comes time to get even a little fancier - say, dressing up for a night on the town or business casual - I'm basically at a loss. I've had good luck recently with a driving moc kind of shoe, something that hugs the foot pretty close and always with a feature (like a tie or a horsebit) that visually breaks up the top part, but I'm wondering what else is out there. Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm thinking of maybe something like this , because I like the way the vamp (is that the right term for the top part of the shoe?) doesn't come up that far, as is does on a shoe like this. Any tips?
