OMG!! Thank You!

I am a 29 year old 6'3" tall woman with size 12 - 13 feet. As you can imagine, I am always disappointed when shoe shopping! Please ALWAYS stay in business! I cant wait to buy & buy & buy!

I just wanted to say that I don't even bother looking for shoes in stores anymore (there are only two stores that I can buy shoes from here anyway) and only buy my shoes on your website - I tell anyone who has large feet about your site! All your shoes are really good value. And I live in Melbourne, Australia and always receive the shoes really quickly especially as they are coming from the U.S.

Thanks again,

Being a Big Foot from the Land Down Under, people stare at my feet in awe and wonder. But I'm no longer embarrassed, nor will I sigh or frown Because I got these shoes in Purple, Black and in Brown. It was difficult to purchase just three pairs of shoes With such an amazing range from which to choose. Huge temptation and such enticement too meant practicing restraint to only buy a few. Yes I'll be sharing my secret that's for sure Whilst saving my pennies to buy some more. Everyone I meet will be told I feel blessed Because my feet have been Barefoot Tess'd!

Shoes had a good trip, arriving totally unharmed, comfortably nestled together in a box delivered to my doorstep (in Australia) in less than a week!

Barefoot Tess = Fantastic Shoes + Amazing Service = Happy Customer

The staff at BFT are special people - nothing is too much trouble, nor are you treated like a nuisance - I feel I've made new friends.

How could I NOT be a loyal customer? You keep delivering! I remember when I was young and a size 9.5 by about 14 years old that it was hard back then (I am 61) for me to find shoes... and when you go into big department stores and they tell you that they get ONE size 10 in a crate, man you know you are left with orthopedic choices. People are ALWAYS commenting on my shoes and I put your site out there every chance I get.

Between our cool days and our extra hot days I know that we are well and truly closer to September than I would wish for. Having said that, I love the change of seasons, love ALL of the seasons (except for the mud one) and I probably love the NE for that reason because it gives me all sorts of reasons to have lots of shoes. You are pretty limited if you live where it is always sunshine! That's my story and I am sticking to it!

Thanks as always for making me (and everyone I am sure) feel like such a valued customer. THAT makes a real difference in today's world.
I just wanted to let you know that your customer service is amazing. YOU GUYS ROCK!! I placed an order an hour ago and already got shipping/tracking info, and I will have it tomorrow probably.

So happy with your product and service I recommend you all the time.

Hey Tess,

My name is also Tess. I am a 13 year girl who wears a size 12 and lives in a little town in Idaho. So as you know it is IMPOSSIBLE to find shoes. I am so glad I found your web site and I think it is amazing that you started it. Other companies need to know that there are women and girls out there that have big feet. I hate the feeling of walking into a shoe store and they look at me like I am crazy fro asking for a size 12, or you have to shop in the men's section and even then cant find a pair of shoes you like. I also play a sport, softball, and cleats are actually one shoe you can buy in a 12! but even they stop there. I have found a couple stores that carry very select items in am 11, but I soon passed that size. Again I think what you are doing is great and I thank you so much for it. You are making life easier for me and many other people.

Thank you,
I just happened to do a search for large sized women shoes since I haven't done one in a VERY LONG time... I thought I knew about all of the stores/websites that catered to my size 13 foot. BOY was I WRONG! I came across your site a few minutes ago and almost fell out of my chair... You guys ROCK! This is the first time in all of my big foot shoe huntin', that I actually found a place that has ONLY fashionable, trendy and beautiful shoes! Other places have a few here and there, but y'all are the BOMB!

All I can say is THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!
Today my shoes arrived, and in under a week from the date I ordered.
I am so impressed with the speed of delivery from the U.S. to here in Australia.

And I love all the shoes I ordered. Your website is so precise with fitting instructions, that all the shoes fit me perfectly, and they look fabulous. At 35 years of age, I had resigned myself to wearing thongs (flip flops) everywhere, and now I have experienced the joy of shoe-shopping for the first time in my life. I can feel another addiction growing!

I especially love your website. The images are abundant and accurate, international prices are displayed alongside U.S. prices, similar styles are recommended, and fitting instructions are perfect. The blurbs are also well-written, funny, and enticing. All-in-all, a very enjoyable shopping experience.
Your range of shoes, designers, and prices, is a dream come true, and you now have yourself an ecstatic life-long customer.

I am from a family of tall women, and have told all my sisters, cousins, aunts, and my mum about your website. Now I know my nieces can journey through their teenage years with the latest styles on their feet, and not have to suffer any shame about their big feet like I did.

Thank you so much,
Nikki M.
This is such a fabbuloussssss idea!!!!!! when i saw the site i nearly stopped breathing!!! lol finally a place for tall girls to shop for trendy shoes!!! :D

Dear Barefoot Tess Employees,

I was so excited when I came across your website and saw that you ship to Canada. It is very hard for me to find fashionable shoes here that fit me. I just wanted to say that I am very pleased with the boots and shoes that I ordered from Barefoot Tess. I was extremely happy that they fit me perfectly, which is rare when you are ordering shoes from the internet. It was mainly due to the "fit tip" that you provide with the shoes, so thank you again for that. I will definitely be ordering from you again, and I am very excited to see what is in store for the summer.

Thank you again and Merry Christmas!!!

My feet have a crush on you.

Seriously, you guys, my size 12 feet love you. I used to long for toe shrinkage, and too often forced said toes into obviously small shoes. No more! No more longing for the return of grunge where I could where combat boots with my dresses. From the tips of my toes, I thank you for bringing my girly feet back.
I love, love, love my new shoes! As the younger of my two daughters puts it (she wears a "mere" size 11 to my size 14/15s), no matter how smart, kind, educated and well-groomed you are, if you can't buy shoes because they simply DON'T MAKE YOUR SIZE... you feel like a freak. Thanks you, Barefoot Tess (yes, other stores and sites stock my size, but no one else comes close to the level of style, choice and service that Tess delivers)--I know it sounds silly; they're only shoes, after all!--but you've changed my life.

Thank YOU!!!! For the first time in my life I have lots of cute, fun shoes - this has never been possible before! Now I have to stop myself occasionally because I am running out of closet space because after years of having no choice at all, I now have all these wonderful tempting possibilities!!! I love your site!!! (and your buyer!!!)

Thank you and Happy New Year!! When I count my blessings, I count Barefoot Tess. Seriously, I'm not just being corny -- we found Barefoot Tess about a year ago and it's the only place my 19 year old daughter will buy shoes.

As a mother of a 14-year-old girl with a size 13 foot all I want to say is thank you, thank you, thank you.

Other than men's tennis shoes, Birkenstocks and flip flops my daughter has little to no choice in shoes.

She is a young girl and wants to be stylish like all her friends, classmates and sister who is 11 with a size 9 foot!

I have never been so pleased with a store and its service as I am with Barefoot Tess! I have a granddaughter who is almost 16, she has size 14 feet. They are also very narrow! Finding shoes for her that do not look like cross dressing shoes is almost impossible... but I found two pair at your site. She has her first homecoming on Friday and was in tears because she has not had dress shoes in many months! I am so pleased to have found some that I think will work for her. I will keep a close eye on your sales also. For Ashley to have more than one pair of girls' shoes is going to be a dream come true.

Thank you again for your warm and personal service.

It has been a very nice experience shopping with you and your company. I will be shopping again with you. It was easy to do business. Your response to my request were always quick and helpful. I wish all on-line companies were like you. It lets me know you are always there watching and listing to your customers needs. I will tell my sisters and all my friends about your site. As a matter of fact, I am emailing your site as a link to my home girls. we all have a shoe fetish.
I just received my 3 pairs of shoes. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?!? I'm from NY and came down to VA 14 years ago and usually have to go to DC or Richmond to get shoes. But you have all the styles and colors I need in MY SIZE. You now have a customer for years to come.

I LOVE THE SHOES, they're great.

I just would like to say thank you so very much for your amazing, efficient service. I received these lovely shoes for my 15-year-old daughter. She has been suffering the humiliation of having a larger than average size foot since she was 13 years old. The only thing I have found until your shoes is rubber flip flops or boys school shoes! She is delighted and I am relieved, so again thank you very much.

With best wishes,

Hello Tess-ians!

I can't even express to you the joy it has been to find a store that sells shoes-all shoes in my size all the time!

Recently I purchased the "Little white lies" by Seychelles a size up as I was instructed. They are exquisite. So beautiful I may have to order another pair-which is tough because I'm thinking the French sole shoes are calling to me too! My J-walk sandals are beyond comfortable and beyond that, EVERYONE and I mean EVERYONE loves my shoes. I also ordered the very traditional and so great espadrilles Pare Gabia in Ecru & Blue stripes - they look great and feel better. Not one single pair of shoes I have bought needed to be returned or caused my feet any grief at all!

I really appreciate the tips about sizing it makes online shopping 100% easier! Thanks for opening up my shoe world again!
