UK plus-size clothing chain Evans was sold to Australian retailer City Chic Collective in December 2020.

It's a big relief for all Evans fans that the brand has been saved. However Evans will now be an online only retailer.

This is a real shame because Evans was the only high street chain where you could just walk in & try on size 10/11 UK shoes.

You can continue to buy Evans shoes online and a new website launched in March 2021. Hopefully the brand will further improve under new ownership. But in these uncertain times it's best to have as many shoe shopping options as possible.

So here's a list of other stores selling wide shoes in large sizes. If you need wide shoes in size 9 UK there are still a few physical retail options if you prefer to shop in person. There's some good online stores doing wide size shoes up to size 11 UK.

Top tip: the old Evans shoe sizes were generous, so you may need to go up a size in other brands.

ASOS

Wide fit mainly up to size 9 UK, a few wide size 10s

The online giant offers their own ASOS Design brand shoes in wide fit. Raid & Simply Be brands are also available in size 9 wide fit.

Affordable prices & discount codes are common.

ASOS offer free delivery (min. spend), free returns & there's a 10% student discount too.

Pavers

Wide fit mainly up to size 9 UK, a few wide size 10s & extra wide 9s & 10s

There are lots of Pavers branches across the UK with Irish branches in Dublin & Cork. They also ship worldwide online.

Not as fashion focused as Evans but Pavers offer a good range of styles including some stylish staples - ballet flats, everyday shoes & boots, slippers etc.

The website has many wide & extra wide fit size 9s in a variety of brands & a small selection of wide size 10s in their own Pavers designs.

Pavers usually have competitive prices & often have shoes on special offer. They offer free returns to store & cheap postal return options.

Some of Britain's most famous chains even have wide fit styles available in size 9 UK. While you can buy these online, they may not be readily available in store though:

Finally, you will find more shoe shopping options in the UK wide fitting and worldwide shipping wide fitting categories in the PBS shops directory.

While it's sad to see Evans stores close, hopefully they will flourish online under new ownership. I hope this list helps you find some new fave shoe stores too. ❤️
