Le Dame offers up stylish footwear for drag performers and cross-dressers

Because men walk differently than women (it has to do with that whole center-of-gravity thing), often it isn't enough for drag performers and cross-dressers to simply wear women's shoes in a bigger size. Instead, they need a shoe that's specially made for them. That's where Le Dame comes in. The shoemaker makes stylish heels, boots, and flats in sizes and shapes that are comfortable and safe for a man to wear. These shoes offer ample interior space to accommodate a wider foot and have reinforced heels that help absorb shock and distribute weight, making them both comfortable and cute. Le Dame offers shoes in women's sizes from 10.5 to 17 wide, and men's sizes from 9 to 15 medium — and every pair is as darling as these frilly pink flats.
