Buying shoes in Beijing can be a tricky task for expats.
Thankfully, Big Shoe Center in Beijing caters solely
to 'Big Noses' with big feet. Sizes (European) go up
to 44 for women and 49 for men. All the shoes are made
on-site. If none of the styles grab you, the shop also
takes custom orders. Prices are reasonable, and once
you spend your first RMB1000 you get a 20 percent discount
on all further purchases.
