Drag culture is here and it’s here to stay! As you are reading this, there are more and more people finding their true self by expressing their inner drag queen. Thanks to Rupaul’s Drag Race and the increase of drag representation in mainstream media, drag artistry has exploded over the last decade. We get that some of you might not like the fact that drag has become more mainstream, but look at it from the bright side. More people doing drag means more demand and supply for great (plus size) drag shoes!
As a drag queen there is quite a variety for the type of heels you would want to have depending upon the occasion and your comfort, not to mention, your mood. The days are long past when you had to strive to find a decent pair of shoes for your size, let alone comfortable ones.
We have collaborated with great shoe designers to create a fabulous collection of must-have drag queen shoes. Read on to find out which 5 shoe styles are a must in your drag queen closet.
#1 Kitten Heels:
Kitten heels have been gaining their popularity again after they had their big moment in the 1950s. As the name suggests, they were considered practicing heels for newbies (kittens) who were entering the universe of heels. So it is a perfect pair of heels for a beginner if you want to stay comfortable. The Drag Queen Kitten Heels-Sharon are perfect for Drag Queens who have just started building their wardrobe. The 3.2 inch tall heels are perfect to match your drag style if you tend to walk or dance a lot. You can pair them up with a jumpsuit or a cute extravagant dress and stay comfortable all night long.

#2 Ankle-Strapped Heels:
These are another great choice for you if you want to look stunning and up to date at the same time. If you are a queen who likes to wear shoes with straps on and feel that extra layer of security, then Drag Queen Ankle Strap Heels-Courtney are the best option for you. However, a tip, you might want to keep in mind to choose thin straps if you want to show those legs off as thin and slender. Ankle-strapped heels pairs best with short dresses and skirts as they add a touch of glam and femininity in your overall look.
