We feel the pain of women with Amazonian feet -- their dismay in the aisles of the chain shoe stores with those itsy-bitsy cute mules and boots and stacked heels, and one measly rack of just plain ugly flats in sizes ten and up. We are equally sympathetic to the plight of East Bay drag queens, searching in vain for a fabulous pair of pumps. Rocsil's has heard your cries of despair, girlfriends. It stands ready with a wide range of dressy and casual shoes in the more generous sizes and widths. We are especially drawn to the strappy stiletto-heeled red patent-leather pumps and the faux-snakeskin calf-enhancing boots, but there's a bit of everything in this footwear heaven, which is also notable for its friendly yet nonintrusive salespeople and a wide variety of fancy hats and handbags, suitable for church or the runway. If Rocsil's doesn't have those pastel tennies or iridescent lizard pumps in your size, they'll be happy to order them for you. And there's a wig shop right next door if you really want to change your look or complete an ensemble.
