Small shoes


I am not sure if any of you have this problem but I have size 5 feet and can never seem to find shoes in my size! Any suggestions on where to shop for this in Toronto? Stores like Aldo have limited Size 5 shoe selection. Am I forced to order shoes online?

Nine West

Most shoe stores do carry size 5 but those sizes tend to go very quickly. I know this because I once worked at Nine West while I was at school and a lot of women were looking for size 5. I know that Nine West carries size 5 in pretty much everything, but you need to buy them right away as they rarely last until a sale.

Online, a really good shoe store to try is Endless.com. They have fantastic selection and there is something for everyone there. They are affiliated with Amazon.com and so anything you find on Endless, you can also find on Amazon. They only ship to USA for now. Good luck!

I have midget feet too

I'm also a size five, and it's always impossible to find shoes. So I tend to talk to shoe sales people a lot about it, and each and every one has said that if, IF a line starts at a five, they hardly ever actually get any in-store.

The unfortunate thing about Nine West shoes is that a five in Nine West is still bigger then other brands' fives. One store manager even asked me, "Are you a real size five, or a Nine West size five?"

PS: I shake my fist at Fluevog for ceasing production on 5s and 5.5s, and starting their line at a 6.

I didn't realize Nine West 5's were bigger than everyone else's. Thanks for the tip, ItsAMonkey!

Awww that sucks....

I read the post about Nine West size 5s and I was excited...I am also a size 5. Ah well, back to the drawing board. I know some Aldo stores carry smaller sizes like the one at Fairview Mall etc. but selection is limited and it makes shoe shopping almost irritating. I have to buy shoes right as they come out (can never buy stuff on sale as it is already gone by the time the prices come down). Thanks for the tip with the online store though MissChickie, I will definitely check it out!

Shoe Company

I used to work at the Shoe Company, and most stores specifically have a section for small (5 to 5.5) and larger (size 11) feet
If you go to the bigger locations (Yonge/Bloor and Bathurst/Lawrence) they generally have a much better selection than going to a smaller location.

shoe sole?

I used to wear size 6 but now, I'm finding size 6 too big. I don't know if my feet shrank or if the shoes just got bigger. I can fit in a 5 but I think the best fit for me is 5.5. So now, in order for me to buy shoes, I have to slip a sole in to make it "fit better" but it's not perfect, but for a lot of shoes, it works. The only time I find this solution doesn't work is with nice dress shoes like stillettos. I find the front of the stillettos doesn't have a lot of room, so when I add a sole, it makes the back of my heel fit the shoe but my toes are squished between the top and bottom of my shoe, So my toes end up rubbing against the top and that's really uncomfortable.

So any good suggesstions for soles for small feet?
