Default Help! i need a pair of cute, low-heel white casual sandals!

the only problem is that i have a narrow foot and need either a N or A width. I see so many cute sandals but they only come in medium, grrrr :evil:

I have hard to fit feet as well, and I've had amazing luck shopping for shoes online. My favorite site is www.zappos.com, they have free shipping & returns! You can search by narrow shoes, then filter down to your size.

Good luck and happy shopping!

Lisa:

Is there an older shoe store in your town, not a chain? We have an Alec's Shoe which has been in business on Main Street for over 75 years. Its a family owned and operated store and they can order your size if they don't have it. Customer service is wonderful. While they are a little more expensive than a mall chain store I think they're worth it for the service alone. If you have one that might be your best bet.

I've had good luck with Zappos, too. And the shoes come right away. I usually get mine on the third day after I place the order.

thanks ladies, i have had good luck with Zappos, Shoebuy.Com, i order a lot of my shoes from Maryland Square and Massy's catalog. I found some really cute sandals in the latest Massy's catalog and was so terribly dissapointed that they didn't come in narrow, waaahhh. Found the same thing on Zappos, the style selection was very, very limited and i was very disappointed. I guess the shoe manufactures don't think that ladies with narrow feet wear cute sandals
I'll keep on searching, i am open for any ideas. Nordstroms.com comes to mind. All i have in my area are the chain department stores(Filene's, Pennys) and they don't carry narrow and won't order them for you.

Trip - since Macy's had bought out Filene's and is turning Filene's into Macy's is there a ray of hope?

I found a nice pair at Payless Shoes. They had so many choices. I'm just glad I found some.

Default I found them!!!

I went back to Zappos, adjusted my search criteria and found a really cute pair of Naturalizer slides. I can't wait to get them, the best part is they were only $45.00!

Default Help! I Need a Pair of Cute, Low-Heeled White Sandals

Lisa, I sympathize! I wear a D width. Shoe mfrs. simply don't make stylish, cute shoes in a wide width. They also think that women with wide feet don't want to qwear pretty or trendy shoes, either. Grrr!

I bought a cute pair of Tommy Hilfingers in a store called Shoe Dept. they were a low heeled slide in wedge sandal and they came in several colors and widths and were only $30!

I bought mine in white and love them! I need a wide width and usually hae to go up in size-but that does not look so good in a sandal as you can see the shoe is too long-it was nice to get a pair of shoes in the wide width I need.

I don't **need** shoes right now, but you've given me some great sources. Hey, it's a rainy day, I might as well shop online!

I see wide widths all the time, but us skinny footed girls have a harder time (I think). I too wear a narrow and for some reason, sandals are almost impossible to find in narrow. I end up wearing sandals that are really a bit too wide...
