If you have a less than average shoe size, you’ll agree that shoe shopping can be hard. I’m a 5 or 6, depending on the brand. Most stores carry size 6, but almost always in smaller quantities than sizes 7-9. By now I’ve gotten used to hearing my size is sold out. If your feet are smaller, I imagine it must near impossible to find shoes.
Lately I prefer shoe shopping online, where there’s less disappointment. And today I’ve got good news for all my girls with petite feet. There’s an online store that carries shoes specifically made for small feet, starting from size 2, and they ship worldwide. It’s called Pretty Small Shoes, and it’s probably the only place I’ve felt like I have big feet. I was actually afraid the petite ankle boots I ordered might be small (5 is their biggest size), but luckily they fit like a glove.
I know online shopping is still scary to many, but I think it’s the way to go if you’re not a standard size. In my city there are only a handful of stores with petite sections, and I’m pretty sure there are no petite shoe stores. Online you have access to so much more petite fashion, and new brands are appearing all the time. I just know that one day it will be as easy to find petite clothing/shoes as it is to find regular clothing/shoes.
Thanks for reading! How do you feel about shoe shopping?
