Finally a Few Companies that Provide Shoes for Smaller Women

shoesAccording to Perrie Samotin of StyleCaster, smaller women of today are having an extremely difficult time finding the right shoe size. More often than not, if you are a woman with a shoe size smaller than size six, you will most likely be out of luck on finding fashionable and well-fitting shoes. This occurs since the average shoe size of women today stands between eight and a half and nine. Samotin found a list of high fashion brands that provide a range of shoes sizes sometimes starting at size four. J. Crew, Asos, Eileen Fisher and Sam Edelman are just a couple of brands with a wide range of shoe sizes; however, these smaller sizes are typically sold out quick.

Getting the right shoe size is an important part of proper foot health. If you have any concerns about your feet contact podiatrist one of our podiatrists of Achilles Foot and Ankle Group, LLC. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Getting the Right Shoe Size

There are many people that wear shoes that are ill-fitting, which affects their feet and posture. Selecting the right shoes is not a difficult process so long as you keep several things in mind when it comes to selecting the right pair.

  • When visiting the shoe store, use the tools available to measure your foot
  • When measuring your foot with your shoe on, add 1-2 inches to the size
  • Be sure there is ‘wiggle room’. There should be about an inch between your toes and the tip of your shoes
  • Do not always assume you are the same size, as manufacturers run differently
  • Purchase shoes later in the day as your feet swell as the day progresses
  • If a shoe is not comfortable, it is not suitable. Most shoes can’t be ‘broken in’, and comfort should be the ultimate goal when it comes to choosing the right pair of shoes

As our feet hold our body weight and keep us moving, it is important to treat your feet right by choosing the right pair of shoes that can provide them comfort and mobility with minimal pain.
