Living in a region where people are giants, compared to me, finding shoes that fit my foot size of 35 (5 US or 3 UK) is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Try the Children’s section some might say? But you don’t get chic stilettos and a minimum of 3 inch heels (as I’m always in need of a height boost considering my petite nature) for kids! I love ‘Aldo’, but of all the 14 stores citywide, only two branches stock size 35 shoes, and to top it off, they usually just have one pair, so if another woman with little feet had beaten to me to it, it’s gone for good!
What’s more frustrating is that in most shoe stores, their smallest size is 36! Just last weekend I was at the mall and I saw about 20 pairs of these pastel orange ruffled velvet high-heeled sandals in H&M, which I would’ve bought in a heartbeat and added an extra sole if it happened to be 36, because I loved them so much, but the majority of stock were in size 37s and 38s that would just sit on the shelves gathering dust, when they could’ve at least produced a size 35 to at least have made a sale through me! But you don’t always get what you want.
Because of the scarcity of available shoes, when I actually do happen to chance upon a pair that meets my criteria, I grab it, no second thoughts! Payless’ brand ‘Fioni’ and New Look’s brand ‘Your Feet Look Gorgeous’ have a good range of design and color, for all you girls like me that have a hard time getting a shoe that fits! Prince Charming found Cinderella because of her uniquely tiny feet, hope we’re just that lucky!
