My name is Cora, and I have Wide Feet, and this is my Shoe Story.
My feet are wide, but not super-wide so about half the time I can still wear standard width shoes, though I sometimes have to move up a size. Other times tell myself I’m in denial that those shoes fit, and I ask myself why I put my feet through the torture of wearing incorrectly sized shoes? A while back I was complaining to my friend Jamie (who has narrow feet) about how hard it is to find shoes that are wide width. Ranted about how I’m so frustrated that while there is some selection online, finding cute, quality wide width shoes in-store is like the holy grail- impossible to find unless you’re Indiana Jones. She listened patiently to my rant, and when I finally stopped for a breath of air, she asked “Are you done? Because DSW carries a big selection of Wide-Width shoes.” Music to my ears!
If you’ve never been to a DSW you should go immediately if not sooner- rows upon rows of shoes. Discounted shoes. Designer shoes, brands you love shoes, running shoes, sky-high heels, Men’s shoes, Kids shoes, Women’s shoes. SHOES. SHOES. Oh My God, SHOES. In addition to shoes they also have a pretty impressive selection of handbags and other accessories. And yes, they have a really great selection of Wide width shoes and wide-calf boots. Halle-lu-yur!
The book “Do You Speak Shoe Lover?” is full of similar shoe stories, and I found it quite cute to read, no wonder it’s a NY Times best-seller! I’m giving away 5 copies of the book this week, Click Here to see how you can enter to win!
