I Canít Find Any Shoes That Fit Me

I am a 38 year old man in the UK with small and very narrow feet (approx size 7, D width) and I cantí find shoes that fit me in the normal high street shops. I end up wearing shoes that are too big for me which is giving back trouble and plantar fasciitis. My main pair shoes for work make my feet hot and sore even in cold weather. I have twice tried having some shoes made but the first pair did nít fit and the second pair aggravated my back trouble.

Does anyone know of anywhere I can get some independent advice on where to buy shoes or have shoes made?

Look up New Balance, they are ot just sport shoes, they also make some nice dress shoes, and wide widths are available.

Re: I Canít Find Any Shoes That Fit Me

are there special shoe stores for people with wide or narrow feet? you have to keep trying different brands. also, look up specialty shoes on the internet.

Have you ever tried women's shoes? (sneakers, loafters, etc). If your feet are very narrow as well as small, it really might work better.

Have you tried MBTs? They are pricey but with the right fit they are worth every pound, in my opinion.

Maybe try a pair at "Back In Action" 11 Whitcomb, Trafalgar Square. They also have stores in Bristol and Marlow.

I too am interested in MBT shoes. I read about them on another forum. I wish I knew someone who has purchased them and for what reason. They have web site.
