Dear Budget Fashionista,
I wear a size 5 in shoes. Where is the best place to find reasonably priced smaller size shoes?
Where to Find Smaller Shoe Sizes
A: Believe it or not, there’s quite a few, adult, stores to check out for awesome shoes in smaller sizes. Here’s a few stores that carry smaller show sizes:
Online: Try Endless. This site has a large selection of stylish shoes in smaller sizes and tends to have better prices than Zappos (which you should check out, too). You can also check out the online stores of shops like Naturalizers (be careful of the grandma factor), Aerosoles, and Nordstrom sale pages.
Offline: Try the outlets of major department stores such as Last Call Neiman Marcus, Off Fifth, Saks Fifth Avenue, and Barneys New York. These stores tend to carry a larger selection of discounted shoes by European and Japanese designers, whose sizing tends to run smaller than US brands. Also try Nordstrom Rack, Nordstrom’s outlet/off-price store, often has special shoe size events where you can find smaller sizes at heavy discounts. And don’t forget budget favorite stores like Payless, which carry size five shoes at select stores.
