Review: Shoes of Prey

Since I love finding companies that make shoes in smaller than a size US 5, a reader emailed me to  suggest I check out Shoes of Prey. Offering the ability to custom make “bespoke” shoes, this company comes in as small as a size US 3! So this is how it works: You can explore the “Ready Made” options, which are pre-designed shoes, currently available. These shoes are ready to ship, but size availability is limited to what’s left in stock. If…

Where To Shop Size 4 Shoes and Smaller

Hi, everyone! It seems a lot of questions about size 4 shoes have been coming through my inbox lately, so I wanted to post a refresher since this info can be found sprinkled around the blog, but I don’t think in one handy place. As always, feel free to post any helpful info I may have missed in the comments. Do you know where I can find small size shoes in size 4 (or size 3, or size 2)? Do you know where I can buy small size shoes that ships…

Small Shoes – Pretty Small Shoes

Many petite women also need petite shoes. I’m lucky enough to be a size US5, but I see a lot of comments and read a lot of emails from women who are anywhere from a women’s size 2 to 4.5 shoe, and have a horrible time finding stylish, chic shoes in their size. I’ve shared a few other companies that make small shoes, so be sure to check those out too if you’re a small shoe size. Now, let’s talk about Pretty Small Shoes. This company makes shoes

Review: Emyloo Shoes

Emyloo Shoes “Madison”, size 5.5 – No longer available **UPDATE** Emyloo Shoes was kind enough to give us a coupon code! Use code AN2011 for $10 off at checkout. Good through November 30, 2011. I wear a pretty solid size 5 shoe, which is becoming harder and harder to find these days. Stores are beginning to stop carrying this size (I don’t even bother going into the Bloomingdales shoe department anymore, and I got unceremoniously rejected from…

Online Shoe Repair – Cobbler Concierge Review

Get 15% off your first Cobbler Concierge service with this referral link. Hi everyone! Today I wanted to share my experience trying out a new shoe repair service called Cobbler Concierge. It’s important to be vigilant about the state of the soles of your shoes, and I always mean to take them to a cobbler for some TLC, but never seem to get around to it. Then one day, I took a good look at my beloved velvet smoking slippers and was horrified to…

Shoes in Small Sizes (US 2-5): Pretty Small Shoes

Based in the UK, Pretty Small Shoes is by far the best looking collection of small sized shoes I’ve come across. With a lot of designer inspired styles, these shoes look modern and sleek. Some of my favorites: These sky-high, platform, “Killer…

My Secret Weapon: Cole Haan Shoes

Being 4’11”, heels are very handy at improving my ability to interact with society on a more level playing field. Things like ordering a beer is made easier when I can see over the bar, and I find I get nearly tramped in crowded areas less when I’m a more visible 5’2″ in a pair of 3 inch heels. Not to mention the awesome ability of heels to lengthen the leg line, straighten posture, and polish off an outfit. I suppose what I’m getting at here…

Store Visit: Cinderella of Boston

One of only a very few companies that exclusively makes and sells small shoe sizes, Cinderella of Boston has been properly heeling women wearing shoe sizes 2 to 5.5 since 1939. I had the opportunity to visit the Cinderella of Boston store in Westminster, CA, to see the merchandise first hand. While there, I also got to chat with the company’s merchandise buyer, learned all kinds of fun facts about shoes and fit, and got to run around the store…

Pretty Small Shoes – Revisited

Pretty Small Shoes, Lu Lu Pump, Indy Pink Leather, size 34 with 8cm heel After my first pair of Pretty Small Shoes turned out to be too big, I re-ordered, this time a size smaller. This pair of size 34 fit nicely in the heel and along the sides, but need a bit of stretching in the toe box before I can comfortably wear them out. I also had to stretch the toe box of my size 5 Cole Haan grey suede shoes, which I find gives me a better fit in the…

Obsession: Grey Suede Shoes

I bought my Cole Haan grey suede pumps earlier this year, and they’ve sat mostly unworn because I was waiting until Fall to bust them out. Now that the weather has started to cool down, these babies have proved their worth as an investment, as I’ve somehow found a way to wear them with EVERYTHING!  Suede is such a great texture to add to your outfit, and goes great with the cashmeres and silks of Fall/Winter. Grey is also a great color because…

The Secrets My High Heels Are Hiding (How To Make Heels Comfortable)

I vividly remember the exact day I decided I was going to grow up, and be the type of woman who wears high heels. At 16, I was interning at a law office over summer vacation. On my lunch break, I watched two stylish young women cross the street from an office building, confident and sexy in their heels. Something about the way they looked and the way they walked really struck a cord with me, and I remember thinking to myself, “I want to be…
