It’s normally so hard for me to find heels for my small size 5 feet; let alone find wedding shoes!
I keep hearing people say that designer shoes are the way to go for comfort. But most of them don’t even make size 5 shoes.
I want something with a bit of a heel 3-5″, comfortable to be in all day, not uber uber expensive (I’ve been drooling over a pair of discontinued Valentinos that I could never get even if I did have the money).
Anyone in the same boat? Any small footed girls have luck?

@melindabaier: Not much, I take a 4W. I wear girl shoes. 🙁

Mine are a bit bigger than yours at a six. And I really scoured the internet for weeks to find something. I ended up finding not just one but 2 pairs of shoes (Ninas) for under $30 each at Marshalls. I thought I’d try them both on and take one back, but I ended up keeping them both. I know you have look sort of hard there, but they have some really great stuff.

Designer shoes come in 5 and smaller. I have a pair of Jimmy Choos in 4.5, as well as Louboutins in a 4. 🙂 Most of the time I just settle for 5 though.
It’s places like DSW that I loathe because I walk around aimlessly searching for that “special” sticker that indicates a 5 with zero luck. 🙁
As PP said, Nina makes beautiful shoes in a 5. Sometimes you’ll get lucky and find a Nine West in 5 as well. Steve Madden…not so much.
Have you tried Zappos?

I wear a size 5 in dress shoes (5W fits better, but that’s even harder to find!) Touch Ups carries a lot of dress shoes in size 5, and they fit like a 5W for me. Coloriffics also has some size 5 shoes. For my wedding, I actually wore Pour La Victoire shoes in size 6, so I guess their sizing must run small (at least for the style I chose). Good luck!

@melindabaier: Definitely try Nordstrom, they are known for having great “overs & unders” and even have special invitation only events for those ladies with larger or very small sized feet. They have tons of bridal shoes:
ETA meant to add, that link should take you to anything bridal in a size 5.

Both Zappos.com and 6pm.com have great selections, and go down to 4 or 4.5, so they should have some size 5 shoes to check out. I wear a 5.5, which is a little more common, but I love shopping those sites due to the great variety! Good luck, your perfect shoes are out there!

OMG. My damn size 5 feet have tested my patience when it comes to shoes a million times.
Nordstrom is by far my favorite place to get shoes, I think their employees must get some special training on how to help the small footed lol. But for wedding shoes, I just couldn’t find something that fit exactly what I wanted so I ordered through http://www.shoesofprey.com and it has been an amazing experience. I described to them before ordering the troubles I have with fit and since they custom make their shoes they were able to help me out (no extra charge even!), and were even able to tweak the embellishment on the shoe to be precisely what I was hoping for.
