    Hello Everyone,

    I’m looking for ideas for shoes. I’m not a high heel type of girl (at least not yet). I’m looking for something comfy that isn’t a tennis shoe that would go with a dress or jeans. As my first time purchasing women’s shoe I would like to keep in simple and inexpensive.

    Also, how does one workout their shoe size in women’s shoe sizes? I measured my foot and it is 10.5 inches with the widest part of my foot being 4 inches across. Looking at all of my man shoes, I see that I wear anything from a 9.5 to a 10 in a men’s shoe.

      I generally wear a size 9 in men’s. but once in  while an 8-1/2. I have a pretty large collection of womeen’s and they are all size 10. I do have a few that are too small that I should part with, but I have found that well known USA brands a size 10 fits me well. The sizes that don’t fit are odd, “no name” brands from China.

      If you wear a 9-1/2 to 10 in men’s I would say 11 to 12 will fit. As for style, perhaps a lower wedge sandal, or there are many low heeled dress shoes  with a broad heel.

      Trying to buy shoes for someone else is difficult! What you like,  I probably won’t! There are many online shoe stores that will do free returns, Zappos, Amazon and others. Buy, try and return, as long as they are in new condition.

      Hi Ladies, thanks for all of the great shoe advice. I’m still searching but all of this information is very helpful. Sorry for the slow reply, Margo hasn’t been able to surface for a while.

      Have a great day!

      Most men’s shoes are D-width; most women’s shoes B-width. I would guess you to be 11 Wide or 12 Regular in most ladies’ shoes. If possible, shop in-person until you know, and a good place is Shoe Show. DSW may also have some. I’m a 13 W, and I mostly wear ballet flats or wedgies; they go with most outfits. And if you search, you can probably find some boots or ankle boots to fit you.

      You’re lucky. You’ll wear a ladies size 11 to 12. That means you can find shoes at most places. It tough when you wear a ladies 14 to 15. 😞 a wedge or a Kitten heel is a good start. Amazon is always a good place. If they don’t fix exchange em.

      I think most charts will suggest that women’s sizes are about 1size bigger than men. I had some pretty good luck ordering from Belk. Prices are moderate for basic shoes.
      You look thru the forums, as there are many past discussions on this issue. A lot of good advice there.

      I have found going up two sizes from my male shoes works for me when buying my heels.

      The shoe stores are flooded with simple flats and some are even cute. DSW has great selections at reasonable prices.

      Hi Margo,

      How about a low heel, also called a kitten heel? Mules or sandals with a low heel or a block heel, could work nicely with a dress or jeans in the summer.

      There are all sorts of conversion charts available online for shoe sizes. Best thing is to get an accurate measurement of your largest foot. Sounds like you have done that.

      Nothing beats trying on shoes in person. You could probably find something at a store like DSW which carries up to women’s size 13.

      – Robyn
