    I will check them out! I live in Birkenstocks but not practical in winter. And my foot is too wide for there boots!

    I seriously would get foot surgery!

    Hello my fellow freak-footed sisters!
    Did someone say shoes?!

    My internet connection is sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo slow tonight so most of this will be off the top of my head but there may be others that I have in my current favourite shoe list.

    I was a petite size 12 before having kids, I'm now a size 13. I have spent my whole life on the hunt for shoes that fit. I have never been able to buy shoes from a regular shoe shop... ever.

    I get my shoes online in the vast majority of instances. There is one shop in Brissy that specialises in ladies large size shoes. I went there once, lovely lady, very helpful but alas I could not find anything suitable (I was looking for wedding shoes at the time.)

    Australian sites: Long Tall Sally, Hush Puppies, Diana Ferrari

    International Sites: Amazon.com (excellent range), Ebay, onlineshoes.com, shoes of prey, Evans (UK store that specialises in large size womens' clothing but also sells some larger shoes - note size differences in UK)

    That's all I can remember off the top of my head but I know I have other links in Pinterest - I just can't get to them now because of my FRIKKIN SLOW INTERNET CONNECTION

    In the meantime - I hope you enjoy this song that was written just for us.

    What type of shoes are you after? Nice casual shoes like ballet flats, or more like sketchers so could be a runner? Or a heel?
    I used to get my runners from athletes foot and they always went up to bigger sizes.

    I have runners. I just want to feel better about myself. I don't dress nice etc anymore since I've had DS (I did even with dd). So wanted to try and spend some money on myself and time.
