how can it be so hard to find a pair of sneakers??

Recommended Posts

Seriously, how? Shoe stores carry women's size 5 and 5.5 in regular shoes, but the sneakers always start at 6. Yeah, that flops off my damn foot like a clown shoe! (Ok, so maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but whatever, they don't fit me!) So I move on over to the children's department and they have a size 3 (slightly too small) and a five (even bigger then the adults 6, i swear). No 3.5, 4 or 4.5 in sight ANYWHERE, not even in ugly shoes so I can find my real size. I haven't bought a real sneaker in years. I usually buy whatever is cute and cheap when I am in Target or some equal-type store. So where in the hell can a girl find adult sneakers in size 5, I ask? The children's don't have the styles that I would want, but I would suck it up, if they had the damn size I needed. But they don't, which makes me want to hold out for a womens, but I have no idea where to even start looking! Any ideas ladies?

I can get you adidas running shoes in a 5 or 5.5 - I'm assuming by sneaker you mean running shoes, like gym shoes? I just checked and there are at least 3 different models in a 5 and 5.5 Let me know if you want more info!

Ooooh that's nice, you got your own sneaker connection. How cool is that. If that doesn't work you can always try eastbay.com. They have those sizes in kids.

OK, first I am totally jealous that you have such tiny feet. Second, I don't know if they have Fleet Feet by you, but they do a foot analysis to see how you walk and how you wear down your gym shoes and make sure to put you in the right kind of shoe and at the right size. They can be pricey depending on the type of shoe you pick, but at least you know you are getting the right shoe. I would always buy cheap gym shoes and now that I have been fitted I know what the right shoe is. It makes a big difference.

Thanks for the offer, Heather! That's really nice of you. I haven't worn an adidas since shelltops in highschool, so I have no idea how they woudl fit me. I will have to check them out. For some reason I gravitate towards Nike's...

I know right! A sneaker connection, that's pretty cool. I wasn't trying to buy online though, cuz I need to try them on. My feet are small, but they are high, so sometimes I need a bigger size to accommodate my instep.

I am scared to buy sneaks online, since I really want them for comfort so I can begin taking long walks (hopefully working my way up to jogs!)

I was going to suggest Eastbay too, DH & I have been ordering shoes from them since before the internet when it was catalog only (damn we're old!)

They have good selection of styles and sizes, you can search by the sizes you mentioned and they have all kinds of Nikes. Good luck!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
