Free shoes to a good home, again [Jan. 12th, 2006|11:53 am]

I wrote this in my previous post to this community:

I bought some new shoes yesterday, and, since my feet are different sizes, I had to buy two pairs. I think it's such a shame that I always end up throwing out two perfectly good new shoes, but I can never find anyone who wants my unneeded mates. I thought perhaps I could find someone here who takes the same sizes as me on the opposite feet, and if that's you, I'll happily mail out these shoes to you for free. I just don't want to see them get thrown away and go to waste.

Same deal, different shoes. (For someone who claims to hate shoe shopping as much as I do, I certainly seem to buy new ones rather frequently.)

They are women's shoes, white with green stripes on the side, and come with both white and green laces depending on which you want to use. They are all man-made materials/non-leather. The right shoe is a size 7 and the left is a 9.5.

There are sites on the Internet to match you up with someone who's feet are the reverse of yours. Example your left foot = 8, right = 9, you can be matched with someone left = 9, right = 8 to swap shoes if you want to.
http://www.oddshoefinder.com/ -the best known site for shoe swapping
http://www.e-bility.com/shoes/ (Australia)
www.clubfoot.co.uk (UK)

Here is another site that lets you buy shoes 1-at-a-time:
http://oneshoetwoshoe.net
http://www.mixmatchshoes.com - also mentioned above
http://www.toe2toe.com/2_size_feet.htm - dance shoes only?

Wow, I posted this entry six years ago.

Anyway, yeah, I'm sure everyone with different size feet has tried the stuffing method before. That's what my parents did for me when I was a kid. As I got older, it wasn't comfortable and didn't work with many types/styles of shoes (ballet flats come to mind). Plus there's the issue of feeling like I'm wearing clown shoes and tripping more than usual because I'm not used to my foot extending out that far. Out of all the non-ideal options, getting different size shoes usually works the best. If I can find same-size shoes that will more or less comfortably fit both feet, I generally don't need to stuff anything in the toe.

Thanks,
Dee

Try Nordstrom. They put together a mismatched pair of shoes for my daughter at no extra charge. Also great at fitting shoes and very understanding.

I teach therapeutic horse riding and we have a young girl who has two different sized feet. Her grandmother found a site on the internet with hundreds of other people with the same problem and found somebody that actually pays for the set she doesn't need. Worth checking it out as there may be somebody with shoes that will fit you.

shoes

I was born with a club foot in 1966. When I was an infant I had my first surgery then spent about a yaer in a cast. From there went to wearing the wonderful white corrective shoe attached to a bar until I was 6. I then went onto wearing corrective shoes till I was 13. All that time going to physical therapy too. In 1982 had another surgery all went well until about a year and a half ago to present, my foot is in terrible pain. Ifound a foot doc to go see in 03/05/2015. I have 2 sizes different feet my left (CLUB FOOT), size 8AAA, right foot (NORMAL FOOT) size 10AAAA. I buy my shoes at Nordstroms as they will split the sho sizes as long as you have a size and half difference. Hope this helps, Gretchen

Re: shoes

I doubt the anonymous poster you're replying to will check back several years later for a response!

Other people have said Nordstrom, too, but for the prices they charge it's cheaper to just buy the two pairs of shoes at a different store, especially when many places have buy one get one half off sales.
