I never used to understand the whole “shoe crazy” thing, to me shoes were annoying, often painful not only to wear but to find. My feet are 26cm long and 10cm wide equating to a size 9.5 – 11 depending on the make, height, fabric and design. For me shoes were a puzzle that were a pain in the ass to solve. What does one do when they have no shoes? They wear Havianas.
Since I started blogging about my outfits and instagraming them people have commented on my lack of proper shoes making my outfits look unkempt, that it just looked lazy and I guess in a way they were right. When I went to NYC I only took two pairs of shoes, my clear jelly flats and my thongs, that’s it! Everyone thought I was crazy but I knew the US was ahead of Australia when it came to wide fitting shoes and I planned to stock up. Needless to say I came home with nine new pairs of shoes, all within my budget and you still can’t wipe the smile off my face.
It would seem Target is upping their game when it comes to sizing and fits in the shoe department. There are no dedicated “wide” sizes but I can tell that’s just around the corner. How can I tell? Well for the first time in years their shoes fit me! Affordable, on-trend shoes that fit my less than dainty feet… WOOHOO!!! Oh and just for bonus points they also sell shoes online now, so no need to drag Aidan around whilst I make life defining decisions like the choice between a wedge or heel. Important issues people.
Yes Target, good things ARE happening!
Despite what some people might think, I don’t have a regular budget for new clothes or shoes. However now I know I fit some of the new gorgeous sandals I might have to give in occasionally, you know for Aussie Curves… it’s considered “work” right? I mean, with some shoes priced from as little as $8 and the fancy heels at around $40 that’s doable in my opinion, I’d call that fair. Sure beats having to ship from the US or UK!
