i have big feet and buying 5 that fits me is a big miracle. i live in a country where women have dainty feet... i mean, with the average of shoe size of 6-7... mine is 10-11.. yikes. anyway, i went around yesterday for two hours, just hunting for affordable shoes that fit me. and i found 5 instead...but of course, a couple is a bit tight... i have to stretch them so it will be comfortable to wear. what is your latest shopping escapade?

Good for you! My sister has the same problem. She has a very long foot and there is very few stores that carry her size so when she finds some that fits she buys more then one pair and is sooooo happy that she has a choice when it comes time to dress up to go out or just for around the house. I am glad I don't have that problem. I wear a normal size shoes and can buy shoes anywhere!

thanks for the kind reply. people think, i am quite over-the-top doing this but people who has problems in searching for shoes, does this if they have the opportunity, because it is really really hard hunting for shoes that fits and for the right occasion. it is frustrating when i need a specific kind of shoes and i can't find one that fits. my one and only boots got damage. lately, it has been raining hard here and i can't seem to find a pair that will replace the old one. so my feet gets wet often lately.

Did you invest in 5 shoes? I think you may worry a few days later when you think all the 5 pairs had become old ones. Never buy more than Two pairs. Rest of the money can be used to help others around you. This way you will find that you will have more pairs of shoes than ever before. Try it for yourself.

hi. thanks for the reply. i really bought them cheap, that's why i was able to buy five instead of one of the same price. it was an answer to my prayers. i never indulge in buying expensive stuff. don't worry, i donate and give whether money or in kind for those people who needs help. i just did give both just this week. happy mylotting.

I understand, I too wear a 10 - 11, and it is not always possible to find your size I have not bought shoes in a real long time, can't afford to. But when I was buying, I would mostly buy online. My sister gave me a pair of shoes last year, they are my newest pair.

Great for you! I know how it feels to be able to find some shoes. I am very picky in shoes and I am always looking for affordable and comfortable ones. And when I am able to locate them, I feel so happy. These days, I just bought a few books and magazines and plan to read them religiously when I am at home *laughs*.
