How do you buy shoes when your feet are different sizes? For example, my feet are the same length but the arch of my left foot is flat while I have a high arch on the right. So if I get a pair of shoes, the right shoe always seems to fall off when I get something that fits the left. If I get a shoe that fits the right foot, it;s always too small for the left. I always buy the big size although it's not buaetiful How do you buy ?

everyone's feet are a little bit different in size. i used to be a manager of a shoe store and i always told my customers that you have to buy the size that fits your larger foot because otherwise you'll have some problems with the shoes and they won't be comfortable so always go for the size that fits the bigger foot :)

i have no problems with my feet but if i was in your case, i guess i would buy customized shoes. there are a lot of stores where you can buy customized shoes that would really fit you.

Oh man that's really hard. I guess you'll have to buy shoes for the bigger foot and then get in soles for the smaller foot so that it will be somewhat tighter. I don't think any shoe company would want to sell you 2 different sizes of shoes. You can also try buying shoes where you can wear sock so that you can add some width to the smaller foot by wearing thicker socks on it. Hope this helps! By the way, is this genetic? How did you come by two different sized shoes?

My feets are same size and I never came up with one who had their feet sozes different. I suggest you go for a brand store, where they will makes shoes on your need, make you confort, but are same size in looking.
