I have US size 11 Wide women's feet. We went to Payless Shoesource first (for those not in the US it's sort of a cheap store but has decent shoes) and that had nothing. Famous Footwear next - nothing. Sports Authority was our last hope for the day. Nothing. So we moved into the men's section, and browsed for a while. After a long time, although I had been searching for both dress shoes and sneakers, I pulled out a pair of black hightop Converses (now THEY said they were size 9.5 mens, 11.5 womens.) Even though the men's 10 I tried didn't fit. Whatever. *sigh*
Anyway, I like 'em. Ought to be better than the old, beat-up, drawn-on ones I have now. I now have three pairs of functioning sneakers - one entirely black, the Cons and the ones formerly mentioned. And one pair of painful dress shoes. Yay.
