As a child, buying shoes was a humiliating experience for me. I can remember having to buy the “orthopedic” type shoes because that was all they had in my size, or buying men’s shoes or sneakers. Even my mom would tell me if my feet got any bigger, I would have to wear the boxes! My father was a shoe buyer for a shoe store, and even he could not find me any fashionable shoes. Getting older has certainly been better for me!! I was a size 12 until I had my daughter 3 years ago, now I am a 13, and I am so blessed that I can still be fashionable thanks to the choices at DesignerShoes.com!!
