To hate my massive canoe feet?

I'm a size 9, sometimes size 9 wide fit, and I bloody hate it. I'm not on a large income so my shoes are always £20 and under - I can never find them in charity shops and in the shops I can find the size in they're narrow/really high.

Just needed to rant because I'll be damned if I can find a nice pair of every day black flat shoes in a size 9 for £20 or under in the sales. I just wish I was a standard 7/8 so badly. It also means if I ever had the money for luxury shoes no designer bloody caters for my kayak feet.

I'm the same as you. Is there a wyndsors near you? They often have 9s for less than £20. Think you can get them from the website too. I got some lovely Clark's shoes in the sale ... They are school shoes and they cost me a tenner grin

Check this site out. Not loads of styles in your size (but a few pairs of flat blacks!) and they are very cheap, quality is usually OK and they get new stuff in regularly. smile

I wear a ladies' size 12 US which is a UK size 10. I find shoes at Payless, but I don't know if you have the equivalent there. Have you tried

I got a lovely pair of black leather flats, but they are Tieks, considerably more than $20.

Have you tried new look? I'm a size 8 wide fit and find their shoes to be fantastic quality! I'm not sure how to do links and make them all fancy but hopefully this works.

Try Marisota, they're good!

Me too OP, I hate them, but shoe hopping is better than it used to be.

try the asda george range or new look go to a 9 in some styles

Same here, size 9 in round toe shoes, size 10 in pointed shoes.

I usually buy from Brantano or Marisota...

8 wide and agree new look is great. I very rarely even look for shoes anywhere else now.

I'm the opposite...a UK 2! I have to buy heeled boots in a 3 @nd wear really thick socks with them. It's either that or Hello Kitty high-tops! grin
