No idea, but i'll be checking back here to see what people have suggested! My dd has tried on shoes in clarks where going up a size didn't help her fit in an H too. Thankfully their soft leather ones seem ok (for example these), but I'd love to know if there's anywhere else we can go.
thank you will check out all suggestions. The company in Devon I think a friend of mine used for boots - I remember her saying they stretch them. Will also check out Angulus. DD is gutted as she wants to wear dainty shoes like her friends and can't.
As an adult with size 4 H+ , only old granny shoes would really fit! I wear Skechers trainers (from Schuh) - they were really helpful with finding a comfortable fit and some of the European makes do allow for the high insteps with wide, wide fittings. The trainers lace up closer to the toes so there is room to relax the width a lot. I was a teenager when vinyl pixie boots were the fashion - aagh! the pain! Ricosta lace ups are working well for DD who has sadly inherited my duck's feet!
But Angulus do beeeyootiful cute shoes. Dd2 has these in silver, and they are the funkiest thing ever. I've just bought some purple ones in the sale for her to grow into, which are also deeply adorable.
How about calling this fantastic shop for advice. Our childminder whose granddaughter has super narrow feet swears by it. They never try to sell you shoes if the current ones still fit etc. They have been brilliant for advice.
Have you tried looking at the adult shoes sites for wide fitting shoes? Many of them start at a size 3, you just need to work out whether she is an E, EE (less common but available) or EEE etc. You should be able to get some school suitable shoes. Alot of the shoe are a bit hmmm but it is possible to get some nice shoes too for your dd. wearing shoes that are too big or too narrow cause a whole host of problems later on.
