Hi all, I'll get straight to the point, I'm a size 9 and I have a fungal nail infection on my big toe which I'm using a polish based medicine on which I'm told will take a few months and the instructions say don't use nail varnish on top. So I'm stuck facing a summer of having no lovely cool sandals or espadrilles with the toes peeping out.

I like espadrilles with a small wedge (not too high - I'm tall) but happy to look at other options. Except gladiator sandals - truly hate those things!! Any thoughts please? It needs to be cool as I can get sweaty of foot in summer!

Oh and nothing too expensive, say £20-25 max. I've looked in my usual places for shoes - Debenhams, new look and some others but nothing takes my fancy.

Argh! Got these delivered today and my stupid hormone ravaged spreading flat feet are too wide for them, not by a huge lot but enough that you can see foot going past espadrille... Help people! I was hoping to wear them Saturday and I don't live near a city!!! confused

Got no advice but didn't like seeing you alone on your thread smile good luck finding your shoes.

My sympathies OP I'm looking wide fit leather sandals with leather insole not that horrible suede feeling insole but as I have wide feet and the beginnings of bunions and a size 8 they seem to be impossible to find . Have you tried TKMaxx online?

Have you tried Yours OP? They are quite good for bigger sizes I think. Couldn't see any wedge espadrilles but they have some flat ones; or maybe some casual plimsolls if that is your sort of thing?

ProfFJLewis Thu 12-May-16 11:12:37

...or some block heels from Tesco?

I'm a size 8 with wide feet. I got lovely silvery/grey glittery canvas slip on shoes from Asda at the weekend - £8!

Honeymoonmummy Thu 12-May-16 20:37:28

Ooh I like the asda sparkle pumps but they're sold out of 9s grr! I haven't tried tkmaxx, will look now thanks all.

Honeymoonmummy Thu 12-May-16 23:13:05

Nothing in TK Maxx. I give up. Thanks anyway all!

Before you give up completely OP, just saw these in Dorothy Perkins in the sale:

Wedge espadrille.

They come in gold and tan as well. Not wide fit but might be worth a try at that price!
