I ordered some Bess wedges in a 7 AND 8 and neither bloody fit. 7 too tight, 8 just a bit too roomy. I have sandals in a 7 which are okay, teensy bit small but as open heeled it doesn't matter.

I want some Yedi's, does anyone have them if so... help meeeeeeeee

or the bali wedges
or any of the yuna types

I hate ordering online.

I have the Yuna ones (I think that's what they're called) and another pair that I can't remember the name of. I would generally have to try on a 7 and an 8 in shoe shops because the sizes can vary. So 7/7.5 in Clarks for example, 8 in LK Bennett. I wear an 8 in Fly.

I have some wedges in a 5 and they are really tight! I have been assured they give a bit but I don't know that I can keep them on long enough to try.

They are quite narrow fitting, rather than short, so going up a size often doesn't help.

I have some Yori ones and some Yedi ones in size 4 - they are quite snug compared to other shoes I have in the samae size, but I have narrow feet so they are good for me.

My friend is a size 7 to 8 and she always struggles to get them to fit, but she currently has some open toe sandles in an 8 (can't remember their name) and they are a good fit.

I love their shoes, I also have a flat pair (MISO I think!) for sensible work and a pair of boots! blush

Thanks, wish I could go and try some on.

TFM, the problem was that exactly - the 8's were perfect on the width but the 7's then pinches too much at the toe. Pain in the arse.

I am normally a 7 but have some Merrell sandals in an 8 (well - a 41) that are perfect. Trial and error then or find a shop that stocks them!

Bluebump my mum used to tell me she would soak scrunched up newspaper, put it into tight shoes, then let it dry out and they'd be stretched a bit... if you're feeling desperate!

lipstick that's useful, I'll try some Yedi's in an 8 then and send them back if I have too, if I can't find a shop.

andlipsticktoo Sat 20-Jun-09 18:55:45

These ones are my current favourites, and are open toed for larger feet!

Ah, the flat ones I have are called MISTY not miso! They are really wide - not like the Yori or the Yedi stlye.

Blimey blush sorry that sounded really rude! Didn't mean it to be at all. (larger feet comment)

Office usually stock them if you want to try on. If you have prime Amazon do free returns.

burningupinspeed Sat 20-Jun-09 19:07:53

LOL, that didn't sound rude I am tall so they suit me! I like those but not sure about an ankle strap, could try I suppose... I like the Misty ones, they look similar to these which I fancy in green for work...

Wonder if there's an Office near me... thanks Heated

I have these & I am slightly wide of toe and narrow of heel = ducks' feet!

burningupinspeed Sat 20-Jun-09 19:42:38

They're nice, look high though. Hmm think my feet might be a bit duckish too. Never thought of it like that!

janeite Sat 20-Jun-09 19:48:28

I think they come up a bit big and a bit wide. Mine are very uncomfortable - shame because I really like them.

brokenspacebar Sat 20-Jun-09 20:49:20

I have the Loll wedges, in red, they are so comfy, I think they are quite a generous 5.

Doyouthinktheysaurus Sun 21-Jun-09 18:53:25

I tried on the Yuna and found them too narrow. My feet are actually very narrow and normally I struggle with shoes being too wide but I found my foot bulged out of the open bit in the middle of the shoe and was very uncomfy.

In the end I bought the Yori which are enclosed and not especially summery but I look forward to wearing them later in the year. They are very comfy.

burningupinspeed Sun 21-Jun-09 20:23:01

Hmmmm. I really like the Yori which figures as I own these - too alike to justify I think.

Going to see what John Lewis (!!!) have tomorrow.
