Ballet flats and boots for slim child

DD has very slim feet (barely a D) and legs and finding shoes and boots is impossible!
Does anyone know a good place to buy shoes for children who are so slim?

My dd is 8 and wears a 34 or 35. Mini Boden did a silver ballet flat last year that were perfect, but for some reason they have really changed them this year and they are now too wide!!! angry
If anyone has a silver pair from last year (with the purple interior) in a 35....I would like them PLEASE!

Also, most knee boots look like wellies on her, but she really likes the style.

James Ingles is a specialist narrow shoe shop- they do mail order- they may not cater for age 8s, but she's almost into grown-up sizes.

My daughter was the same- C fitting in Start Rite- she was in T-bars til she was almost 13!

34/35 is almost a grown up size. <hides tiny size 35 feet under a minuscule cushion>

Yeah, she is just almost there. Most shops start at 35 or size 3.
I will be so relieved when she is a bigger size because her feet have been so frustrating!
She has ridiculously slim calves as well! The Boden super slim jeans look huge on her!

joliejolie there is always duo boots too? They do loads in narrow calf fittings and start at a 35.

I like duo, but they are so expensive!
