Iíve upped my shoe game.

Iíve always been a shoe girl, but I have just upped my shoe game because I have discovered that I can wear big kid sizes. A whole world of cute new athletic shoes just opened up.

And, better yet, the kid shoes are WIDER than the comparable womenís styles. Who knew?

Yes! These are a kids size 4 - I got them when I complemented them on one of my students. She snarkily told me it was too bad I had to wear old people shoes. (For the record, I was 30.) You better believe I drove to the store that night at wore them to school the next day. My first pair of light up shoes.

Have fun checking out all of your new options!

I can wear a 3 1/2 - 4 in kid's shoes, and it totally opens up your shoe game! Glad you discovered the fun shoes!

Iíve always been able to wear kids sizes. The happiest day of my life was when I discovered light up boots. They were so cool.

I discovered that a couple months ago. We went to REI to get me fitted for hiking shoes. Nothing fit comfortably. Then the salesman had me try kidsí shoes. They fit great and saved me a lot of money!

DD26 wears a women's size 6 and can fit into kids' shoes, though she doesn't have any.

Kids Shoes

No one in my circle wears kids' shoes except me. I can wear either size 2,3, or 4. I'm a size 5 in women's but most of the shoes I like start in size 7. It is rare to find so many of you with the same. Kids' shoes rock.

I found this information about sizing kids and women's shoes: https://thekrazycouponlady.com/tips/...st-like-womens

Unfortunately, I have big feet.

Thank you, dutchgirl! That was helpful. I might have to give it a try. I really had no idea! At 6.5/7 shoe size on my 5í2Ē frame, I never thought I had very small feet.
