It is a consequence of the modern shoe manufacturing business. In the US, most shoes come only in regular width (US D), and sometimes in wide. I cannot find *any* shoes that fit in most shoe stores or department stores. Styleforum has been extremely helpful in identifying makers and lasts that do fit. Now, I always search the archives for specific guidance on fit before considering any new shoe purchase. This has helped tremendously.
