Shoes for Different Sized Feet
Hi, In researching this same issue for my boyfriend who also had a club foot and many surgeries as an infant/child I just came across the information that nordstrom will sell the different sizes at the same price as long as there is a size and a half difference. I am so happy with this find since he has always had to buy two pairs of shoes. this is very generous of them and I am excited to check it out (even though the closest store is 45 min away). I was wondering have you had any luck finding any other places that will do this?
also just found this on another forum
If your size difference is greater than 2 sizes, contact the National Odd Shoe Exchange at 480-892-3484. They cater to amputees but are very accommodating and reasonable in terms of selling two different sized shoes.
Contact major retailers such as LL Bean and Nordstrom, who have been noted in the past for selling two different sized shoes.
Contact Brown's Catalog who will discount 20% of each pair and send you the two different sizes that you need.
Contact ShopNewBalance at 1-877-9SHOPNB (1-877-974-6762).
For example, Nordstrom has the following policy:
If you have two different sized feet, you will order two pairs of shoes (one in each size, but they must be at least 1.5 sizes different). You will be charged for one pair and will be asked to send back the shoes that you do not need back for credit.
If you have the need for only one shoe, a whole pair will be sent to you. Then you will be asked to return the unneeded shoe back. You will be charged accordingly for only one shoe.
The phone number to call for this program is 888-282-6060.
LL Bean has the following policy:
LLBean allows people to order "split sizes"- the size difference can be anything from ½ size difference, and any width difference, to a women's size in one shoe and a men's size in another shoe. They charge 1.5 times the price of one shoe - if one pair is $60, the customer will be charged $90. LL Bean ships the two odd sizes to the customer with no need to return the odd shoes. Both shoes in different sizes must be in stock when the order is placed because they need to compare the shoes to make sure the colors match before they ship the "split size"pair. Please ask to speak with the Product Support Team when you place the order. The Product Support Team can be reached at 1-800-441-5713, seven days a week.
