    Hello,

    Having trouble finding a pair of shoes that fit my feet. Basically, I'm wondering: where can i get 4.5 E / 4.5EE dress shoes (oxfords)? After having physically been to the stores and tried on the shoes at Crockett & Jones, Aldens, Allen Edmonds, and Johnston & Murphys, they all have nothing in my size. Crockett & Jones, however, has a bespoke program ($1,250), but I am not willing to pay that much.

    I'm open to suggestions. Please let me know where i can find a decent pair of shoes that fit my feet.
    My price range is flexible, it is more important that the quality is within the range of J&M on the low end and C&J on the high end.

    Thanks,
    Josiah

    EDIT: I am fine going MTM since I feel like that's the only way I can get shoes that fit correctly. If there are bespoke options near the 600 dollar range then that may work to, but doubtful that such options exist.

    What's your height out of curiosity? Perhaps you if you a see a 5 or 5.5; you can add an insole

    boys shoes.

    seriously. I doubt anyone will have a last modifiable for mtm in that size.

    Your only real option is bespoke, and thats gonna be expensive as shit.

    Haha. I'm starting to think it wouldn't be a bad idea to start a shoe company making decent quality dress shoes for people with really small feet and really big feet.

    market is really too small for that.

    I just can't imagine a grown man with shoes that small.

    even if you could find a quality shoe in 4.5 ... i don't know if you can find a E/EEE width
    that is just a huge outlier
    the shoes are probably as wide as they are long

    I would give these guys a call:

    http://www.wideshoes.com/

    Company called Hitchcock. Looks like they start with a size 7 but seems to accommodate widths. Perhaps they will build something for you in a 4.5 EEE

    I would check out boys sizes for sure - see if you can get something in a E. Also - call the guys at Eneslow in NY and see if they have any suggestions....

    At the end of the day - I hope you can find something ready to wear, however, I think you need to be prepared to shell out some real cash and go MTM. AE might do it for you on a single pair - contact their customer service.
