Do you wear size 4 or smaller? I know the pain of searching for stylish, quality heels because I have small feet myself. For years I resorted to stuffing my shoes with cotton balls not knowing there were options out there for petite women with extra small feet like me. Having tried almost every option, here’s a run down of my favorite places to shop for shoes sizes 4 and smaller.

Nordstrom :: My favorite store to buy shoes because it’s the only store that you can walk in and find a wide selection of designer heels in size 4 Women.  The following brands come in size 4 and 4.5 – Ivanka Trump, Enzo Angiolini, Michael Kors, Nine West, Halogen, Cole Han, Clarks, Jessica Simpson, Sam Edelman, Jeffery Campbell, Vince Camuto and Glint. If you fancy higher end labels such as Louboutin, Gucci, Kate Spade, Jimmy Choo and Milanoo, Nordstrom also carries small sizes.  At the moment Nordstrom is the only merchant that carries small sizes for these designer brands. You will not theme anywhere including the respective designer websites. Starts at $70.

Nordstrom Rack :: I love Nordstrom Rack although the selection here is limited. It’s a hit and miss but sometimes you will find a pair or two designer shoes that are significantly discounted. If you’re planning to shop in-store (I highly recommend this option over online), keep in mind that new merchandise comes in every day from Tuesday thru Saturday. Nordstrom Rack also carries sub brands that sometimes come in size 4, but you have to be out the lookout for them. Starts at $50.

Zappos :: Another great option to find small shoes, although the selection for high heels is limitedly compared to Nordstrom. There is a large selection for comfort shoes and sandals ranging from size 1-5. I have not tried these brands as I’m more a heel girl than a comfort shoes girl. For heels more than 3 inches tall, starting at size 4 you can find them in these brands: Stuart Weitzman, Vanelli and Calvin Klein. Starts at $60.

 Alonai :: This online boutique specializes in extended shoe sizes ranging from 2-14. For sizes 1-6, there are no half sizes available yet.  I own several pairs of high heels and wedges from Alonai. The quality is comparable to Payless and the selection is huge. There is always a sales going on and there are weekly giveaways held on their Facebook page. Starts at $40.

Cinderella of Boston :: My engagement shoes were bought here! This boutique also specializes in small feet with size ranging from 1-5 (half sizes included). The quality is comparable to Alonai, although their shoes tend to be more narrow. If you’re looking for very tall heels (4 inches and up) you will find them here. You can shop online or from their store in Westminster, CA. My sister-in-law absolutely love this place. She’s a 2.5 and practically all of her pumps are from here. Starts at $60.

Petite shoes :: Another online boutique that caters to small feet (2-5, half sizes included). I have not bought any shoes here but from the initial impression, they appear to be in similar quality and price as Cinderella of Boston. There is a large selection of chunky high heels here. Starts at $70.

ShoesofPrey.com :: Can’t find the style you’re looking for in your size? You can custom make your own pair of shoes in any designs on Shoes of Prey. There are templates you can use as a starting point or you can create your own design from scratch. Starts at $200.

    Thanks zozo! It’s a pain sometimes but maybe it’s for my own good. If I were a 5 or 6, I don’t know how many shoe trees I would have accumulated in my room. I have such a weakness for cute shoes. ahha <3
