Hi smiles I feel your pain as I too am an 8 and find it impossible to find nice shoes, boots etc., Next now do up to size 9 on most of their range and you can order them online for next day delivery!!
I got my wedding shoes in Aibheil, Adare and they were really nice and helpful and had a good range in stock.
Hope this helps.
ditto have had size 8 feet since i was 11 and it got to stage shoeshop owner would say if they fit take em cos i used to get so upset about shoes
survive in my mbts
I agree about Next, my sister has ordered a couple of pairs of shoes from them and I never have a problem getting shoes there once I'm early enough in the season to get the bigger sizes. Also New Look do up to a size 8 and Dunnes have a size 7.5 that fits my foot. Doc Martin are another good option (tho maybe not for a wedding shoe!!) HTH
Hi, I'm also a size 8 and my sister is a size 9. Its a pain in the ass trying to get shoes, but at this stage I have learned to avoid certain shops (River Island, Oasis, etc) as I just feel like an elephant trying to ram my foot into their teeny tiny shoes
Peaseblossom,I have tose mbt,s also!My friends reckon they make my feet look even MORE MASSIVE!
I feel your pain smiles. I am also a size 8 ie. 42 as per Clarks. It drives me mental when the poeple in shoeshops try and tell that 41 is an 8. It's not. If Clarks the original shoe people say it's a 42 then it's a 42. Anyway Evans do size 8 but are usually wide fitting. Barrats do some shoes in a 9 as do Clarks. I always check the websites and then go into the shops as often the sales assistants don't want to bother ordering/ checking if shoes come in an 8. Also cinderalla shoes in Arnotts.
There are a good few websites too but I'm always a bit dubious about not trying on first.
