Aug 28th 2006 9:49PM I wear a size 5 shoe and can often wear a 4 or 4 1/2 depending on the style. It is awfully discouranging to see nice stylish shoes and not be able to buy them because they do not come in my size - most shoes sizes start at 6, sometimes 5 1/2. There are some 3's or 4's kids shoes that I can wear for casual. There are some specialty shoe stores that I have to travel a little distance in order to get to them. I have searched on line with very little success and I am afraid to buy a size 5 on-line because it may not fit and then I have to send them back which is a pain. I just wish manufacturers would make smaller women's size shoes.
