Honey, try wearing a size 4! Try out endless.com, amazon.com, 6pm.com (which is a discount sister company of Zappos). Try 6pm daily and you can also sign up for their e-mails, if you so choose, to be kept aware of additional sales.Of course, it also depends on what you'll pay for shoes. Don't ask what I will spend on shoes! Good luck!
This isn't a problem I personally have to face since I have huge feet for my height (I am 5'1" and wear an 8 1/2 or 9- I have a larger frame so I don't look like I have clown feet thank goodness). I used to manage an occupational shoe store and found that a lot of manufacturers did not make shoes to fit a lot of the women with smaller shoe sizes, its like they forget that not everyone out there is tall with big feet (or even average sized).
I feel the same way about the dress shoes. I have gone into rack room shoes and they had a size 5.5 I think. I know how it feels about the wide feet. I get a little corn on my second to last toe, if I don't buy tight shoes then they flop out on my ankle. So either way nothing I wear works right.

I have noticed that the selection is a lot more limited in sizes 5 or 5.5 Just the other day I had chosen this cute pair, and the only had ONE size 5 and it was defective. ugh! Fortunatly I do like usig children's shoes, but they don't do when I'm looking for heels.

Has anyone else noticed that stores are not carrying these sizes anymore? I'm finding it harder and harder to find a store, even a specialty shoe store, that stocks women's 5 or 5.5.
I was recently in a LL Bean outlet store shopping for hiking boots and was told they don't even make a size below 6. What???
I hate it when sales people tell me "just buy a kids shoe" First, I'm not a kid, I don't want purple hiking boots with hearts on them, thanks. Also, it's a known fact that kids' shoes are not made with the same durability or cushioning as adult shoes. I make a point to tell people in these stores that I feel discriminated against because of my size.
Is a size 5 or 5.5 foot that unusual? Am I completely off base?
