Sick and tired of having to buy men's shoes to get wide fitting. Do manufacturers assume women have long skinny feet? I've heard it so many times - since I was getting fitted for school shoes when I was 5. [I'm now 57]
"Oh yes, Madam, children's feet are wider these days" [in the 70s when I was tiny and my Mum had to buy nurses' moccasins to get them wide enough] - so why not make wider shoes then?
Fast forward to 2021 - "Oh yes, women's feet are wider these days, but you'll have to buy men's shoes if you want wide ones" - so why has nothing changed?
At the end of the day, I choose mens shoes as I can't stand the pain otherwise, but just can someone explain why??
