Dress shoes for men with small feet can be difficult to find. There are a few reasons why this is the case.
The main reason is that men in the UK typically have size-11 or larger. This means they are shopping for shoes made especially for men with large feet. And, unfortunately, many brands do not offer small sizes at all.
This article will give you some tips on where to find the right smaller dress shoes for you and help you avoid wasting time at stores that don’t carry your size.
1. Know Your Size
It’s important to know your size before you go shopping for dress shoes for men with small feet.
Most stores and shops do not carry sizing charts, so look for online shops that do have their own size chart. Once you have found a store that carries styles in smaller sizes, look at their selection of men’s dress shoes online.
There are a few different ways to determine your dress shoe size:
- If you already have a pair of dress shoes that fit well, measure the length. Use this information to find out what your US men’s size is for dress shoes from online stores or shops in real life!
- If you’re shopping online and can’t find any sizing information, use an international conversion chart to convert US men’s sizes to UK and European sizes. Then you can use a UK and EU size conversion chart to find out what your US men dress shoe size is in the style that you’re interested in.
2. Know Your Brands
It’s important to know which brands carry smaller dress shoes before shopping so you don’t waste time looking through every online store only to be disappointed when they don’t have your size.
One brand that carries smaller dress shoes is Stravers. They are brilliant at providing shoe sizes that can otherwise be hard to come by as they specialize in smaller size shoes.
Another reason why you should know your brands is that sizing can vary and you should get to know which size fits you.
3. Best Online Stores to Try for Small Shoes
Small men’s dress shoes barely exist in physical stores. With more informal shoes, you can get away with shopping in the boys’ section or having a look at Unisex options. This is not the case for men’s dress shoes.
You can start by trying the small-size collections at Nordstrom and Stravers, for example. Both brands offer on and offline stores with plenty of options to choose from.
