Blue Suede Narrow Shoes

blue suede pumps

I have been coveting a pair of Women’s Narrow Dress Shoes at Zappos.com for what seems like forever. Each year around this time as the stores start transitioning into Spring fashion, the magazines and store catalogs are filled with cobalt blue dresses, coats, bags, accessories and of course, shoes. and every year I come away from my search for a pair empty handed.  You can imagine my delight then, when I came across these adorable blue suede narrow shoes, today! Not only are they cobalt blue suede, adorable and available in a narrow width, they’re also available in two other colorways:

Black Patent Leather and
Pink Suede

I think I see multiple pairs of the Tany in my future! The heel is a very manageable 2″ and those cutouts on the vamp–how cute are they?!

What about you? Do you like cobalt blue suede shoes? And, while we’re on the subject, do you suddenly feel the need to hear Elvis singing about his own blue suede shoes?

I do! 😉

Narrow Width Pointy-toe Black Patent Leather Pumps and a Barbie-inspired Outfit

 

I was playing with Polyvore today. I love how you can use their templates to create layouts. I stumbled upon a picture of Barbie that is available for sale and decided to use it as the basis of a layout. I felt like a kid again, choosing outfits for my Barbie to wear.   It wasn’t too very difficult to find a lovely array of pink dresses to create a “real-life” inspired outfit based on the print, but just as it is in real life, it was quite a challenge finding a narrow black pointy-toe pump to go with it!   Finally, though, I found a Via Spiga shoe from Nordstrom.com, that seemed just right.

While the pump is actually more of an almond shape, we think it is a stylish yet more comfortable modern alternative that Barbie might approve of!

Stuart Weitzman Lockness Sandals in Narrow!

Loving the Stuart Weitzman Lockness

The other day when I was doing a search for women’s narrow sandals I came across the Stuart Weitzman Lockness Sandal in narrow on stuartweitzman.com and I was a happy girl.  Why?  Well, when I look at it, it reminds me so much of the Kork-ease Ava which was so popular back in the late 1970’s-early 1980’s.

My Old Crush, Korke-ease Ava

Do you remember these platform sandals?  I wanted to buy the Ava so very badly, but they were so wide on my long narrow feet that I could have practically fit both feet in one sandal.  Okay, I’m exaggerating, but still they swam on me!  I was so sad!

Then a year or so ago, with all things 1970’s back in vogue, they re-emerged…and I tried them on again, but once again, as I expected, the style of the sandal hadn’t changesd and they still didn’t fit.   Fast forward to today.  I haven’t even tried the Lockness on yet , but I just had to write about them.  To me, they look like a grown-up version of my high-school fav!  Now I’m dreaming of what I’d wear with them.  Something retro-inspired, for sure.

 

Karen Kane Tassel Tie Emroidered BlouseI’d pair this Karen Kane Tassel Blouse  available at Nordstrom.com and these 7 for all man kind Dojo Wide Leg  7 For All Mankind Dojo Wide Leg Jeans  from Piperlime.com with the Stuart Weitzman Lockness sandals for a 2013 take on 1970’s style.   I’d also add accessories, a fun stringy leather belt and a great bag to complete the outfit.  What do you think of my 70’s look inspired by ‘the Stuart Weitzman Lockness in our narrow width?

 

Where can I find women’s size 4 narrow shoes?

“Where can I find women’s size 4 narrow shoes?”

Over the years, I’ve gotten this question many times.  Here we suggest some possible options:

The first two possible options for women who wear a size 4 narrow are:   Birkenstock and Capezio Jr. Footlight.   The Birkenstock is a comfort clog that is also available in a sandal and the Capezio Jr. Footlight is actually a dance shoe.  The last is Amiana, which is made for both women and girls.

Birkenstock - Boston Suede (Unisex) (Taupe Suede) - FootwearBirkenstock is  a classic clog that will add style and comfort to your wardrobe. ; Soft premium suede upper with a matching adjustable strap for a perfect fit. ; Anatomically correct cork/latex footbed, crafted from cork that is 100% renewable and sustainable, encourages foot health. ; ; Birkenstocks for years because they can be repaired, resoled or even completely renewed. ; Heat Warning – Cork footbeds or EVA soles can be damaged by exposure to concentrated heat. Do not leave your footwear in direct sunlight or in closed cars on warm days. If your footwear becomes wet, allow it to air dry slowly, away from direct heat.  Made in Germany.

Capezio - Jr. Footlight (Black) - FootwearCapezio Jr. Footlight – women begin with street shoe size. ; Man-made upper. ; Scored leather sole. ; Padded insole with arch cookie support. ; Strong 1 1/2 plastic heel and leather top lift. ; Economical tap shoe for stage, tap, jazz, polka or high-kick routines. ; Heel and toe taps not included. Measurements: ; Heel Height: 1 1 2 in ; Product measurements were taken using size 10, B – Medium. Please note that measurements may vary by size.  You may have to size down or up depending on how the shoe fits you. 

*Site Owner’s note:  My daughter in street shoes wears a 7 Narrow.  In the Capezio Jr. Footlight — the best fit for her after numerous attempts was a 6 M believe it or not.  So don’t be afraid to purchase in a few sizes for the sake of comparison.

 

Another suggestion could be Amiana Shoes.   Amiana made for women and girls and is labeled as medium but runs very narrow!   Shoe sizing in Europe is different than it is here in the states.

Amiana - 15/A0677 FA12 (Toddler/Youth/Adult) (Black Kids Suede) - Footwear     Amiana - 15/A5140 FA12 (Toddler/Youth/Adult) (Silver Hammered Satin) - Footwear    When Amy Buckner first designed the Amiana footwear collection in 1984, her goal was to offer cutting edge fashion that was age appropriate. That is still the goal of Amiana kids’ shoes today.  From boots to flats, all of Amiana’s kids’ shoes will coordinate perfectly with the most fashionable clothing. The styles have a women’s feel and look, but are always tasteful and appropriate for girls.  The shoes are handmade with the finest leathers and materials in factories in Spain and Italy.

Did you know that you can convert your size from kids sizes to adult sizes?  Take a look at the Zappos.com Size Conversion Chart.  This might be helpful as you look at the Amiana shoes.

Have you found size 4 narrow shoes in other brands that you’d recommend?  Please let us know!  We’ll add them to this post!

POINTY TOE PUMPS

We like the snake embossed detailing at the vamp, which just adds a little something extra to an already elegant shoe!  Have you seen some of the trendier pointy pumps out there, though?  They are so pointy that it hurts just to look at them!  That’s why the Elkan is our pick for the season — the point isn’t too, too pointy and we like the little kitten heel, which is much easier to walk in!
