I’m always on the look-out for nearly narrow shoes that I can offer as additional options for my stylish narrow shoe clients. Though they aren’t labeled narrow per se, Amiana Shoes may appeal to tweens, teens and women with small slender, narrow feet, who struggle to find designer shoes in their smaller hard to find size. Especially notable is the fact that the first line in the description of the shoes is: “Amiana dress shoes tend to run slender. It is recommended that you order a half size up for this item.” I don’t know about you, but when I read a description like that about shoes, I want to jump for joy!
Each of the styles have a women’s 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. Designer Amy Buckner first designed the Amiana footwear collection in 1984. Her goal was to offer cutting edge fashion that was age appropriate and that goal continues to this day. Whether it’s sandals, pumps, boots or flats, Amiana shoes coordinate with the most fashionable clothing.
Here are five of our favorites along with their descriptions:

My 14 year old [teenage] daughter has narrow feet and small ankles. She wears a girls size 4 maybe a 5 now, I’ll need to measure her feet. Need help finding shoes to fit her that are not childish as she is a teenager. Please help me! We need to find some summer shoes for casual as well as for church (with a heel preferably)…..My daughter would like a dress shoe for summer with a wedge heel type. Or a dress shoe with a low to medium heel. Also she needs sandals for this summer, casual and also dressy ones for church. She likes straps, but no strap between the toes, and colors she likes is pink, black, white, gold, silver, blue, and she like camouflage design. She also needs outdoor shoes as well as tennis shoes. I know it will be difficult and thank-you for trying. I hope you are able to find something, thanks from the bottom of my heart!
It’s our pleasure! Here are 8 suggestions for you for starters and we can narrow it down from there (yikes-pardon the pun).
First, let’s try to figure out her size — if she is size 4-5 in girls sizes that converts to a size to somewhere between a 5.5 – 7 in women’s sizes, so we need to get a measurement of her feet first. You can measure both, but the size that we’ll need to fit is her larger foot size. Usually one foot will be a bit larger than the other. Most of these shoes are only available starting in Size 6 AA with the exception of the Topsiders which are available in 5 and 51/2 or 5.5 AA.
While I’m waiting for the measurements, though, here are a few that you and she may like (Some of the shoes are available in other colors than the ones I’ve chosen):
1) SOFTWALK SAN MARINO
I wasn’t sure about this wedge because it is higher than you asked for but with the 1 inch platform height will counter balance the three inch heel and it will feel more like a 2 inch heel. The adjustable hook and loop closure will give your daughter a tight and supportive fit around her small ankles and around the ball of her foot. It also has great narrow shoe reviews!
I also recommend Foot Petals to put at the ball of her foot to keep it from slipping forward in any or all of the shoes if need-be.
This one is a little sophisticated, but perhaps she’ll like that for Church. It’s available in a few different colors, too and I like that it’s a flat–I think she could dress it up or down depending on the color of the shoe and the outfit she wears it with.
3) BEACON SHOES – NEWPORT
Espadrilles are back and these are available in white and black in a 6 narrow.
4) MUNRO AMERICAN JERRIE
Smoking Slippers were really hot this year and this one is available in the patent leather and leopard in size 6 AA.
5) MUNRO AMERICAN JILLIAN
A regular old pump, but a good choice for Church.
6) VANELI SERENE
and here is Sperry Top-Sider – Angelfish in Black - in 5 and 5.5 here. I think the Sperry Angelfish is a lot of fun. I chose the Linen/Berry Floral since you said she likes pink!
8) BELLA VITA WOW
and the Bella-Vita – Wow is in Black Patent can be found here among other colors, as well. I think this is a lovely and sophisticated shoe that she will get lots of wear out of.
I hope that at the very least you and she will like at least one pair of these shoes and hopefully more than one. If not, we can try again. What do you think?

Why post about a nearly narrow Isaac Mizrahi Pump, when we’re called thenarrowshoe.com? When we find a shoe that fits our narrow feet, we here at thenarrowshoe.com can’t wait to share the news. That’s why we had to post this review of this “could-be narrow” — what we call “nearly narrow” pointy-toe kitten heel Isaac Mizrahi Pump. My daughter and I couldn’t wait to try them on and unbelievably they fit our narrow AA feet and they were comfortable, too!
Yesterday, my daughter and I went to the mall in search of something for her to wear to a special family occasion that will be coming up in May. I always like to park in the same general vicinity so it’s easy to remember where I’ve left my car, which just happens to be right in front of Nordstrom. On either level, as you walk in, the shoe department is pretty much right there to greet you — no accident, I’m sure. Anyway, after successfully finding not one but two dress choices for her to wear, on the way back to the car we decided to take a quick peek in the shoe department, knowing all too well that our chances of finding a pointy-toe kitten heel pump in narrow, were slim to none (yes, pun intended); but we decided to give it a try, anyway.
We picked out various shoes that we liked hoping that if they weren’t available in the store in narrow, they might at least be available online in narrow and we could order them, right then and there. As we searched around, we came across Janis in Linen and Black and we both swooned. I quickly checked on line to see if it was available in narrow and of course,
it wasn’t. That would be too easy, right? As I looked at the shoe, though, it looked narrow enough that I thought maybe, just maybe, it might fit my long narrow feet (and quite possibly my daughter, too, who has small narrow feet — lucky her)! We bravely walked up to the salesperson and asked for our shoe sizes and I then I asked the second of my two most dreaded shoe shopping questions: “Does it run narrow?,” [the first being, Do you carry this shoe in narrow?] to which he replied, “Yes, and it runs long, too, so I’ll bring out it out in your size and one size smaller so you can compare.” At that point we dared to hope this adorable pointy toe-kitten heel might actually fit one or both of us. As luck would have it, it fit us both and true enough, one size down from our actual shoe size. My daughter decided to take the Black/Linen polkadot pair below. I couldn’t decide between the two, so I took both! The salesperson said they’d just put out the shoe for the first time on Saturday and by yesterday (Monday) they were almost sold out!
If you are interested in purchasing them and they are selling out so quickly at Nordstrom, if you can’t find them in your size at Nordstrom, you might find them in Linen/Black and Black/White Polka Dot at Zappos.com or at Macys.com (Linen/Black only). Good luck! Order quickly before they’re gone in your size.
We hope they fit you as well as they fit us and that you enjoy them for a long time to come. As a post script, it might be wise to spray them with a product like Scotchguard to keep them free of stains!
*Please note that we will not be placing this pump in out Store because it isn’t a true narrow and we don’t want to mislead our customers. However, I was so excited to find that these shoes fit and were comfortable that I just had to share!
When it comes to Mad Men, well, we get pumped! Pumped, that is, to pair our favorite narrow Mad Men inspired pumps and shoes with the wonderful costumes they wear. An April 4, 2012 slideshow on vanityfair.com traced how costume designer Janie Bryant executes Joan Harris’ style. We adore this outfit and found some contemporary Mad Men pumps we’d pair with it!
If we were to pair her style with contemporary shoes of today that mimic the styles of yesterday, we’d add this amazing Donald J. Pliner Leather Peek-a-Boo pair of narrow Mad Men pump shoes to the ensemble, which included this amazing fawn-colored knit two-piece along with her signature gold pen-necklace.
Find this Mad Man inspired narrow pump and shoes in narrow 2A, 3A and 4A at Amazon.com! Would you wear a stylish sweater dress and these sexy narrow Mad Men pumps to your office? We would in a heartbeat! <3
We were very excited when we found a Munro American Suede Sandal, the comfortable Elise. This comfortable narrow sandal available in N (Narrow) or AA and SS (Super Slim) or AAAA in Stone Shimmer Suede and Black Shimmer Suede is considered a Summer sandal but we think you’ll enjoy wearing it in late Spring and early Fall too!
What are your thoughts on the Munro American Elise? We’d love your feedback!

It’s wedding season and guests, bridesmaids and maybe even a few brides will be looking for women’s narrow silver sandals to wear with their lovely dresses. Here are our top 7 (up from 5) from Vaneli, David Tate and Stuart Weitzman:
1. We’ll call this newly available Silver Vaneli Sandal our new #1 because we just found out about it and it’s so pretty!
2. and we’ll call this one #2 now because it’s the same new Vaneli sandal in a multi-silver color:
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!
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.
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.
I’d pair this Karen Kane Tassel Blouse available at Nordstrom.com and these 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?
