When you're on Zappos, be sure to check out some Naots, too! They have some great colors, and some styles are narrow (you may need to visit Naot's site to know which style, but when you view the shoe on Zappos, it will tell you then too).

You may not like Birkenstock shoes, if you have a narrow foot, as the "regular" width of Birks is a mens width, not a woman's, and for most people, that feels wide (good for me and my wide feet, not so much if you're less than a C width). A "regular" woman's shoe in Naots is a B, like "most" shoes, and then some fit narrower than that.

Have fun shopping!

Demonica - that is in fact my favorite shoe of all time !! I have the green/yellow and it was also made in pink/purple, and shades of brown and black. I too found that pair on the web, but that website has a horrid rating with the BBB so I am not going to risk sending them that kind of money. I started the checkout process and they had a "clearance" charge and I didn't seem to qualify for free shipping so this pair was going to cost more than the previous pair and looking on the web there are lots of people who never got the shoes they ordered.
Thanks for looking though !!

I love my Ecco shoes, not sure if they are expensive in the US, they are a bit expensive here but I've had a pair for 2 years and I've just kicked through the toe on one. I have plantar fasciitis and they are really comfy

Ecco, New Balance, Dansko, and Merrells are my favorites but I also have a wide foot. New balance is now doing a professional line of shoes, too.

Happy shoe hunting!

my feet are widish at the front but narrow at the back so a lot of shoes flap around the heels on me, but the Ecco ones I have are nice and tight, I also find Spanish shoes seem to fit me better for some reason

While you're shopping look at Earth Shoes, you may have to search for a store in your area because they are not carried by lots of people, but I LOVE them.

One of my friend has super narrow feet (wears the "Slim" width) and has had some luck with SAS shoes. Zappos doesn't carry them, but you can find stores here: http://www.sasshoes.com/ You can try outlet malls, too. Their shoes are known for being good for people in occupations which have them on their feet a lot (like nursing, for example).

I have LOT's of foot problems, really like this site, and you can find somethings on sale. For my problems, they are better than Zappos, which I also like a lot. Shipping is free over $75.00. Since I only buy a pair or two a year, the prices don't seem so high to me.
