Have you tried www.nolimitz.co.uk/sports in Bedford ? I haven't been in myself but have had them recommended

I was just going to say John Lewis, I was in the one just outsideMachester the other day and they had all sorts. I couldn't believe it, they know middle class people.

Just tried nolimitz, Rosehip. They're currently a strong contender. Will traipse around with family at weekend. Always best to have a main and a back-up plan, just in case.

Try Aro Sports in Hitchin as well Frobester, I would be surprised if they don't do kids as they are well stocked and knowledgable. I used to go there when I lived in Letchworth. And Hitchin is far more pleasant than MK.

My partner is size 2 / 2.5 - yep tiny feet!

Shoe options are really limited with decent foam / uppers. I think there is only ascis and Nike Pegasus. I got her the pegasus 37 and she is really happy with them - quality is great.

I don't see the pegasus anymore but they seem to have other options.
nike.com

If you join Nike Training app / mailing list postage and 60 day returns are free which might help if you can't get to a stocked store

Some of the other Nike shoes run a little small, narrow with a try on, it's possible a size 3 might work but for 2.5 options are really limited so far as I know

oops - just realised I am months late on this. Still any input on show options for small feet is probably a good resource :)

Months late? Try seven and a half years ;)

But - yes - an update on options isn't an intrinsically bad thing :)

Got something to say?
