women's shoesWhere can women shop for shoes?

Women or men can shop for women's shoes either online or at a retail store location.  You can find a list of women's shoe stores at the women's shoe store section here on Apparel Search. 

You should probably check the shoe departments at stores such as Nordstrom, Macy's, Neiman Marcus, Barney's New York, Lord & Taylor, etc. If you have a particular style in mind, you can narrow your search by shopping at women's athletic shoe retailers or women's high heal shoe stores.

What are the best women's shoe brands?

Well, that question is rather subjective.  Who am I to determine the best brands?  When you think of the "best" are you thinking in terms of best price, most popular, best in the United States, Best in Italy, or possibly the footwear brand with the highest international sales volume.  Anyway, I am not going to claim to know the absolute best shoe brand for women.  You can do your own research in the women's fashion brands section here on Apparel Search.  OK, here are a few hints...  You may want to investigate Armani, Jimmy Choo, Burberry, Valentino, Nike, Yves Saint Laurent, Adidas, Tory Burch, Vans, Merrell, Dolce & Gabbana, New Balance, Timberland, Converse, Puma, Rockport, Dr. Martens, etc.

Shopping tips for buying women's shoes.

When selecting footwear check more then just the length size.  Regardless if you are a size 3 or a size 9 1/2, you should also check the width of the shoe for that perfect match to your foot. Ladies footwear widths typically come in widths such as 3E, 4A, 4E, A, AA, AAA, B, C, D, E, and EE.

Be careful when shopping in Europe or the United States (or other countries).  You will find the labeling of sizing differs.  If you have large feet, you may want to try the wide women's shoe retailers.

When shopping, you will need to try and focus on a particular category (unless you have plenty of money to spend).  Before you hit the stores, determine if you need shoes for work or casual activities.  You may need athletic, boots, casual, dress, sexy, sandals, trend, etc.

For extra savings, search out retailers that supply discount shoes for women.  If you do not wish to shop Wal-mart, JCPenney or Target for low cost footwear, you can also try retailers such as TJ Maxx.

Why are women's shoes so important?

Don't ask that question.  Just simply understand that shoes are important to women.  It does not matter the reason, just except the fact.

The female gender can dress for success by wearing oxfords, loafers, or other sorts of ladies dress shoes.  However, if "business" is not your goal, you may wish to become a successful athlete.  If that is the case, you may wish to get your hands on some shoes that help you run faster or jump higher.  It may be a good idea for you to check out a nice pair of women's athletic shoes such as sneakers.  Or possibly, you want to look sexy and throw on some pumps or over the knee boots.  Anyway, the point is that there are many different styles to consider.
