The Walking Cradle Company places the utmost importance on proper fitting footwear!
The most important question we have for our customer, is this -- 'Are you wearing the proper size/width!?' or 'When was the last time you had your foot professionally measured!?' Often times, the response is "I'm not sure." or "Never."
At The Walking Cradle Co. we know that many problems women encounter are due to wearing the wrong size and/or width! Poor fitting shoes cause immediate problems like discomfort, pain, blisters, pinching, or long term problems such as corns, bunions, hammertoes, shin splints, back problems, and the list goes on! Proper fitting footwear is more important than we often realize!
Most of us remember going to a shoe store with our parents and having our feet measured as a child, when a larger shoe size was inevitably around the corner. It is equally as important to have your foot measured as an adult! Chances are, your feet are not both the same size – this is actually the norm! Women are always telling us that they think their feet are weird because of 'this or that.' Not the case! More than 80% of women we have measured were, in fact, wearing the wrong size and/or width! Many women don’t realize that they need a different width in their shoes, not a necessarily a different size when having their feet measured.
Currently, the most accurate way to measure feet is with a Brannock or similar foot measuring device (for more information on the Brannock device pictured below please visit www.brannock.com). The "tried and tested" way to achieve the best possible fit is by visiting a full-service shoe retailer and having your feet professionally measured and of course, trying on your potential purchase!
At The Walking Cradle Company we've helped women overcome challenges with finding the proper fit by offering shoes in both sizes and widths -- 72 to be exact! We offer Narrow (AA), Medium (B), Wide (D), Wide-Wide (EE) and even a limited selection of Slim (AAA) widths -- we know that finding the proper width is just as important as finding the proper size! We do, however, realize that when shopping for shoes online, our customers do not have the opportunity to have their feet measured while on their phone, tablet or desktop. While we still strongly urge you to do so, we also want to provide some guidelines for buying your Walking Cradles online.
Please read our tips below and then refer to the Size Conversion Chart at the bottom of this page. Please note, these are tools to help determine the best possible fit when ordering online – we still recommend visiting a full-service shoe retailer if possible. Walking Cradles can be found in-store at many wonderful shoe retailers throughout the United States who are experienced in measuring feet for a perfect fit – click on our 'Find A Store' page to find a wonderful retail partner near you!
Our mantra, “It’s A Matter of Fit!” was created because our mission is to provide shoes that fit great and feel amazing! At the end of the day, if you have forgotten to take off your shoes, then you have found the right shoes!
