Shoe Shopping for “Are You Being Served?”

Miss Glitzy has a confession to make.

Guess what?

She hates shoe shopping!!!

Her size 41 feet has been ostracised in Singapore. No one loves size 41 feet. Pretty shoes come in the largest size of size 9 or 39/40. Or if they are available in size 41, they are usually (in fact, 99% of the time) out of stock.

You can’t believe how many times Miss Glitzy had stepped into a shoe shop, fell in love with a decent pair of shoes, approached the service staff only to hear that earth-shattering news that the shoes aren’t available. Sometimes, some persistent staff would bring out smaller sizes for Miss Glitzy to try (her luck). And that only made things even more heart wrenching!

Interestingly, none of the shoe shop that stocks size 41 has ever offered to check with other branches on availability if the shoes are out of stock. It baffles Miss Glitzy why the service staff refuse to go the extra mile just to help a really love(shoe)lorn customer.

She is determined and resolute to finally get a pair of highly popular to-die-for size 41 ladies’ footwear and the patience of the service staff shall be tested in the process.

Meanwhile, do drop by the site to read some of the missions that the service squad has accomplished!

  3. hi i totally get what you mean! i wear a size 40. it’s so hard finding pretty shoes in my size in SG. the worst part is some salesgirls SCOFF at my shoe size, saying totally unhelpful things like “wah so big ah?”

    i look forward to your report! πŸ™‚

    • oh yes, Kim. I had my fair share of such reaction before! that’s very insensitive.. but these days more and more girls have large shoe sizes, such service staff need to change their attitude!

  5. hi, i found your blog through are you being served.com? i am someone with huge feet as well, size 41 like yours. i know it is so hard to find a decent pair of shoes and almost give up shoe shopping in Asian countries. Have you tried buying from online shops from topshop.com or modcloth.com? the shoes are very adorable and they store size 41! πŸ™‚

    • Hello! Yes, I usually buy shoes online. But I very much prefer to try on the shoes before I purchase them. One of my favourite online shoe shop is shoebuy.com πŸ™‚
