Petite feet? We’ve got you covered.

And we don’t mean sending you to the Clarks Kids Section where you got your feet measured aged 8. No thanks, we petites don’t need to relive that!

For women, shoes are not only accessories to an outfit, they can make an outfit, therefore, finding both style and fit is a necessity. We want petite women to find shoes they want to wear without having to compromise or having to venture into the kids’ sections. Generally women’s feet have been getting bigger over time and retailers have been more focused on supplying to that demand shift. If you have petite feet, your work can be cut out for you more than most as not many retailers offer sizes below UK 3 (Eu 36) and even then, they’re an elusive find.

House of Petite have curated 10 pairs of petite sized shoes across specialist and mainstream retailers, stating their smallest sizes from UK 1 – 2.5 (EU 34-35).

Seeing that the flat shoe trend is going strong, we’ve compiled a selection of flats and heels. Remember, although we may be petite, it certainly doesn’t mean we cannot wear flat shoes and we’re not letting anyone else tell us otherwise!

Petite Tip: For boots, trainers and lace up shoes, you can afford to forego 1/2 a size up but in heels, flats, open toe or slingbacks, it’s imperative to find the correct size for your feet, otherwise it can be highly uncomfortable with an element of “I’m wearing my mum’s shoes”…!
