I am a Canadian who is going to be going down to Bangor, Maine in a couple weeks time. One task for the trip is to find shoes for the wedding. I have really difficult feet to fit and I was hoping to get some suggestions for places to try. (Suggestions for plus size clothing stores that have cute/retro/fashionable would also be helpful.)

I have had my eye on these shoes
for months and despite the price tag, I'm tempted to bite the bullet. Can you help me find some comparable shoes at a lower price point? [more inside]

I'm shopping for shoes and have a wide foot. Last I looked, Zappos
had the best search option for filtering out shoes that would not fit me. Alas, I live in Canada and apparently Zappos Canada recently stopped business
What are my options in Canada for a good online store that has advanced search options like Zappos? Perhaps my only route is going onto company websites - but the only companies that I know for sure have some sort of width measurement system are: Rockport, Sketchers, New Balance....

I'm in NYC, and I want to take my girlfriend shopping for a nice, sexy, classy pair of heels. Think high-quality leather. Only problem? I know nothing about womens' shoes, shopping, or shopping for womens' shoes. Could you recommend some good stores to check out? [more inside]

For the 10th time in a row, I've bought shoes that are too big, and wear them out after I can return them. What are your best methods on making large shoes fit better?

Where should my bridesmaids and I go for dressy shoe shopping in Seattle, besides Nordstrom? The girls want to find some silver shoes, pumps or peeptoes, heels not super high, and under $200. Local/indie/boutique stores are especially good.

How can I buy a pair of shoes only sold in the UK?
There is a pair of Clarks that I want but the model is only available in the UK. The website will only ship with in the UK and the US retail stores can't order them. I have an email into Clarks UK and I'm awaiting an answer.
I don't know anyone in the UK so I cant ask them to buy them and ship them.
Is there a way I can buy them and get them to New Jersey? Some sort of shipping relay?

I've fallen head-over-heels in love with these gray boots
from the Sundance catalogue. I love the color, the heel, the shape, and the overall style. They feel very
me. But they're almost $300 when you include their exorbitant shipping fees. Ouch. Any suggestions on other similar boots or how to find these elsewhere? [more inside]

What's the shoe website that shows you thumbnails of about fifty shoes and, when you click one, assembles a new set of thumbnails that are more similar to the one you clicked? I don't think you can buy off the site. [more inside]

Where can I find dinosaur slippers? Specifically, they must make a "roaring" noise each step you take. Do these even exist or am I imagining them?

I have been looking high and low (without luck) for this pair of sandals--I know they exist, because I saw someone wearing them before I became intent on getting a pair. Oh, how I wish I'd asked her where she got them!
It is a sort of boho-thong sandal with a flat ring that sits between your big and first toes. Thin cords make up the side straps. For a really crappy sketch, click here
. Pardon my drawing skills.
I would prefer a physical store (instant gratification, you know,) but online stores will satisfy my shoe-lust as well. I have googled the world over but have yet to come up with anything close enough.

I need to buy new boots. Requirements: comfortable (I'll be wearing them 70-100 hours a week), medium grippyness (Canada has all this frozen water half of the year), shinable, black, plain looking. I'd like to avoid spending much more than C$200. [more inside]

I'm going crazy trying to find the Nike City Knife II sneakers I wrote about here
(yes, self-link, sorry).
Niketown sent me to Paragon. Paragon sent me to Niketown, or online. Google sent me to my own site! I'm going apeshit!
These shoes must exist, they must: my web buddy Rik Abel spotted them in Brighton (UK) of all places. Since AskMeFi has been so remarkably efficacious in the past - accurate responses, response time on the order of ~10 minutes - I figured I'd give you guys a try before packing my quest in entirely.
