    HI all,

    Where can I get size 9 or 10 slippers/sandals for women in chennai? Almost all the stores have only 8 as their maximum size. Shouldnt women have bigger feet????

    I can understand your pain. my daughter has bigger feet and most of the regular stores do not carry her size and if they do the designs are not so great. i have seen that some small regular stores do carry but not too durable. mochi has fantastic collections in this size. though a little costly or should i say really expensive, but worth every penny to see that happiness as she slipped into a pattern she really liked. hush puppies too has..

    Thanks Shanvy for such a quick reply. Sure i will try in mochi and hush puppies. It is ok if they are a bit expensive...at least I would have a good pair of slippers to walk on. Of late, I am down to wearing these unglamorous rubber chappals.....so you can guess how desperate I am.

    thanks again.

    BTW, where is hush puppies store located???

    Hi

    Did you try Wassons? Also Clarks you may try.

    The Central Leather Research Institute [CLRI] in Adyar makes slippers customized. You may check there too.

    Good luck.

    Hi chennai.

    I am too from chennai, and I too got the same probs.. I am using Bata slippers only brand that has size 9. I am using it for more than two years. But now I prefer to try out variety of new slippers, matching matching, but I am not getting the size I prefer.

    I have sensitive feet, so except BATA brand, I am not using any brands. VKC okay, but I get only 8
