Women's shoe width
When buying new shoes, most women only take the shoe length (the "ordinary" shoe size, i.e. US size 5.5 or 7) into account. But did you know that there is also a second shoe size dimension that you should take into account; shoe width?

Some people with so called "standard" or "normal" foot width (although there really is no "normal width"), will fit shoes OK just shopping from the length size system. But if you got wide or narrow feet, then you will have much to gain by also taking shoe width into account before buying new shoes.
