My husband is an enabler. I wanted to stop and try on some very cute boot-style blue suede shoes that had low, walkable-in heels and which I was quite sure wouldn’t fit, because wide feet. And they brought me a pair and they weren’t wide enough, of course, and I said oh well and Ted said I should ask if they had them in wides. They were already in D widths so I figured that was as wide as they went, but I asked.
And they had them in E width, and they fit. So now I have a very cute pair of blue suede shoes!
