Do you make NARROW widths for women? Do you make a velvet slipper with
a back instead of just slides?


The Cricket December 20, 2012 at 11:28 am

Yes we make a back too.. the shoes are medium width. They should be ok as the style is a loose fit relaxed loafer. They start snug and become your custom fit as your foot warms and makes the impression. So if you do not stretch them out because you have a narrow foot then they remain more snug. NOw, they will not feel like a stiff heavy leather snug tight fit. They ar enot meant to be tight fitting. I hope that helps!
