I have some JM oxfords in black (Melton) in size 6. They're the smallest shoe I've been able to find that I'm not embarrassed to wear. Still, they're uninspired and lack elegance. Does anyone have any suggestions about where I can find small readymade shoes that are a little more fashionable?

I asked this question in a different way a few days earlier and was ignored. Surely you all can do better than that...

I'm not attempting to be humorous or offensive in any way, and I suspect you've already considered it, but . . . My wife also has very small feet and has been known to find sneakers among the girls offerings. I have no idea whether there is the same sort of overlap between boys and men's sizes, nor do I know if any suitable shoes might be produced in Boys styles. If so, perhaps Brooks might have something. Beyond that, I can think of nothing else in RTW.

I know if I were in your situation, I wouldn't hesitate to consider this option.

You don't really say what you are looking for. What do you regard as fashionable and elegant - perhaps some examples , even if only found in bigger sizes would help us. One man's meat is another man's poison and all that!

If its quality and elegance you are looking for then look up www.herringshoes.co.uk

Look up Church's seconds in your size - there's always loads more choice in the smaller sizes because, like very large sizes, not so many men have that size of foot.

YOU MAY BE IN FOR A BONANZA! I THINK BENNIE'S HAS SOME J&M HANDMADES LEFT IN YOUR TINY SIZE. READ ABOUT THEM:

I agree. I'm 50 but very slim. I buy my LE polos in a boys XL. No shame in finding clothes or shoes wherever you can. Good luck

Thanks for the responses. I've definitely looked at boys shoes, but they tend to look chunky and unshapely for whatever reason. In response to Leather Man's request, here are a few lace-ups of varying levels of dressiness that I think are just fantastic:

What I like about these shoes: slim profile, thin sole cut super close to the upper, subtle styling.
