I concur with OM's comment on online shops that have free return policy. I have a hard to fit foot and gave up trying to find something in the store. I was more than willing to pay extra to try something on in a store, but no stores carried my size, much less the shoes I was looking for. I became pretty efficient at seeing shoes online that would fit my feet. I have a few hiccups here and there but it is a lot less frustrating than going into a shop and have a salesman try to sell me a shoe that doesn't fit my foot.
