Below is a list of stores that may offer a discount to accommodate different sized shoes:
Nordstrom’s: If you have two different sized feet and are ordering online, you will order two pairs of shoes (one in each size, but they must be at least 1.5 sizes different). You will be charged for one pair and will be asked to send back the shoes that you do not need for credit. If you have the need for only one shoe, a whole pair will be sent to you, and you will be asked to return the unneeded shoe. You will be charged accordingly for only one shoe.
The phone number to call for this program is: (888) 282-6060.
Note: If you order in the store, they follow the same discount and will let you get one pair in different sizes, without extra cost.
LL Bean: LL Bean allows people to order “split sizes”- the size difference can be anything from ½ size difference and any width difference, to a women’s size in one shoe and a men’s size in another shoe. They charge 1.5 times the price of one shoe (for example, if one pair is $60, you will be charged $90). LL Bean ships the two odd sizes to you with no need to return the odd shoes. Both shoes in different sizes must be in stock when the order is placed, because they need to compare the shoes to make sure the colors match before they ship the “split size”pair. Please ask to speak with the Product Support Team when you place the order by calling (800) 441-5713 (Surprisingly enough, it LL Bean sells NB and Brooks!)
Brown’s Catalog: Offers a discount of 20% off each pair and send you the two different sizes that you need.
Brooks Retailer: If you like the Brooks brand, go here to find a retailer near you. Give the store a call and see if they participate in Brooks Mismatch Program to offer you a second pair at a discounted price.
Zappos: Offers free shipping and free returns – may be helpful if you wanted to try out a few pairs (I’d personally rather try them on in store to determine sizing and then call South Sound to see if they carry them, but if you live remote, this may be a good idea for you!)
