When looking to buy a pair of great shoes, many shoppers may find that youth-sized footwear fits the bill, and the foot, nicely. Many youth sizes run to a size 6, which could fit ladies with feet between a conventional size 7 or 8. This is particularly prudent when tryingto shop for some of the trendy, more-expensive footwear. Kids shoes and boots simply cost less than the styles made for women or men.
A great exampe of this is found with Kids' UGG Boots. Such great boots, everyone wants a pair of these comfy, slouchy boots, regardless of the buyer's age. When comparing kids styles to adult versions, the details of the boots are very similar but there is a significant price differential which makes buying the youth sized boots far more practical. These youth sizes may actually fit better and be more comfortable too. They may include a shorter shaft and upper, or a more narrow ankle, depending on the style and the wearer.

Uggs are a trend that seems to be standing the test of time. Investing in a pair of authentic Ugg boots is not something that will fade out of style anytime soon! In fact, even used or worn boots are fetching some impressive price points through online sellers and internet auction sites. These boots may display wear, holes and even blatant damage, but are still coveted and desirable to buyers. This makes finding ways to save money on brand new Uggs a worthwhile endeavor.

If you are able to convert your shoe size to a youth sized shoe, there is money to be saved. This may also enable you to shop from styles designed with younger audiences in mind, such as sparkly variations or unique patterns, that could be a refreshing addition to your closet. This may only be a viable option for those with ladies feet sized 8 or smaller, but check with any conversion charts offered by the particular shoe manufacturer to be sure. While some folks may find it easier to simply order their usual sizes in adult footwear, other shoppers may find that the twenty dollars, thirty dollars, or more, saved is enough to make the purchase feasible and practical.
