    Hello, what a disappointment after spotting your ballet flats on someone's feet at the supermarket to not be able to benefit from them: I wear a size 42… I nevertheless believed it when I looked on the net and saw that it was an American brand!
    In my youth, it was in the US that it was easy to wear shoes as a '42 woman'.
    If the message could go up: we are many, I am not such a rare copy.
    Thanks in advance.
