As a young woman I remember going on my first trip to Asia with the ambition of being able to ‘shop up a storm’ on clothes and shoes.

Unfortunately, my hopes were crushed every time I went into a shoe store. The attendants would look at my feet, laugh and then point me in the direction of the men’s shoe department.

My feet are not even that big. I wear a size 40 which is an Australian size 9. Many of my girlfriends have bigger feet than me and some have teeny-tiny feet too. Let’s face it, we all come in different sizes, don’t we!

Bearing feet sizes in mind, in the process of setting up Ankalia, I really wanted to make sure I covered a very wide range of sizing to hopefully accommodate most women.

So, on my sandal website Ankalia.com, I offer a range from size 35 up to size 43. That’s the equivalent of size 4 up to size 12 in Australian sizing. I also offer a heel choice of 2cm or a simple flat leather sole, because hey yeah, we’re all different heights too, plus we all have different feet issues.

Check out our range of 25 sandals designs. They are all handcrafted with love by me, right here in Australia and they are made for women with either teeny-tiny feet or super long feet.
I hope I am helping all the ladies out there that struggle to find pretty, high quality sandals in their preferred size!
Lots of love,
